The decans are 36 groups of stars (small constellations) used in the Ancient
Egyptian astronomy.
They rose consecutively 連續的 on the horizon 地󱔜線 throughout each earth rotation.
The rising of each decan marked the beginning of a new decanal "hour" (Greek hōra) of
the night for the ancient Egyptians, and they were used as a sidereal star clock beginning
by at least the 9th or 10th Dynasty 王朝 (c. 2100 BCE).
