The Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts (Writings from the Ancient World)
Completely revised and updated
James P. Allen provides a translation of the oldest corpus of ancient Egyptian religious texts from the six royal pyramids of the Fifth and Sixth Dynasties (ca. 2350-2150 BCE). Allen s revisions take into account recent advances in the understanding of Egyptian grammar.
- Sequential translations based on all available sources, including texts newly discovered in the last decade
- Texts numbered according to the most widely used numbering system with new numbers from the latest 2013 concordance
- Translations reflect the primarily atemporal verbal system of Old Egyptian, which conveys the timeless quality that the text s authors understood the texts to have
