... Ramses, and the "revolt of Palestine" followed the unfortunate outcome of this contest. This three years' revolt is described also in the Second Book of Kings. The battle by the river Euphrates took place in the fourth year of Jehoiakim (Jeremiah 46:2 ); as a consequence of it Syria and Palestine were exposed to Babylonian conquest. The tribute which had been paid to the pharaoh (II Kings 23:35) was discontinued. II KINGS 24:1 In his [Jehoialdm's] days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years.2 It took the Egyptians these three years to recover sufficiently to send an army of ...
62. Assyrians and Babylonian Chronologies for 8th - 6th Centuries BC [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1994 No 1 (Jan 1994) Home | Issue Contents FORUM Assyrians and Babylonian Chronologies for 8th - 6th Centuries BC C.L . Prasher Carl Olof Jonsson has claimed that the Assyrian and Babylonian chronologies from the 8th to the 6th century BC are both firmly established [1 ]. However an exception to this has been pointed out by B.J . Aaronson in respect of the identity of Pul' of 2 Kings 15:19-20 and 1 Chronicles, 5:26 [2 ]. E.R . Thiele identifies Pul with Tiglath-pileser III, on the grounds that the latter Scripture may be read, And the God of ...
63. Ankylosis in the Chronology of Reconstructed History? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol V No 4 (1984) Home | Issue Contents Ankylosis in the Chronology of Reconstructed History?- A letter from by Christoph Marx During a course on "Elements of Assyrian and Babylonian Chronology" [1 ], I took the opportunity to look at the fact that most of the chronologies around the Mars catastrophes have been linked to the date of 15th. June, -763, the day of a solar eclipse mentioned in the Eponym Lists [2 }) . These again have been linked to Greek and Roman chronology by way of the Ptolemaic Canon of Babylonian kings, "the correctness of which is proved by the lunar eclipses mentioned in the ...

65. Conference: Under One Sky [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... : Under One Sky: Astronomy & Mathematics in the Ancient Near East Archaeologically recovered materials from Egypt and Mesopotamia provide the earliest written sources of astronomy and mathematics known to us today. They reveal that already by the early second millennium BC advanced mathematical techniques had been developed to solve both practical and abstract problems. In the first millennium BC, Babylonian astronomers used developments of these mathematical methods to calculate planetary and lunar phenomena such as the dates of the first and last visibilities of the planets, and eclipses of the sun and moon. This conference will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent work on the history of astronomy and mathematics in the Ancient Near East. In ...
66. Forum: The 900-700 BC era - a Conundrum C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Egypt, the magnificent Dynasty XVIII was coming to its end, eventually being supplanted by the less glamorous Dynasty XIX, apparently initiated by Seti I in about 810 BC. By 700 BC Israel had collapsed, with the fall of Samaria and the death of Hosea, whilst Judah was heading towards extinction at the hands of the Assyrians and the Babylonians, even if it was not till 587 BC that Jerusalem finally fell to Nebuchadrezzar (a Babylonian). There are quite a number of minor synchronisms between Palestine, Syria, Assyria, Hatti, Egypt etc. in this era which support the general picture (e .g . the visit of Elisha to Damascus at which he met ...
67. The El-Amarna Letters and the Ancient Records of Assyria and Babylonia [Journals] [Pensee]
... century B.C . rulers of these lands were actually contemporaries of Akhnaton and/or his father, Amenhotep (Amenophis) III, in the Amarna period. Briefly, this evidence emerges from detailed sequential king-list inscriptions from Assyria and partial ones from Babylonia, plus other records, in which names of various fourteenth and late-fifteenth century Assyrian and Babylonian monarchs (but not names of ninth century ones) turn out to be the same as those found in the el-Amarna letters. Here, in order to bring the magnitude of the problem more clearly into focus, a modest attempt is made to direct attention to a number of key interrelationships among principal personalities in the letters whose names are ...
... stars of Orion's Belt. And about all of them manifold legends are told. Thus, "Earendel, brightest of angels thou," might well point to the brightest among the fixed stars, Sirius. But even the derivation from the root aurr = moisture, ear = sea, would not exclude Sirius. Quite the contrary. The Babylonian New Year's ritual says: "Arrow Star, who measures the depth of the sea"; the Avesta states: "Tishtriya, by whom the waters count." And as Tishtriya, "the Arrow," watches Lake Vurukasha (see p. 215), so Teutonic Egil is the guardian of Hvergelmer, the whirlpool, ...

... Romans that Cicero denied the possibility of planetary orbital changes simply because he believed such changes to be contrary to the planets' divine nature. (17) The irony is that these very orbital changes were among the major characteristics that made ancient man think of the planets as gods. (4 ) The Most Prominent of the Planets Among the Babylonians, texts that deal strictly with astronomical, as opposed to astrological, observations do not seem to have made their appearance until about the middle of the seventh century B.C . during the reign of Nabonassar. It is from about this time, down to the turn of the millennium, that we have in our possession a collection ...
70. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... " Ningirsu is thus "the god who changes darkness into light," the god "whose splendor is heroic." (4 ) That such statements would be made of the now-distant Saturn seems unthinkable. Rather, this is the very language one would expect in descriptions of the "sun" in ancient hymns. (5 ) The Babylonian sun god is Shamash, and Babylonian astronomical texts say in unequivocal terms: "The planet Saturn is Shamash." (6 ) Thus the Greek historian Diodorus reports that Babylonian astronomers knew the planet Saturn as the star of the "sun" (Helios). (7 ) Though early Egyptian sources do not offer a formal astronomy ...
