Modern Title Text against snakes and scorpions
Summary The text is a composite that can be divided into four main sections: x+I, 1-x+VIII, 15: spells against snake-bites that have already happened with an appeal to the poison to leave the body of the person afflicted; x+VIII, 15- x+XI, 14: spells to prevent snakes from leaving their holes and against scorpions from raising their tails; x+XI, 14-x+XVI, 15: ritual of “the four balls;” x+XVI, 15-x+XVII, 16: spells for capturing snakes. Nb In his review Quack mentions that he located three fragments of this papyrus in Berlin (p. 257) that seem to belong to the first extant column of the papyrus. He also suggests that Goyon’s x+I and x+II should be reversed, and that the fragments of the latter more likely form the right hand portion of the first extant column.
