4. The Foundations of the Assyro-Babylonian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... importance for the fixing of the Neo-Assyrian chronology was immediately realised [4 ]. It was pointed out that the limmu-list at several points could be linked up with and brought into chronological harmony with the Canon of Ptolemy - a list of kings and their length of reigns beginning with the rule of Nabonassar in Babylon (747-733 BC) through the Babylonian, Persian, Greek and Roman rulers to Antoninus Pius (138-161 AD), a contemporary of Ptolemy. In this way, and not by the aid of the Eponym Canon eclipse, it was first shown that the eponymy of Pur-Sagale fell in the year 763 BC. Prof. Eberhard Schrader, in a work published in 1878, ...
5. Heinsohn's Ancient "History" [Journals] [Aeon]
... out problems as they come to our attention. The current article examines Heinsohn's attempted identification of Hammurabi with Darius, arguably the most novel and controversial claim in a historical reconstruction remarkable for its radical nature. This identification, should it be upheld, would signal a revolution in our understanding of ancient history, since it would mean that the Old Babylonian king's reign- conventionally dated to c. 1792-1750 BCE (according to the middle chronology)- rightly belongs in the Achaemenid period (c . 500 BC). Heinsohn's claims have the singular advantage of being easily falsified, one of the hallmarks of a sound scientific hypothesis. Jan Sammer accurately summarized the situation in 1988, in a ...

7. Babylonians and Persians: The Business Archives [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2005:2 (May 2005) Home | Issue Contents Babylonians and Persians: The Business Archives Laurence Dixon In this paper I hope to show that the business archives from Babylon define the length of the Babylonian kings precisely, but contradict the standard orthodox chronology of the early Persian kings. The archives therefore throw into question the details of Sweeney's historical construction. They would also imply that Palmer's reliance on Ptolemy's Canon is misguided and it is therefore unsafe to base his arguments on the orthodox chronology for this period. At the beginning of the 19th century, before a cuneiform tablet had been found or an ancient inscription read, historians were confident ...
8. Venus Tablet Anomalies [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1989 No 2 (Feb 1990) Home | Issue Contents Venus Tablet Anomalies by John D. Weir The Babylonian baked clay Venus Tablets are damaged copies of a twenty-one year sequence giving the day after settings of the planet Venus and the rising dates with astrological omens added. Twenty-one years is the reign length of King Ammisaduqa of the Hammurabi Dynasty. Since his 8th date-formula is found after Year 8 of the Venus Tablets, the record is thought to have originated in Ammisaduqa's reign. The historical date of this reign has not yet been established by archaeological means. But an astronomical investigation carried out by Peter J. Huber of Harvard University dated ...
9. Computed Planetary Orbits and the Babylonian Observations of Venus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1986 No 2 (Feb 1987) Home | Issue Contents Computed Planetary Orbits and the Babylonian Observations of Venus Eric W Crew The Babylonian inscribed tablets, sometimes described as the Ammizaduga or Ninsianna tablets, as those found in the ruins of Nineveh, record the disappearances and re-appearances of the planet Venus over a period of about 21 years. Computer programs were compiled to show the orbits of Earth and Venus in a simplified co-planar model. The times of inferior and superior conjunctions were obtained and the intervals between similar conjunctions (synodic periods) plotted against time. The computer orbit of Venus was modified until the calculated synodic periods corresponded closely to those ...
