261. Kadmos: The Primeval King [Kronos $]
... then is the expected tradition linking him to a great deluge? OGYGOS Although there is no myth that links Kadmos to the flood, there are indications that such a myth once existed. Thus Kadmos' father is sometimes given as Ogygos, a shadowy figure who gave his name to a Greek version of the deluge- the Ogygian flood. Ogygos' prominence in Theban myth is also reflected by the fact that the ancient Thebans were called Ogygians after him.(55) A more common name for the Thebans, as witnessed by Homer, however, was Kadmeans. This situation alerts us to the possibility that Kadmos and Ogygos might have been one and the same mythological figure. This possibility is strengthened by the additional fact that, in several ancient sources, Ogygos, like Kadmos, appears as the first king of Thebes.(56) At this point the meaning of Kadmos' name becomes of interest. Many scholars, following Bochart's 17th century suggestion, derive "Kadmos" from the Semitic root "kdm" which, inter alia means "east" ...
262. The Case of the Turkish Turn Coat [Kronos $]
... an obscure tradition survived".(31) Apparently, he had in mind some sort of local catastrophe, perhaps of a social or economic nature. Velikovsky of course postulated a series of global catastrophes. Freud also predicted that scientists eventually would be able to verify the same factors underlying the national epics of the Germans, the Indians, the Finns, and other ancient peoples.(32) He also claimed that the cause of these epics had disappeared before the arrival of Alexander the Great, who lamented that he had no Homer to immortalize his deeds.(33) Velikovsky used historical and legendary accounts, as well as mythological motifs, to reorder the course of ancient history from the Exodus to Alexander (and beyond). On the face of it, Velikovsky was probably even less likely than Freud to have been a "closet mystic". However, Velikovsky's father had been an early Zionist-assimilationist.(34) Velikovsky was apparently rather indifferent about his religious heritage, but was intensely interested in and proud of his people's cultural traditions and history. ...

... Sumerian Uruk period have been analysed and seem to be of wine also. Some anthropologists think that fermentation actually preceded agriculture and even that barley beer was made as long ago as 10,000 years. Homeric sacrifice The Independent date unnown A site on Crete appears to have held funeral pyres from 'the late eleventh century BC to the mid-sixth century BC'. In front of one funeral pyre were the remains of a male sacrificial victim in similar circumstances to the sacrifices of Trojan victims before the funeral pyre of Achilles, as described by Homer in the second half of the eigth century BC. Some finely carved ivory heads at the site are dated to 600 BC.

268. Ice Cores and Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... memory with the great eruption of Santorini [7. The early dates for the long lives of the Patriarchs of hundreds of years cannot be accepted, any more than it took God six days to create the world, or that King Arthur pulled the sword Excalibur from the stone. In this sense the Old Testament has been a hindrance rather than a help to archaeology, for one has to approach archaeology with a very open mind and not blind faith in fairy tales. Apart from the above, we also have the works of Homer: the Iliad and the Odyssey, and the neglected Rig Vedas- all evidence for the movement of tribes and peoples. There was a great movement of peoples at about 2000BC which was the result of the discovery of metal weapons with which to conquer, kill, and enslave. Until very recently archaeologists had little understanding of science. They were Biblical scholars, epigraphists, or in the case of the Aegean, steeped in the Classics. Forty years ago the accepted view was that all civilisation and knowledge originated in the so ...

... graves). Her consort was also called Attis, or Anchises. The sign of the zodiac, Capricorn, was an attribute of Aphrodite, as the goddess of love; the lion, Leo, was her symbol as the goddess of birth. The one season year was known to begin either with the fall or spring equinox (the Eastern custom) as was practised in Sparta and Delphi, or from winter or summer solstice as was practised in the North to this century. That was the custom in Athens and Thebes (Homer: Ode to Aphrodite, 45-200; Apollodoros III, 14, 3-4; Hyginus: Fabels #58, 94, 164, 251, and Poetic Astronomy II, 7 etc). c).
