Snakes off a pharaoh - possible earliest semitic text seems to involve getting those mummy-loving snakes out of King Unas' mummy-loving tomb.

sorry, didn't mean to sound like an echo chamber! The blog link is particularly interesting.

I've been in that tomb. It is really cool on the inside. The outside, not so much. It is very near one of the somewhat rare step-pyramids.
