... 65, Tamara Futterman argues for Avaris in the Minya area on the west bank of the Nile on the evidence from the Carnarvon tablets that Khamose could not possibly be shown to have travelled all the way to the Delta when he conquered this Hyksos headquarters. However, using Futterman's arguments it would be possible and appropriate to identify Akhetaten with Avaris.) 7) Like Akhenaten Osarseph/Moses is remembered for banning the worship of the Theban gods and worshipping in 'used open-air temples oriented [sic east, exactly like the Aten temples of Amarna.' Osman demonstrates that most of the difficulties in discovering the true state of affairs derives from the reluctance of both Egyptian and Jewish writers- especially the latter- to admit that their respective heroes (for the Egyptians at least in the sense that Akhenaten was rightfully a pharaoh even if he became the fallen one of Amarna) were of mixed blood. An example of this would be the curious story of Moses confronting the 'magicians' of Egypt when his 'rod' turned into a 'serpent' which swallowed up the 'serpents' ...

62. The Mysterious Smenkhkare [SIS Internet Digest $]
... imagery is very violent, and there are some suggestions of a link to Tiye's representation as the goddess Tefnut. However, several of these points have counter-arguments. It could be said that the portrayal of Nefertiti as on a level with Akhenaten simply shows the theological viewpoint of the late 18th dynasty. Regarding the pronomen, why discard the well-known identifying portion Nefertiti? Also there are some orthographic differences in the way the signs are drawn. There are several problematic items for this interpretation, however. A stele in Berlin shows (in Amarna style) a junior king pouring a drink for another king. This has been variously interpreted as the junior pouring for Akhenaten (supporting this speaker's position) or Akhenaten pouring for Amenhotep 3 (so supporting the coregency thesis). Additionally, though the senior is clearly male, the other is less definite. Another, unfinished relief shows what appear to be two naked kings, one caressing the other. However, the visual layout of the scene and especially the cartouches (3 rather than 4) would suggest one of the ...

... satisfying. If, as I have suggested, the MBA city was the Jericho which Joshua destroyed, then the Late Bronze remains must date from somewhere between the Conquest and the occupation of the seventh century BC. When we apply the revised chronology, we find that these Late Bronze remains, which Kenyon thinks mark the Canaanite city, are in fact the missing traces of Hiel's Jericho. The pottery which marks Jericho's LBA occupation depends for its dates on the chronology of Egypt's XVIIIth Dynasty. Much of it is pottery characteristic of the Amarna Period, which is conventionally dated c. 1370-1350 BC. Thus Kenyon assigned dates of c. 1400-1325 BC to the Late Bronze occupation (5). In Velikovsky's chronology, however, the Amarna period belongs in the ninth century BC, to the time of Elijah and Elisha (6). This is precisely the time, according to the Old Testament, when Jericho was rebuilt by Hiel. Kenyon assumed that between the Late Bronze occupation and that of the Iron Age there had been a gap of four-and-a-half centuries, during ...

... been married out to a foreign king. But this is not necessarily the case at all. The phrase translated "From of old," is ultam pana, literally, "from before." While "From of old" is a good idiomatic translation, it has more the connotation of "never before" than does the original. What Amenhotep III may have been saying was "We haven't done that for a long time, and we're not going to start again with you." On a Velikovsky-type placement of the Amarna period, this exchange would have taken place some 120 years after Solomon married Pharaoh's daughter. Or he might have been saying, "Long-standing Egyptian policy requires that I turn down your request." And if we are talking about a time after that of Solomon, such a policy would make much sense. Bear in mind that it is possible that Pharaoh's daughter might have been alive at the time of Shishak's invasion of Judah. Shishak (on this model Thutmose III) may have been confronted with the possibility of his kinswoman ...

66. Further Notes on Abi Milki and Pygmalion [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History IV:1 (Jan 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Further Notes on Abi Milki and Pygmalion Phillip Clapham In EA (El Amarna Letter) 149 Abi Milki writes, "the king my lord has appointed me to protect Tyre, the handmaid of the king...." EA 155 reads, "the king is Sun forever. The king has demanded that there be given to his servant and to the servant of Shalmaiati breath, and that there be given water for him to drink...." Abi Milki claims firstly that he was appointed by the king, Akhnaton, and secondly, he repeatedly stresses in his various letters that he is the loyal servant of the king and of Shalmaiati. Velikovsky interpreted this as a reference to the Assyrian conqueror, Shalmaneser III,(1) an aspect revived by Mitcham.(2) Peter James(3) claims Shalmaneser collected tribute from afar, which Sabatino Moscati(4) likens to gifts for the purpose of placating the aggressive Assyrian. ...

... eminent French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer, correlating the chronology and stratigraphy of Bronze Age sites in the Near East, led him to conclude that many of the phases of Bronze Age civilisation were ended by catastrophes "not caused by the action of man". This paper summarises Schaeffer's conclusions and their implications for both Worlds in Collision and the revised chronology. The distinguished French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer is best known as the excavator of the Bronze Age site of Ras Shamra, which he correctly identified as the ancient city of Ugarit referred to in the Amarna letters. A detailed record of Schaeffer's discoveries at Ras Shamra during his excavations there between 1929 and the outbreak of World War II is contained in a series of publications known as Ugaritica [1. However, during the enforced break in field work in the Near East caused by the war, Schaeffer wrote a major, albeit sadly neglected, work entitled Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l'Asie occidentale {III e et II e millenaires) [2. This compared the stratigraphy of numerous Bronze Age sites in the Near East and sought ...

68. A Question of Logic [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... working within a fairly limited time span, Velikovsky's dates-- when preceded by "about"-- may be up to a dozen years out, rather than (as one would like to presume) within two or three years of their true mark. It is time that Velikovsky (or his staff) supplied a detailed chronology for the pharaohs of the Eighteenth Dynasty, reign by reign, so as to clarify these apparent anomalies. Two Hundred Year Old Kings As a continuation of these dating problems, I looked at the Amarna Age outside Egypt. Velikovsky notes that Tushratta wrote to Akhnaton on the latter's accession, 4 which places the beginning of the Mitanni Civil War prior to -855 (using the above dates) but sets the end of the Kingdom after this year. Professor Hewsen in an article on Eastern Anatolia 5 proposes a date of about -865. The Holbrook time chart in Pensee, "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered, IV" tends to confirm Velikovsky's acceptance of a date during the Amarna Age. Dr. Velikovsky's assistant, however, advises: 6 ...

... LB IA, making both last from about 1560 to 1450 BC. He sees the end of MB culture in Palestine occuring, not at 1550 with the expulsion of the Hyksos which had little effect on most of Palestine anyway, but with the conquests of Thutmose III who was the first Pharaoh of the New Kingdom to come to stay, to set up an empire with an Egyptian administration. But on reflection why should even this event cause the locals to change their pottery? I believe that MB styles continued at least until the Amarna Period in LB IIA. This explains why there are hardly any LB fortified cities in Palestine to correspond to the Amarna Letters situation when there was widespread strife. The Amarna Period is to be found amongst mainly MB remains, with MB fortified cities and mixed MB/LB pottery. The picture really looks something like fig. 3C in Review. I do not claim that I have got this all correct but only that I am on the right track. I may have gone too far with some of these overlaps. Next ...

70. The End of Mitanni and Some Related Problems [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... northern Syria and Iraq. Hittite troops moving against Mitanni-- see "Mitanni and Her Neighbors," below-- would have been forced to march across Assyria at the height of the reign of Shalmaneser III, 5 while, in return, the King of Mitanni and his army (reported to be in Syria about the year 846 6) would, in turn, have been forced to march across Assyria. Further evidence for a common frontier between Egypt and Mitanni comes from the correspondence of Tushratta to Amunhotep III: in Amarna letter 24 7 Tushratta refers to two cities, one of which was to be assigned to Egypt, the other to Mitanni. How, when the centuries are placed in their proper position, we are to dissolve the Mitannian kingdom 8 is not clear, as Velikovsky clearly accepted its existence during part of the Amarna age and the preceding decades. 9 His arguments are not helped by an attempted defense that relies on inexact data. 10 Briefly, we are told Tushratta wrote to Amunhotep III that he must make war on Artatama ...
