What is key here is the intentionality behind the burial. You might bury a body for purely practical reasons, in order to avoid attracting dangerous scavengers and/or to reduce the smell. But when this goes beyond practical elements it is important because that indicates more complex, symbolic and abstract thinking, compassion and care for the dead, and perhaps feelings of mourning and loss.

Most of the curses are what we call binding spells: they aim at binding or inhibiting the performance of a rival. A lot of them have to do with legal cases. They say things like, Bind the tongue and the thoughts of so-and-so, who is about to testify against me on Monday, we have some that are aimed at rival musicians or actors, and a couple that seem to be connected with athletics. We have some that run something like this, Bind Helen, so that she is unsuccessful when she flirts or makes love with Demetrius. But the great majority of them seem to be connected with lawsuits.
