That is truely fascinating. Its like each culture has its way of sanctifying (in the sense of segregation) the 5.25 day excess of the solar year, rather than integrating the extra days throughout the months

What was the purpose of cursing the 360 days?

Not sure. The old sungod being grumpy or jealous I suppose. Can't really remember, I'll have to look it up somewhere. The myth is recorded in the "Pyramid Texts" I believe. Thoth is believed by some to be Enoch who "walked with God for 365 years". In Greek he became Hermes and inspired Hermetism during the first centuries AD. www.amazon.com... is a great book of introductary Hermetic litterature.
