UTTERANCE 230 (The Two Levels of Second Sight in the activity of the Eye)

This selection is located in the pyramid of Un-is on the west wall of the Sarcophagus Chamber. Faulkner is assuming in his translation, that the third person Un-is was originally in the first person. The Science of Egyptology (along with Faulkner)  classifies this Utterance as one of "a series of spells against snakes and other noxious creatures."
