Aretalogy is a novel about Alexandria, libraries, memory and the legacy of Ægypt. It is the story of Psammethichus, who encounters the mysterious Library of the Ulterior within the Musaion of Alexandria, and travels to Upper Egypt, to Hermopolis Magna, to discover a destiny which includes the past, and the future.
It is also a story about texts, both real and imaginary, as Psa searches for the legendary Book of Thoth, which never existed, but has inspired countless pens in the Hermetic tradition down through the ages. As Psa leaves the Greek world of Alexandria for Upper Egypt, he comes closer and closer to one essential question: who was Imhotep, and how did that man become a god?
