I came across a similar symbol when I was reading a ancient origins post on Facebook. It was an article on the inscriptions found on a tablet unearthed from a mound in Tennessee called the “Bat Creek Inscriptions” See link below: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bat_Creek_inscription
What was interesting is that one of the symbols is almost identical to the zodiac symbol but in reverse. There was also various dots in the inscription very similar to the dots around the zodiac symbol. As soon as I saw it I said that looks almost identical to the zodiac symbol. May just be coincidence or maybe an inspiration for the zodiac symbol?
Fascinating find , Brad , and gratitude to you for registering a reference of its observation , at this site .
It may be of interest to you , that a recently exposed double correspondence from May 27th 2009 and June 2nd 2009 ( 06/02/09 = 629 = FBI ) from the Rev.William ( Billy ) Graham FBI Files , have become new candidates for possible last written contact from the Zodiac . These two letters were posted to the IRS Tax Office in Knoxville , Tennessee .
Based on recent surveys of opinion , a majority of those surveyed believe that the Zodiac was a resident of Vallejo , during his reign of terror . But this may have not been his primary home . A favoured candidate for a primary home would , more than likely , be in the Greater Los Angeles vicinity . Personally , I believe that his primary home , up until August 1969 , was Memphis , Tennessee .
Thank you again , for your interesting observation , with a Tennessee link .
Thanks Rubislaw, I didn’t realise there was a Tennessee link but if the inscription was the inspiration, then that would make sense as in the 60s the inscription would probably only be known to locals or intellectuals in the archeological profession.
Yes, I see now that Loudon County is just 20 miles south-west of Knoxville .
The Zodiac may have earmarked the IRS Offices in Knoxville , in 2009 , on account of knowledge of them before . What is almost certain is , that the Zodiac rarely if ever remained static for very long . Always on the move , with a possible Tennessee residency just prior to the bulk of the confirmed correspondences , in the latter part of 1969 , and into 1970 . Refer : William ( Billy ) Graham FBI File 2 , Pages 244 - 247 .
Rubislaw32: There you go FBI - another example of the FBI (Comey) leaving a mess behind, through having the arrogance of believing that you are a law unto yourselves. Is it any wonder Riverside PD never wanted you in their back yard ? Mucky pups, crooks & thugs.

Rubislaw32: Recriminations were brutal in the wake of James Comey's ''visitations''. 4 senior police officers at the C.C.U. were singled out and shamed, losing their jobs under varying description. Also to go were two Chief Constables and Head of the Police Authority.

Rubislaw32: Why did Congress not get to hear about any of this ? Because Robert Mueller's unredacted report into Comey's dismissal was offered to them, on the basis that they not divulge those parts to the the public. Congress refused, as a matter of moral principle.

Rubislaw32: e-mails were being intercepted by senior police behaving like puerile schoolboys at Police Scotland's Counter Corruption Unit - bearing in mind that Comey was also tasked with investigating Mrs Clinton's e-mails on the basis of possible security breaches.

Rubislaw32: Now out of track on credulity, the FBI are seen as the Zodiac-lepers, with the CA DOJ delivering their damnation on May 14th 2022. A new meaning for their once proud name ''The Untouchables'' - the FBI making their case skeletons even more conspicuous.

Rubislaw32: For the FBI since May 9th 2017, it has been about selling the false perception they hold a key role in the Zodiac case - then using this to peddle their dishonest proclamations. The reality ? DOJ's don't want nor need what the FBI are touting as info..

Rubislaw32: Indeed FBI - ''You don't know what you got until you lose it''. First call after Trump booted Comey's a*s ? Get cosy with Hearst because you're going to need a media mogul perpetuating the myth that you are still at the heart of Zodiac investigations.

Rubislaw32: they weren't required. Just too dramatic, and for theatrical effect. He was caught red-handed (IOCCO) on March 4th 2015 when he was busy trying to convince The Crown Office that he was in charge of the Zodiac case. Dishonest, but comical.

Rubislaw32: CA DOJ are unable to avail us of such luxuries, there's always focusing on the fraud-peddlers of the case - the FBI. For 45 years this agency did their best impersonation of Rip Van Winkle, then suddenly woke up to the fact that they were no longer needed.
