The Papyrus of Ani, which was acquired by the Trustees of the British Museum in the year 1888,is the largest, the most perfect, the best preserved, and the best illuminated of all the papyriwhich date from the second half of the XVIIIth dynasty (about B.C. 1500 to 1400). Its rarevignettes, and hymns, and chapters, and its descriptive and introductory rubrics render it of unique importance for the study of the Book of the Dead, and it takes a high place among theauthoritative texts of the Theban version of that remarkable work. Although it contains less thanone-half of the chapters which are commonly assigned to that version, we may conclude thatAni's exalted official position as Chancellor of the ecclesiastical revenues and endowments of Abydos and Thebes would have ensured a selection of such chapters as would suffice for hisspiritual welfare in the future life. We may therefore regard the Papyrus of Ani as typical of thefuneral book in vogue among the Theban nobles of his time.
