111. Zetetic Scholar Nos. 3 & 4 April 1979 [Articles]
... century, B.C . saw Pharoah Ramses III battle the "sea peoples," barbarians from Greece and the "Pereset," the Philistines from Palestine; instead, the proper time was the fourth century, B.C ., Ramses III was Pharoah Nectanebo I, the "sea peoples" he fought were Greek mercenaries under Persian service, and the "Pereset" were the Persians. 42 Not only does the extant record of fourth century B.C . Greek, Persian, and Egyptian sources correspond quite well to information in the twelfth century B.C . annals of Ramses III, but unmistakable physical evidence also conforms: the palace of Ramses III contained ...
112. The Foundations of the Assyro-Babylonian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the fixing of the Neo-Assyrian chronology was immediately realised [4 ]. It was pointed out that the limmu-list at several points could be linked up with and brought into chronological harmony with the Canon of Ptolemy - a list of kings and their length of reigns beginning with the rule of Nabonassar in Babylon (747-733 BC) through the Babylonian, Persian, Greek and Roman rulers to Antoninus Pius (138-161 AD), a contemporary of Ptolemy. In this way, and not by the aid of the Eponym Canon eclipse, it was first shown that the eponymy of Pur-Sagale fell in the year 763 BC. Prof. Eberhard Schrader, in a work published in 1878, demonstrated this ...
113. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Hyksos pharaohs expelled from Egypt. Emmett said that contradicts what was said of the Hyksos - that they came from the East. Manetho tells the story of Tuthmosis expelling the Shepherds who went towards Syria but stopped in Jerusalem for fear of the Assyrians. Tuthmosis III mentions Assyrians. Nineveh at the time of Akhenaten was controlled by Mitanni who spoke Persian and had Persian gods. They sent a statue of the goddess Ishtar to Akhenaten's father. Mitanni conquered Assyria. Shoshtatar took the gold from Nineveh. Bob said that the stratigraphy of a suburb of Babylon, where German excavators, Coldevai and Reuter found dateable tablets, has Parthians, Seleucid, Persian, neo-Babylonian, Babylonian/neo-Assyrian, ...
114. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... with Alexander the Great. Then Gunnar Heinsohn read an addendum to his Nottingham paper. This proved to be the main item, with Gunnar forcefully reiterating his theory that stratigraphy and not history based on false premises should dictate the chronology. He concentrated on Assyria and Cappadocia. Stratigraphy yields four layers before that of Hellenism at 330 BC: the Persian Empire from -540, the Medish Empire -620, Ninos Assyria -750 and Early Assyria -1150. These hold good in Assyria, Armenia, Cappadocia and the Indus Valley. In reverse order, these are the first empire in the history of man, according to Herodotus, Diodorus etc., rising around -1150 and reaching its peak with King ...
115. The Sea Peoples and the Philistines [Articles]
... starts with the records of Ramesses III of Egypt, and as you will all know Velikovsky has provided a radically different interpretation of this material- he has argued that Ramesses Ill reigned in the 4th rather than the 12th century BC, that the invasion of the so-called "Sea Peoples" in that pharaoh's reign was an abortive attempt of the Persians to recover control over Egypt, and that the Prst or Plst, the main tribe mentioned in Ramesses III's inscriptions, were in fact the Persians rather than the Philistines. Now I won't have time this afternoon to address Velikovsky's ideas on this directly. Those of you who have followed the historical discussions in the SIS Review will know that ...
116. On the Idenrification of Denien with Athenians and the "Double T" in P-R-S-TT [Journals] [Kronos]
... " (and not tj) and was used in the transliteration of Athens in Egyptian. Thus Dr. Velikovsky's identification of Dnyn with "Athenians" is quite plausible. It is based on sound linguistics. Dr. Velikovsky identifies the "P-r-s-tt" [as well as the "P-r-s-t" of Ramses III- Ed.] with the Persians. One "difficulty" with this identification seems to be a "double t" [in later texts, e.g ., the Canopus Degree- Ed.]. In Hebrew there is a possibility whereby the last letter in the alphabet (tov or tav) takes a "dagesh", and this type of " ...
117. Ancient History Revisions: the Last 25 years - a Perspective [Journals] [SIS Review]
... /78). In 1977 and 1978, Velikovsky's last two published volumes in the AIC series appeared: Peoples of the Sea  and Ramses II and His Time . These contained many important examples of archaeological anachronisms, still unexplained today. Peoples of the Sea included much persuasive evidence that Ramesses III ruled during the Persian period. There could hardly be an 800 year gap between the pylon of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu and the almost identical Ptolemaic pylons at Edfu and Kom Ombo - and how did Medinet Habu survive unscathed when Cambyses was reported to have destroyed all the Egyptian temples? The Greek historian Diodorus of Sicily describes in detail a prolonged and unsuccessful ...
118. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... Lunar periods to Solar reckoning, Saturday, which was Sut's day, was converted into Sunday, the day of the Sun. This number thirty signifying thirty years of a celestial period, was assigned to the planet Saturn. The triple phase of the Moon of thirty days connoted by 3X 10 was represented as the three-legged Ass, found in Persian Scriptures, from which many myths of the trinities were created which later became histories. The Ass as a lunar symbol belonged to the night side of myths and manifested great strength in the struggle with Darkness, the enemy of Light. We find the Ass bearing the Sun, which she carries between her two ears, also hauling it ...

... centuries or slightly more. Although much of the material has been presented before in one form or another- especially in the History and Catastrophism Journals from England- one area of research caught me by surprise: James' redating of the later stratigraphy of Lachish. By so doing he has shed new light on the archaeological problems attending the early Persian Period. Centuries of Darkness is divided into 13 major chapters each attempting to deal with a specific problem or area of the ancient Near East. Some of the more prominent chapters concern the Greek Dark Ages; "Redating the Hittite Empire;" "Biblical Archaeology Without Egypt;" "Empty Years in Nubian History" as well as ...
120. The Birth of Vahagn: An Armenian Vision of Celestial Catastrophe? [Journals] [Kronos]
... of Naphtha from the same body.(6 ) The assimilation of Vahagn to the Mazdean Verethraghna supports this identification of Vahagn with Venus, for Verethraghna, in his capacity as patron of fire, is connected with the worship of the flaming naphtha fields of the Apcheron Peninsula (now in Soviet Azerbaidzhan but long in the territory of the ancient Persian Empire). These fields, of course, could be nothing more than the naphtha which Velikovsky believes to have fallen from Venus.(7 ) (All of this would seem to point to Vahagn as being a personification of the planet Venus, an identification possibly further supported by the fact that Lucifer, which means "light-bringer" ...
