171. Expanding the End of Assyrian History [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... until 627/6 .( 2 ) When we would take the years attributed by the sources to the successors of Assurbanipal at face value too, Nineveh would have fallen several years after 612. But dating the end of the Assyrian empire lower would clearly cause much trouble in the chronology of the following empires of Chaldaeans, Medes, and Persians. It seems natural to look for a new absolutely fixed starting point in the 6th or even 5th century in order to date back all the events before it, instead of dating from 763 in our direction. This new system would not be without importance for Egyptian history, too. Some years ago I made some calculations starting from ...
172. Velikovsky, Fundamentalism and the Revised Chronology [Journals] [Aeon]
... ) should really be translated "king shepherds," and used as evidence that the Amalekites were the Hyksos. Gordon called Velikovsky's idea "a brilliant emendation," but expressed strong doubts about the overall accuracy of his revised chronology. First, he questioned Velikovsky's identification of the "Prst," who fought against Ramses m, as the Persians. Gordon supported the accepted view that the "Prst" were Philistines. "The distinctive Prst' helmet is pictured on the Phaistos disk from Crete," he said. The disk is conventionally dated to the 2nd millennium BCE. "But there are larger issues. You have to understand that Velikovsky has a particular vision of the ...
173. The Background to 'Ramses II and His Time' [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... relationships among the last four rulers are confused and the subject of considerable dispute. Sethos II is generally regarded as the son of Merenptah, but it is not clear what was his relationship to Amenmesse or which of the two was the father of Siptah. Dynasty XXVI is assigned to the period between the Assyrian invasions of 671-63 BC and the Persian conquest of Egypt in 525 BC. They are placed in the following order: J. PSAMMETICHUS I (Wahibre' Psamtek) 664-610 K. NECHO II (Wehimibre' Neko) 610-595 L. PSAMMETICHUS II (Neferibre' Psamtek) 595-589 M. APRIES (Ha'aibre Wahibre) 589-570 N.

174. Solomon's Temple: An Astronomical Observatory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of Cyrus H. Gordon's claim that the Paraiba inscription of Brazil is genuine. This inscription, which Gordon calls Canaanite, purports to be the account of a group of Sidonians who left the port of Ezion-Geber on the Gulf of Aqaba during the reign of Hiram III of Tyre. At this time Hiram III was a puppet king of the Persian, Cyrus the Great; he also supplied materials for the construction of Jerusalem's second temple. At any rate, the Sidonians rounded South Africa as a whole flotilla, but one ship- either by orders or because of a storm at sea- was separated from the rest and landed in Brazil, where the inscription was prepared. It ...
175. "Let There be Light" [Journals] [Kronos]
... El with the Latin Saturnus.(11) We therefore ask: What did the planet Saturn have to do with the Creation of the world? Al-Biruni, an Arabian scholar of the 11th century A.D ., tells us: "On the 6th day of Farwardin, the day Khurdadh, is the great Nauroz, for the Persians a feast of great importance. On this day- they say- God finished the creation, for it is the last of the six days . . . On this day God created Saturn . . ." (Emphasis added).(12) This belief of the Persians, as described by Al-Biruni, finds other parallels among ...
176. Ramses II and his Time by Immanuel Velikovsky [Velikovsky]
... Museum, Mr. Etienne Drioton, wrote to the author: "You certainly overturn- and with what zest!-many of our historical assumptions which we have considered established. But you do it with total absence of prejudice and with impartial and complete documentation, all of which is most sympathetic." Peoples of the Sea, covering the Persian domination of Egypt and the conquest by Alexander, was published in 1977 and caused much discussion among Egyptologists. Dr. David Lorton, research fellow in Egyptology at Johns Hopkins University, wrote: "I can testify that anyone wishing to attack it will have a very difficult job." Now the series is enriched by a volume of ...

178. Site Stratification: is it a Sound Methodology? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... what Petrie claimed was a 1st Dynasty context [3 ]. While I did not offer a specific date for the tombs at Abydos, by my chronology they would have to be dated after c. 1700 BC. In fact, these tombs are probably much later than that. They probably date as late as the Saite or even the Persian or Ptolemaic periods. In addition, and to be somewhat more precise, as a corollary to what I presented in Discussions in Egyptology, the flood mentioned in the Sumerian king lists and in other Sumerian material dated to c.1700 BC. Without going into a discussion here, let me simply note that this would suggest that the ...

In Thesis for the Reconstruction of Ancient History , Velikovsky claims that the peoples of the sea' whom the Pharaoh Rameses III defeated and who are depicted with a distinctive plumed helmet in his temple at Medinet Habu, and who are called Pistor Prst are not true Philistines (of the 12th century BC) as is generally accepted, ...
180. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... were correctly assigned, then the Mittani and Medes would prove to be the same people and the great kings Aziru the Martu and Cyrus the Mardian one and the same person. Both kings rose to power at the end of the Mitannian and Median empires respectively, firstly assisting against rebellious nations and then taking over to found the Middle Assyrian and Persian empires respectively. However, despite the detailed history of the Median and Persian empires given by the Greeks, there appear to be no physical traces, making Alexander's conquests of little significance. However, the extent of the Mitannian empire deduced from cuneiform texts of the Amarna period is very similar to that of the fabled Median empire. The ...
