2. Chapter XXVII: The Calendar and its Revision [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... Chapter XXVII The Calendar and its Revision IN the last chapter the so-called Sothic cycle was discussed, and dates of the commencement of the successive cycles were suggested. These dates were arrived at by taking the very simplest way of writing a calendar in pre-temple times, and using the calendar inscriptions in the most natural way. The dates for the coincidence of the heliacal rising of Sirius and the 1st Thoth of the vague year at, or near, the solstice, were 270 B.C. 1728 B.C. 3192 B.C. Here, in limine, we meet with a difficulty which, if it cannot be explained, evidently proves that the Egyptians did not construct and use their calendar in the way we have supposed. We have it on the authority of Censorinus that a Sothic period was completed in 139 A.D., and that there was then a vague year in partial use. It is here that the work of Oppolzer is of such high value to us, he discussed all the statements made by Censorinus, and comes to the conclusion that his account is ...

3. Chapter XXVI: the Sothic Cycle and the Use Made of it [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... state of the problem may be gathered from the fact that the authorities are not yet decided whether many of the dates met with in the inscriptions really belong to a fixed or a vague year! Let us, rather, put ourselves in the place of the old Egyptians, and inquire how, out of the materials they had at hand, a calendar could be constructed in the simplest way. They had the vague year and the Sirius year, so related, as we have seen, that the successive coincidences of the 1st Thoth in both years took place after an interval of 1460 years. Now, for calendar purposes, they wanted not only to know the days of the years, but the years of the cycle. This latter is the only point we need consider here. How were they to do this? The easiest way would be to conceive a great year or annus magnus, consisting of 1460 years, each day of which would represent four years in actual time; and further, to consider everything that happened, which had to be ...

4. Calendars Revisited [The Velikovskian $]
... Egyptians still used a 365-day calendar, in which each of 12 schematic months had its own Egyptian name and was 30 days long. Five epagomenal days were placed at the end of the year, after the 12 months. These five days were special and did not belong to any of the 12 months. At the end of the Ptolemaic period and at the beginning of the Roman period, the Egyptian year began in late August. This traditional year was divided into three seasons: The first season( ht) contained the months Thoth, Phaophi, Athyr, and Choiak; the second season (prt) contained the months Tybi, Mechir, Phamenoth, and Pharmuthi; and the third season (smw) contained the months Pachons, Payni, Epeiphi, and Mesore. (In earlier sources, the months within a given season were numbered rather than named.) The Egyptian seasons were somewhat schematic, like the Egyptian months and like the Egyptian year itself. In any case, the seasons were not in phase with the Nile. For example, the ...

5. Chapter XXV: the Vague and the Sirian Years [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... had exactly measured the year, that flash of bright sunlight would have fallen into the sanctuary just as it did 365 days before. But what they must have found was that, after an interval of four years, it did not fall on the first day of the month, but on the day following it. The true year and the newly-established year of 365 days, then, behaved to each other as shown in the following diagram, when the solstice, representing the beginning of the calendar year, occurred on the 1st Thoth of the newly-established calendar year. We should have, in the subsequent years, the state of things shown in the diagram. The solstice would year by year occur later in relation to the 1st of Thoth. The 1st of Thoth would occur earlier, in relation to the solstice; so that in relation to the established year the solstice would sweep forwards among the days: in relation to the true year the 1st of Thoth would sweep backwards. Let us call the true natural year a fixed, year: it is ...

6. Calendars [Kronos $]
... In earlier sources, the months within a given season were usually numbered rather than named.) Five epagomenal days were placed at the end of the year, after the twelve months. These five days were special, and did not belong to any of the twelve months. At the end of the Ptolemaic period and at the beginning of the Roman period, the Egyptian year began in late August. The year was traditionally divided into three seasons, governed by the Nile. The first or "inundation" season contained the months Thoth, Phaophi, Athyr, and Choiak; the second or "growing" season contained the months Tybi, Mechir, Phamenoth, and Pharmuthi; and the third or "harvest" season (called by some the "deficiency" season) contained the months Pachons, Payni, Epiphi, and Mesore. Notice that these "seasons" are not quite in phase with the Nile, since the rise of the Nile would have begun some ten weeks or so before the "inundation" season. Velikovsky has suggested that the reason ...

... in more depth, we should first turn to Theon, a source whom Depuydt and others before him have cited in support of Sothic dating. We shall find that Theon actually contradicts current Sothic dating assumptions. The Origins of Sothic Dating Sothic dating, of course, starts with Censorinus. In AD 238, this Roman scholar wrote in De Die Natali that the Egyptians had a 365 day calendar without leap year and that on July 20 (12 Calends of August), AD 139, a heliacal rising of Sirius corresponded to 1 Thoth on the Egyptian calendar. Censorinus indicates that the Egyptians had a great year tied to the correspondence of the rising of Sirius with 1 Thoth and that 'we are today in the hundredth year of this Annus Magnus'. According to most practitioners of Sothic dating this means that Sirius rose on July 20 in AD 139 and on July 19 in AD 140-142 [5. It is this calendar, which we shall call 'the Censorinus calendar', that is retrograded for Sothic dating and other chronological purposes. About a century and a ...

... From: SIS Workshop Vol 5 No 2 (Apr 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Mercury and the Tower of Babel Hugh Eggleton In a different work I intend to bring out that what is known as the catastrophe of the Tower of Babel (Babylon) was caused by a close passage of Mercury, Nebo of the Babylonians (heard in the names of Nabopolassar and Nebuchadnezzar), or Thoth of the Egyptians (heard in the name Thutmose). (I. Velikovsky, Ramses II and His Time, p. 102) In Genesis, chapter 11, we read how God destroyed the Tower of Babel, associated with the city of Babylon. as its name indicates. Velikovsky believed that Mercury caused this disaster so I have attempted to reconstruct this event although the difficulty in mustering compelling evidence has resulted in a somewhat speculative effort. Mercury is a small planet viewed from the Earth; it rises little above the horizon and is rarely visible. Despite this it managed to compete very successfully with Mars and Venus in the Babylonian pantheon even when Mars was ...

... not vary for long periods of time and so could be measured by the sidereal year". Aside from the misuse of the expression "fixed star", there are no stars at all that have regular appearances and disappearances that "could be measured by the sidereal year", and only a star lying on the pole of the ecliptic would have a fairly stable declination though even that would be susceptible to the gradual variations in obliquity.) Some of Parker's conclusions are not as "safe" as he seems to imagine. Thoth 1 Egyptian (or I 'ht I Egyptian) did indeed fall on July 20 Julian in +139 and on July 19 Julian in +140, +141, and +142, as Parker says. But the (calculated) heliacal rising of Sirius seems to have fallen on July 20 Julian both for many years before and also for many years after +139. Thoth I Egyptian fell on July 20 Julian in +136,+137,+138, and +139, so that +139 would have been ...

Both were believed to have introduced new forms of religious worship including, almost certainly, flesh sacrifice. c. Both were associated with circumcision and were linked to a phallic cult. A further consideration adds yet more weight to the argument. Abraham, as well as Menes, are clearly related, in terms of general character, to the god Thoth/Hermes. Amongst the Egyptians, Thoth was regarded as the patron of learning and it was believed he bequeathed civilisation to mankind. It was said that he invented language, writing and medicine. The Greeks regarded Thoth (whom they associated with their own Hermes) as one of the oldest gods. He had a frivolous and impetuous nature and, it was suggested, could be destructive. It was said he assisted the Three Fates in the invention of writing, astronomy, the musical scale, the arts of boxing and ...

(3) In earlier times Mercury was known to the Sumerians as Enki. (4) Equally pronounced was the position of Thoth, the planet Mercury of the Egyptian pantheon, the theophoric part of the name Thutmose. (5) For the northern peoples, Mercury was Odin. (6) It is characteristic that in many astronomical texts Mercury, the Greek Hermes, the Babylonian Nebo, the Egyptian Thoth, is portrayed as the planet-god which had in his dominion the physiological capacity of memory in man, (7) as well as that of speech.
