There is some controversy whether there was slavery at all in ancient Egypt. Egyptian slavery as far as we can determine, was quite different from those of Greece, Rome or the southern states of the USA. Hem generally translated as ‘slave’ and originally meaning body, was seemingly a person with lessened rights dedicated to a certain task such as the service of a god and or the royal administration. They were either prisoners of war or traded by slave merchants.
