*séhaul (PIE) - Sun:-

The word for the Sun is old: Latin sōl sun; English sun; Lithuanian sáulė sun; Greek hēélios; Avestan hvar sun; Sanskrit svàr~ sūr(y)a; the Old Irish cognate sūil means eye, a concept also reprised in both Greek and Indic mythology.
In Eygpt the sun is represented as, N5 , and can also be represented as The Eye of Ra . This is frequently represented in hieroglyphs as the mirror opposite of the more common, Wadjet Eye, D10 , which has lunar associations. Originally the sun and moon were the right and left eyes respectively of Horus as a celestial falcon.
For reference, in China and Japan the basic symbol for the sun is, , and that for the eye,.
