WPT RNPT NFRT
The beginning of the year for the ancient Egyptians was not on January 1st, but in the middle of summer, with the flooding of the Nile. The Egyptian word for “year” was rnpt and was closely related to the idea of annual growth and the renewal of the cycle of vegetation; the hieroglyph would represent a branch of palm, leafless and carved for measurement purposes.
