Johannes Dumichen, a German Egyptologist, born at Wissholz, Silesia, Oct. 15, 1833. He studied at the university of Berlin, went several times to Egypt, and each time made valuable discoveries relating to the ancient history and language of that country. He returned to Egypt in 1871 with the archaeological expedition sent out by the emperor of Germany. One of his remarkable discoveries is a history of the first foundation and successive restorations of the temple of Denderah, which he found in a secret passage, and of which he has given a translation in his Bauurkunde der Tempelanlage ron Dendera (Leipsic, 1865). He has also published Historische Inschriften altagyptischer Denkmaler, in den Jahren 1863-'5 an Ort und Stelle gesammelt (1867-'70); Altagyptische Tempelinschriften (1867); Die Flotte einer dgyptischen Konigin aus dem 17. Jahrhun-dert vor unserer Zeitrechnung (1868); Der Fel-sentempel von Abu-Simbel (1869); and Photo-graphische Resultate einer auf' Befehl des Kaisers von Deutschland nach Aegypten entsende-ten archaologischen Expedition, mit Erlau-terungen (Berlin, 1872).
