"Sut-Har, the son of Typhon, and the child denoted by the cruciform sign of eight."
"The first circle and circumference of Terui or Troy was made by the Seven Stars with an eighth as their Anush or announcing word, found in Sut, the Anush. This circle or course is expressed by the word kar for an orbit, in many languages, and for time, as the Sanskrit kar, to announce the time, and kara the word; Egyptian khar, the voice or word, as in the name of the solar god Makheru. This kheru or karu, with the initial letter modified, furnishes the following names of number eight: waru, Maori; waru, Polynesian; waru, Saparua; waro, Porne; waru, Bima; war, Papuan; war, Salawati; war, Beak and Mefur; ouar, Arago: oro, Moor; oroi, Mallicollo; arru, Savu; ara, Suanic; walu, Fiji; walu, Timur; walu, Manatoto; walu, Ceram; walo, Cocos Island; walu, ualu, or ualok in the Batta dialects; ualo, Bissayan; ualu, Kayagan; ualo, Tagala; ualo, Iloco."
Taht, the Lord of Sesennu, a region of agitation and distraction, has a curious relationship to the octopus at Rarotonga, where the cuttlefish was the special divinity of the reigning Makea family, and the superstition was related to a remarkable circumstance. There was a particular pool of water near the usual landing place at which passing vessels filled their empty casks. The water was commonly [p.562] crystal-clear, but at a certain phase of the moon it became black. This change was doubtless owing to the presence of cuttlefish that went there to spawn.
The octopus is called the divine cuttlefish by the Hervey Islanders. Its name is eke, meaning a total, the typical octo, height or eight, as in the Manx hoght; ocht, Irish; ocht, Scotch; όκτώ, Greek; okto, Gipsy of Norway; ochto, Tater; akht, Lughman; akt, Tirai; agys, Yakut; achat, Joboka.
Curiously astrologers place Ophiuchus between Scorpio and Sagittarius. Correctly numbered within the 13 Zodiac; they are about on target. The announcer or Sut/Typhon rest somewhere between/among the signs eight through ten.
