The British Museum has an excellent exhibition on the ancient Egyptian’s Book of the Dead. Egyptian royalty would have this book accompany them in their tombs, as it was used as an aid in helping them pass through the Duat (underworld) to the afterlife. Each funerary text was slightly customized to the deceased, but most of the content and magical spells are identical. Below is a quote from around 1200 B.C. of "The Spell for the Mask" from the Book of the Dead:
Anubis speaks, the embalmer, lord of the divine hall: Hail, O beautiful of face, lord of vision...
Your right eye is the night boat,
Your left eye is the day boat,
Your eyebrows are the nine gods.
The crown of your head is Anubis,
The back of your head is Horus,
Your fingers are Thoth...
You repel Seth's band for him
And cast his enemies under his feet for him...
