Ostraca II: Analysis
Hardly a greeting as in Ostraca I. This shows awareness of demon's deportment. Get out of here! would be a current equivalent. "Coming forth in the sky" shows this is not scribe Kaii in Ostraca I as he said "coming forth from Sept." The two scribes (Ostraca I and II) used tebt in the same sense, the frontal area with eyes. The use of two eyes is rare. The anomaly must have had two points of illumination or more. Face with eyes (lights); rear with legs (power). Only by being perceived as lying prone can the entity "eat Ta cakes" below him. "His power (kepesh i.e., animal leg, propulsion) of the west is in his traveling." This statement and the following establish a west to east movement. Neterkhert would be the home of the gods equated to heaven. Literally he was a definite threat to all established religions of Kam-t. People or animals were taken. Entity moved around sky, was witnessed subsequent times. "Thou snatches or grabs ears." is another way of saying capturing, taking. "Thou sealest mouths." To cause victims to go into shock? Perhaps abject fear, or inability to discuss incident. First [it] appeared at night but [was] observed at various times of the day. [There was] a daytime appearance in front of key witnesses of authority. [The demon] appears at random, in multiple places and cardinal points; and again concern about the gods.
