An Egyptian ankh necklace

For ancient Egyptian scholars, the exact origins of the ankh symbol remains a mystery.
 
Some experts believe that the ankh is an image of a pocket mirror, but this definition is not fully accepted. The British Egyptologist Alan Gardiner hypothesized that the ankh is the image of sandal buckle.
 
This explanation does not seem totally absurd because the sandal is an important symbol in ancient Egypt. Indeed, the pharaoh is frequently represented crushing scorpions with sandals (sandals which represent the enemies countries of Egypt).
 

A pendant from ancient Egypt

The Egyptian territory is divided into forty-two administrative regions, called "nomes", each of which is governed by a "nomarch", responsible to the vizier for his jurisdiction.
 
Temples are the backbone of Egypt's economy. Thus, the temples are not only places of worship, but they are also responsible for collecting and storing the nation's wealth in an administered system of treasuries that redistribute grain and goods.
