Pearl of Great Price PN 1. ENISH-GO-ON-DOSH[1] a governing planet; “the Sun” (Book of Abraham facsimile 2:5); “the power of attraction [it has with the earth]” (J. Smith letter to James A. Bennett, Nov 13, 1843, LDS Archives MS d 155, Box 2, folder 6, sheet 2, page 4)[2]

Possibly hypothetical Egyptian *wnš-ˁЗ-ʼIwnw-tЗš “The-great-sledge-of-the-boundary-of-On” (Sahidic Coptic tōš, toš “boundary, nome”; used in place-name ntoš[3] = Egyptian Arabic ṭwš, ṭāš)[4]; possibly referring to ritual circuit of temple in imitation of circuit of sun[5]; or *wnš kЗ int tЗ.s “Sledge-of-the-vital-force-of-the-vale-of-Earth” -- ʼIwnw and int were actually homonymous and could reflect Coptic on and one.[6]

Val Sederholm suggests comparison with Egyptian Dosh as Mars, and Hor-dosh-dawy, a name for Jupiter. Sederholm also notes the “pilgrimage cycle described in the Egyptian text Leiden T32."[7]

Notes


  1. Compound names of this type are quite common in ancient Egyptian, and hundreds of examples can be found in E. Budge, An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary: With an Index of English Words, King List, and Geographical List with Indexes, List of Hieroglyphic Characters, Coptic and Semitic Alphabets (London: John Murray, 1920/reprint Dover, 1978).
  2. J. Smith, Times & Seasons, IV:373, Nov 13, 1843.
  3. Crum, Coptic Dictionary, 452b. This approach is also used by Hugh Nibley in his 1980 "The Three Facsimiles from the Book of Abraham,” 72-73, citing Woerterbuch, V, 235 – as noted by Val Sederholm.
  4. Behnstedt & Woidich, ägyptisch-arabischen Dialekte, IV:293, V:383.
  5. C. J. Bleeker, Egyptian Festivals, 70,85; E. F. Wente, “Egyptian Religion,” in Freedman, ed., Anchor Bible Dictionary, II:409; Budge, Gods of the Egyptians, I:171; Budge, Book of the Dead (1960), 360 n. 2.
