Reposting Heru-sa-Aset Festivals

So I have this book from the library: Perpillou-Thomas, Francoise. Fêtes d’Egypte ptolémaïque et romaine, d’après la documentation papyrologique grecque. (Studia Hellenistica Series 31). (Peeters Publishers, 1993), 88-89. It has tons of festivals in it from the Ptolemaic and Roman periods of Egypt.

Harpokratia is for Heru-pa-khered or Horus, the child. This festival is associated with Aset/Isis and Wesir/Sarapis at Tebtynis (in the Fayoum) and with Aset/Isis and Pramarres at Soknopaiou Nesos (also in the Fayoum).

11 to 12 of Tybi
Festival of Heru-sa-Aset/Harpokratia

14 of Tybi
Festival of Heru-sa-Aset/Harpokratia

16 of Tybi
Festival of Heru-sa-Aset/Harpokratia

19 of Tybi*
Festival of Heru-sa-Aset/Harpokratia

14 of Mechir
Festival of Heru-sa-Aset/Harpokratia

*The text lists this date with “11 or 12 of Tybi instead of 19 of Tybi”, so I’m guessing this date is also a festival day for this holiday.
