It was not intentional, but "a number of fortune" [posting 13] was left out.
In the course of "shaping up" LexiLine.com for
uniformity, and due to knowledge gained from my recent decipherment of the megaliths, I have been able to revise and correct the MUL.APIN readings by Papke, Hunger and Pingree, which I had put on my site earlier with explanations on my part, but few changes.
Due to the fact that I have identified the Path of En.Lil as the path of the stars WITHIN the ring of the Milky Way - as we already saw for the Ermitage Planisphere, and it is incredible that not even I saw this before - it has been possible to resolve the critical issue of the identification of the Babylonian star KAK.SI.SA which Hunger and Pingree claim to be Sirius - this is impossible, since it lies OUTSIDE the Milky Way. But similarly, Papke's identification of Procyon as KAK.SI.SA as Procyon does not hold water, though it is more correct, when one uses a precessional planishere and matches the stars to heliacal risings and settings as listed in the cuneiform tablets.
Using such a planisphere by Heifetz it is possible to identify the Lance Star in question as having a shaft of Monoceros and the tip of the lance is the star Alphard in Hydra, sticking into Hydra. Armed with this knowledge it was possible to identify ALL the stars of MUL.APIN, many of which have either remained unidentifed by Papke, Hunger and Pingree or have been falsely identified.
