... symbols have been added, sometimes in very crude fashion. This seems to indicate that seals already engraved were offered for sale with blank spaces in which a few- items chosen by the buyer could be added (cf. Babylonian seals Nos. 213, 228, and 254). The earlier seals of the group show deities wearing simple horned crowns, especially in the introduction scenes where one deity leads a worshiper by the hand toward another deity. Then elaborate horned crowns appear, together with round caps worn by worshipers or deities. Such pieces as Nos. 173-74 and 178 may be assigned with some certainty to the period of the 3d dynasty of Ur. BABYLONIAN SEALS It ...

(41) Consistent with the universal sun-in-crescent , the great father himself stands midway between the peaks of the right and left, states Faber.

These were taken into the sanctuary, where he speaks "in the presence of the elders and fathers of the older gods, creators of men, and of wise beings." The Destruction, it says, takes place through Hathor, with the gilded horns, who is to destroy, and does destroy, men during three days of sailing. "She smote men over the whole land," and completed their destruction, with the help of Ra, who then feels that proper protection will be given to mankind. During the destruction blood was shed freely over the land. This blood ...

... bird of Zeus. It was often shown on a sceptre [9 ]. The falcon, hierax, is obviously sacred with such a name (hieros, sacred). In Egypt Horus was the falcon god. The owl, glaux, was sacred to Athene, who is called Glaukopis, with owl-like appearance. Some owls are called horned owls, but in the case of Athene the staring eye is likely to be the reason for the epithet. Sufferers from jaundice were advised to look at the stonecurlew. This bird has large golden eyes. Plutarch writes: "The bird draws out the malady, which issues, like a stream, through the eyesight." The ...

... school of mineralogy! Charles Wolfe, in his Burial of Sir John Moore after the battle of Corunna, January 16, 1809, said that it was by the struggling moonbeams' misty light, whereas the moon did not shine that night, whether misty or clear; and Coleridge, in the Rime of Me Ancient Mariner, had the horned moon with one bright star Within the nether tip. The astronomy of the modern newspaper is notorious- ridiculous were not the fact of such prevalent ignorance lamentable. Classical writers abounded in stellar allusions far more than do authors of our day; in fact, Quintilian, of our 1st century, in his Institutio Oratoria, insisted that a ...

... of life, but the tools of modern science are here used to effect in substantiating Hahn's synthesis of ancient religions, archaeology, zoology and cultural history to show that the Urus, a large, wild, intractable animal formerly spread widely throughout Asia, Europe and north Africa, was originally sought out for sacrificial purposes because of its enormous crescent-shaped horns. A pertinent argument in favour of this view is the fact that several other herd species such as bison, which were either more common or very much easier to tame, but which did not possess large crescent horns, were not domesticated at this earlier period.
