The Accounting of Hours is a scripture featured in the flavor text of Amonkhet block.

The text prophecies the coming of the God-Pharaoh. According to the first prophecy, the Gate to the Afterlife would open when the second sun entirely sat between the horns, revealing the promise of the God-Pharaoh.[1]
