OF (NHC VI, 7)

A Coptic translation of a found in in a magical papyrus (P. Mimaut) and in at the end of the Hermetic tractate Asclepius (41b). Its incipit (“This is the that they spoke”) suggests that it has been excerpted from a larger work.

The scribe of VI probably inserted this here that it was a suitable conclusion to the preceding tractate, The (NHC VI, 6). This prayer, composed in in Egypt, probably in the second century, was presumably used in Hermetic conventicles.
