Ancient Images of Set [Jul. 27th, 2008|01:26 pm]
Set Sightings


Greetings, Friends of Set!

I've made considerable progress on my gallery of ancient images of Set:

Also, I've created a pdf of items from the ancient temple of Set at Naqada:

Do any of you have photos of ancient artifacts featuring Set or are related to his temple at Naqada that you wouldn't mind me placing in these formats? (Credit and a link, of course)

Thank you!
And remember according to Egyptologist Bob Brier, July 29th is Set's birthday! Celebrate it in grand style, everyone!

As much as I love Bob Brier, every book/web page/encyclopedia I've seen says the 16th, and not the 29th.

Am I not looking hard enough? Where is this info? Do I need to reprogram my brain? (oh noes!)

Re: huh?

This is in his _Ancient Egyptian Magic_, published in 1980, available through Amazon, etc. I don't know where they're getting the 16th from. Brier is a very respected Egyptologist. (He did the "Great Courses" course on ancient Egypt, which I recommend highly.)
