hmm, reading J. Baines on bnbn regarding the stone fetish at Heliopolis..." bn/bnbn (*blbl), and is the supposed origin of the word bnbnt 'pyramidion'. Kees (In Bonnet, Rallexikon 100b.[also H. Kees, "Ein alter Gottterhymnus als Begleittext zum Opferrritual" ZAS 57 1922 115]) maintains a connection with wbn, to 'rise' or 'shine', said of the sun ("die Wortbilfung bnbn ... iene Reduplikation des Stammes wbn") Gardiner apparently follows him, referring to "bnbn, etymologically perhaps 'the radiant one'... This opinion based is based on PT 1652 a-b"

so, if we believe that (as Lehner states) the mr is a solar icon and the bnbnt is its capstone we should see the relation via wbn ...shouldn't we?

Best,
