"The Great Hymn to the Aten" is the longest of a number of hymn-poems written to the sun-disk deity Aten. Composed in the middle of the 14th century BC, it is attributed to Pharaoh Akhenaten, who radically changed traditional forms of Egyptian religion by replacing them with Atenism. According to the Egyptologist Toby Wilkinson, it is one of the most significant and splendid pieces of poetry to survive from the pre-Homeric world.

This is read by a robot.
Maybe some day there will be a recording of the Great Hymn to Aten read by an actual human being available on Audible. As it is, we're stuck with this horrible robotic narrator. You've been warned.
