Formules et commentaires sur la valeur sacrée du scarabée.

This article discusses the translation of additional texts coming from the Edfu version of the myth of Horus. Through these glosses, priests certainly wanted to highlight religious thought through the universality of scarab/winged scarab in architecture. These commentaries appear throughout the "Victory of Winged Disk" story and the ritual of Victory festival studied by Maurice Alliot in Le culte d’Horus à Edfou au temps des Ptolémées.

Those texts come from liturgical literature and don’t have a direct relation with the myth ritual process. It shows once more the skill and ability of Edfu priests to use manuals of the pr ʿnḫ to complete and coordinate all temple texts.
