The asteriskos as a critical sign is well-known from a number of ancient sources but research has been focused chiefly on literary papyri. I will discuss eight applications in two different magical papyri, seven of which appear in PGM VII = P.Lond. 121 (3. AD; col. XXIXf. 4. AD) and one in PGM XCIV = P.Ant. II 66 (5. AD). This brief paper seeks to provide an impulse for further investigations in this fringe area of research.
