Hymn to Ptah


HYMN TO PTAH The hymn to Ptah was written in the New Kingdom (1550–1069 b.c.) and is inscribed on the funerary stele of Nefer-Re-Bu, who confesses that, because he told a lie, the gods made him blind. Never-Re-Bu is shown at the top of the stele kneeling before Ptah, who sits inside his shrine. Give praise to Ptah, Lord of Maat, King of the Two Lands, Fair of face upon his great seat, The one God among the Ennead, Beloved as king of the Two Lands. May he give life, prosperity, health. . . . On the reverse of the stele he continues: I am a man who swore falsely by Ptah, Lord of   Maat, And he made me see darkness by day. I will declare his might to the fool and the wise. To the small and the great: Beware of Ptah, Lord of Maat! Behold, he does not overlook...

Hieroglyphs


HIEROGLYPHS Script was used by the ancient Egyptians. When the Greeks came to Egypt, they called Egyptian writing “hieroglyphs” or “sacred carvings,” since only the priests could read them. To the ancient Egyptians, the message conveyed by the hieroglyphs was not the only concern. The aesthetics, the shape, and placement of each sign were of great importance as well. In some instances, the hieroglyphs were believed to be magical, and they were rendered with the utmost care. The ancient saying, “magic is everywhere,” suggests their belief in the magical nature of hieroglyphs. Tacitus, the Roman historian, tells us that in the first-century a.d. when the Roman emperor Germanicus visited the ruins of Thebes, he was curious about the hieroglyphic inscript...

Cannibal Hymn


CANNIBAL HYMN A group of inscriptions inside the pyramid of the Fifth Dynasty king, U, A& (2375–2345 B.C.). The PYRAMID. TEXTS suggest the king will have the power of the gods if he devours them. The so-called Cannibal Hymn gained its name in the nineteenth century when Egyptologists first translated the text and wrongly interpreted it as a sign of cannibalism among the ancient Egyptians. The text shows pharaoh Unas’s concern for his safety in the afterlife. One way to attain protection was to steal the power of the gods. On the antechamber east wall of the pyramid, a long inscription states that the king feeds upon the gods to gain their power. One of the verses reads:   ...
