Translated headword: Osiris-worshipping
Vetting Status: high
This passage is erroneous in the [master] copy, but ends nevertheless with mageu/ousan ["serving as high priestess"], for it writes at the end: "Already he had expelled abominable practices into the hinterlands, and into Alexandria, which used to worship Osiris and served as high priestess of the East."
