Hieroglyphic Plan, by Hermes, of the Ancient Zodiac


From Kircherís OEdipus AEgyptiacus

The inner circle contains the hieroglyph of Hemphta, the triform
and pantamorphic deity. In the six concentric bands surrounding
the inner circle are (from within outward): (1) the numbers of
the zodiacal houses in figures and also in words; (2) the modern
names of the houses; (3) the Greek or the Egyptian names of
the Egyptian deities assigned to the houses; (4) the complete
figures of these deities; (5) the ancient or the modern zodiacal
signs, sometimes both; (6) the number of decans or subdivisions
of the houses. Manly Palmer Hall
