Notes: in the CDD Djeme is always considered a toponym, never the name of a god in itself, and Djeme in the latter cases has to be considered a short writing for '(the god of) Djeme'; see also the attestations for U04b Apa Phoibammonos Topos (11645), U04b Apa Paulus Monastery (13098), U04b Ramesseum (11334), U04b Abba Markou Topos (11200) and U04b Syringes (11892); obsolete readings: Mam, Mȝʿ-Rȝ, Qsm; new reading in O. Strasb. 2 897 (P. Zauzich 32), 3 (no toponym)
