The ancient Egyptians had nothing on curses. These ” curse tablets ” are proof of that. Although these curses seemed to be mainly aimed at this Greek family’s tavern ( I believe that good bars are pretty much SACRED anyway ).
I have a BIG book about ancient mythology & folklore which might have something on curse tablets. It’s a different subject than what I’ve covered before, but I have a veritable gallimifrey of interests from A – Z / zed. & interesting. Religious & spiritual practices from all over this crazy blue marble capture my interest, engage my curiosity & keep my mind from crashing like a computer hard – drive with a virus.
If curiosity is MY ” curse “, then I’m pleased as punch to have it. 🙂 Maybe there are ancient curse tablets out there with curses wishing undying curiosity on people – Now wouldn’t THAT be the coolest ?
May your curse ( or what you may perceive as a curse ) turn out to be your blessing !
The lead tablets, which were meant to curse tavern keepers in ancient Athens, were found in the grave of a young woman who lived 2,400 years ago.
