One of the oldest astrological artifacts depicting a horoscope is the Egyptian Zodiac of Dendera dated to 50bc, which was discovered on the ceiling of the Temple of Hathor in Dendera of Central Egypt. The Zodiac of Dendera depicts aspects of Nile Valley astronomy, astrology, agriculture and calendar making. It has two circles of figures in its design. The inner circle of figures move counter-clockwise like the stars, showing the astrological signs of the zodiac circling the North Pole
The Dendera zodiac was found on the roof of the Temple of Hathor.This zodiac shows the constellations from ancient times. This helped date the constrution of the Temple of Hathor. This zodiac was worth alot of money because of how old it is.
The ankh or ankh is the Egyptian hieroglyph representing the NH ˁ word, which means "life." It is an attribute of the Egyptian gods that can keep the loop, or wear one in each hand, arms crossed over the chest. This symbol was called crux ansata Latin ("ankh")...........SOURCE BING IMAGES..........
