Abstract

CMA 14.723 (= P. Cleveland 14.723) belongs to the genre of texts known as Oracular Amuletic Decrees, compositions promulgated by deities to protect the wearer from physical and spiritual dangers. Although the surviving corpus is homogeneous in nature and of limited chronological scope, it is part of a larger 'inoculation programme' to protect juveniles from childhood diseases, accidents and premature death.
