The magical, wish-fulfilling epithet derives from the names of God.
After receiving a magical epithet from a monk, the lascivious young man transformed his appearance into that of Mansur, the merchant, in order to go to bed with Manur’s wife. The imposter, dressed in yellow at the right, is welcomed home by members of Mansur’s household. They are distressed that he has returned unexpectedly without his horse, assistants, or belongings.
