The Pyramid Texts of Ancient Egypt were carved on the walls of the pyramids of King Wenis of the end of the Fifth Dynasty and of the rulers of the Sixth Dynasty, and constitute the oldest corpus of Egyptian religious and funerary literature now extant. They are also the least corrupt of all such collections of funerary texts, and are thus `of fundamental importance to the student of Egyptian religion.' First published by Oxford UP in 1969, this important collection of translations has been reprinted.
