I think that you can get an answer to your question if you look at ancient India, which did in fact trade with ancient Egypt. I say so as the number 27 is of great significance to the Indians (even today). It refers to the number of nakshatras (lunar mansions or asterisms). The Indians originally used 28 nakshatras (which is also what the ancient Chinese used). Over time, the Indians dropped it to 27. The one nakshatra which was dropped was Abhijit, an asterism comprising of Alpha, Epsilon and Zeta Lyrae (Vega).

The nakshatras (and hence the number 27) thus became the basis for much astrologically based Hindu rituals and practices, and even vastushastra (from which the Chinese feng shui was derived) in India. Vasthushastra is used extensively in the building of Hindu, and later Buddhist, temples. You can see an example of how the nakshatras were used in temple architecture in Borobudur, Indonesia. [www.borobudur.tv].

I simply wouldn’t be surprised if the ancient Egyptians were also familiar with the nakshatras as well.
