xena was an unofficial name for the object larger than pluto found out in the kuiper belt. it would have only been the 12th planet if the first
proposal was accepted by the IAU that made the asteroid ceres, pluto and charon planets. this proposal was thrown out (and rightfully so).
technically, assuming that the old 9 planet was still in existence, "xena" would have been the 10th planet from the sun, not the 12th.
btw, the object has an offical name, now. it is not "xena", that is just what the discoverer (whose name escapes me at this time) was calling it.
it was a nickname.
back to the subject on hand. does this prove anything? nah, but it's possible. if the ancient tablature was correctly deciphered, there could be
other objects that revolve around our sun that the aliens consider planets that we don't. maybe their definition is different than ours. i mean,
we've only had a definition for a few months
or maybe there are other large ojects orbiting closer than "xena" is to our sun that we just
haven't discovered yet. we're FAR from charting all the sky.
so in short, this really proves nothing, but maybe someone else out there knows a little more about this subject than i do to make things more
