Narmer  ruled Egypt in the Pre Dynastic period, 5000 years before our time. His palette shows four people carrying standards. The first two carry long poles with bird figures on the top. Next person carried a pole with the wolf God and the last one carried a bundle or a cloth. The king is walking behind the sandal bearers.

Indus valley seal of a procession is not complete. We could see only three people carrying three different things. The first one carried a cloth or a festoon like thing hanging from the top of the pole. This is similar to the first two poles of Egypt. The middle one carried a calf (Heifer). The last person in the Indus procession carried a cult object. Many scholars have identified it with the vessels for extracting Soma Juice. Rig Veda has hundreds of hymns in praise of Soma. So it may be something to do with the Somarasa. There is amazing similarity between Indus Valley and Egyptian standards.



If the cult object is Soma filter or extractor then it must be a Vedic civilization. But nothing is proved beyond doubt. It have made it amply clear in  earlier posts that the Indus civilization was influenced by Middle East and other neighbouring civilizations if we accept the current chronology. A god surrounded by many animals, one hero fighting two animals, the circular stone structures, the snake queen and many others have similarities with older cultures including Minoan civilization.
