For those interested, an article is available identifying the Egyptian
Origins of the Golden Calf in the Sinai narratives. It is argued that the
Calf is drawing from motifs found in the "Cult of Hathor," who had a temple
in the Southern Sinai and Arabah during the Late Bronze/Early Iron Ages,
these Ages being identified with the Exodus by anumber of Scholars (Albright
and Bietak).
