Odell discusses a difficult passage along lines similar to Gruber's. Who is the figure referred to by the appellation 'your mother', invoked in the passage? Odell considers the possibility that the 'mother' is the cultic superior of the addressed priest, and that this superior carries an honorific, official, maternal title.
