This is weird! I was watching a popular science program last night about Ancient Egypt.
They showed an amulet - a piece of inscribed papyrus in a soft leather bag to be worn on the skin. It was an amulet against headache, and the text intended to banish the headache demon!
The translation (in English) ran as follows - though I may have missed out on some words:
"I say to Saiqeq, the demon of the night, whose two eyes are on top of his head and whose tongue is up his behind, I know the names of your father and of your mother. Get away from me..."
The tongue apart, it strongly suggested CH to me...
Anyone want to try it? It's free, no scripts, no docs, you DO need papyrus, though...
