Nebra bronze disk
- I may have missed it, but has there been any discussion on this list
about the Bronze Age bronze disk from Nebra (near Berlin), supposedly
an astronomical device based on the same principles as MUL.APIN?

discussed on either the old ANE or on ANE-2. It has been mentioned in
Explorator several times but to my knowledge no direct connection with the
ANE has been shown and there seems to be no particular connection with
MUL.APIN (<http://www.geocities.com/astrologymulapin/>). Since the disk
is dated to about 1600 BC and MUL.APIN is only known as a late compendium,
any connection would be difficult to show. The disk's homepage (in
German) can be found at <http://www.archlsa.de/sterne/>.
More information in English can be found by googling "nebra bronze disk"
(without the "").
Interesting though it is, I can't see that there is any justification for
discussing it on ANE-2 without some stronger connection with the ANE.
