Abstract
The ancient city of Kumidi (present-day Kamid al-Loz) was one of the major centres in the Lebanese Biqaa Valley during the MB and LB. The German excavations have yielded a number of foreign goods, reflecting the town’s position on the crossroads of important routes between the Lebanese coast, inner Syria and northern Palestine.This contribution focuses on Egyptian imports and egyptianising artefacts, particularly on glyptic evidence. It seeks to reconstruct their distribution pattern within the city through a re-assessment of the objects and their archaeological contexts, offering new insights into the interregional and intraregional relations by which these imports arrived at Kamid al-Loz.
