Abstract: The Old Kingdom inventory lists in the Abusir papyri record damage to cult equipment. The article argues, based on philological analysis and archaeological parallels from i.a. Dayr al-Barsha that the 'pellets of incense' mentioned in these texts are not real pellets, but stone balls that were covered with a thin layer of incense.
