TRANSLATION.

ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OP THE GODDESS, ON THE OUTSIDE
OP THE COVER.

1. Iii front of thee is the regent of the West, the goddess Athor :

ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE OP THE GODDESS, ON THE OUTSTDE
OP THE COVER.

2. and behind thee are the two hands of thy genius.

OVER THE HEAD OP THE GODDESS, ON THE OT7TSIDE OP THE COVER.

3. Hail, divine spouse Osiris An^nesraneferab, triumphant!1

4. Thy head is lifted up, there is steel in thy limbs and gold in thy pure

members;2 the vital heat of thy mouth, and the breath coming forth
from thy nostrils is neither driven back3 nor annihilated.
7. It is not Sut, but the goddess Nut who, fillling the heavens with her4
starlight and thy mouth with breath, hath given thee of the breath
which is in her, and of the warmth which is in her mouth.

10. Thy limbs are graven with life; thou livest as the stars live in their

11. seasons of life : let Osiris be awakened, let the prostrate Osiris be roused

up, stand and prevail with thy body!

AT THE FOOT OF THE GODDESS, ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE COVER.

12. Hail, divine spouse Osiris An^nesraneferab, triumphant!

13. whose mother was the " nutar tuat "5 and divine spouse Nitocris, trium-

phant, mayest thou remain in peace !
