My question exactly! How do we know they referred to the planets? What names did they use, linked to which gods?
I do know, that Mercury was linked (surprisingly enough) to Seth and Mars to Horus (the red), but how about Venus? Joanne Conman's paper "It's About Time" discusses the inner planets (and the new moon) being the only ones not pictured in a boat. Any ideas why? Are there any mentions of those planets in particular?
Please Avry, you can't give up just because of a nine fingered Thoth! There are lots of other fingers here waiting patiently to type more questions... :))
