In honor of her 20 years at Emory, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Art History Gay Robins was presented with an Egyptian object donated to the Carlos Museum in her name.

To commemorate Robins’ interests in both the Middle Kingdom and in the role of women in Ancient Egypt, the museum was able to acquire, thanks to a donation from her former student and a museum volunteer, a rare stela, or stone tablet, of Satsobek from the Twelfth Dynasty.

Robins serves the museum as a faculty consultant for Ancient Egyptian Art.
