The Egyptians imported, from the Far East, a plant together with its seed that is known for its anaphrodisiac powers, and thus seemed to have anti-Sethian properties. Being dedicated, for that reason, to Osiris, they were used to ensure the protection of the mummy from the god Seth as well as protecting the physician who was dealing with the demons of the diseases associated with that god and placed at the service of the dreadful god Khonsu.
