This is my decree. The bodies of those who died well and bravely by my side shall be delivered to the City of the Dead. Fine linen and armor shall be their burial garments. They shall rest in tombs of stone, and, for their comfort in the second life, they shall have ample treasure. To each man, three measures of gold and nine measures of silver; one vessel each of onyx and alabaster; food and wine in plenty. All this and all honor shall each man enjoy in the second life. There we shall meet again, to stand side by side and serve. ‘Til then, farewell. The gods of Egypt have spoken.
