Pistol: “I have only J.P. Allen's translation, and I did notice he refers to the Sun often rather than Re, I'm curious about this, has he ever stated why?

“In the Pyramid Texts, as elsewhere, the sun was usually called ra. Though often translated as the proper name “Re” or “Ra”, this word means simply “sun”; when the Egyptian language acquired a definite article (nearly a millennium after the Old Kingdom), the god was often called pA-ra, meaning “The Sun.” The present volume reflects the Egyptian usage by translating ra as “Sun” (capitalized) when it refers to the god.” J.P. Allen 2005: 14
