It was a well-kept secret among historians during the late 19th and early 20th centuries that the practice of magic .

their idealised view of the Greeks and Romans. Today, however, magic is a legitimate area of scholarly .

providing insights into ancient belief systems as well as cultural and social practices.

While magic was discouraged and sometimes even punished in antiquity, it thrived all the same. Authorities publicly .

condemned it, but tended to ignore its powerful hold.

Erotic spells were a popular form of magic. Professional magic practitioners charged fees for writing erotic charms,

making enchanted dolls (sometimes called poppets), and even directing curses against rivals in love.

Magic is widely attested in archaeological evidence, spell books and literature from both Greece and Rome, as well as

Egypt and the Middle East. The Greek Magical Papyri, for example, from Graeco-Roman Egypt, is a large collection of

papyri listing spells for many purposes. The collection was compiled from sources dating from the second century BC

to the fifth century AD, and includes numerous spells of attraction.

Some spells involve making dolls, which were intended to represent the object of desire (usually a woman who was

either unaware or resistant to a would-be admirer). Instructions specified how an erotic doll should be made, what

words should be said over it, and where it should be deposited.

Such an object is a form of sympathetic magic; a type of enchantment that operates along the principle of “like affects

like”. When enacting sympathetic magic with a doll, the spell-caster believes that whatever action is performed on it –

be it physical or psychic – will be transferred to the human it represents.

The best preserved and most notorious magical doll from antiquity, the so-called “Louvre Doll” (4th century AD),

depicts a naked female in kneeling position, bound, and pierced with 13 needles. Fashioned from unbaked clay, the

doll was found in a terracotta vase in Egypt. The accompanying spell, inscribed on a lead tablet, records the woman’s

name as Ptolemais and the man who made the spell, or commissioned a magician to do so, as Sarapammon.

Violent, brutal language

The spells that accompanied such dolls and, indeed, the spells from antiquity on all manner of topics, were not mild in

the language and imagery employed. Ancient spells were often violent, brutal and without any sense of caution or

remorse. In the spell that comes with the Louvre Doll, the language is both frightening and repellent in a modern

context. For example, one part of the spell directed at Ptolemais reads:

Such language is hardly indicative of any emotion pertaining to love, or even attraction. Especially when combined with

the doll, the spell may strike a modern reader as obsessive (perhaps reminiscent of a stalker or online troll) and even

misogynistic. Indeed, rather than seeking love, the intention behind the spell suggests seeking control and domination.

Such were the gender and sexual dynamics of antiquity.

But in a masculine world, in which competition in all aspects of life was intense, and the goal of victory was paramount,

violent language was typical in spells pertaining to anything from success in a court case to the rigging of a chariot

race. Indeed, one theory suggests that the more ferocious the words, the more powerful and effective the spell.
