Zodiac
Ara, sometimes referred to as Aitar, is an altar. It was described by the poet Aratos with the words:

“Neath the glowing sting of that huge sign the

Scorpion, near the south, the Altar hangs.”



Authors of astronomical biblical interpretations are divided. Some refer to it as the “Altar of Noah,” erected after the deluge and others as the permanent golden temple of Jerusalem.
