Cказка об Апопи и Секененра: проблема завершения и интерпретации сюжета

С. 132-166.
Немировский А. А.

The author deals with reconstruction of the probable end of the Tale of Apophis and Seqenenre with the involvement of a wide range of folklore parallels and new arguments; conclusion: this tale could not end with the liberation war of Thebes with the Hyksos or imply such a war; Seqenenre  does not act as a hero of such enterprises, Apophis is recognized as the legitimate king (nsw) in Egypt, which makes mutiny or war against him unacceptable for a pious and good chartacter; The end of the tale was to be that the cunning answer of Sekhenenra (prompted by some helper. presumably inspired by Re or embodying Re's divine power) makes Apophis to reconcile and recognize the power of Re.
