Meaning : UNKNOWN =================================== This sign spread in entire World, as : Aegean (Cretan Hieroglyphic, Linear A and B) syllabogram and sign PA3, Old Canaanite/ Proto-Sinaitic sign Chet/Het/Heth, Phoenician and Old hebrew Chet, Etruscan /Ancient latin letter H, South-Iberian (turdetan) sign Ba, Venetic sign H, Archaic greek Heta/Eta, “Modern” latin letter H. ~~~~~~~ Hypothesis ~~~~ Possible explanations ~~~~~~~~~~~~ From The earliest known depiction linked to the constellation of Orion is a prehistoric (Aurignacianmammoth ivory carving found in a cave in the Ach valley in West Germany in 1979. Archaeologists estimate that it is 32,000 to 38,000 years old. The distinctive pattern of Orion is recognized in numerous cultures around the world, and many myths are associated with it.

Theoretically I should start with the place and the sign attested as the oldest, Gobekli Tepe. Just a small problem: this does not help me at all as long as we do not know what it was used for and what interpretation it had. One of the very few supporting elements would be that in both Sumerians and Chinese the sign seems to be related to the notion of bright, luminous. This fact results from the Sumerian dictionary and from the fact that the Chinese symbols for sun and moon used together give meaning of bright. Now I have no choice but to intuit that for the pick-hunters from Gobekli spikes sign means still bright. But not necessarily obligatory. Because it could represent for them a part or portal of entry into the world beyond the sky. That gateway could be like in the Egyptian lore, constellation Orion.

It is natural that in the hunter-gatherer populations, the constellation Orion is associated exactly with a hunter, so in the Sumerians, with Gilgamesh. From The Ancient Epic of Gilgamesh and the Precession of the Equinox
