Hi Dennis,

In astronomical texts, *pros ton helion* is translated "*relatively*
to the sun".

I use an expression which occurs in _To Thessalonians_ : "to
God-ward" (1T 1:8).

By " a link", I think Dennis means something else in the text which
refers back reflexively (or reflectively) to the phrase in question.

(On this list, a wag might translate *pros ton theon* as *rapidly
approaching cancellation* :-)

Regards, Will
