9864Boomerangs in Ancient Egypt & Narmer
- Feb 9, 2009Are you talking about the Horus on the obverse? He holds a tether to the
nose of the Delta rebel. Is the throw-stick ever shown in a "combat"
rather than hunting scene (usually the fowling in the marshes motif)?

Yes, I went to
(but I had to do a search to get through to it, as the bit in round
brackets did not register, did not light up in blue)
The word ga, 'throw-stick' is offered in a little box; interesting;
It was already saying G before it was borrowed for the proto-alphabet?
One surprise for me was on the Narmer Palette (which I have studied
very closely in the past): the Horus Hawk is holding one; the King is
wielding a 'donger' (club) to smash skulls.
The alleged 'birthing wand' is a puzzle to me.
