The rising constellation or decan was probably used before the rising degree by some Babylonian (like Berossus) after God's Messiah Cyrus made their empire desolate forever, or by some Egyptian after the time of Necho (who killed Josiah in 480 BC) or during the Ptolemaic Kingdom. Hypsicles wrote a treatise ''Ascension'' which made it easy to calculate the ascendant with rising times, but the Babylonians could do that centuries before him. The astrologers ascribed such a table of rising times to Nechepso, that is Necho. By the time of Cicero, it was widespread in the Roman Empire. Of course morning risings and astrological phenomena pertaining to the east were noted for a millenium before.
