1. Arsu the Syrian [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VIII:1 (Jan 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents Arsu the Syrian Michael S. Sanders From the time of Merneptah's death until the accession of Sethnakhte, the father of Ramesses III, there is uncertainty in the chronology and order of Egypt'srulers(Cambridge Ancient History, Vol. II, 238). The famous Harris Papyrus, now in the British Museum, contains a section at the end giving the situation in Egypt prior to the reign of Ramesses III (Breasted, Records, Vol. IV, No. 398). The text states: The land of Egypt was overthrown from without and every man was [thrown out of his right; they had no chief mouth for many years formerly until other times. The land of Egypt was in the hands of chiefs and of rulers of towns; one slew his neighbor great and small. Other times having come after it with empty years, Yarsu, a certain Syrian, was with them as chief. He set the whole land tributary before him together; ...
2. Ivory Carvings [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... gems found throughout the Aegean, and the East Mediterranean. (1) Ivory, probably from Syria, first appeared in Greece as tiny ornaments applied to other objects in the Shaft Graves at the beginning of the Late Helladic Period. By the late Eighteenth Dynasty, the Mycenaean craftsmen were fashioning ivory sculptures and inlay plaques with intricate patterns and subjects, such as hunting scenes, combats with real and mythical beasts, warriors, heraldic and religious motifs, etc., which spread across the Aegean and Near East. They and their Syrian counterparts freely exchanged their creations, in the process mingling Eastern and Western decorative elements to form an international style. (2) By the end of the Mycenaean Age, the importation of raw and finished ivory from the East, and its carving in the Aegean, apparently ceased, ? making its first re-appearance ? in Greece some 600 years after the Shaft Grave Period. (3) Greek artisans resumed the fashioning of intricate carved ivories in the eighth century, (4) with the motifs very reminiscent of Mycenaean work some ...
3. Home of the Brave [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Citizen Abroad Since Nov. By OBSERVER On Nov. 30, the day after the United Nations Assembly voted the partition of Palestine, the United Press correspondent wired from Damascus, Syria, that the Arabs there had stoned the building of the American Legation and hauled down the flag flying in front of the United Stated building. It was said later in the bazaars of Damascus that strips of the flag were used to wipe out the filthy public latrines of the city, and hoodlums dishonored the Stars and Stripes in an indescribable manner. Syrian government officials did not come to the Legation to present their apologies; instead they waited until the United States Chargé d ? Affaires visited the Syrian President and Premier ? to discuss the attack on the Legation and the affront to its flag.? Both official expressed regret in behalf of their Government. Lowell C. Pinkerton, American Minister to neighboring Lebanon, cabled a report to Washington on the attack and said ? he would await a reply before filing any formal protest with the Syrian Government,? runs a dispatch in the ...
4. Hittites and Phrygians [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Urartu have failed history, for they do not divulge in their annalistic inscriptions the identity of the Urartians. Urartu is derived from the root "Ararat,"- the mountain massif associated with the Transcaucasus; it is therefore a geographical term describing a political unit inhibiting Assyrian expansion to the north and northwest. The Bible and Velikovsky In biblical genealogy the ChaIdeans are Semitic relatives of the Hebrews. In Babylonian sources they are portrayed as semi-sedentary tribes occupying the Sealands with bedouin roots in common with the Aramaean tribes of northern Babylonia and the Syrian steppe. Velikovsky 7 attempts to identify the Chaldeans with the people of Khaldis, the Chaldeans placed by Xenophon in Armenia, and therefore by inference with Urartu. This point has previously been criticized by Peter James 8 and Lester Mitcham. 9 Whereas it is not impossible that natural disaster or conquest caused a division of the Chaldean tribes some time in the remote past-- for Abrahamic connections with both Chaldeans, Aramaeans, and the Harran region seem to indicate a Chaldean homeland in that area, 10 the Semitic language and genealogy ...
5. Chronological Problems in the Archaeology of the Hittites [SIS C&C Review $]
... showing the visit of the Hittite Emperor Hattusilis and his daughter to Ramesses II (seated between two gods) Most of the monuments to be studied lay in south-eastern Anatolia and northern Syria, at sites such as Hamath, Carchemish, Sakçagözü and Zinjirli. The Hittite stone reliefs and other sculpture of this area clearly showed the influence of nearby Mesopotamia, and the relationship of Hittite art to that of the Babylonians and Assyrians was evaluated. A major concern, of course, was the dating of these monuments. While much of the north Syrian art showed unmistakable Neo-Assyrian influence, placing it firmly in the 1st millennium BC, the dating of the monuments at sites on the central Anatolian plateau (such as Alaça Hüyük, Bogazköy and Yazilikaya) was open to debate. They showed less definite Mesopotamian elements, and some thought they showed signs of having been influenced by Egyptian art of the XIXth Dynasty (conventionally the 14th and 13th centuries BC). However, the consensus was that the majority of the central Anatolian monuments, like the Syrian, dated to the middle of ...
6. Partition: An Old Custom [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... 1944 Syria was a French mandate, just as Palestine was a British mandate. The French divided Syria into Lebanon, on the coast, and present-day Syria, but ruled over both parts under one mandate. On Nov. 26-27, 1941, the Free French declared their intention to make Lebanon and Syria independent republics. Syria strongly objected to the separation of Lebanon, but in vain. An agreement signed Dec. 27, 1943, transferred, as of Jan. 1, 1944, all powers hitherto exercised by France to the Syrian and Lebanese Governments. Both republics elected parliaments, which in turn elected presidents of their respective states. In 1945 both countries became members of the United Nations.*** The division of Syria into Syria and Lebanon follows a religious line. Lebanon ? was made a separate republic under the mandate because of its predominant Christian population ? (? Lebanon,? Encyclopaedia Britannica, 14th. ed.). The population of Syria is Mohammedan, whereas the population of Lebanon consists mainly of Christian Arabs (Maronites and others) ...
7. The Danunians and the Velikovsky Revision [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... king of the Danunians and Qode? Astour not only links names that are supposed to be five or six hundred years apart, but he goes further and states that their foreign policies have not changed for half a millennium. He writes: "Thus, the information about Dunanat-Dunanapa fully harmonizes with what we have said above on the geopolitical and cultural attitude of Eastern Cilicia-- her face toward Syria, her back toward Anatolia. According to the testimony of Akizzi, Dunanat was hostile to the Hittites, and an ally of the Syrian Semitic states. The Hittite evocation of the Cedar-gods excludes Dunanapa from the complex of the Anatolian countries and includes her on the group of Syrian states. In the same way the above quoted Egyptian sources classify Qode: reckoning her among the Syrian territories and stating that as early as the first half of the XVth century she had been politically connected with the Canaanite states of the Orontes Plain. This same situation recurred, according to the Amarna letters, a century later and, according to Shalmaneser III and Zakir of Hamath, obtained ...
8. The Oedipus Legend and the Amarna Period [Kronos $]
... sphinx (sphinge) with broken wings, best known from the "Carnarvon Plaque",(8) appears first under Amenhotep III. It expresses pictorially the idea of "tamer of the (female) sphinx", whatever this may have meant, and regardless of whether the sphinge symbolized conquered Syria or Queen Tiy.(9) In my opinion it probably did both, and Davies was right when he stated: "On the gem of Amenhotep III, the sphinx may be taken to represent the homage of the king's Syrian consort.''(10) I think the well-known inscription on a fayence bowl in Edinburgh,(11) which makes of Tiy's father Yuya a prince of Djahi, should also be admitted as evidence. It is of course undoubtedly modern; however, it looks to me as if it had been copied- with some restorations- by an unskilled person from a genuine text, incompletely preserved on a broken vessel.(12) A person capable of producing an unusual inscription that would make so much sense as this ...
9. Ugarit [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... More important than the 250-year period when no tombs were built in Syria or Cyprus to connect the later tombs to the earlier ones, is the fact that the earliest tombs of each group (i.e., those of 1550 and 950 B.C.), separated by 600 years, are most similar. 5 The Cypriote vaulted tombs from 950-600 B.C. seem to undergo the same development as the Enkomi and Ugaritic tombs with 600 years separating the corresponding phases. It has been postulated that the later tombs somehow copied the earlier Cypriote or Syrian ones, but the tombs presumably copied must have been buried and invisible for some 600 years. 6 Similar tombs are found in Jerusalem, Asia Minor, and Urartu of the 9th-7th centuries, and again it is thought that they originated in 9th-7th-century Syro-Phoenicia. 7 But the only tombs of this type in that region, notably the ones from Ugarit, are placed centuries earlier. Leaving behind the regions bordering Syro-Phoenicia, we shall travel briefly to an actual Punic colony. In the 9th or 8th century B.C., 8 a ...
10. In Search of the Exodus [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Intermediate, may be illuminating. Dynasty XI seems to have been contemporaneous with the Dynasty of Ur III (approximately 150 years). There is reference to Ibdadi, ensi(ruler) of Byblos, in an Ur III text, and such links have been confirmed in princes' tombs discovered at Byblos displaying Ur III influence-- artifacts, pottery, inscriptions. These immediately precede Dynasty XII contacts with Byblos. [70 In the reign of Shu Sin a wall was said to have been built to contain Bedouin intrusions from the Syrian Steppe; it was 170 miles in length. A similar wall, or a string of fortresses, was built along the borders of Egypt with Sinai, again to contain Bedouin intrusions. In the Prophecy of Neferty the defenses were constructed during the reign of Amenemhat I, founder of Dynasty XII. In southern Mesopotamia during the reign of Ibbi Sin, last king of Ur III, conditions worsened. Food prices soared dramatically (a famine. similar to late Dynasty XI) and Bedouin raided farms and villages, bypassing the defense ...
