The Achtiname of Muhammad
The Achtiname of Muhammad, also known as the Covenant or (Holy) Testament (Testamentum) of Muhammad, is a document or ahdname which purports to be a charter or writ ratified by the Prophet Muhammad granting protection and other privileges to the monks of Saint Catherine’s Monastery, Mount Sinai. It is sealed with an imprint representing Muhammad’s hand.
The document claims that the Prophet (570-633) had personally granted by charter the rights and privileges to all Christians “far and near”. It consists of several clauses on such topics as the protection of Christians living under Islamic rule as well as pilgrims on their way to monasteries, freedom of worship and movement, freedom to appoint their own judges and to own and maintain their property, exemption from military service and taxes, and the right to protection in war.

Georgian Eye Jewellery; 1790-1820

“Eye miniatures came into fashion at the end of the 18th century. In France, where eye miniature seems to have originated, the eye as symbol of watchfulness was adopted by the state police for buckles and belts. In Britain it had a role as a love token, with some eye miniatures glistening with a trompe-l’oeil tear, or a diamond set to imitate a tear. Most eye miniatures are unsigned, due to the minuteness of the background, and often the name of the person whose eye is depicted is unknown.”

collective-history:

Imhotep (c. 2667-2648 BCE)
Imhotep was chief architect to the Egyptian pharaoh and was responsible for the Step Pyramid. During his lifetime he was often represented as a priest and was considered a man of great learning. He does not seem to have practised as a doctor during his life, but medical texts describing the diagnosis and treatment of over 200 diseases were attributed to him. After his death Imhotep began to be worshipped as a god, and miracles were reported at his shrines.
When the Greeks conquered Egypt in 332 BCE, they saw many similarities between Imhotep and their medical god Asklepios and continued to build temples to him.
In 1930 a papyrus named after the American collector Edwin Smith was translated. Written about 1700 BCE, it described Egyptian surgical and medical practice, with little of the magical content that was normally associated with Egyptian medicine. The work described ideas at least a thousand years old, which have been attributed to Imhotep. However, as with Hippocrates, it is not clear whether Imhotep himself, or his students or followers, wrote the text.
