Dendera Zodiac

The Dendera(h) Zodiac is a well-known bas-relief taken from the ceiling of the Hathor temple at Dendera in Egypt. The temple was constructed during the Graeco-Roman and removed by the French in 1821 and moved to Paris, where it can now be viewed in the Louvre.

Inevitably, there is controversy regarding the date that the zodiac was intended to represent. Not unexpectedly, the zodiac has also been drawn into the Atlantis debates with Albert Slosman claiming that zodiac indicates a date of July 27th 9792 for the destruction of Atlantis[0550]!  Slosman’s extreme ideas on the subject greatly influenced the thinking of others, including Patrick Geryl & Gino Ratinckx, Wolter Smit and Carlos Barcelo. Hossam Aboulfotouh has also offered an interpretation of the Dendera Zodiac(a) , with many more available on the internet.
