But thou, O Daniel,
Heelstone Lion (cat), Stonehenge
Panthera is a genus of the family Felidae (cats), which contains 4 well-known living species: the tiger, the lion, the jaguar, and the leopard. The genus comprises about half of the Pantherinae subfamily, the big cats. The word panther, while technically referring to all members of the genus, is commonly used to specifically designate the black panther. Only the 4 Panthera cat species have the anatomical structure that enables them to roar.
Heelstone Bear (dog), Stonehenge
Amphicyonids, often referred to as Bear-dogs, crossed from Europe to North America during the Miocene epoch and are considered an Old World taxon. Bears are mammals classified as caniforms, or dog-like carnivorans, quite larger than dogs. Gray wolves are all Canis lupus subspecies except 2, the domestic dog and dingo. Hounds (pointers) assist hunters by identifying the location of prey, but it is the Retriever who recovers the quarry.
Heelstone Leopard (cat), Stonehenge
Pantheon, literally "a temple of all gods", or "common to all gods", is a set of all the gods of a particular polytheistic religion or mythology. Pantheon can also refer to a temple or sacred building explicitly dedicated to "all deities", avoiding the difficulty of giving an exhaustive list. The most famous such structure is the Pantheon of Rome, built in the year 27 B.C. That building was dedicated to "all gods" as a gesture to embrace syncretism.
Heelstone Gofer (ark), Stonehenge
Coming on 23rd September '11 at 9:05 a.m. (UTC) is the autumnal equinox, best time for a warm Turcaud-Conrad universal magnetic reversal (TCUMR) cosmically, and for sparing any more '10+1=11 / 11-3=8' artifacts damage. Gofer wood, or Worm wood? Decisions, decisions. (relics West to East order: altar / ark / seat / ephod-girdle / breastplate / altar / candlestick / table). Best nights for Harvest Moon viewing are on September 11, 12, 13.

"And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt."

"And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament;
and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever."
