Fragment of the Book of the Dead. Hieratic text on an Egyptian linen mummy wrapping. Ptolemaic Period. Preserved as it was received enclosed in sealed plastic envelope by noted antiquities dealer Ferrini. Ex-Bruce P. Ferrini. Well preserved. The script is difficult to read, and it appears that incantation is repeated with the same text written on both lines. The two fragmentary lines of text of this Egyptian linen mummy wrapping were from the Book of the Dead in Hieratic containing solar spells to aid the passage of the soul through the underworld to the bliss of the Field of Ra.
