I wondered where the boat was in relation to Piscis Austrinus and it is just below, to the side, below the horizon in what the Egyptians would have called the Duat. This raises the possibility that the stories of Djadjaemankh and of Djedi are linked and the folding of the lake to find the fish pendant is indicating an understanding of the constellations in the sky and below the horizon and fits in with the variable hours of the night.
Immediately above the boat is the constellation hydra which according to Table 6.1 in Lull and Belmonte, was considered the constellation htp rdwy our “Lying on his feet” which is a crocodile. The story before Djadjaemankh and the story after Djedi feature crocodiles that takes a villager.
