Sumerian solar symbol = UD, the sun. Closely resembles Egyptian Akhet, horizon and dawn. Symbol UD was given another phonetic value of equal importance, PIR, source of Greek pyramis and pyre.

In the Sumerian lexical lists, PIR is broken down as PI with ER. PI is knowledge, a symbol of sacred geometry. This refers to the (musical) pitch, to the perfection of it, to the first syllable of words such as perimeter (PI-RE) and perception. ER is source of ‘err’, meaning to wander and is given as ‘to go’. Plato called his character Er for that reason.

UD/PIR, pyramids of the sun, of the day, of time and, of course, the measurement of everything.
