Orthodox Egyptologists currently date the Round Zodiac of Dendera to around 50 BC, however, the four "bearers of the sky" (which correspond to the four cardinal points) are aligned with Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, thus clearly indicating a much older era. As these specific alignments occur roughly every 6500 years, what time period do you think the Round Zodiac of Dendera represents?
According to Epiphanius, the 'Feast of the Epiphany', also known as the 'Birth of the Aeon' was celebrated at midnight on January 6th in Alexandria. Given the numerous similarities between Aeon, Jesus, and Osiris, is there any connection between this festival and the rising and/or the reappearance of the constellation of Orion (Osiris) during this period (first to fourth centuries AD)?
What do you think about the hieroglyphs inside the Temple of Hathor in Dendera which appear to depict electric light bulbs? And if you do think they could be depictions of electric light bulbs, given that the Temple of Hathor was refurbished by the Romans, at what time period were the Egyptians harnessing electricity?
