Abstract This article presents the editio princeps of an Aramaic magic bowl housed in the Pharmacy Museum (Museu da Farmácia), Lisbon. It contains a spell that seeks to grant success in conception and childbirth for Mihranahid daughter of Aḥat. The spell includes what may be the earliest attested quotation of Gen. 30.22, as well as the often-quoted Zech. 3.2. It also contains an unambiguous rendering of the 'Your face is the face' formula.
