The Wise Woman and the Healing Practice (O. OIM 16974)

Abstract

This paper publishes the hieratic ostracon O. OIM 16974 and studies the relation between the wise woman mentioned in the text and healing practices. It is a letter to an unknown woman concerning the wise woman and the death of two infants. The palaeography and the subject, which appears to be the same event recorded on O. Letellier, suggest that this ostracon may be dated to the late Nineteenth Dynasty.
