Døden på Nilen

Fra E.W. Lane (1836)  (An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians):

I once saw a woman paraded through the streets of Cairo, and afterwards taken down to the Nile to be drowned, for having apostasized from the faith of Muhammad, and having married a Christian. Unfortunately, she tattooed a blue cross on her arm, which led to her detection by one of her former friends in a bath. She was mounted upon a high-saddled ass, such as ladies in Egypt usually ride, and very respectably dressed, attended by soldiers, and surrounded by a rabble, who, instead of commiserating, uttered loud imprecations against her. The Kadee (Cadi), who passed sentence upon her, exhorted her, in vain, to return to her former faith.
