  4. ^ The beginning of this passage, encompassing the glyphs

    , seems corrupt and has been emended in various ways. Gardiner takes it as an otherwise unattested word *ḫtr (to be powerless) and the entire passage as ḫtr.n ḥr r dfꜣ jb (the face is powerless(?) over against one stolid(?)). Allen restores it as ḫr twr, as given here, based on the determinatives (with the assumption that the scribe forgot a
    t
    ). Lichtheim, following Feder, reads ḫrr (gentle/meek) and considers dfꜣ-jb to mean something like ‘timidity, slowness’, reading the whole as ‘He who is gentle, even timid…’.
