Review: Ephesia Grammata

Don't have an account? Clemens and Hesychius transmit a powerful spell, called Ephesia grammata , composed of six nonsense words. The Getty Hexameters and other hexametric spells contain words of the formula, which have sense in their context. Two tendencies can be established in the evolution of the spells: a the tendency to shorten them, and b the tendency to make the phonic devices predominant, to the detriment of the semantic ones, in such a way that formerly meaningful words become nonsense voces magicae.

What these six words mean is a matter of considerable speculation, if they mean anything at all. They may simply be barbarous words of invocation, devoid of meaning, although their use is clear. They were a spoken phalactary, a protective spell, an alexipharmika. Chester McCown suggests that they may be the names of six separate and distinct daimones.
