Among the most curious of ancient Egyptian documents are the two papyri, the Abbott and the Amherst, which tell the story of the robberies of the royal tombs at Thebes. At that time the capital city was ruled, under the Governor, by a certain noble named Paser, who was called The Prince of the Town. It is not a question of whether the dead kings of ancient Egypt shall or shall not be allowed to rest in peace in their tombs. The story of the royal tombs of Egypt begins with the excavation of the Sacred City of Osiris, Abydos. The resting-place of a Pharaoh is no longer marked by a star-y-pointing Pyramid, with its temple and causeway. The very richness of the find proved somewhat of an embarrassment to the authorities at the Cairo museum, and it was several years before the results of Heinrich Karl Brugsch's great haul of Pharaohs were properly sorted out and classified.
