P. Michigan XVI

A Greek Love Charm from Egypt (P.Mich. 757)
Volume 30
David Martinez


This volume consists of an edition of a third/fourth century CE love charm inscribed on a lead tablet, in which a certain Ailourion invokes the chthonic deities and spirits of the dead to bring him his beloved Kopria. The spell documents a multicultural pantheon of deities as well as a hierarchical structure of demonic beings including ghosts and “restless” spirits, such as those of the prematurely dead.
