I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
An on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look upon my works, Ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
This is based upoun "The colossus of Memnon" West Bank, Luxor Egypt, attributed to Memnon but in fact the only remaining part of the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III.
The visage is of Ramses II which can be found nearby at "The Ramasseum" which was thought to have been partially destroyed in an earthquake.
The name Ozymandias is thought to be a corruption of the prenomen User Maat Ra, Setep an Ra. before the royal pharonic title Ra mesu meri Amen.
