I find a much more poignant and persuasive hint that it's *not* the first time round: When the mummies confront Dios, the present-king's father asks him: "How old are you?" "I think... seven thousand years. But sometimes it seems much longer." But then, as far as Dios is concerned, surely we're both missing the point - it is, in fact, every time around. Possibly he suffers from the same sort of confused memory as Granny Weatherwax in L&L. -- Miq afpiance to the delicious MEG
