Hieroglyphics of Horapollo, tr. Alexander Turner Cory, , at sacred-texts.com
To denote manliness combined with temperance, they
delineate a BULL that has a vigorous constitution. Calidissimum enim est huic animali membrum, ita ut semel eo in fœminæ vulvam immisso, vel absque ullo motu semen effutiat. Quod si quando a vulvâ vaccæ aberrans, in alium corporis partem membrum intenderit, tum ejus immodicâ intentione vaccani vulnerat. Quin et temperans est: quippe cum nunquam post conceptum, vaccam ineat.
II. KHEM, one of the principal divinities, the god of generation, his emblem was the bull.
III. Powerful. Compare the translation of the obelisk of Hermapion, Anc. Fr. p. 169, with the square banners of the kings.
