3602Richard Steiner and the London Medical Papyrus
- Jan 25, 2007Dear all,
Since Richard Steiner and Semitic texts in Egyptian contexts are the topic
of the hour, I would like to recall his "Northwest Semitic Incantations in
an Egyptian Medical Papyrus of the Fourteenth Century B. C. E." Journal of
Near Eastern Studies, vol. 51, 3, (1992) pp. 191-200, in which this
scholar analyzes and interprets several healing spells in the London
Medical Papyrus, including spell no. 33, which other scholars have dubbed
Keftiu (cf. Haider, Peter, 2001. "Minoan Deities in an Egyptian Medical
Text," in Robert Laffineur and Robin Hägg [eds.], Aegaeum 22 - POTNIA:
Deities and Religion in the Aegean Bronze Age, 479-482. Liège/Austin; and
Kyriakidis, Evangelos, 1999. "Indications on the Nature of the Language of
the Keftiw from Egyptian Sources." Ägypten und Levante XII, 211-219).
