The Liturgy of Funerary Offerings

By E. A. Wallis Budge

The Ninety-eighth Ceremony

Two vessels of Amt (?) wine, or wine of Pelusium, with the formula:--

"Osiris Unas, the child which is in the Eye of Horus hath been presented unto thee, and thy mouth hath been opened thereby." 



The Sem priest presenting two vessels of Amt wine.


By the words "child which is in the Eye," we are to understand "pupil of the eye," or "apple of the eye," i.e., that which is guarded as the most precious thing. The same idea exists in Hebrew, compare ?????{! 0x5e ^ !}^?, the "little man" of the eye (Deut. xxxii. 10; Proverbs vii. 2), and in Arabic . We have also "daughter of the eye," ????-????? in Psalm xvii. 8, in Arabic  , and in Ethiopic  = Greek κ?ρη (Deut. xxxii, 10 Psalm xvi. 9; Proverbs vii. 2).
