An Egyptian ankh necklace

The ankh has been used by non-Egyptians since the second century of our era (with the spread of Christianity in the Nile Valley).
Indeed, the ankh was quickly adopted by Egyptian Christians (later called Copts) as a form of the Christian cross. More of that, since the third century, the missions of the Christian monks who left Egypt most probably spread the ancient symbol to distant places.
Thus, the Irish cross and the Armenian cross would have originated with a circle in their center.


A pendant from the Nile Valley

According to the Greek historian Herodotus, "Egypt is a gift from the Nile".

He rightly observed that the river is inseparable from the ancient Egyptian identity, because Egypt would not exist without it. Thus, it was only natural that the inhabitants of the "Black Earth" had made of it an important god in their pantheon (the god Hapi represents the Nile in Egyptian mythology).
