82. A further synchronism between Palestine and Egypt [SIS C&C Review $]
... [4, though he is elsewhere credited with 17 years of rule (II Kings 13:1). Dr. Bimson further equates the time of Jehoahaz with that of Mursilis II (of Hatti). Mursilis ruled between the times of Suppiluliumas I and Hattusilis III. It was Hattusilis who signed a very well-attested treaty with Ramesses II. Suppiluliumas was the grandfather of Hattusilis and was the king of Hatti who was petitioned by Ankhesenamun, the widow of Tutankhamun, to offer her a son in marriage; he was also an Amarna correspondent (EA 41). According to orthodox Egyptological teaching (Sir Alan Gardiner), Ankhesenamun became a widow 11 years after the fall of Akhenaten. This broadly confirms the postulated 60 year gap between the fall of Akhenaten and the accession of Ramesses II but note that this 60 year gap is likely to be an over-statement of the true interval, as it occurs in an era when over-counting of years appears to have been common. The sequence Akhenaten-Tutankhamun- Suppiluliumas I- Mursilis II- Muwatallis- Urhi-Teshub/Mursilis III- ...

... &CR 1996:1 (pp. 35-36). Dr Bimson was afterwards encouraged to publish the material for ISIS. The talk was preceded by the ISIS AGM, which decided that the society would not close down but continue to function at a reduced level. Labayu or Labaya? Concerning new texts from Israel, there is no publication as yet of the Ekron stone mentioned in C&C Review 1996:1 (p. 36) but the latest Israel Exploration Journal (1996 pp. 208-218) has published the cylindrical Amarna letter found recently at Beth Shean- see C&CR XVI (1994) p. 32. It is addressed to Labaya from Tagi and quotes the first few lines of a letter that Tagi had sent to Pharaoh, the rest being now illegible. Labaya is commonly written Labayu but the Akkadian transcription is la-ab-a-ya, or occasionally with ia at the end instead of ya. The name derives from the Canaanite word for lion, lb' (R Hess, Amarna Personal Names, 1993, p. 103) which would ...

... puzzling since his previously published graph of ring width indices shows only normal growth in the immediate vicinity of 1159 BC [Aegean Dendrochronology Project December 1990 Progress Report, Cornell University, p. 4- note that on this graph the dates were set at 39 years older than the new scheme and hence 1159 BC appears as 1198 BC. Professor Colin Renfrew reviews Kuniholm's work in the same issue of Nature (pp. 733-734) and is rightly sceptical but remains hopeful that further developments will settle the matter. The Bible, Ugarit and Amarna Michmanim is a Hebrew publication of the Hecht Museum in Haifa, with English summaries. Issue 10 (May 1996) raises anew the similarity between some biblical literature and that of the Late Bronze Age. In 'The Canaanite Literary Heritage in Ancient Hebrew Writing' (pp. 19-38& 8*) E Greenstein applies literary criteria to compare biblical literature from Numbers, Isaiah, Psalms etc with the Ugaritic Baal Cycle, Aqhat etc. and concludes there was a direct influence from Ugarit to the Bible (on the New Chronology the ...
85. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... One of your arguments is that Rib-Addi speaks of ? my fathers ?; however, it is possible that Omri was related to the royal house. For instance Jehu who replaced the dynasty of Omri is named in Shalmanessar ? s inscription as of the house of Omri. Kings had many descendants-Ahab who had seventy wives in Samaria, must have also left many children, possible pretenders if left alive by Jehu. Your other argument in equaling Ramaja to Jehoram, I cannot check at this moment since I have not the Letters of El Amarna before me. But if the king is called persistently in cuneiform Rib Addi, why should he be called there differently? Would it not indicate, if Ramaja was really Jehoram, that he was different from Rib Addi? You have probably noticed in ? Ages ? that Addi means Ab in Hebrew and Rib means the elder brother or the elder son. But certainly you are justified in having your interpretation of the events and personalities of that age. Why should you not try and publish your essay, that, in this ...

87. The Sequence of Dynasties [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Sequence of Dynasties With the close of the Amarna period we have reached, according to our revised scheme, the latter part of the ninth century. The eighth century and the beginning of the seventh were the periods of Libyan and Ethiopian dynasties in Egypt. The conventional scheme assigns the Amarna period to the earlier part of the fourteenth century and has the Nineteenth Dynasty, that of Seti and Ramses II, and the Twentieth Dynasty, that of Ramses III, the last great emperor of Egypt, succeed before the Libyans and Ethiopians ruled Egypt. The transition of power from the Eighteenth to the Nineteenth Dynasty is regarded as an obscure period of Egyptian history. The circumstances under which the Nineteenth Dynasty was established are said to be unknown. This Dynasty is one of the most famous successions of pharaohs Ramses I, Seti I, Ramses II, and Merneptah. Still another name is preserved, that of Haremhab. He belonged neither to the Eighteenth nor to the Nineteenth Dynasty; he was not a descendant of Akhnaton, nor was he an ancestor of the ...
88. Letters to the Editor C&AH 3:2 [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... used them as the best evidence-- he did not try to work them into contrived archaeological concepts based on doubtful conventional chronology. Gammon's Glasgow plan attempts to preserve the present structure of Egyptian history as closely as possible, minimizing errors as necessary. It seems to me that more convincing evidence is needed. His placement of Horemhab in Dynasty 19 is circumstantial and explains nothing, whereas Velikovsky's evidence reveals many mysteries concerning Horemhab's reign not solved by placing him in the time of Tutankhamen. I think the many references to Tutankhamen and El Amarna are explained by the fact that, just as in our day we have King Tut exhibits long after his death, the treasures in his tomb were exploited by the Pharaonic administration to suit its own purposes. I also feel historians are not paying enough attention to evidence in Oedipus and Akhnaton for dealing with the problems of dynastic succession; this book is important to such reconstruction, even if Amenhotep III's occupation of a Theban palace during a so-called co-regency may still be valid. Problems related to the end of the 18th dynasty may ...
89. A Reply to Mr. Cohen [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... neglects to mention. Exactly what the many references to Tutankhamen and el-Amarna have to do with the Pharaonic administration and Haremhab in the Velikovskian setting is unclear. Does Mr. Cohen suggest that Haremhab had access to Tutankhamen's tomb and made frequent reference to that pharaoh and to el-Amarna? This is certainly not the case, while the deceptive references to Oedipus and Akhnaton have no direct bearing on the chronological questions under discussion. I am intrigued to learn that there was in fact only one Suppiluliumas of Hatti-- that the one of the Amarna period was in fact Shalmaneser III of Assyria. Velikovsky refers to the fact that a "Sapalulme" (Suppiluliumas) was mentioned in the archive of Shalmaneser III, and that this prince (king) was an el-Amarna author.[1 As to the question of the two Tushrattas and the two Azirus, common name usage is a weak excuse to explain away the difficulties of this section of the Velikovskian solution. Velikovsky locates Tushratta's kingdom in northern Media. We have from the Hittite archives the record of a campaign by Suppiluliumas ...
90. Calibrated Radiocarbon and the 'Methodological Fault-Line' [SIS C&C Review $]
... artefacts of Zoser and Sneferu) iii). accuracy is also lost by the wide ranges of calibrated ages (thus one cannot distinguish objects of Nebwenenef, conventionally early 13th century BC, from those of Tjanefer, early 12th century BC) iv). results can differ radically between laboratories. Shaw's conclusion, that calibrated radiocarbon is consistent with historical chronology but of limited value in its application, can certainly be criticised. The one success he was able to point to in the application of calibrated radiocarbon was an approximate date for the Amarna period. The radiocarbon range was 1390-1260, central dates being 1360 or 1285, the former corresponding nicely to the conventional dating of Amarna of 1350-1334 BC. In accepting a calibrated radiocarbon date for the latter end of the 18th Dynasty Shaw seems to have overlooked the problems encountered in dating the earlier part of that Dynasty. For Thera erupted some time in the early part of the 18th Dynasty- most probably some time between the reigns of Amenhotep I and Thutmose II but just possibly, at a pinch, as early as the ...
