                        Asvin means possessed of horses in the Veda. Name of two divinities who appear in the sky before
the dawn in a golden chariot, drawn by horses or birds. They were at the head of Aries and they started the Saptarisa
calendar, right where today the ecliptic goes below the celestial equator. The Indus sign on the top left with the Hittite
sign for horse next to it. The relationship between the Chineze and Indus signs that are brought out better in the last
pages but here I point out the chariot sign of China with signs that evolved from it. The Chinese sign for horse is very
similair to this Indus sign (illustration page 26 on the front page)
