I have with me two scrolls which tell stories from the time when Heracleopolis was the supreme city. One of them is a speech to the Pharaoh from a wise man named Ipuwer, and is commonly called "The Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage." The other is a political anecdote from that period, "The Tale of the Peasant and the Workman." Would you like me to read one to you?
Click here to hear the Ipuwer papyrus.
Click here if you'd rather hear about "The Peasant and the Workman."
Or go here, if you want to visit the Temple of Relief.
