The amulet of the vulture

The amulet of the vulture

This amulet was intended to cause the power of Isis as the "divine
mother" to be a protection for the deceased, and was made of gold in the
form of a vulture hovering in the air with outstretched wings and holding
in each talon the symbol of "life" and was placed on the neck on the
day of the funeral. With this amulet the CLVIIth Chapter of the Book of
the Dead was associated, and it was ordered by the rubric to it to be
recited over it; this text reads:

"Isis cometh and hovereth over the city, and she goeth about seeking
the secret habitations of Horus as he emergeth from his papyrus swamps,
and she raiseth up his shoulder which is in evil case. He is made one of
the company in the divine boat, and the sovereignty of the whole world
is decreed for him. He hath warred mightily, and he maketh his deeds to
be remembered; he hath made the fear of him to exist and awe of him to
have its being. His mother the mighty lady, protecteth him, and she
hath transferred her power unto him."

The first allusion is to the care
which Isis shewed for Horus when she was bringing him up in the papyrus
swamps, and the second to his combat with Set, whom he vanquished
through the might of Isis.
