The Accounting of Hours is a scripture featured in the flavor text of the 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 sat entirely between the horns on the horizon, revealing the promise of the God-Pharaoh.[1]

Notably absent in the texts is the Hour of Devastation.

When the Hours began, the events came to pass as foretold, but steeped heavily in irony, rather than what was expected by the citizens of Amonkhet.[2]
