Greek - A king of Egypt. His treasury was built by two brothers who left a secret entrance and stole much of his treasure. When one of them was trapped, the other decapitated him to prevent him from revealing the secret. When the surviving brother was found, the king made him guardian of the treasure and gave him his daughter as a wife. A similar story is told of the king, Hyrieus. In another tale he went to the underworld and played dice with Isis who gave him a gold-embroidered napkin to take back. Also identified as Rhampsinitus, Ramses or Ramses.
