Ephesia Grammata: Ancient History and Modern Practice

Authored by P. Sufenas Virius Lupus

The Ephesia Grammata, the "Ephesian Letters" (also known as the "aski kataski formula" or the "Orphic formula") are a set of well-known magical words from antiquity that appeared in spells, protective amulets, and other sources in the ancient and late antique Mediterranean worlds. This small volume will allow you to learn their history, see examples of their usage in ancient spells and lead tablets, understand their role as protective amulets, become familiar with the Ephesia Grammata as divine grammatical beings and methods to connect with polytheistic deities, and to establish a practice with the letters as a system of divination!
