31. Hammurabi and the Revised Chronology [Journals] [Kronos]
... The present article is a modified and partially updated version of one of the original unpublished chapters of Ages in Chaos. Readership response is welcome. - LMG King Hammurabi is the best known of the early monarchs of ancient times due to his famous law code, found inscribed on stone. This great lawgiver of ancient Babylon belonged to the First Babylonian Dynasty which came to an end, under circumstances shrouded in mystery, some three or four generations after Hammurabi. For the next several centuries, the land was in the domain of a people known as the Kassites. They left few examples of art and hardly any literary works - theirs was an age comparable to and contemporaneous with that ...
32. Reflections Of The Persian Wars [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... nevertheless, when we examine the two great kings we perceive that they are essentially and profoundly akin." (1 ) This article is a continuation of research into Professor Gunnar Heinsohn's hypothesis (2 ) presented in Sumerians and Akkadians Never Existed. (3 ) One of the claims Professor Heinsohn makes is that the 11 kings of the First Babylonian Dynasty are the alter egos of the real 11 kings of the Persian Dynasty. (4 ) Having satisfied myself that the stratographical record, as presented by Heinsohn, shows no clear correlations with conventional chronology, it seemed proper to go to Mesopotamian history and examine whether or not the First Babylonian Dynasty was merely a reflection of the real ...
... the lower world, and I believe it is conceded by Egyptologists that Anubis in jackal form was either contemporaneous with or preceded Osiris in this capacity. In the exact centre of the circular zodiac of Denderah we find the jackal located at the pole of the equator; it obviously represents the present Little Bear. Now, do we get any Babylonian connection so far as we have gone? We learn, to begin with, from Pierret [6 ] that the hippopotamus, the emblem of Set and Typhon, was the hieroglyph of the Babylonian god "Baal." Do we get the jackal constellation in Babylonian astronomy? Of this there is no question, and in early times ...
34. More Problems with Sothic Dating [Journals] [SIS Review]
... period the Egyptians were actually using a calendar that was 41 days ahead of the calendar Sothic dating posits. Geminus and P. Paris 1 have been misused, and, based on more detailed analysis of the documents. There is also a correction to the earlier explanation given for the matches achieved by Porten using the Sothic dating calendar and the Babylonian calendar for double-dated documents from Elephantine. Jess Lasken recently retired as an attorney at the US Government National Science Foundation. He has had articles about ancient history published in C&CR, C&CW, JACF, Epigraphic Society Occasional Papers, Discussions in Egyptology and elsewhere.

35. The Two Sargons and Their Successors (Part II) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Assyrians were also Semites, and they continued to express their language in writing through the utilisation of the same cuneiform script. Because the bulk of the first published inscriptions from Mesopotamia were those unearthed in Assyrian localities, their language was, by universal consent, at first called Assyrian. Subsequent studies then revealed that the Assyrians, as also the Babylonians, referred to their language as Akkadian.(1 ) This has led some authorities to assert that the designation of this language as Babylonian and/or Assyrian "is not exactly correct."(2 ) While that statement requires further clarification, it does not mean that the Assyrians did not have a language of their own since ...
36. Book Review [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Nov 1979) Home | Issue Contents Book Review The Twelfth Planet by Zecharia Sitchin Published by G. Allen Unwin, 1977 . Review by Peter James AT FIRST glance this well-produced and, on the whole, pleasantly written volume offers the promise of being a stimulating and serious attempt to reinterpret ancient Near Eastern religion and human prehistory. Relying on Babylonian and Biblical mythology in the main, and displaying some apparent erudition, Sitchin develops a model for the origins of civilisation that reminds one at once of the catastrophist theories of Immanuel Velikovsky and Robert Temple's Claim of extraterrestrial intervention in the ancient Near East. The primum mobile of Sitchin's cosmos is a hypothetical twelfth planet', known to the ...
37. Three Views of Heinsohn's Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... "In any case, it is instructive that the first element in the name, whose reading is plain, has the Akkadian form is-me (i .e ., "he has heard") and not the West Semitic form one would expect: iasmah, as in the name Iasmah-Adad known from Mari. Does this indicate a strong Babylonian influence in Hazor, as we inferred above from the Akkadian name of the king of Hazor?" " [A . Malamat: "Hazor The Head of all those Kingdoms'" in Journal of Biblical Literature (1960) vol. XXVIII, p. 18]. A Mesopotamian background for Hazor in the period of the Hyksos ...
38. Ancient Astronomy and Celestial Divination [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... of celestial phenomena and the interpretation of their prophetic significance, especially as applied to kings and nations, were closely related sciences carried out by the same scholars. Both ancient sources and modern research agree that astronomy and celestial divination arose in Babylon. Only in the late nineteenth century, however, did scholars begin to identify and decipher the original Babylonian sources, and the process of understanding those sources has been long and difficult. This volume presents recent work on Babylonian celestial divination and on the Greek inheritors of the Babylonian tradition. Both philological and mathematical work are included. The essays shed new light on all of the known textual sources, including the omen series Enuma Anu Enlil, ...
39. Sennecherib & Esarhaddo [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the system differs, so does the date. Why must we accept Jonsson's dates? He is simply using a part of Ptolemy's data, which credits Sennecherib with a 24 year reign. Conventional Chronology Conventional chronology, from 747 B.C ., is based mainly on data from "Ptolemy's Canon," with some modification. Although only Babylonian kings are listed, the regnal-years of Sennecherib are thought to be indicated by counting the years from the beginning of Ptolemy's 1st, to the end of his "2nd Interregnums." According to this view, Sennecherib reigned for 24 years, from 704-681 B.C . This is "supported" by G. Smith's "Eponym Canon ...
