Notes:

14. ⲡⲁϣⲉ The paiše-disease seems to be a kind of disease which produced burning pustules on the skin, notably on the face and hands. Till (p. 33) notes that in the Scalae of BNF Copte 43 it is translated in Arabic as حبة ,حب ḥabat or ḥubun, literally “grains” which Bsciai (p. 62) translates as “veneream luem, luem gallica”, both terms for syphilis, although there are apparently no clear attestations of syphilis in Afroeurasia at this time. Rather than translating it, here we simply retain the word in transliteration.
