English: Path of the point of vernal equinox along the ecliptic over a 6000 year period. The tradition of take the point of vernal equinox as defining the "sign of Aries" dates to Babylonian astrology, ca. 600 BC. It is apparent in this image that the main star of Aries, Hamal, was closest to the point of vernal equinox in ca. the 7th century BC.
Polski: Ścieżka przemieszczania się punktu równonocy wiosennej, wzdłuż ekliptyki w ciągu 6000 lat. Tradycja przyjęła punkt równonocy wiosennej, definijąc go jako określenie "punkt Barana" i pochodzi z babilońskiej astrologii, z okresu 600 lat przed naszą erą. Jak widać na tym zdjęciu, główna gwiazda punktu Barana, Hamal, była najbliżej punktu równonocy wiosennej w 7 wieku pn.

Nel 3000 a.C. era vicino ad Aldebaran del Toro: l'"era del toro" è durata dal 4480 al 2320 a.C.
