(ὧραι, hôrai; tempora anni). [German version] I. Asia Minor/ Egypt The definition of seasons and of a year as a unit of time was largely governed by regularly recurring natural events, such as the floods of the Tigris and Euphrates in Mesopotamia (a short vegetation period and summer drought, the topic of the Sumerian poem about the dispute between summer and winter, see Kindler 19, 604) and of the Nile in Egypt (Nile inundation, vegetation period, summer heat, each lasting for four months). The prevalent periods of precipitation in Iran, Anatolia (four seasons [2. 13]), Assyria and Syria/ Palestine (OT: winter and summer, [4. 1, 305]) determined the sowing and harvesting of the land (Irrigation). Even the often annual military campaigns were generally confined to the favourable seasons. The change of seasons was reflected in mythology and the calendar of cultic festivals, particularly in the notion of the disappearance and return of fertility and vegetation deities, such as Dumuzi (Tammuz) in Mesopotamia, Telipinu in Ḫattuša…

[English version] I. Alter Orient und Ägypten Die recht wenigen altoriental. Zeugnisse, die als K. aufgefaßt werden können, bieten wichtige Hinweise zur Selbstsicht einer Kultur, sind aber noch nicht unter diesem Aspekt behandelt worden. Aitiologien v.a. zu Festen und Kultorten finden sich in der äg. [7], seltener der mesopot. [4. 551f., 559f.] und der hethit. Trad. [4. 571], im AT besonders häufig in Gn (z.B. Gn 28: Bethel). Götter können die ihnen unterstellten Kulturbereiche begründet haben: In Äg. wird dem Gott Thot die Erfindung von Schreiben und Rechnen …
