Hi Tom, in may religons one of the archetypical forms we see is the sun crown, mandala, etc. surrounding the head of the prototype. Christ was often depicted with a quartered circle surrounding his head as a symbol of his divinity, enlightenment. I was wondering if there is any evidence in your studies that this was in any way connected with the myrtle wreath that surrounds the heads of many of the pagan dieties such as Bacchus, Dionysis, etc., also does the symbol of the quartered circle as a sun crown have an Egyptian origin? - the journey of the heavenly bodies 'circling' the earth (quartered).
