Abstract

The case of Osiris' adultery with Nephthys was hitherto exclusively known by Plutarch's essay "De Iside et Osiride". However, starting with the so called "Old Coptic" passages in some Greek magical papyri, new and this time authentic Egyptian material has come to light not only confirming the mythological affaires described by Plutarch but also adding further details to the story. This article presents in transcription and translation the many allusions to these mythological affaires as they appear in Papyrus MMA 35.9.21 and tries to show perspectives on the Egyptian texts which probably or certainly still conceal more of this different reading of the myth of Osiris.
