Numerous hypocephali are still inedited. This paper offers the publication of the hypocephalus of Takerheb in Firenze, with analysis and discussion. A scheme of the solar cycle is highlighted in the typical layout of hypocephali and, in the example of Takerheb, the expressions Htp=f m anx gs and bA imntt, and the peculiar reversion of the field with the four-headed god, are related to the geographic cosmic significance of the various sectors of the amulet.
