A magical spell written in Coptic , an Egyptian language that uses the Greek alphabet, surrounds the image. Just fragments of text have survived over the years, with part of the deciphered spell reading, "I call upon you … who is Christ the god of Israel …" The next part of the spell includes the words "you will dissolve" and mentions "every child of Adam…," who according to the Hebrew Bible was the first man on Earth and lived with a woman named Eve in the Garden of Eden before being expelled by God.

The fragmented text also mentions Ahitophel, a man who betrayed King David, according to the Hebrew Bible. The papyrus seems to have been one page of a larger text, possibly a handbook that was used by a magician, Korshi said. The hypothetical magician's clients may have been impressed by the image on the papyrus.
The fragmentary text makes it hard to determine what exactly the spell was used for, but Dosoo said he believes that it may have been related to love, possibly in cases where there was a complex situation such as a love triangle, or where a man was in love with a woman he couldn't marry. The papyrus is at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, but how it got there is a mystery. The university has no records indicating who sold or donated the papyrus, or when the acquisition occurred, Dosoo said.
The university has a collection of about papyri, the bulk of which were purchased by or donated to the university between and ; it wasn't until that the university stopped purchasing papyri or accepting them as donations. Many of these papyri were purchased from Anton and Michael Fackelmann, who were antiquities dealers that were active in Austria in the s and s. Among these papyri is a " Handbook of Ritual Power " as modern-day researchers call it , which is a lengthy magical text that also dates back around 1, years. However, while that handbook is from the Fackelmanns, it's not clear if the newly published magical papyrus is also from them.
The university's collection history poses a problem for scholars.
