Broker,

Yes, I am certain that the original animistic form of the influence that came to bear on the Sphinx knoll becoming totemised was the panther-leopard. It is the same creature depicted on pillars at Gobekli Tepe. You will have read in The Cygnus Key how I believe the cult at Gobekli Tepe developed into that of Bacchus-Dionysus, which has strong connections with that of Osiris.

So all seems correct here.

Having said this, just as the vulture became the eagle, so the panther-leopard became the lion in Near Eastern and north African cultures, probably by the beginning of the Copper Age.
