31. Bouquets and Brickbats: A Reply to Martin Sieff [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... used to list invoices on ostraca, the style of which has also been dated to the 9th century; and The Assyrian Palace Ware discovered above the destruction level that coincides with the Assyrian rebuilding and occupation of the city following its conquest by Sargon II. Against this, Sieff offered Yehoshua Etzion's "forthcoming book" in which "the Iron Age settlement at Samaria [is placed not in Israelite hands, but Samaritan!" 42 The Samaritans, of course, were composed of a conglomeration of peoples, among whom were Babylonians, Syrians, and Arabians, which the conquering Assyrians settled at Samaria. In time these foreigners intermarried with the remaining Israelites-- i.e. those who had not been deported by the Assyrians-- but it was not until later that a distinctive Samaritan culture developed. Unless their contents are divulged, however, "forthcoming books" cannot be accepted as refutations of stated claims. Sieff is therefore obligated to tell us on what grounds Etzion based his conclusions. Even so, Etzion's theory is not new. John Bimson, who had ...

... power between Egypt and the "Hittites". The empire was on the best of terms with Egypt and Mitannian princesses married pharaohs of the eighteenth dynasty. Culturally, however, the Mitannians were under heavy Sumero-Akkadian influence although they blended the writing, literature, religion, law and science of these earlier peoples with their own, native, Hurrian traditions and then passed this blend on to the other peoples with whom their far-flung migrations brought them into contact. Their principal beneficiaries were the "Hittites" but also it would appear, the Syrians and Canaanites as well. Altogether, the scope and impact of Hurrian influence is most impressive.(11) III Now, according to Velikovsky's chronological revisions, the Hurrians flourished not in the 16th-14th centuries B.C. but in the 11th-9th, and, as we have seen, he postulates their identification with the Carians.(12) Showing the weak linguistic evidence for a reading khur/hur rather than khar/kar, and noting the obvious importance of the Hurrians about whom almost nothing is known, he recalls that the ...

33. Haremhab Appointed to Administer Egypt [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... fan, and throughout the texts he carries the honorific title ? the fan-bearer to the right of the king.? On another block (Berlin fragment), Haremhab is shown in front of another group of Egyptian dignitaries; he and the rest of them display obeisance by bending their bodies before the king whose likeness is not preserved; Haremhab, though in front of those who pay homage, is not depicted larger than the others in the group: nor does he wear a diadem on this bas-relief. Dignitaries of foreign lands, Syrians being prominent among them, are shown as paying homage and affirming their role of vassals to the king, whose likeness is destroyed. The text, reconstructed by Gardiner, makes it appear that the foreign chiefs availed themselves of Haremhab ? s good standing with the king to assure him of their loyalty. Words spoken to His Majesty___ when___ came the great ones of all foreign lands to beg life from him, by the hereditary prince, sole friend and royal scribe Haremhab, justified. He said ...

... skies around, and tilting and flooding the world. He had a son-dragon, "K'au-fu" who wished to keep pace with the Sun. K'au-fu tried to quench his thirst en route by drinking up the rivers of China but succumbed finally of thirst. Cardona identifies the myth with the Phaeton myth and episode. Phaeton, eager to drive the Sun's chariot, did so incompetently. Legends recite that he came so close to Earth that the rivers of Asia, Africa and Europe dried up. Strabo's Geography mentions the terror of the Syrians and Aramaeans at the sight of Typhon, probably the same as Phaeton [6. That the myth of Phaeton describes a shifting of heavenly bodies, we know from Plato. That Phaeton was a comet, or a 'blazing star,' we know from Cicero. That this 'blazing star' became a planet, we know from Hesiod. And that this planet was the planet Venus, we know from both Nonnos and Solinus [7. Then Cardona takes up the question of the Chinese "fire pearls," or " ...

... his anxieties, in a form that has not been generally appreciated. As mentioned in an earlier place, he gave the present Greek names of the planets for the first time. He offers the lame excuse that the fiery terms used for the heavenly bodies were so similar because the Greeks did not know the planets and did not want unfairly to give names to some but not to others. Perhaps the whole matter of naming was controversial, involving as it did ancient psychological associations, theological theories, and intercultural contacts with Egyptians, Syrians, and others. In any event, attention should be called to Plato's statement that the heavenly bodies are gods without souls. He distinguishes these from the Olympian gods, whom he dislikes, precisely because of their reputation for immorality and uncontrollability. He is, in effect, trying to rid the mundane scene of these gods, by exiling them in the eternal immutable astral regions. He would then fix the calendar of festivals to their periods. This would seem to be a major unconscious philosophical step towards controlling the gods and ...

THE HOUSE OF OMRI In Palestine, the house of Judah and the house of Israel went through a series of revolutions. These kindred nations waged wars with each other and against the Syrians. Under Jehu and his son Jehoahaz, Israel was oppressed by Hazael of Damascus, one of the el-Amarna correspondents, and his son Ben-Hadad. Relief came only in the days of Joash, grandson of Jehu. The Second Book of Kings gives this vivid picture: "Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died. And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face.... And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him ...

37. Dating the Wars of Seti I [SIS C&C Review $]
... remains to ask whether such a result is reflected in the Old Testament. We read in II Kings 13:4-5 that when the armies of Jehoahaz had been decimated and Israel was left helpless before the Aramaeans, desperation brought a change of heart in the apostate king: "Then Jehoahaz besought the Lord, and the Lord hearkened to him; for he saw the oppression of Israel, how the king of Syria [Aram oppressed them. Therefore the Lord gave Israel a saviour, so that they escaped from the hand of the Syrians, and the people of Israel dwelt in their homes as formerly." There has been much discussion over the identity of the anonymous "saviour". One view is that the verse refers to Joash, Jehoahaz's successor, who defeated Ben-Hadad three times and regained some of the lost Israelite cities (II Kings 13:24-25); or to Jeroboam II, son of Joash, who restored Israel's Transjordanian territory and even conquered Damascus and Hamath (II Kings 14:25-28). But as J. Gray remarks: " ...

... of plague (Gurney). Syria, in fact, then fell into his lap largely without further violence, a series of elaborate treaties of vassalage and protection drawl up with Kizzuwatna (Cilicia), Amurru of Aziru (the kingdom of Hazael?), and Ugarit of Niqmaddu, among others. These treaties of allegiance have survived and serve to illustrate how far Egypt of Akhnaton had lost control of events in Syrian and Palestine, the razzias of "the king of Hatti" (Shalmaneser III) inspiring such fear that the Syrians were only too happy to accept Hittite imperialism. The very fact, however, that Suppiluliumas was able to draw up such treaties must suppose that he was seen as an instrument capable of repelling the Assyrian, having defeated him on the battlefield. (c) Suppiluliumas does not appear in the annals of Shalmaneser III as the opposing force at the head of a large army. Sapalulme belongs to the very first years of his reign, together with Katazilu (Hattusilis) of Kummuhu (the Commagene). In year 6 Kundashpi ...
