CONSTELLATION LEO
Leo has been represented as a lion by numerous
civilizations for thousands of years. One
explanation is that the Sun was among its stars in
Midsummer, and during this time the lions of the
Egyptian desert left their accustomed haunts for the
banks of the Nile, where they could find relief from
the heat in the waters of the inundation. Pliny wrote
that the Egyptians worshipped the stars of Leo
because the rise of their great river was coincident
with the Sun's entrance among them. Distinct
reference is made to Leo in an inscription of the
walls of the Ramesseum at Thebes, which, like
the…
…..
Nile temples generally, was adorned with the animal's
bristles, while on the planisphere of Dendera its
figure is shown standing on an outstretched
serpent. The Egyptian stellar Lion, however,
comprised only a part of the modern constellation,
and in the earliest records some of its stars were
shown as a knife, whereas they now are as a
sickle.
