Lorenzo Pignoria’s ‘Mensa Isiaca’ is known to be the first significant study on Egyptology and the history of Ancient Egypt. The name of the work comes from the most famous Egyptian artifact named the Mensa Isiaca, a bronze tablet with Egyptian hieroglyphs on it. Pignoria, after examining the tablet, believed that it was a piece describing Egyptian ritual ceremonies including human sacrifice!

 

Beginning with the 1669 third edition, this work was famously printed and published with another of Pignoria’s works –‘Magnae Deum Matris Idaeae’ – a treatise on the cult of roman gods Cybele and Attis. These works include 37 impressive illustrations of coins, gods, mummies, artifacts, and much more.
