Abstract

In Ancient Egypt, the musician is usually a multipurpose artist. He can simultaneously sing, play an instrument and dance. e study of the terminology related to music and dance shows that the boundaries of these two subjects are hardly ever separable. The same conclusion may also be applied on the iconographical sources. [pp. 315-16]
