Egyptian word for "sarcophagus"

I'm looking for the word that would have been used by the Egyptians for the sarcophagi or coffins. (For those who don't know, sarcophagus is Greek for "flesh eater" since they thought the coffins ate flesh.) Does anyone know? I don't think I've ever come across it in one of my Egyptian books, and would love to use it in a Stargate fic I'm working on.

Please and thanks?
