The Days and Hours of Jupiter – Marceau Chapter 10 (Historical Fiction Novel)

The Days and Hours of Jupiter are proper for obtaining honours, acquiring riches; contracting friendships, preserving health; and arriving at all that thou canst desire,” said Max.

The above statement as spoken by Maximilien (Max for short) unbeknownst son of Maurice Marceau and Marguerite is taken from a manuscript (yes, copyright free — its over 2000 years old and the translation I am using  is at least 200 years old). Chapter Ten is where Maurice gets to know Max a bit better and asks him to translate certain parts of this manuscript that his team of archeologists found in old dried up lake in what was known as Babylon (now Iraq). Maurice was quite impressed upon hearing Max translate each word immediately upon reading them in Aramaic (ancient Hebrew).  This manuscript (according to this novel — remember it is fiction) was originally found in parchment with an accompanying artifact in the form of a vessel with text in Aramaic and inscribed seals. This very artifact is mythological and has a legend tied to it. It is this legend that Max unleashes and becomes real. Unfortunately, this very legend does have its side effects as Max is known to discover later in the story.
