The present paper explores the name ftk-t / ftk-tA, which was described and entitled in the pyramid texts as the “Butler or the Cupbearer of the Sun God Re” Wdpw Ra. Most Egyptologists do not offer a specific meaning for this name in their translations of the Pyramid Texts. They only refer to it as ftk-t / ftk-tA. The paper aims at identifying the original meaning and linguistic derivations of the name, as well as recognizing the title and the closest meaning to it in the Pyramid Texts. It also defines its religious role, function, and relationship with the Sun God Re and the deceased king in the Pyramid Texts.
