Sophus Helle suggested I read The Stories of Setne Khamwas. They are found in this 3rd Volume of Ancient Egyptian Literature and I am just reading these two Setne stories within this larger book.

My Thoughts

I picked this up at the suggest of Sophus Helle to read The Stories of Setne Khamwas. They are very interesting and reminded me of Indian Jones movies (a quest for an object of inestimable worth, in this case a book) and a certain parable of Jesus (rich man & poor man in the afterlife).
