During my tour of the exhibit I came upon the name and a few statuettes of the warlike pharaoh Rameses. This was the Rameses with whom Moses contended and whose troops became lost at sea without quitting their chariots. Interestingly, archeological records are mum on the topics of the 10 plagues from Heaven, the Hebrew slaves escaping the land of bondage, and the Egyptian army being engulfed by a Red Sea tidal wave. Yet if the minimalist tale of Tut is any help, it illustrates that the pre-Ptolemaic Egyptians were not of a mind to keep records of unmentionable embarrassments.
