The following are quotes:
- “I am the one who met you [Apollo], and you gave me a gift of the greatest value; the name of you is knowledge (gnosis), the number 9999.”
- “In the same: Apollos, and who is the sun, as Horus is called: from the time when the day and the night in which it is made up of twenty-four ‘hours’ in the name of, and have received them, the world is filled with hours in a year, and four times in which they are called.”
- “The name of Horae, Hours, came from an Horus Apollo, an Egyptian sage, who first divided the day into those portions we call ‘hours’, as Macrobius (Saturnalia I.1.21) informs us.”
- — Thomas Powell (1661), Human Industry: a History of the Manual Arts 
- “Apollo was surnamed Egyptian (Pausanias II.27.5). Macrobius (Saturnalia 1.21) writes, ‘among the Egyptians, Apollo [and he is the sun] is called Horus — whence the name ‘hours’ (horae) has been derived.”
- — William Shelley (1998), The Origin of the Europeans (pg. 185) 
- “The word ‘Horus" in Irenaeus's discourse on the Marcosians, in which he relates that they ‘say that this is an image of Horus, encircling their thirty-named mother’, is often translated as ‘limit’, after the Greek word Horos or Ορος. The term for the god Horus used by Plutarch (38, 366A) and other Greek writers was in fact Ωρος — Horos. While pronounced the same, the two words are spelled differently in Greek, the term for ‘limit’ or ‘boundary’ starting with the Greek letter omicron (‘Ο’), while the Egyptian god's name begins with an omega (‘Ω’). Nevertheless, the word for ‘hour’ or ‘limited time’ is ωρα — hora — beginning with an omega, which would indicate that all three terms are cognates, especially since Horus himself has been identified with time, having been said to be the originator of 12 hours or ωρες / hares in the Greek, a word claimed by Horapollo to come from Horus’ name. Plutarch (38, 366A) also noted the correspondence between Hora and Horus, remarking: ‘The all-conserving and fostering Hora, that is the seasonable tempering of the surrounding air, is Horus.’ Plutarch's word ‘Hora’ is the same as that above, referring to a time period as well as a season or climate. Furthermore, the past tense of the ancient Greek verb ‘to limit’ — οριζω — is ωρισα, with an omega, the same as in the name Horus.”
- “In Pythagorean musical proportion, the perfect 5th is expressed as the ratio of 6:9. From this he deduced by simple math, the number 0.666 (6 divided by 9). The number 666 we will discuss later. Pythagorean musical proportion also produces the ratio of 9:8, which expresses a whole tone. By a similar simple calculation, we can deduce the mystical number of 888. This number had great significance for the ancient Greeks for it was the gematria of the sacred first priest of Apollo, called Olen (Ὠλήν) [NE:888]. It's worth mentioning here that the founders of early Christianity were well versed in the science and they knew the significance of this number 888, when they created their godman, their first sacred high priest, Jesus. The name Jesus is a transliteration from the original Aramaic and when it was introduced into the Greek texts, the spelling was adjusted so that the gematria of the name would be 888. Jesus is the 888 of the Gospels. He was created along with his name to be the Ogdoad of eights, the powerful triplicity of 8, the number of regeneration and indeed, the number of resurrection.”

- “These elements include a combination of hanging and crucifixion, death and resurrection, and important celestial, solar, and numerical elements, such as the inclusion of twelve disciples, thus highlighting the number 12 and 13: twelve spheres around a central sphere. ‘The ancients discovered that if a sphere is surrounded by others of exactly the same dimension so that all of the spheres are in contact with each other, the central sphere will be surrounded by exactly 12 others' (Freke & Gandy, 1999, p. 42). Most savior-gods around whom religions formed had twelve disciples (Mangasarian, 2004). Other sacred numbers also appear in many traditions, including die numbers 7, 3, 40, 666, and 888; the last two are sacred numbers in the Pythagorean faith (which relate to the Chinese concepts of yin and yang, the Japanese concepts of in and yo, and the Hindu ideas of Shiva and Pavarti, who are represented iconographical as the same being). Pythagoras, son of the god Apollo, was supposedly born of a virgin. His birth was miraculous. He studied religion from the Egyptian priests and later became a prophet in Greece and Italy, which provides further circumstantial evidence of the profound influence the Egyptian religion has had on Western faiths.”
