Does anyone know where I can find this for free online?  Or even a copy of The Cairo Calendar No.86637?  I saw it on amazon but of course, it was worth hundreds of dollars that I donīt have.  Iīm really close to finishing my ideal festival calendar based on the rise of Sopdet in Cairo, but I donīt want to just rely on the festival list in Eye of the Sun because itīs a compendium of various festival calendars and itīs not necessarily noted from which calendar each festival comes.  Same problem with The Ancient Egyptian Prayer Book.  I need a list based on the monthly dates themselves, not the Julian translations.  Any help would be really appreciated!

The Cairo Calendar is in Bob Brier's book Ancient Egyptian Magic. 

There is also El-Sabban's book Temple Festival Calendars on the subject which is categorized by temple, city and I think time period. 

My suggestion would be to check out these books from the library.  These all have the Kemetic dates listed.

Wish I could.  I was hoping to avoid using the library or buying because there's a very limited selection of English books here in Spain and I'm not even sure if there's inter-library loan here.  I have El-Sabban's book but he doesn't list any calendars for Cairo or Memphis.  Do you know if the Brier book has JUST Cairo or is it a mixture of Cairo with other temple calendars?

It's just the Cairo Calendar which as far as I understand is a papyrus and not etched on a temple wall.

Pfft, that would explain why it isn't in El Sabban's book.  Thanks!
