Venturing through this country, O Bold Troper, you will likely find merchants from faraway lands, wily theives, ill-tempered camels, and [[AmbiguouslyBrown olive-skinned]] seductresses with braided wigs and ''kohl''-painted eyes. Also home to fanatical bald priests in lapis collars and leopard-skin robes, who usually wind up being turned into mummies after calling down the wrath of the gods upon their heads (usually for getting involved with the aforementioned beautiful olive-skinned ''kohl''-painted seductresses in some way). Wretched slaves labour to build pyramids in the scorching sun beneath the whips of merciless overseers... despite the fact that the great monuments were actually built by paid labourers with their own guilds.

* The most important sources:
** Creator/{{Herodotus}} spends a lot of time talking about Egypt in ''Literature/TheHistories''.
** It also figures prominently in Literature/TheBible. In ''[[Literature/BookOfGenesis The Book Of Genesis]]'', Joseph ends up there after his brothers sell him to some Egyptian traders. He works his way up from slavery to prime minister. In ''[[Literature/BookOfExodus The Book Of Exodus]]'', another pharaoh has conquered and enslaved the Israelites, and Moses has to get him to let them go free. Elsewhere, Egypt is referred to, though often as a nation of godless heathens right along with the Canaanites, Assyrians, and other non-Yaweh-worshipping peoples, because of ValuesDissonance.



* ''Literature/TheKaneChronicles'' takes place in the present day but has the Egyptian gods.

* ''Discworld/{{Pyramids}}'' sends up Ancient Egypt to way past eleven. Terry Pratchett creates a country where building pyramids is all and everything and which is up to 3,000 years behind the rest of the Discworld. It takes a gifted Assassin to bring it all crumbling down.
* ''Imprisoned With the Pharaohs'', by Creator/HPLovecraft, is basically Indiana Jones (as played by Creator/HarryHoudini!) on a bad acid trip.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/EarthWindAndFire used a lot of Egyptian themeology in their album covers, stage sets and stage costumes.


Added DiffLines:

** The Egyptian theme carried over to their stage set for the ensuing tour. It can be seen in their concert video, "Live After Death". The stage set was re-created for their 2008 Somewhere Back In Time tour (which coincided with the DVD release of "Live After Death" and can be seen in the documentary, ""Flight 666".


Added DiffLines:

** Dio's stage set for the Last In Line tour had an Egyptian theme, to tie in with the song.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', an animated movie about the story of Exodus.
* ''WesternAnimation/JosephKingOfDreams'', a prequel to the Prince of Egypt that tells the story of Joseph from the Literature/BookOfGenesis.
* It's supposedly set in ArabianNightsDays, but ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' has the aforementioned "character makes the Sphinx's nose fall off" gag. Art/TheSphinx would have already been covered over with sand by the medieval period, not still being worked on.
