... in the centers of the bronze civilization: Cyprus, Egypt, or Greece. It was imported from afar for making bronze (6 ). Ezekiel (27:12) says that the maritime people of Tyre traded in tin which they brought from Tarshish. Tin is mentioned earlier by Isaiah (7 ) and is repeatedly referred to by Homer (8 ). Herodotus told of its being imported into Greece, and the "tin islands" probably signify the British Isles (9 ). Posidonius in the second century before this era referred to the Iberian Peninsula as the mining source of imported tin (10); so did Pliny, and Diodorus told of its being mined ...

... **) ** After completing this article, the author found references to a few more Mycenaean C14 dates which he will treat separately in a short article in a subsequent issue of Pensee. Near the modern town of Pylos in Messenia in the southwestern Peloponnesus, a Mycenaean palace and town, taken to be the ancient Pylos of which Homer sang, were uncovered. According to legend, Nestor, its aged king, fought in the Trojan War. Carl W. Blegen, the excavator of both Troy and Pylos, assigned absolute dates to a burned layer at the site of Hissarlik in Northwestern Turkey, which he assumed to represent the Greek destruction of King Priam's Troy, ...

... Odyssey. The epic was most probably put into writing early in the seventh century before the present era; it describes the travels and wanderings of Odysseus after the fall of Troy, in the siege of which he had participated. The wanderer also visited Hades, the abode of the departed. There he saw the unfortunate mother-wife of Oedipus; Homer called her Epicaste: "And I saw the mother of Oedipodes, fair Epicaste, who wrought a monstrous deed in ignorance of mind in that she wedded her own son, and he, when he had slain his own father, wedded her, and straightway the gods made these things known among men. . . . She made ...

... , where he admits, back in 1986, that there was a time when he defended Velikovsky against Peter James as regards Velikovsky's planetary identifications in the Iliad etc. but later came to agree with James against them. In view of this, my current critcism must seem rather jaded! However, in reaffirming his position, Cardona writes: Homer weaves a poetic tale which centres round the siege of Troy with divine intervention thrown in for good measure. ' (emphasis added). This sounds as though ancient bards threw a bit of theophany into their stories in much the same way as a modern novelist might throw in some sex and violence for good measure'. Well, ...

... ." Now Eridanus is and was in heaven surely not, in this context, on the Lombard plain. And here also "an ampler aether clothes the meads with roseate light, and they know their own sun, and stars of their own." There is no mention here of the "pallid plains of asphodel" of Homeric convention. Those hovering souls, "peoples and tribes unnumbered," are clearly on the "true earth in heaven," for it is also stated that many of them await the time of being born or reborn on earth in true Pythagorean fashion. And there is more than an Orphic hint in the words of father Anchises: ...

... moved the earth off its hinges," and, in the words of Isaiah, "the earth moved exceedingly" and was "removed out of her place," mighty and repeated earthquakes devastated whole countries, destroyed cities, and shattered the walls of strongholds. "Bloodstained stormer of walls" is the ever repeated epithet of Ares in Homer. Hesiod, too, calls Ares "sacker of towns."1 "Behold," said Amos, "the Lord commandeth, and he will smite the great house with breaches [into pieces]." Then came the "commotion" of the days of Uzziah, and of the days of Ahaz, and of the ...

... the ocean, which it had not done before the planetary encounters. Later interpreters said that there was no reason for the ancients to say this, since the Great Bear must have always set toward the ocean. 38 The Illiad also may contain descriptions of changes in the solar system. Velikovsky noted that there is a debate as to when Homer composed the stories about these changes. Velikovsky pointed out that the participants of the planetary encounters could give a clue as to the earliest time Homer could have lived. Some authorities place Homer as early as - 1159 and as late as -685. 39 Velikovsky suggested that since the Venus-Mars encounter is implied, Homer must have written his works ...

From: The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER ELEVEM The Blasted Career of the Mighty Swordsman A Homeric hymn addressed Ares: "who whirl your fiery sphere among the planets in their sevenfold courses through the aether wherein your blazing steeds ever bear your above the third firmament of heaven." [1 ] Ares had many names and epithets in and among the peoples of the world. He is Mars of the Romans, Nergal of the Babylonians, Gokihar (and Indra) of the Hindus, Odin of the Teutons, Huitzilopochtili of the Aztecs, and the Archangel Gabriel of the Jews. In Babylonia, writes P ...

... thorn-bush, wandered about the earth, lame, blind, lonely and accursed, always avoiding the paths of men, until death overtook him." (117) Another infamous sinner was the Edonian strongman Lykurgos, mentioned earlier. Lykurgos drew the wrath of the gods for his assault upon Dionysus and the maenads. This episode was related by Homer in the Iliad. But if you are some one of the immortals come down from the bright sky, know that I will not fight against any god of the heaven, since even the son of Dryas, Lykurgos the powerful, did not live long; he who tried to fight with the gods of the bright sky, who ...

Further, white mice were kept in the temples of Apollo.(17) According to Gilbert Murray, Apollo "is the most splendid and awful of Homer's Olympians" and "when the great archer draws near to Olympus all the gods tremble and start from their seats'.(18) Murray makes an interesting comparison between the gods of Homer and those of the Athenians at the time of Socrates. In both cases he finds that Apollo, Zeus, and Athene comprised a triad of deities with Apollo being the most important of the three.(19) The Greek Ares has long been identified as a personification of the planet Mars. Yet, Ares never attained the prominence ...
