In all three versions, be it noted, the Macedonian month and day are given first after the year and are followed by their equivalent in the Egyptian calendar. The most recent and thorough discussion of the chronology of the period is that by A. E.

Once again, this is a report of no reliable chronological value. 5. The Ebers Papyrus: This not only describes a calendar year of only 360 days, but also one which does not start on the first day of the month of Thoth. This information confirms that which is contained in the Canopus Decree, according to the evidence of which an Egyptian calendar that went unchanged for 1460 years has never existed. Besides, since it is not even possible to read the name of a pharaoh in the text, this celebrated document is, again, of no chronological use. 6.

In the 1939 -1945 war, pheasants in country districts of England gave reliable early warning of the approach of German aircraft. We have already met the hoopoe with its erectile crest. The ibis was a symbol to the Egyptians of the electrical god, because of its skill at killing snakes, and to the ibis Thoth owes the shape of his head. Thoth armed the gods for their victory over Set. The ichneumon, or mongoose, was sacred to the Egyptians because of a similar skill, that of finding crocodile eggs, and the mongoose is known for its ability to catch snakes. The jackal is sab in Egyptian. I suggest that this may be related to the Latin 'sapere', to be wise. Anubis was the jackal-headed god.

... based on the assumption of a fixed calendar. In view of the anomalous chronology which has resulted from the application of the Sothic theory, it would seem that the simplest explanation lies in the probability of error in this assumption of an unaltered calendar in Egypt through the period from 2000 B.C. to 140 A.D. There is also considerable evidence to indicate that the first month of the Egyptian calendar did not remain unaltered during this period. By the year 721 B.C., and probably as early as 851 B.C., the month Thoth was the first month of the Egyptian calendar.(28) From inscriptions dealing with New Year ceremonies of an earlier era, Brugsch deduced that the month Hathor was the first month of the year at this earlier period.(29) The Ebers papyrus definitely gives the month Menkhet as the first month of the year.(30) In the XXth Dynasty, Hathor is the 4th month and Mesorii is the first.(31) The ease with which the calendar could be altered is indicated by the fact that both ...

... (Plate II). But the cardinal points still retained their importance. The sky goddess Nut was depicted bending over the earth, usually, but not always, with her head to the west and her loins to the east; her arms and legs were the four pillars of the sky. Similarly the legs of the Celestial cow of Nut and Hathor represented the four quarters. The four Horuses of the horizon were guardians of the four' quarters, or Osiris or Horus presided over the south, Set over the north, Thoth over the west and Sapdi over the east. At an earlier period, as has been indicated, Osiris was the "first of the Westerners" and Re the god of the East. In the Pyramid Texts, 204-6, Set is King of the South and Horus King of the North. 9 Dr. S. Birch has translated an Egyptian "magical text", which refers to four mansions, each four stories high, situated at Abydos, and gives the explanation: There are four mansions of life. Osiris ...

... 365 days would coincide with their astronomical year of 365 .25 days only every 1460 years. Censorinus, a Roman author, said that this time period was called a "great year", 'heliacal year" or the year of the God". (Censorinus also described a "cataclysmic" year which was the time between two world catastrophes.) He also said that Sothis was the Egyptian name for Sirius, and that the "great years" begin with the heliacal rising of Sirius on the first morning of the month called Thoth. Heliacal rising designates the rising of a star just prior to sunrise when it is first seen again to the naked eye after its rising has been obscured by the brilliance of sunlight. If a calendar has only 365 days a year instead of 365.25, every four years the calendar is short one day. Therefore, with this calendar, the heliacal rising of a star would occur one day later every four years. Losing one day every four years would make a star rise heliacally on the same day only every 1460 actual ...

From the reliefs found inside it was judged that it had been built by Sethos, and the temple received the name "Sethos-Temple". In 1930 continuing excavations revealed, in the back of the structure, an architrave with the name of Ramses II; later a dedicatory inscription of Merneptah was found cut into the outer facade: in it Merneptah claimed to have completed the structure and to have dedicated it to the deity, presumably Thoth. (1) In the conventional scheme Sethos' reign comes at the end of the Nineteenth Dynasty, following that of Merneptah. Clearly, if Merneptah completed the temple and dedicated it then Sethos could not have participated in its construction. Scholars nevertheless concluded that Sethos must in some sense have completed the building that had already been finished and dedicated by Merneptah. This awkward explanation came to be accepted because the conventional chronology made it necessary. (2) In the revised scheme Sethos is shown to belong to the beginning of ...

But why, then, did the ancients themselves confuse Saturn with the Sun?-- for there is no doubt that the later Egyptians, who passed the fallacy on to the Greeks, looked upon Ra as the embodiment of the solar energy. The answer to this riddle, as to many others of similar kind, is best illustrated by the story of Thamus, a mythological king of Egypt, who, with the following words, reproached Thoth for having invented writing:" 'Most ingenious Theuth [Thoth... one man has the ability to beget arts but the ability to judge of their usefulness or harmfulness... belongs to another; and now you, who are the father of letters, have been led by your affection to ascribe to them a power the opposite of that which they really possess.

Could Velikovsky have read and forgotten Beaumont's books? His method of proof is entirely different; practically everything-- style, format, language, method, and evidence-- is different; only the conclusions are the same. And I should stress that when Deg came into possession of the Beaumont materials, he found them mostly unusable for methodological and theoretical reasons; Beaumont's stress upon Thoth, however, helped convince Deg that a catastrophic age ought to be assigned to the god Hermes and the Planet Mercury. Moreover, with regard to both Velikovsky and de Grazia, too many of Beaumont's conclusions are the same as theirs to explain them as sheer coincidence. I guess that either in the 1920's or 1930's when V. was in Palestine, the books, published in England and dealing with matters of interest to the Near East, made an appearance in the bookstores and were seen by V.

238. The Hermes Connection [Aeon Journal $]
... the Hindu Siva (Shiva). A revitalization of the hermetic legends in Egypt was brought to full fruition by Seti the Great of the Tanitic Dynasty-- in the second half of the 7th century B.C., according to the historical reconstruction of Velikovsky. Seti's royal name was taken from the dark god Set, another Saturnian image or avatar, whom Wallis Budge claimed was equated with Hermes/Mercury, (12) although this identification stems from the late Ptolemaic period. Seti's formalized regnal association was with the comparable Egyptian deity Thoth (12a), who is equated with Hermes. (13) Thus, Velikovsky's historiographic analysis is supported by this association. A comparison of a "dark god" with other ancient attributes pertaining to a bright effulgence presents a duality often encountered in myth. In Roman lore, for example, the Siva-like god of beginnings and endings, who was secondary only to Jupiter (Zeus), was the two-faced Janus Bifrons who also wore the broad-brimmed hat, the petasus. This Janus evolved into a solar deity and became associated ...

... that Coptic is a Semitic language". I know of no Egyptologists or Semitists who call Coptic Semitic. What Talbott may be thinking of is the fact that Amharic, the language of the Copts of Ethiopia (in which context, of course, "Copts" means "Christians" rather than "speakers of Egyptian"), is both geographically African and linguistically Semitic. A third error, this one non-linguistic, occurs on p. 33, where Talbott discusses the Greek god "Hermes, identical in all respects to Egypt's Thoth". Here he exaggerates, to say the least. Were he right, Hermes would have had to be ibis-headed. Yet not only were none of the Greek gods animal-headed, but it was precisely the theriomorphy of the Egyptian deities that the Greeks found most grotesque about Egyptian religion. In other cases, Talbott's statements are, if not erroneous, at least misleading. One such source of potential misunderstanding occurs on p. 28, where he refers to "whatever Greek dialects were spoken in ancient Macedonia". It is ...

... in the calendar of people far to the south where the pattern of seasonal change is quite different. It is false inference to assume that, because their names for the seasons were different, the ancient Egyptians were unaware of environmental cues to seasonal change other than the highly variable stages of the Nile inundation. The point about the Moon was raised to show that the concept of measurement has astronomical reference from the earliest times. Whether it was originally associated with the present moon is not at issue and I assume that the identification of Thoth with the planet Mercury may help clarify the problem. Thoth was clearly a measurer who "computed the times and seasons," (See Budge, E.A.W., Book of the Dead, New York: 1960, p. 343) suggesting that Mercury may once have played a role not unlike that of the Moon in relation to the Earth, giving rise to similar calendric use. But it is difficult to understand why the concept of astronomical measurement is considered to be insufficiently "prepossessing" when the achievement of controlled agriculture ...

Also undermined by this new understanding of Sothis as Venus is the logic behind the identifications of other celestial bodies mentioned in the Pyramid Texts, including S3h and Horus as the Morning Star. Indeed, we would suggest a thorough reevaluation of all astral identifications in the most ancient Egyptian texts, including such apparently obvious celestial bodies as those typically assigned to Ra (the Sun), Thoth (the Moon), and the circumpolar stars. Until now the study of the most ancient texts has been governed by a uniformitarian approach to the ancient cosmos; namely, the belief that the currently most prominent celestial bodies must have been uppermost in the ancients' minds as well. The latter belief is demonstrably erroneous. A new approach to the ancient traditions is warranted, one free from preconceptions based upon the current arrangement of the solar system.

Furthermore, he may have misconstrued the significance of an Old Kingdom Egyptian text which referred to the divinities Horus, Set, Osiris Khenti-irty, Isis, Nephthys and Thoth as a single entity within the framework of the Sed festival. In one chapter of the Pyramid Texts, the same deities are invoked, reviled and most strongly urged to return to their place of origin and the king is forbidden to welcome them.

Here we must concur with Velikovsky's judgment, although one can only shudder at the thought of what course Velikovsky's work might have taken had he retained the lunar identification of Athena. Extrapolating from the Greek sources, Velikovsky identified the ancient Egyptian gods with the planetary regents of their Greek counterparts. Ra, accordingly, was identified with the sun; Thoth with Mercury; Hathor with Venus; and Horus with Jupiter. (3) The same strategy was also employed with regard to the pantheons of Mesopotamia and India. That there are problems with Velikovsky's approach to the ancient sources has been shown by Cardona, Mewhinney, and others.
