In the story of Djedi, the third child of Ruddjedet is foretold to bring the numbers of the house of Thoth to Khufu. Each child that is born is said to have limbs of gold and a scalp of real Lapis Lazuli. According to Lull and Belmonte p 179, the inscription on the Zodiac of Dendara reads “(This is) The sky of golf, the sky of gold, (it is) Isis the Great, mother of the god (Horus), lady of the Primordial Hill at Iunut (Dendara), (this is) the sky of gold. His great divinities are the stars: Horus-son-of-Isis, his god of the morning, Sokar his god of light, Ihy, his visible star; Osiris the moon, Sah is his god; Sopdet is his goddess”
Thus the gold reference, possibly links to the sky. Lapis Lazuli with its deep blue colour and speckles of bronze/gold is also evocative of the stars in the dusk. Each child being delivered appears to use the glyph A17A in gardiners list. Reviewing the Dendara Zodiac, there are two potential “child” signs, but only one is representative of A17A which appears inside a disc upon the scales. Discussing this part of the zodiac on p181, Lull and Belmonte note “Libra, however, as represented by the Scales is first attested in Egypt, where the autumnal equinoctial point was located in late antiquity. The figure of a child within a disk is located upon the scales. This is represented alse with the sign of the horizon akhet (3ht) in the astronomical ceiling of the later hypostyle hall, as shown in Figure 6.19. We suggest this might represent the god Hor-em-akhet...”
Horemakhet means “Horus on the Horizon” and aside from being a god is also a title given to the Great Sphinx of Giza. Do we have here, an attestation of the sphinx being in existence in the time of Khufu?
