A sentence of the ‘Dramatic Text’ of Abydos says, about the stars, that «their bones fall to earth when souls fall to earth» and then «they become fish». The connection between bones, souls and tears that fall from the sky as fish has not yet been explained. Instead, the word ‘bones’ of the Osireion has been amended with the word ‘evil’ based on Carlsberg Papyri. This study aims to give a new interpretation that justifies the lectio difficilior of the Osireion in the light of an astronomical phenomenon.
