Darius the Great's Suez Inscriptions
 
6 8 2013
This took me a few more hours than I thought it would, so I’m going to type up something quick and put
it on my Scribd site.
A year or two ago, while reading one of Budge’s books on the Rosetta Stone, I heard of these 5
quadrilingual inscriptions related to the Suez Canal
 –
and other Egyptian including inscriptions
 –
from
the Persian Empire AKA Achaemenid Empire. ( I couldn’t f 
ind where he mentions them, though, tonight.)It turns out that even though we somehow know he made at least 5 monuments to him building the first
Suez Canal, even though that, only one’s inscriptions survived. Fortunately, that entire inscription is
online, including the Egyptian Hieroglyphic ! I wish I could gather all the Persian Empire inscriptions in
all their languages, and so did U of Chicago in its “Royal Achaemenid Inscriptions Project” –
but it failedprobably due to bureaucracy. Another triumph of Academia ! Not quite.
Here’s where you can get it all :
 
I found the Livius Old Persian corpus long ago, but it doesn’t have the other languages :
Here’s what wiki will tell you , the Modern Hebrew says the same thing :
chive “A History of Egypt Petrie” and go to page 366 of Volume 3 (I had to look around to getall 3 volumes). It tells the whole story up to 1905, which seems to match with later stuff I’ve read of this.
 
And then the key to the whole thing, which you might not be able to get to, though it doesn’t matter
much, is
 
Old Persian Texts
Roland G. KentPage 416 of 415-423
 
On Jstor. He gives the bibliography that includes :
Recueil de travaux relatifs à la philologie et à l'archéologie ..., Volumes 8-11
edited by Gaston Masperowhich is on Google Books for free. You just make your way to :1887, which is actually Volume IX, and to pages 131-157. But you have to know French, as happens often with Egyptian
(it’s that, English or German). Or have a friend who knows French.
 
There used to be an online corpus of Elamite online in Spanish. I’m glad I gathered it because it seems
offline now. The translations were out of date, but it was something, and a plenty.
