image description

Anthropomorphic figure with a kind of rooster-head holding three sticks (a bold of lightning?) on the right hand. The left hand has a position like other figures on PGM XXXVI but does not hold anything. The feet are decorated some lines, as if it was wearing socks. The name Seth and magical words associated with the Typhonicos logos are written inside the body and its limbs, and between the legs. The name Io Pakerbēth was written bellow the drawing and circled as a title.
