Hieroglyphics of Horapollo, tr. Alexander Turner Cory, , at sacred-texts.com
When they would denote a man who passes fearlessly through the evils which assail him, even until death, they delineate the SKIN OF AN HYÆNA; 1 for if a man gird this skin about himself, and pass
through any of his enemies, he shall be injured by none of them, but passes through fearlessly.
130:1 The Arabs eat the flesh of this animal to free themselves from some particular illness.
