... From "Peoples of the Sea" © 1977 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Persians And Greeks Invade Egypt Pereset: Philistines or Persians? IN WESTERN THEBES, more than three hundred miles up the Nile from the Delta, Ramses III built a sumptuous mortuary temple to himself. On its walls he had engraved for posterity the story of his military victories and the record was profusely illustrated with bas-reliefs.[1 ] The place, called Medinet Habu, is across the Nile from Luxor, under the cliffs that hide the Valley of the Kings with its royal sepulchres. Usimare-meramun- Ramesse-hekaon (Ramses III) defended and saved the country when it was in peril ...
2. Who Were the Assyrians of the Persian Period [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:2 (May 1993) Home | Issue Contents Who Were the Assyrians of the Persian Period Gunnar Heinsohn See note * below. The encounter between the Achaemenian Empire and Babylonia (Mesopotamia) seems to have left surprisingly insignificant impact on the latter. The flowering created by the contacts of Babylonia with Hellenism and the Parthian civilization respectively stands in unmistakable contrast to the sterility and lack of interaction which seems to characterize the Achaemenian presence in Babylonia. (A .L . Oppenheim, "The Babylonian Evidence of the Achaemenian Rule in Mesopotamia," in The Cambridge History of Iran, Volume I [Cambridge, 1985], pp. 530-595.) It ...
3. Old-Babylonian and Persian Terra-Cotta Reliefs [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:4 (1991) Home | Issue Contents Old-Babylonian and Persian Terra-Cotta Reliefs Gunnar Heinsohn In Die Sumerer Gab es Nicht, as well as in Ghost Empires of the Past, the author tried to prove that the Ancient Near Eastern periods from the middle of the third to the beginning of the second millennium BCE are desk-fabricated duplications of the well-known periods of the first millennium BCE. (1 ) Thus, I claim that the Sargonic Akkadians (2400 BCE onwards) correspond to the pre-Medish Assyrians (750 BCE onwards), who should not be mixed up with the Sargonids (conventionally dated to the same period but stratigraphically belonging to the Persian period). ...
4. Heinsohn's Ancient "History" [Journals] [Aeon]
... ; rather, he had to fight and conspire for everything he achieved. Darius' father, far from being the king of Babylon, was a satrap of Parthia and Hyrcania.  At age 28, Darius could be found serving as a spear-carrier in the army of Cambyses II, son of Cyrus the Great, as the Persian king set about conquering Egypt.  Upon the sudden death of Cambyses II, chaos overran the Persian empire, whereupon the rebel Gaumata (also known as Bardiya or Smerdis) usurped the kingship. Together with six other nobles, Darius succeeded in murdering Gaumata and claiming the throne for himself. The apparent chaos among the Persian ...
5. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Journals] [Aeon]
... .Problems: The reasons for the origin of the feudal kingship of a theocratic character are admittedly unknown. It is not clear why feudal hierarchy comes about, or why tributes are paid to the temples of the planetary gods with their personnel of priests, and not yet directly to the ruler as in the purely oriental despotic reign of the Persians from Darius I. What was the origin of the authority of the temples, an authority which was only challenged just before the middle of the first millennium BCE? The reasons for sacrifice, including human sacrifice, to Inanna are not well understood. Riddles: The founders of the advanced culture, known today as the "Sumerians, ...
6. 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 ...
7. The Restoration of Ancient History [Articles]
... by the classical authors in great detail could hardly be verified by the spade. One and a half centuries of excavations, thus, brought as much desperation as it did provide success stories for European scholars. Modern archaeologists, e.g ., dug in vain for the Kat or Khat in Katpatuka/Cappadocia, who kept Medes and Persians on the alert ( -630 to -330), but hit much older and mysterious Khat/Hittites. They dug in vain between Tigris and Euphrates for Mardoi/Amardians of Cyrus the Great but found much older and mysterious Mart(d )u /Amorites. They dug in vain for the breathtaking riches of Assyria as the most ...

... it. And again, The fellies are twelve; the wheel is one; within it are collected 360 [spokes]. A common title for it in India was Beai ohakra. In the neighboring Persia, the Bundehesh, or Cosmogony, in the Pahlavi dialect, of about the 8th or 9th century, a queerly mixed farrago of Persian and Semitic words, mentions our zodiacal divisions as the Twelve Akhtars that lead the army of Ormuzd, while the seven Asvahtars, or planets (including a meteor and a cornet), fight for Aryaman. But the twelve signs of that country, as also those of China and India, were gathered into four great groups marking the ...
9. Did Artaxerxes III Despoil The Temple In Jerusalem? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:2 (Feb 2003) Home | Issue Contents Did Artaxerxes III Despoil The Temple In Jerusalem?Emmet J. Sweeney A fundamental principle of Gunnar Heinsohn's work is that the so-called Neo-Assyrians must be identical to the Persians. Heinsohn was forced to that conclusion for a very simple reason: Mesopotamia could provide little or no archaeology for the two centuries during which it was part of the Achaemenid Empire. Indeed the absence of Persian strata is so complete that some modern scholars, most notably Heleen Sancisi-Weerdenburg of the Netherlands, have come to doubt the very existence of a Persian Empire [1 ]. This Persian disappearing act constitutes more or ...
10. Sargonids and Achaemenids [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney Ramessides, Medes, and Persians Sweeney 81 CHAPTER 6 SARGONIDS AND ACHAEMENIDS The Evidence of Art Having identified Tiglath-Pileser III with Cyrus the Great, it is clear that the late Neo- Assyrian epoch, beginning with Tiglath-Pileser and continuing through the Sargonid dynasty, should display cultural comparisons with the Achaemenid epoch. Can such comparisons be shown to exist? As a matter of fact, the evidence linking the late Neo-Assyrians to the Persians is abundant, and covers virtually every field of knowledge. The achievements of the Sargonids match closely those of the Persians, whilst the religious, artistic, and technological achievements of the Sargonids ...
