Called Sectus,[1] a philosopher, a Libyan,[2] he wrote the Kestoi ["Charmed Girdles"] in 24 books.[3] They are physical treatises, of a sort, containing spells from the words and the charms and certain written characters and other operations. It was against him that Origen wrote, having formulated an objection about the Book of Susannah, the one [inserted] into the [Book of] Daniel.[4]
