Numbers and the Netjer
« on: May 03, 2021, 08:20:46 am »
Hello all!

Your quiet, lurking Tahotep here with a question hopefully you all can aid with. I'm struggling to find it elsewhere.

Since Wepwawet Wiki has vanished, I was hoping someone out there had information about numbers and their association with various Netjeri. Any and all Netjer information in regards to what numbers they are often associated with is welcome.

Thank you!

Em hotep, Tahotep!

I found the paper Reflections of Number symbolism on Egyptian sacred architecture by Zeinab Feisal useful. You can read it here for free, but I don't know whether it addresses your questions.

And I'm told that Richard H. Wilkinson's book Symbol & Magic in Egyptian Art is useful, specifically the chapter "Meaning in Many: The Symbolism of Numbers", but I don't have this book so cannot confirm.

Thank you! I'll see if I can possibly find a copy of that book at the library and cast a glance over the paper you shared.

Just bumping again in case anyone had information about number associations with specific dieties.
