61. The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Proceedings of The Third Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1986) Home¦ Issue Contents The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition Herbert A. Storck The Assyrian Kinglist (AKL) [1 is one of the most important chronographic texts ever uncovered. Initially it was thought to represent a long unbroken tradition of rulership over Assyria. A closer look at the AKL by Landsberger,[2 however, dispelled this somewhat facile approach to AKL tradition. Subsequent studies by Kraus[3 and Finkelstein [4 on the earliest portion of the AKL have demonstrated a common underlying Amorite tradition between parts of the AKL and the Genealogy of Hammurapi (GHD). Portions of this section of the AKL containing 17 tent-dwelling kings have also been compared to biblical[5 and Ugaritic[6 Amorite traditions. All in all the association between the AKL and GHD is most interesting, especially in view of the later extended animosity between these two lands-- Assyria and Babylonia. The purpose of this ...
62. The Hyksos Were Not Assyrians [Aeon Journal $]
... bedrock left no in situ strata, Middle Bronze material has been widely found. Within the revisionist debate, Heinsohn's assertion is equally astonishing. Tom Chetwynd, Stan Vaninger, Donovan Courville, Yehoshua Etzion and myself have all drawn attention to the richness of the Middle Bronze material. And this is just strata! It does not include the great glacis wall fortresses spanning the area from Tel el-Yahudia in the Delta to Carchemish on the Euphrates. 2) Heinsohn's claim that the Hyksos material in Egypt must be invoked to find evidence of the Assyrian occupation is equally bizarre. The Hyksos 15th dynasty period lasted 100 years in the Delta. The Hyksos were there to stay. We may also note that the 18th and 19th dynasty rulers regarded the Hyksos as their predecessors. By contrast, the Assyrian invasions of Egypt, including upper Egypt, came to a climax under Esar-haddon in 667 BCE and Ashur-Bani-Pal in 663 BCE. Within a decade, the 26th dynasty had been established, and by 650 BCE, Psametichos had started his long and prosperous reign. Even in the 710-670 ...
63. Tiglath-pileser versus Pul: Who is Pulling Whose Leg? [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... to show the inadequacy of his arguments but not his total faith in the received Word. One can appreciate and perhaps even agree with his complaint that the Biblical account of its own history has not received the kind of honest treatment that its counterparts in Assyria and even Egypt have received over the years. However, that does not justify his approach to the Bible, his anti- establishment bias and his cavalier (mis)treatment of all that has gone before. His book deals with the chronology of the Hebrew kings, the Assyrian king Tiglathpileser, Belshazzar and Darius the Mede, Ahasuerus and Xerxes and the Egyptians and Ethiopians. My comments will be primarily limited to his use and abuse of the Assyrian evidence and its application to the chronology of the kings of Israel and Judah. I shall leave his treatment of the actual chronology of the kings of Israel and Judah to my friend Karola Kautz who shares his view that the Bible is inerrant. This will be a better test of the value or lack thereof of his proposals as they both embrace the perspective ...
64. Revisions and Assyrians [SIS C&C Review $]
... :2 (Jan 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Revisions and Assyrians Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos gave life and energy to an assortment of hopeful revisions of history- no mean achievement. Some of the arguments revisionists have used are complex, others are shallow. It seems to me, trying to be as objective as possible, that a revision of the Lower Bronze Age and Iron Age periods has to encompass certain facts that are difficult to overcome, or, indeed, to actually swallow. One of these facts of chronology is the Assyrian King List. Several ideas concerning its possible rearrangement have been suggested, involving overlaps of varying lengths, or the idea of non-canonicals. These ideas can neither be proved nor disproved. That leaves us in limbo and seeking some other way to navigate around what has become a blockage (mentally, as well as chronologically). However, there is something else about the Assyrians that also seems to debar the kind of revision favoured by most SIS members. That is the fact that Assyrian kings of the post-Amarna period saw themselves as ...
65. Some Notes on the Revised Chronology (part one) [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... fact, the parallel chapter in II Chronicles, chapter 35:20 states:- "Necho, king of Egypt, came up to fight against Carchemish by Euphrates." His claim that Nebuchadrezzar was ever king of Assyria or the 'Upper Land', is based on a highly dubious interpretation of the evidence together with the unacceptable rendition of 'Carchemish by Euphrates' as 'king of Babylon'. 4) In The Exodus Problem and its Ramifications, Dr. Courville attempts to make a case for the XXII Dynasty to be recognised as Assyrian rather than Libyan in origin. I believe he has failed for three main reasons: a) If the Dynasty was Assyrian in origin and linked by marriage to the Ramessides, then the Assyrians would surely have strengthened the authority of this Dynasty, rather than as they did- appoint a series of vice-kings. Can the Assyrians themselves have been unaware that they had a dynastic claim to the throne of Egypt? b) It would have been most unlikely that Psammetich, when he expelled the Assyrians in about -655, would have ...
66. Menelaos in Egypt [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... 1992 No 1 (Aug 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents Menelaos in Egypt (Links Between Mycenaean Greece and Egypt) by Emmet J. Sweeney According to Herodotus, the first Greeks to reach Egypt came in the time of Psammetichus. The 'Father of History' tells us how a band of bronze-clad Ionians and Carians arrived in the Delta, began plundering the countryside, and were then recruited by Psammetichus as mercenaries [1. With the help of these troops, Psammetichus was able to overcome his rival Dodecarchs, wrest Egypt from the Assyrian empire, and launch a great imperial epoch of Egyptian history. These events are generally dated to the second quarter of the 7th century. In conformity with this dating, Greek pottery and artifacts of the early 7th century are discovered with great frequency in the Delta, especially at those sites specifically linked to the Greeks. However, in apparent contradiction of these facts, both archaeology and tradition record contact between Hellenes and Egyptians in an earlier epoch. In his history of Egypt Herodotus informs us that the Egyptians of his time were ...
67. Assyrian and Babylonian Chronology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1993 No 2 (Jan 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents Assyrian and Babylonian Chronology by A Chavasse In 1867 [1 George Smith identified an event of the 10th year of Ashur-dan III as an eclipse retro-calculated to have taken place on the 15th of June 763 BC. This has become the basis for the chronology of Eduard Meyer (1887-1904), the model which mostly prevails today. However, Velikovsky pointed at various times that retro-calculations of dates before about 700 BC or somewhat later do not coincide with observations made by ancient astronomers and so this retro-calculation is not likely to be correct. Moreover, why should the ancient Assyrians give such importance to a partial eclipse taking place early in the morning when they did not record in their Limmu List any full eclipse that took place in the middle part of the day? An eclipse did take place in the 10th year of Ashur-dan III but I believe that this was no ordinary eclipse of the sun by the moon, but was an eclipse of the sun by an astronomical body ...
68. Some Ideas for Further Investigation [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... was enthroned after six years of coregency with his father Shabataqa.[11 The first year of the coregency was 713, the fourteenth year of Hezekiah, according to my friend. If Sieff should be right, Taharqa was already king in 710. We may conclude that we can, in that case, tolerate a difference of only 3 years for the reigns of the kings from Taharqa to Necho II. It seems that the appointment of Taharqa by his father had a connection with his Palestinian policy-- or should I write Assyrian policy? (3) Piankhy mentions a King Iuput in Thentremu and Taan and Osorkon in Bubastis.[12 Can't they be identified with Osorkon I, who probably ruled in Tanis and Bubastis?[13 His brother, the priest Iuput, who under Osorkon's father already seems to have played a political role,[14 can have been vassal king in Tanis. We know that Iuput the priest brought a number of mummies of kings to a safer hiding place. As that of Ramses II belonged among that number, Iuput ...
69. Early History of the Israelite People: Biblical Fundamentalism in History (II) [The Velikovskian $]
... king of the House of David may be identified with Asa, a descendant of the House of David. Asa has a fundamentalist date of -908 to -868. It is this fundamentalist date, and nothing else, which dates the Aramaic text on Tel Dan's stele. There is --as many believe --no independent chronology from Assyria to back the date of Tel Dan's stele. Why is this so? Because Assyria's King Shalmaneser III mentions Ahab the Israelite. Ahab has a fundamentalist date of from -871 to -852. Through this fundamentalist date, Assyrian eponyms were dated, bringing Shalmaneser III to between -859 and -824. Thus, the stele which supposedly provides independent confirmation for -9th century biblical history got its date from that very biblical history. Circularity! Thompson is in no position to challenge Biran on 850 BC because Thompson adheres to Biran's fundamentalist date. As it happens --I know it sounds awkward --so does everyone else but me. It is clear that I do not defend Avraham Biran's chronology. His dating is as unbiased in hard evidence as everybody else's. It does no ...
70. An Answer to Hickman [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... , from the same reference is directed to Judah alone, according to Ezekiel. In other words, Hickman has set the time limit of 390 years for the Divided Kingdom and proceeded to fit in a chronology without first establishing whether this was a valid time span. Ezekiel, from age 25, was a prisoner in Babylon, cut off from the Temple records in Jerusalem. He relied on information from others, as can be seen from his account. In order to support this expanded chronology Hickman proposes an additional king in the Assyrian list to fill in the Assyrian/Hebrew chronological gap. His understanding and chronology are in trouble-- with or without the "missing" Assyrian king. "The First Step" Hickman says "The first step is to establish a starting date for our chronology." This would be fine if it is an actual date and not just some year that has been generally accepted as true. All dates are really "assigned." We believe them to be correct-- and they may be-- but we ...
