Abstract: The article gives an account of the offering cult in tombs chapels of the Egyptian Old and Middle Kingdoms. In particular, it argues that the so-called Letters to the Dead were transmitted to the 'addressees' in the course of this ritual. Coffin Texts spells 30-41 contain the liturgy of this ritual such as it was used in Middle Kingdom Dayr al-Barsha
