Seite 189 - Osiris was particularly worshipped, and which was one of the places where they supposed him to have been buried, his mysterious history is curiously illustrated * in the sculptures of a small retired chamber, lying nearly over the western adytum of the temple.

Seite 152 - for the priests to carry a gilded boat, ornamented with numerous silver paterte hanging from both its sides, behind which followed a train of matrons and virgins, singing a certain uncouth hymn, in the manner of their country, with a view to propitiate the deity and induce him to return a satisfactory answer.
Seite 355 - the man from whose herd the divine beast has sprung, is the happiest of mortals, and is looked upon with admiration by all people ;" which refutes his previous statement respecting the divine cow : and the assertions of other writers, as well as probability, show that it was not the mother which was chosen to produce a. calf with particular marks, but that the Apis waa selected from its having them.
Seite 279 - During the voyage, several women strike the crotala ; * some men play the flute ; the rest singing and clapping their hands. As they pass near a town, they bring the boat close to the bank. Some of the women continue to sing and play the...
