e Unction of Khephnes Ye Egyptian
hosoever anointeth his head with the ointment of Khephnes shall in sleep be grabted true visions of time yet to come
When ye Moon increaseth in her light place in an earthen crucible a goodly quantity of oil of ye Lotus, sprinkle with one once powdered mandragora and stir well with ye forked twig of ye wild thorn bush. Having so done utter ye incantation of Yebsu (taken fron diverse lines in ye papyrus) thus:
I am the Lord of Spirits,
Oridimbai, Sonadir, Episghes,
I am Ubaste, Ptho born of Binui Sphe, Phas;
In the name of Auebothiabathabaithobeuee
Give power to my spell O Nasira Oapkis Shfe,
Give power Chons-in-Thebes-Nefer-hotep, Ophois,
Give power! O Bakaxikhekh!
Add to ye potion pinch of red earth, nine drops natron, for drops balsam of Olibanum and one drop blood (from thy right hand). Combine the whole with a like measure of fat of the gosling and place ye vessel upon ye fire. When all is rendered well and ye dark vapours begin to rise, make ye the Elder Sign and remove from ye flames.
When the unguent has cooled place it within an urn of ye finest alabaster, which thou shalt keep in some secret place (known only to thyself) until thou shalt have need of it.
