 Virtual Egyptian - Head bead with eyes and prunts, 500-300 BC
Indeed, the Museo Arqueologico in Madrid displays a string of beads found in the Balearic island of Ibiza and dated to 500-300 BC that is identical to ours, and a tomb of 400-200 BC in the necropolis of Fontana Noa in Sardinia contained a slightly more complex variation on the design (see Moscati 1988:489, 484).
The earliest types of eye beads (first half of the 1st millennium BC) were made by applying a trail from a molten rod of glass of a contrasting color onto a base bead—essentially drawing circles on the surface of the bead.
Around the 7th century BC, the stratified technique became most common, where the craftsman made the eye and its ring by applying pre-made disks of decreasing size on top of each other.

 The Nile & 'First Time'
Along with 2350 BC, which is another 'anchor date' derived from the Giza design, assigned to the northern peak of the Nile 'Great Bend' at latitude 19.5°N, Giza's archaeoastronomical scheme manages to turn the ancient river into a timeline.
In any case, using these two anchor dates/points - 10,600 BC at the equator and 2350 BC at 19.5°N - I was then able to decode the 'Nile timeline'.
This does not present a problem, for whether c.10,500 BC or c.11, 500 BC, the OCT theory remains the same.

 Angkor Wat   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Alternative scholars, however, believe the geographical location of the Angkor complex and the arrangement of its temples was based on a planet-spanning sacred geography from archaic times.
While the date of this astronomical alignment is far earlier than any known construction at Angkor, it appears that its purpose was to architecturally mirror the heavens in order to assist in the harmonization of the earth and the stars.
It is interesting to note that the Corona Borealis would not have been visible from these temples during the 10th and 11th centuries when they were constructed.
