Sumerian / Babylonian Heliacal Node Stars Rising and Setting - LexiLine Journal 488

Sumerian / Babylonian Heliacal Node Stars Rising and Setting

Lines are given in sequence according to
Cuneiform Tablet Nr. 86378, British Museum.

MUL.APIN
Heliacal Node Stars Rising and Setting
(Column III, Lines 13 through 33)
Through these Node Stars one can set the origin of this MUL.APIN tablet at ca. 2340 BC since it is the best fit for the node stars shown below. Star identifications are by Andis Kaulins and vary somewhat from Werner Papke. I have the advantage of using a precessional planisphere.

13. The Star Cluster (MUL.MUL) [Pleiades] rises and the Scorpion (GIR.TAB) [head of Scorpio] sets.

14. The Scorpion GIR.TAB rises and the star cluster MUL.MUL sets.

15. The Steer of Heaven GU4.AN.NA [Taurus] rises and SHU.PA [Arcturus] sets.

16. The Loyal Shepherd of Heaven SIPA.ZI.AN.NA [Orion] rises and the fire-arrow-Sagittarius PA.BIL.SAG sets.

17./18. The Lance KAK.SI.SA [Alphard to Monoceros], the Snake MUSH [Hydra] and the Lion UR.GU.LA [Regulus] rise and the Great GU.LA [Capricorn] and the Eagle TI8.MUSHEN [Aquila] set.

19. The Bow BAN [Alphard] and the Star of Kings LUGAL [Duhr, Zosma] rise and the Goat UZ [Hercules] sets.

20. The Star of Eridu NUN.KI [False Cross, Chinese Tseen Ke for psi-Vela, Heaven's Record] and the Raven UGA.MUSHEN [Corvus] rise and the Leopard UD.KA.DUCH.A [Deneb, Cygnus] sets.

21. SHU.PA [Arcturus] d.Enlil rises and the Great Square ASH.IKU [Pegasus] sets.

22. NIN.MACH [Centaurus, in Chinese NAN MUN] rises and Anunitum [Andromeda] sets.

23./24. The Scales (zibanitum) [Libra], the Wolf UR.IDIM [Lupus] and the Wild Boar EN.TE.NA.BAR.CHUM [Centaurus] rise and the agrarian worker LU.CHUN.GA [Perseus] sets.

25. The Scorpion GIR.TAB [Graffias, Scorpio] and the Sitting Dog UR.KU [Serpens Caput] rise and the Star of Eridu NUN.KI [False Cross] and the Star Cluster MUL.MUL [Pleiades] set.

26. GAB.GIR.TAB [Scorpio] and the Goat UZ [Hercules] rise and the Old One SHU.GI [Auriga] and the Loyal Shepherd of Heaven SIPA.ZI.AN.NA [Orion] set.

27./28. The fire-arrow-Sagittarius PA.BIL.SAG, ZA.BA4.BA4 and the sitting gods DINGIR.TUSH.A.MESH [stinger of Scorpio] rise and the Lance KAK.SI.SA [Alphard to Monoceros], the Bow BAN [nu-Hydra] and the Crooked Staff GAM [Camelopardalis] set.
AK: Note that Papke states that the original tablet has DINGIR.GUB.BA.(MESH), the standing gods and not the sitting gods - which Papke has "corrected".

29./30. The Leopard UD.KA.DUCH.A [Cygnus] and the Eagle TI8.(MUSHEN) [Aquila] rise and the Great Twins MASH.TAB.BA.GAL.GAL [Gemini] and the Small Twins MASH.TAB.BA.TUR.TUR [Gemini] set .

31./32. The Great Square ASH.IKU [Pegasus], the Great GU.LA [Capricorn] and the Stag LU.LIM [Cassiopeia] rise and the Lion UR.GU.LA [Leo], the Snake MUSH [Hydra] and the Wild Boar EN.TE.NA.BAR.CHUM [Centaurus] set.

33. The Fish KU6 [Pisces] and the Old One SHU.GI [Auriga] rise and the Seed-Furrow AB.SIN [Virgo] and the Wolf UR.IDIM [Lupus] set.
