5 S^~ -Q^ Prefce4 3 l :. SNCE the year 1865, when the late Rev. Edward Hncks, one of the early poneers of the scence of Assyrology, frst made known to the world the exstence of Assyran tablets nscrbed wth texts relatng partly to astrology and partly to what we now call astronomy, students have devoted much tme to the nvestgaton of ths class of documents. Prof. Jules Oppert and the late Fran9os Lenormant stll further advanced our knowledge of astrologcal and other cognate texts n a seres of learned papers, but t was not untl the publcaton of Prof. Sayce's paper,, - X. a., enttled " The Astronomy and Astrology of the Babylonans," that any very consderable progress was made n ths dffcult branch of Assyrology. t s true that the cuneform texts whch formed the base of ths work had already been publshed by Sr Henry Rawlnson n the thrd volume of the "Cuneform nscrptons of Western Asa," but Prof. Sayce was the frst to show the general drft and meanng of ther contents, and to enable us to apprecate the accuracy of the tradtons of Greek and Roman wrters on Babylonan astrology and astronomy. *.-

6 A: Vprll PREFACE. PZEFACEOCL~ Wth the vew of supplementng the labours of the abvce mentoned scholars, have prnted n the frst volum1,e of ths work, n cuneform type, the texts of about two hundred and eghty Astrologcal Reports, of whch only about ffty have htherto been publshed. t s hoped that ths mass of new materal wll be useful to Assyrologsts, who wll now, f we may judge from the descrptons of the tablets of the Kuyunjk Collecton gven by Dr. Bezold n hs Catalogue," have before them the texts of the complete seres of the Reports found at Nneveh. n the second volume have gven translteratons of these texts, and, wherever possble, translatons; where translatons have been mpossble, owng to breaks or the occurrence of words unknown to me, have made no attempt to render them n Englsh. Of the duplcate texts, about two hundred and twenty n, number, the translteratons only have been gven. All mportant varants have been added n the Notes to the translatons. t s unnecessary to nsst upon the mportance of the texts heren publshed, but t may be ponted out that the glosses and explanatons of dffcult phrases, whch they frequently gve, are of the hghest value phlologcally, and they certanly throw consderable lght on the professonal methods adopted by the early Mesopotaman astrologers. Moreover, t s probable that a number of the astrologcal reports were wrtten wth the specal object of nformng the kng and hs people whether certan months would or would not 'tt 1.o A: At 11 contatn thrty days, and f ths be so, we may eventually fnd t necessary to modfy our vews concernng the lengths of the varous months of the Assyran year. Ths pont s more fully treated n the ntroducton. n concluson, my thanks are due to Dr. E. A. Walls Bude for hs valuable help, and to Mr. L. W. Kng for many useful suggestons. London, March st, 900. R.

8 3rtobucfon. ; FoR more than two thousand years the records of Babylonan and Assyran astronomy lay bured and forgotten under the runs of Assyran palaces, and all that was known of the subject came from a few passages n the Bble and n the works of Greek and Roman wrters. To the Hebrews the sorceres of Babylon were an accursed thng, and the prophet saah scoffs at them these words : "Stand now wth thne enchantments., and wth the multtude of thy - sorceres, wheren thou hast laboured from thy youth; f so be thou shalt be able to proft, f so be thou mayest preval. Thou art weared n the multtude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognostcators, stand up, and save thee from these thngs that shall come upon thee." Among Greek wrters Strabo 2 (ded A.D. 24) asserted that the Chaldeans were sklled n astronomy and the castng of horoscopes, and Aelan 3 (3rd century A.D.) mentons the fact that both the Babylonans and Chaldeans ol enjoyed a reputaton for possessng a knowledge of astronomy. Achlles Tatus 4 (6th century) reports the 1 saah xlv, 2. 3 xv,, 6. ~3 xx, ed. Hercher, Pars. 4 E x A;chlle Tao asagoge, ed. Petav.,.

For ths last belef there seems to be some evdence n a statement of Berosus,l to the effect that the god Bel created the stars and sun and moon, and the fve planets. Dodorus Sculus,2 a contemporary of Augustus, tells us that the Babylonan prests observed the poston of certan stars n order to cast horoscopes, and that they nterpreted dreams and derved omens from the movement of brds and from eclpses and earthquakes. The general evdence of' serous wrters leads us to beleve that astrology formed part of the relgous system of the Babylonans, and t certanly exercsed consderable nfluence over the mnds of the dwellers between the Tgrs and the Euphrates., n any case, the reputaton of the Chaldeans, z.e., the Babylonans and Assyrans, for possessng magcal powers was so wdespread, that the very name Chaldean at a comparatvely early date became synonymous wth magcan. From Mesopotama, by way of Greece and Rome, a certan amount of Babylonan' astrology made ts way among the natons of the West, and t s qute probable that many supersttons whch we commonly regard as the pecular product of Western cvsaton, took ther, Ancent Fragments, ed. Cory,. 28,, 29. t f t, -'1-31,! t:g orgn fron those of the early dwellers on the alluval lands of Mesopotama. At the tme when the astrologcal forecasts /(rnted n ths book) were composed, the dstrct of Babylon, rlhere they were wrtten,; was bounded on the northwest by Akkad, on the north-east by Subart, on the south-east by Elam, and on the south-west by Aharru; n other words, Babylona was open to nvason on every sde. The astrologer or the prophet who couldt foretell far thngs for the naton, or dsasters and calamtes for ther enemes, was a man whose words were regarded wth reverence and awe. They were wrtten down as treasures to be preserved for all tme and to serve as models for the beneft of hs successors n offce. The soothsayer was as much a poltcan as the statesman, and he was not slow n usng the ndcatons of poltcal changes to pont the moral of hs astrologcal observatons. Thus the socalled astrologcal forecasts contan elements whch t wll be mpossble for the modern student to explan untl the complete hstory of the poltcal relatonshp of Babylona wth her neghbours s fully known. Nothng was too great or too small to become the subject of an astrologcal forecast, and every event, from a natonal calamty such as famne or dsaster to the army, down to the appearance of the humblest )easant's last born chld, was serously consdered and proved to be the result of causes whch had already been duly recognsed. When Assurbanpal, kng of Assyra, B.c. 668-

10 -t, D "(,1 ). >, "L,,.- 626, added to the royal lbrary at Nneveh, hs contrblton of tabletls ncluded many seres of documents whch related exclusvely to the astrology of the ancent Babylonans, who n turn had borrowed t wth modfcatons from the Sumeran nvaders of the country. Among these must be mentoned the Seres whch was cormmonly called The Day of Bel," and whch was declared by the learned of the tme to have been wrtten n the tme of the great Sargon, kng of Agade, c B.c. Wth such ancent works as these to gude them, the professon of deducng omens from daly events reached such a ptch of mportance j n the last Assyran Empre, that a system of makng perodcal reports came nto beng, and by these the \ kng was nformed of all occurrences n the heavens and on the earth, and the results of astrologcal studes n respect to future events. The heads of the astrologcal professon were men of hgh rank and poston, and ther offce was heredtary (see Dod.,, 29). Under the chef astrologer were a number of offcals who on certan occasons together addressed the kng; thus Rammanu-suma-usur, Nabu-muss and star-suma-rs wrte together (see K. 5470); Rammnuuma-usur and Marduk-sakn-sum wrte together (see : KK. o87, 1197); Rammanu-suma-usur, Arad-la, star-surna-rs and Akkulanu wrte together (see K. 1428) star-suma-rs, Rammanu-suma-usur and Marduk-akn-sum wrte together (see K. 527) and Balast and Nabu-ah-rba wrte together (see KK 565, 569). Among other dutes, t was the duty of : NTRODUCTON. xv.....~~~~~~~~x the astrologers to wrte both omen reports and letters, and certan letters menton, ncdentally, facts whch we should hardly expect to fnd n ths class of document. Thus the wrter of K. 67 excuses hmself from settng out on a journey because the day s not favourable; the wrter of K. 551 tells the story of how a fox made ts way nto the Royal Park of the cty of Assur and took refuge n a lake, but was afterwards caught and klled; and the wrter of Rm. 73 tells the kng that he beleves the twenteth, twenty-second and twenty-ffth days to be lucky' for enterng nto contracts. The varety of the nformaton contaned n these reports s best gathered from the fact that they were sent from ctes so far removed from each-other as Assur n the north and Erech n the south, and t can (only be assumed that they were dspatched by runners or men mounted "on swfr horses:. As reports also come from Dlbat, Kutha, Nppur and Borsppa, all ctes of ancent foundaton, the kng was probably well acquanted wth the general course of events n hs empre. Of the documents prnted n ths book all but three are astrologcal; they are wrtten on rectangular clay tablets varyng n sze from - by 4 nch to 33 by 2-, and they generally bear the sender's name. They contan quotatons from ancent astrologcal works concernng the omens, but t s nterestng to note that, although the jsssma verba were preserved, the nterpretatons were based upon more modern 2

Thus Aharr- orna(r y nmeant the land whch lay close to BBabylona on the west, but as the Babylonan power extended the boundares of the country, Aharr became a name synonymous wth Plhcenca and Palestne, and t s n ths sense that t s used by the astrologers of the later kngdom. Agan, Subartu orgnally meant a certan dstrct n Northern Babylona, but n later tnes t came to mean Assyra proper, and one astrologer, wrtng n Assyran, says "We are Subartu." The astronomcal reports, whch we may subsequently fnd to have been prepared for use n some way by the astrologers, have been omtted from ths volume, because they partake of the nature of letters. We may, however, call attenton n passng to those whch were sent by Nabua of the cty of Assur to Nneveh, for tlhey concern the movements of the Sun and Moon. Thus n K. 603 he reports that the Sun and Moon were seen together on the fourteenth day of the month, and another report of hs states that "we saw the Moon on the twenty-nnth day." From certan passages n the astrologcal tablets t s easy to see that the calculaton of tmes and seasons was one of the chef dutes of the astrologer n Mesopotama, and t seems probable that they were acquanted wth some knd of machne for reckonng tme. n No. 170 (see p. lx) menton s made of an nstrument called abkallu skla, to whch the name B3-rzmstnzu-ukarrad-Mfardk was gven. Now the words abkallu skla mean "measure-governor," and t? s '* j P: ( HE 5. d.t 1 ; s probable that they ndcate the exstence of a knd of clock. t must not be forgotten too, that Sextus Emprcus (A4&d. Mat/h. 21) states that the clepsydra was known to the Chaldeans. Herodotus too, (, o9), says that the Greeks borrowed certan measures of tme from the Babylonans, (and from the tablet ,247, etc., we learn that the Babylonans actually had a tme measure by whch they dvded the day and the nght. Ths measure was called Kasbu, and contaned two hours; two kasbzt formed a watch, and three watches made up the nght. These facts are proved by the report quoted above, n whch we are told that n such and such a day n Nsan the day and nght were balanced, there beng sx kasbu of the day and sx kas& of the nght, the alluson beng, of course, to the vernal equnox, We know from several sources that the Assyran year conssted of twelve months, each contanng usually thrty days, and an ntercalary month called the "second Adar" (the Ve'Adar of the Hebrews): the Babylonan year conssted of the same number of months, but two ntercalary months, Elul and Adar, were added. The examnaton of the texts edted n ths volume ndcates that the Assyrans, lke the Babylonans, had a year composed of lunar months,' and t seems that the object of the astrologcal reports whch relate to'.

The calendar assgns to each month thrty full days; the Junfar month s, however, lttle more than twenty-nne and a half days; therefore some of the calendar months must consst of twenty-nne days only. n proof of ths statement, submt the followng facts. On No. 171 (see p. lx), whch s a report from Balas, we read, "When the Moon does not wat for the Sun" such and such thngs wll happen. The predcton s followed by the words, whch are clearly those of the astrologer, " t appeared on the ffteenth wth the Sun." "When the Moon s not seen wth the Sun on the fourteenth day of Adar" such and such thngs wll happen. The predcton s followed by the words, whch are agan clearly those of the astrologer, "The day wll complete Nsan." Snce the Moon appeared wthout the Sun on the fourteenth, and wth the sun on the 'ffteenth, the Moon and the Sun wll not be n conjuncton before the afternoon of the twenty-nnth day; n ths case the Moon would not be vsble 2 untl the frst day of the next month. t must be noted that wheh the 2 Cf on the perod of the Moon's nvsblty Cuneform ]zscrptons of TVeslern Asa, Vol.,. 51,. 9, " The Moon waned on the twenty-seventh day: we watched for an eclpse of the Sun on. the twenty-eght, twenty-nnth, and thrteth days; the Moon appeared on the frst day [of the next month]." n No. 240 (see p. lxxv) t s also stated that the perod of the Moon's nvsblty may be three days. See also Jensen, Kosmologe, p. 30. A astrologer uses the words "ths nght," he does not refer to the day on whch he s wrtng, but to the eve of the day,.e., last nght. The words " The day wll j complete Nsan" refer to the thrteth day of the month, and we know from other texts that they ndcate that the month wll contan thrty full days. 1 A further proof of ths s that the omen concernng the appearance of the Moon on the frst day s often accompaned by that for "the day n ts proper length,".e., the ordnary full length day n the calendar month. Not nfrequently a note s added to the effect that the day completes the month. Here we must notce n passng the use of the words mrnt ztarra,.e., "the day turns back." The astrologer uses these words n cases where the Moon has been seen wth the Sun on the fourteenth day, to ndcate that the Moon wll appear on the thrteth day of the month, and therefore there wll be only twenty-nne days n the next month (see No. 53, obv. 2, p. xl). n certan cases where the phrase 2mu t zarr occurs, e.g., Nos. 62 and 70, the omens on the tablets relate to the moon on the thrteth day. j. AAn examnaton of No. 171 shows that ths table was wrtten at the end of the year n the month Adar, and that the calendar month corresponded wth the lunar month, and further, snce Nsan (whch began the year) s the only other month mentoned, t s jf 1 Cf the passages:--no. 36, obv. 3 mnat arn.. z.muxxx k"' al[lam], No. 42, obv. 4, sa na a"' 2a Tar u2mzu uallamma, J No. 52, obv., ' l Sn na ar h NAsann mu ugaham.

We are therefore probably rght n assumng that each month dd not necessarly contan thrty days, and there s evdence to show that the ntercalary month was added at a perod less than sx years.l From the. above t s clear that the length of the month was foretold from the appearance of the Moon and Sun on or about the fourteenth day of the month. n No. X 9 the astrologer reports that the Moon was seen on the twelfth day wth the Sun, and he makes use of the phrase "The Moon appears out of ts tme.' t s nterestng to note that Mamondes, n speakng of the Moon, says "When the Moon s seen on the thrteth day, she s called the Moon seen n ts tme," 2 and the same wrter seems to refer to the varaton n the length of the month,.e., whether t contans twenty-nne or thrty days, when he states that Marcheswan and Kslew may be ether "full" or "hollow." 3 1 On the months contanng twenty-nne and thrty days n use at Babylon n the era of the Seleucdae, see Eppng and Strassmaer, Astronomches azs Babylon, p Kddush B.abodesh, ed. Wtter, Jena, 17031, 4. Op. ct., V, 5. From varous ndcatons derved from the astrologcal reports, t s clear that the class of magcans who calculated the length of the months and publshed nformaton concernng them formed a very mportant secton of the Babylonan and Assyran presthood, and t s evdent from the denuncatons hurled aganst them by saah, n whose book they are descrbed as no6d'zsnz lehodasmn (saah, xlv, 3), that they occuped one of the t p e pcs tjerarchy ofbaby on. "-"The Assyrans called the seven planets by the same names by whch they were known n Babylona,.e., Sn (the Moon), Samasa (the Sun), Umn;zauddu (Jupter), Dlbat (Venus), Kamanu (Saturn), Gudud (Mercury), Mztabavrrz_-mt/anu (Mars).

The reports of the Mesopotaman astrologers prove that ther wrters deduced omens from all the celestal bodes known to them, but t s clear that the Moon was the chef source from whch omens were derved. The shape of the Moon's horns was examned wth great care, and t was noted whether they were ponted, "equal," or "unequal." Thus we are told that " f the horns are ponted, the kng wll overcome whatever he goreth "; the acton of the kng s here lkened to the use to whch horns are put by anmals. And agan we read, " When the Moon rder n a charot, 5 the yoke of the kng of Akkad wll prosper. And agan, " When the Moon s low at ts appearance, the submsson [of the people] of a far country wll come to the kng." Halos, both of the Moon and of the Sun, were frutful sources from whch omens were derved. Two halos were known:-one of 22, called tarbasu, and the other of 46, called supuru. Each of these words mean "sheepfold," and t s understood that the Moon s the shepherd of the stars or the celestal See Eppng and Strassmaer, Astronomches aus Babylon, p. 149; Tensen, Kossmologe, p Kosm,. p Kosm., p, 497. See p. v. 5 Colpare the dea of the Greek goddess Selene. S 4 S S S sheep " whch are wthn the halo. The nfluence of the Moon on sheep and cattle upon earth s thus descrbed: "Thy word, 0 Moongod, maketh sheepfold and cattle-pen to floursh." When a tarbasu,.e., smaller halo, was seen to surround the Sun wth the gate,.e., nterrupton, opposte the south, t was thought that a south wnd would blow; but ths has been the experence of all observers of the weather, for the drecton of the nterrupton ndcates that wnd and ran wll come from that quarter. 1 t s well known that Sun-halos are usually seen n the west or south-west when the Sun s low on the horzon, and the lower porton of the halo s cut off by the gloom of the horzon. n European countres 2 storms usually come from those quarters of the sky, and ths s also true for Mesopotama. t s nterestng to note that a tablet (K. 200) s nscrbed wth omens whch are derved from the nterruptons of a halo whch correspond to the four cardnal ponts. From the presence of planets or constellatons wthn the halo of the Moon, numerous omens are derved. The words, "When the Sun stands wthn the halo of the Moon." would at frst sght appear to prove that: the word larba.ts does not mean "halo," but we learn from the notes wrtten by the astrologers (see No. 76) that by the word "Sun" we must understand the " Star of the Sun,".e., Saturn, and we now know that the omen for the Sun n such a case would be gven just as f the 1 Cf Theophrastus, ed.

There are no omens for Venus or Mercury standng n the halo of the Moon, for nether planet can appear near the full Moon. When a star, standng n the halo of the Moon, s descrbed n the omen as Lzbad, a common name for Mercury, t must, of course, be understood to mean smply " planet." Dark halos round the Moon were regarded by the Assyrans, as well as by other natons, as. ndcatons of ran, and t s noteworthy that a Greek wrter lke Theophrastus 2 says, " Dark halos are a sgn of ran, partcularly those seen n the afternoon." Aratus, the Clcan, nforms us that dark solar halos ndcate rough weather. 3 The appearance of the Sun-wthrth-Moon about the fourteenth day was noted wth great care, and for the express purpose of calculatng whether the month would contan twenty-nne or thrty days. The astrologers noted :--() whether the Sun and VMoon were seen together above the horzon; (2) whether they were balanced (stkulu), that s to say, both on the horzon, one settng and the other rsng; (3) whether one had set and the other had not yet rsen, both celestal bodes beng, n consequence, below the horzon, that s to say, nvsble (sta/z).

The "mage" appears at the sun's zenth, to the rght or left of the Sun; n one case four such "mages" are mentoned. cannot help thnkng that these "mages " refer to mock suns. A number of omens were derved from the entrances of planets nto the sgns of the Zodac, and the nfluence of the stars n the varous sectons of t was thought to be very consderable.

From certan texts we learn that the star Akrabuzt was sometmes seen wthn the halo of the Moon. Now accordng to Jensen, 1 Akrabu may mean ether the Scorpon or Venus; but n the case of the star wthn the halo of the Moon, Scorpo, and Scorpo only, s referred to by the astrologer. t s not always easy to follow the tran of reasonng whch guded the dervaton of omens; on the other hand, others are based on common everyday experence. Thus, dark clouds heralded wnd; thunder on the last day of the Moon was followed by steady markets; thunder on a cloudless day ndcated the advent of darkness, storm, and-famne; storms were the heralds of favourable events; earthquakes portended destructon, the nvason of enemes, nsurrectons and the fall of buldngs; eclpses typfed dsturbance, and ther evl effects could only be averted by prayers. n the seres of prayers enttled the Lftng of the Hand," 2 we fnd a number of formulae whch are to be rected wth the object of securng the protecton of the gods durng and after eclpses, and t s certan that they formed no unmportant secton of the devotonal lterature of the Assyrans. For the purpose of accurately recordng partal eclpses, the face of the Moon was dvded nto four parts, and each part was dentfed wth a certan country (see p. lxxxv); 1 Kosmologe, p Kng, Babylonan Magc and Sorcery. Uthe porton to the rght was Akkad, that to the left w ras Elam, the upper part was Aharru, and the lower part Subartu. A total eclpse of the Moon was called al ma7zdt,.e., a "darkness of the countres." The greatest possble care was taken by the astrologers to observe and to record the duraton and extent of partal eclpses. Some of the portents from brths recorded n the Reports are remarkable, and among these may be mentoned one n whch we are told that the wrter f augured an ncrease of power to the kng, because a sow brought forth a pg whch had eght legs and two tals (see p. xc). Ths curous object was, we are told, afterwards preserved n brne. A perusal of the Astrologcal Reports wll *convnce the reader that the style and language n whch they are wrtten are not only somewhat obscure and dffcult grammatcally, but that ther wrters took.anso tther m forcasts and portents as unntellgble to the unntated as possble. Whenever lhey were able they added an alternatve portent..t s possble, ndeed probable, that many of the dffcultes whch encompass the study of Babylonan magc, astrology and sorcery, wll be removed by the publcaton of abundant materal, and that at length we may obtan to a knowledge of the general prncples whch guded the astrologer n formulatng the decsons as to the fu'ture, whch exercsed such a great and lastng nfluence over the mnds of the dwellers n Mesopotama.

For S-l-:-u-t n the text, read S-/--t. Obv. 5-6 gve an explanaton of the phrase 'rdes n a charot,' for Sug has been explaned to mean 'charot-yoke' (see Brown, Proc. Soc. Bbl. Arch., XV, p. 329). Sug occurs n the followng passages ;-(a) No. 49, where the Moon may be surrounded by a halo n Sug, (b) No. 206, where Sug may stand n the Moon's halo, (c) No. 184, where Mercury s as low down (?) n Taurus as Sug, (d) No. 226, where Mercury rses to the mdst of Sug from the place of Sunset n Nsan (.e., Ares-Taurus), (e) No. 244A, where ts 'crcle' may be brght, (f) Nos. 244 and 246, where t may grow dm(?) over the Moon and enter the Moon. From (c) and (d) t s evdently near Taurus, from (a) (d) and (e) t s evdently a group, and from (f) t s evdently a small group. Now t has been suggested to me that, as Mercury cannot be n Oron (one dentfcaton of Sug), and further that the Moon does not devate from the eclptc more than a lttle over, Sug s probably the Pleades.

From No. 86, wrtten for ' Of. : month Ab, we are told that Venus stands before Sbzanna,' and, 'the stars of Sbzanna are brllant,' whch show that t s a constellaton (not a sngle star), near the Eclptc, and, consequently, cannot be Arcturus or Regulus. Further, we are told n No. 203 that Sbzanna stands wthn the halo of 22. As Arcturus s 30 from the Eclptc, and the Moon cannot vary more than 5 8' from the Eclptc, Sbzanna cannot be Arcturus; and snce out of the large constellaton of Bootes, only two small stars at most could stand wthn the halo, t would be assumng too much to say that these stood for the whole of Bootes. From No. 86, as no planet known to the Assyrans could dverge more than 8 from the Eclptc, f we gve a logcal meanng to the words na pn, we may farly consder that Sbzanna s wthn 8 of the Eclptc. Further, from No. 244 B, we learn that () Lbra, and (2) Sbzanna went before (anza pn) the Moon: consequently that whch holds good for Lbra, whch s an Eclptc constellaton, wll also hold good for Sbzanna. Agan, No. 203, wrtten for Nsan, says that Sbzanna stood wthn the Moon's halo. Ful Moon beng then approxmately n Lbra, we may farly assume that ths took place at some pont near the Eclptc between Leo and Sagttarus. From No. 244 B, quoted above, t s obvous that Sbzanna s n or near Lbra, and the only constellaton wthn 8 of the Eclptc at ths pont s Lbra tself. t would seem, therefore, that Sbzanna s another name for Lbra, and t s qute possble that the meanng of Sbzanna, 'Just shepherd of Heaven,' s connected n some way wth the 'Balance.' t s true that n the lst of 'Par-stars' (W.A.., 57, 6), we fnd Lbra mentoned among them as well as the Twnsna-'zd-Sbzna,' but t may be ether because the scrbe, n hs wsh to make a lst of seven twns, just as he has made lsts of seven masu, etc., has repeated the same stars under a dfferent name, or more probably 'the par' of Sbzanna refer to some par outsde Lbra altogether-such as Arcturus and Spca.
