Papyri graecae magicae IV.1-25
This spell calls upon Egyptian and Jewish powers for the purpose of revelation. The text includes initial words of power, brief instructions for the use of the invocation, a series of greetings, and a concluding request for revelation. In syncretistic fashion the invocation combines traditional Egyptian lore with other references. Part of this spell is paralleled in PDM XIV.627-35.

Hail, Osiris, king of the underworld,
lord of embalming,
who is south of Thinis,
who gives answer in Abydos,
who is under the noubs tree in Meroe,
whose glory is in Pashalom.
Bring Sabaoth unto me.
Hail, Althonai, great Eou, very valiant
Bring Michael unto me,
The mighty angel who is with god.
Hail, Anubis, of the district of Hansiese,
You are upon your mountain.
Thoth the great, the great, the wise.

For Akshha Shha is my name,
Sabashha is my true name
Shlot Shlot very valiant is my name
So let the one who is in the underworld
Join the one who is in the air.
Let them arise, enter, and give answer to me
Concerning the matter about which I ask them.
