Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses about the two fragments which do not join physically, but the alignment of the writing on both sides makes it possible to fix their position in relation to each other. The magical charm is written on the back of a badly damaged documentary text that is broken away at the top, left and bottom. It was apparently an account, of which are preserved the right side of 14 lines written along the fibers of the recto in a hand that can be assigned to the early or middle third century A.D. The writing used for the Schwindeschema is larger, rounder and more relaxed than the smaller, squarish and more careful lettering of the preserved lines of the command.

Keywords: magical charm; Schwindeschema
