I can't speak for the arabic, but the Greek text, if it reads το ωαψ does not say anything about a one or an all. το is the singular neuter article in the nominative, but ωαψ does not mean anything at all. Greek words are not allowed to end in ψ (ps), but only vowels, ν (n) and ς (s).

I like that tattoo idea... I wonder if I could make it into a fish eating itsel as opposed to a snake. Thanks for the idea.

This is the only other oroborus that I have seen tatood onto anyone, the first being my own. Mine is around my navel because the circle with the navel as a dot is the chemical symbol for hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe. Mine is the Mojave green rattlesnake, the most deadly snake in Western North America, and has the chakra colors in the back pattern. Very symbolic (for me). Tjo

Thanks, but I the stub does seem to cast doubt on the date of 1600 BC attributed to it in Carl's post. Did even the name of Cleo exist that early? I thought the Cleos were part of the (Greek-origin) Ptolemy dynasty, which only arose just after Alexander the Great (after 320 BC or so). Wiki says the first Ptolemy (Ptolemy Soter I) was one of Alexander's generals. Even 600 BC might be too early.

John, Different Cleopatra. Chrysopoeia of Cleopatra is the title of an alchemy book. See this Wikipedia stub: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysopoeia

Which Cleopatra is that? The date doesn't seem right - she lived well after 1600 BC.
