Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, Hesiod's Theogony, and his Works and Days, The Bibliotheca, and the Argonautica. The Aeneid by Virgil is required to complete the Trojan Trilogy.

As far as Egyptian I don't think there are any translations of primary documents that compare to the Greek ones I mentioned. Most of the non fiction stuff on I've come across is either dry and boring or biased against the Egyptians (aka written a about a hundred years ago.)

Norse Gods, check the The Prose Edda, The Poetic Edda, Gesta Danorum, Ynglinga saga, and the Sagas. Then read the Lord of the Rings and Silmarillion by J R R Tolkien... You'll deja vu like a mother fucker.
