Studying up on the emergence of scribes in ancient history and their effect on political/social life ... you think Sun journos were bad... this lot were a scruffy and ill-demeanoured lot and shysters abounded among them.
I see that your Dogstar appears in honourable mention as well, Khufu's Great Pyramid aligned with true North to one twentieth of one degree and the small passages off the central chamber aligned to twin polar stars which never disappeared all year round below the Egyptian horizon and of course your friend Sirius B.
I am up to my oxster in sand and symbols here, Trow, and enjoying myself hugely
