Abstract

The Ebers calendar exhibits one sole instance of. This hieroglyph accompanies the name wp rnpt, presumably as a determinative, whereas the 11 other names in the same column conspicuously lack it. It is proposed that marks wp rnpt as the name of a lunar day whereas the 11 other names are the names of lunar months. This contrast between day and month is placed in the context of a comprehensive analysis of the entire Ebers calendar and of the original lunar calendar and its organic relation with the dominant civil calendar that the Ebers calendar is believed to portray.
