Figure 5.82: Mars meeting Saturn on thee Long Denderah zodiac.
According to N.A. Morozov52, the figure of two back-to-back animals symbolizes on Egyptian zodiacs the morning and evening twilights. This figure appears near Venus on the main horoscope on the both Denderah zodiacs (see Figure 5.80).
It is clear why this symbol is associated with Venus, which was considered to be a morning and evening star so the twilight figure seems to be a natural companion for it.
