Quandary Resolution 1761
deify, uraeus, caravansary, imago
It was the first day of the 3rd Month of Shomu, which meant that it was a very favourable day, at least that’s what they were told, the day of the great feast in the southern heaven, when Hathor and every land and body were in festivity, a day during which they learned that indeed the Cairo Calendar was right as it was at Wikalat Bazar'a, an old caravansary, where, to their greatest surprise and joy, they found a splendid lapis-lazuli menat, a necklace with a counterweight, which actually is a percussion instrument sacred to Hathor, the goddess of joy, who as a fire-spitting uraeus resides on the forehead of Ra together forming a parental-imago, and two statuettes, one of Imhotep the Wise holding a papyrus on his knees, a scribe who was deified, and another of Ptah, the primal creator who has fashioned the universe through words.
