Michel and Edgard Mansoor represented the Mansoor Family in Nancy on November 21 and 22, 2009
during festivities honoring the late Dr. (Abbé) Étienne Drioton on the 120th anniversary of his birth. Michel and Edgard Mansoor
presented two pieces (a head and a relief of Akhenaten in pink limestone) from the M.A. Mansoor Amarna Collection to the "Cercle Scientifique Etienne Drioton" (CSED) in recognition of the great French Egyptologist's monumental scientific work in the field of ancient Egyptian Culture and History. The Akhenaten head and relief will be temporarily exhibited in the Musee de Montgeron in Ile-de-France, until such time that a "Musee Drioton" or a "Institut Drioton" is built in Nancy where Dr. Drioton was born.
