Eye of Horus

Eye of Horus
The Rhind Mathematical Papyrus (c.1550BC), by Ahmes (Ѻ), the oldest known mathematician, and or the Akhmin wooden tablets (c.1950), supposedly give the above fractions of the eye of Horus.
In Egyptian mythology, Eye of Horus refers to model that the sky is the "face" of the god Horus, the Egyptian word for face being “Her” or “Hra”, and that the sun and the moon are his two eyes, the sun being the right eye and the moon being the left eye.

Eye of Ra
In other contexts, e.g. of god syncretism, the right eye of Horus is convoluted with or seen as synonymous with the “eye of Ra” (Ѻ), or something to this effect.

The following are related quotes:

“That the heavens, or the skies, were considered to be a face is evident from many allusions. Thus, the sun is frequently called the ‘eye of Horus’, and the moon is also and ‘eye of Horus’, the sun being the right eye, and the moon the left.”
Wallis Budge (1904), The Gods of the Egyptians, Volume One (pg. 467) [1]
