Meaning of the baby name CYNOCEPHALUS.

  

CYNOCEPHALUS.  "Dog-headed."  A species of baboon (Simia Hamadryas), venerated by the Egyptians as sacred to the deity Thoth.  He was supposed to preside over the balance of the souls in the hall of judgment, because all his members were equal, i.e. terminated in hands.  He was also the emblem of the hour meter, because, if Greek writers are to be believed, he urinated at precisely equal intervals twelve times a day.  He was also one of the guardians of the infernal regions, and one of the genii of Amenti. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).  Cf. Arthurian Cynfarch.
