More > original signification of the Chinese 辰 chén pictogram is demonstrated from graphic, semantic, and phonological perspectives. On the basis of an examination of the extant Chinese material from all historical periods, it is shown that the 辰 chén sign is in fact a representation of a scorpion in striking position as seen in profile.
