Case File: Libel at Kom Ombo

Police Reports

Case Description: After Seth was convicted of the murder of Osiris, Nephthys was interviewed. It was determined that she was not an accomplice, so she was permitted to go free. Later, when Nephthys got back to Kom Ombo, she discovered that one of the temple walls mentioned her guilt, so she sued the stone carvers for libel.

Case Status: The stone carvers were ordered to change the wall. They did and also changed Nephthys's name to Tasenetnofret ("The Good Sister") in the hopes that if they forgot to erase the libel elsewhere, she wouldn't notice. It's a big temple, and re-carving stones is hard.
