The article deals with Mickiewicz's references and allusions to Ancient Egypt. They occur only incidentally and play no more than a marginal role in his work, yet they seem to have been a hard nut to crack for several editors. Their glosses are usually imprecise, and sometimes even downright inaccurate or misleading. The author identifies and discusses three main sources of Mickiewicz's references to the Egypt of the Pharaoh. They are his notes from Joachim Lelewel's lectures on Ancient Egypt, his memories of Egyptian art in the poem 'On the Grecian Room in the Moscow Home of Countess Zeneida Volkonskaya', and several minor 'Egyptological' notes in his historical works (The First Centuries of Polish History, and his translation of Emerson's History).
