Abstract: A bronze amulet-container was identified in 1968 in one of the tombs of tal-Virtù, Rabat. The talisman contained a rolled-up piece of papyrus bearing a Phoenician script and a figure of the goddess Isis. The script consisted of the words of Isis to ensure a safe journey to the deceased person on his way to the afterlife. The talisman is very egyptianizing in style and its cover represents the head of the falcon deity Horus.
