512Taurus

Next constellation after Aries is Taurus. On Figure 5.4 we show the symbols representing Taurus on the Egyptian zodiacs and compare them with the Diirer's drawing. Again, there is no problem with recognizing this constellation and there is also a clear resemblance with the Diirer's drawing.

Note that all the symbols have the same type of crescent-like horns. We would like to point out that on Egyptian zodiacs there may be many figures, in particular symbolizing planets, with different shapes of horns. The shape of horns seems to be important in Egyptian astronomical symbolism. For example, we will see later that Saturn is often shown with horns like Taurus, and Jupiter with horns of different type similar to the horns of Aries.
