Berlin Coffin Inscription Ag. Inv. 7227

“[In Demotic] You will live and your name will live, Osiris of Ptolemaios, son of Ptolemaios, whose mother is Dionysia. You will go as a noble ibis and return as a divine falcon. Your ba will create as a great winged scarab. Your body will be received in the holy underworld. Anubis in the role of embalmer will take your beautiful prow rope. He will give you a beautiful position in Alkhai. Your name will be pronounced in the place where Osiris Wennefer the great god is daily. You are favored forever, you are renewed eternally. You are in the presence of Osiris. You are in Weni in the presence of [illegible divine name]. Osiris of Ptolemaios, son of Ptolemaios, whose mother is Dionysia, your name endures for ever and ever. It is written. [In Greek] Ptolemaios, son of Ptolemaios.” – Berlin Coffin Inscription Ag. Inv. 7227
