Abstract of: Spells 33 and 423 from the Pyramid Texts: Translation and Commentary (2017)

Spell 33 and Spell 423 from the Pyramid Texts display so much common ground that a very close relationship is immediately recognizable – but they also exhibit significant differences: enough to warrant different spell numbers. This combination of common roots and diverse developments holds a special promise for sampling and examining the work of the ancient Egyptian editors of these texts.

This paper has two parts: first a chapter about the translation, then one with a detailled explanation of the contents of these spells. Those not interested in grammatical details may want to go straight to the second chapter.

(This paper follows the model of a previous publication: “Spells 224 and 225 from the Pyramid Texts: Translation and Commentary”. That publication is available for download on the same locations as the present paper.)
