181. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... reign of Sargon II, is debatable and I am reasonably certain that one element of a proper adjustment of the Assyrian' chronology will involve a later ending date for the AKL. This will probably also require movement of some or all of the material now assigned to Sargon II and his successors. One possibility is that these records belong to Persian, Macedonian, or Parthian rulers of Assyria under their Assyrian names. Without attempting to defend or develop the above suggestion, I shall note a line of evidence that seems to compel the movement of Assyrian material closer in time. According to Rees and conventional Assyriologists, Ashurnasirpal II and Shalmaneser III reigned in the 9th century BC. However ...
182. Myths of the Great Fire (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... Earth that he would have burnt it, if he had not been speedily killed by Zeus by means of a thunderbolt. The Stoics and many other ancient philosophers taught that the world was doomed to destruction by fire. In the Old High German poem Muspilli the Great Fire figures prominently. In the Avesta, the Holy Book of the Aryan Persians, we find the story of a great fiery dragon which rose in the south and destroyed everything. It raged for ninety days and nights. Then came a terrible rainstorm followed by a flood. In Firdausi's epic poem Shâh Nâmah, many parts of which are based on early Persian traditions, the fire-bringer is also a serpent-killer. The ...

... Ende der Lagasch-Stufe von Eschnunna stammenden Bronzegriff befanden, waren aus irdischem, nicht meteorischem Eisen gefertigt." This translates as: "Only the remains of a blade which were found in a bronze hilt from the end of the Lagash period at Eshnunna, were manufactured from terrestrial, not from meteoric iron." 8 E.

184. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... been amply demonstrated that this placement of the XIXth Dynasty is not consistent with the archaeological and historical evidence. If Professor Rose believes that it is, then he must show, for example, exactly how the Saïte Pharaohs of the conventional XXVIth Dynasty can be removed from that period, when they are firmly linked to the preceding Ethiopian and following Persian periods (6 ), a task not tackled by Velikovsky. To point to the major difficulties in Ramses II and His Time we do not have to hurriedly write an alternative Theses, although much further work on, and discussion of, the "Glasgow Chronology" will appear as and when it is ready.* [* Anyone ...
185. Greek Debt To Babylonians [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... people have argued (apparently disproved) was the real discoverer of the precession before Hipparchus, and the Greek debt to Kidinnu and his kind. See also Vol. 2, pp. 295ff. for Hipparchus's use of Babylonian records and 335ff for more general borrowings. Another accessible source is A. T. Olmstead: "History of the Persian Empire" (University of Chicago Press, 1948/1970); pp. 195-213 discusses the achievements of Chaldaean astronomers and Greek borrowing; pp. 328-342 the same and especially Democritus.

186. The Stratigraphy of Israel [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... break) and introduce Period 4 pottery (also representing a significant break). I am therefore saying that the Period 4 pottery was in use during the life of the Period 3 buildings but does not appear in the archaeology until the foundations of the Period 4 buildings (resorting to Avigad's reasoning). I have put more strata into the Persian Period which is by far the longest, but my allocation of strata after the Assyrian Period is somewhat arbitrary. On both my own and James' schemes the Period 4 pottery goes with the Assyrians. This then becomes the key to unravelling the Iron Age stratigraphy throughout Northern Israel because the Samaria pottery can be linked to Megiddo, Hazor ...
187. Anno Domini Anomalies [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of Alexander the Great – a human hero that had the aura of a solar hero. He too died, it is said, when he was 33 years of age – from a disease he picked up on his campaign to India and southern Iran. Retrocalculation from AD 1 would see Alexander conquering Syria in 333 BC, defeating a large Persian army. In 332 BC Egypt capitulated and Alexander was welcomed as a hero and introduced into the mysteries of Egyptian religion. In their eyes Alexander was a kind of messianic figure as he lifted from them the Persian yoke and inaugurated what was hoped to be a rebirth of Egypt. This situation was of course a blink of the eye ...
188. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Sinai subplate, the western bar of the Bardawil Lagoon was elevated as a low ridge with certain points, such as Mount Cassius, up to 30 metres above sea level. The marine sediments which were thus elevated were originally laid down about 4000 BC, and the oldest traces of human activity in this area are pot sherds from the Persian Period (incorrectly given as about 700 BC). - It is inferred that the elevation occurred some time between 1500 and 700 BC. At this stage the older coastal route from Egypt went from Qantara, along the southern shores of the Bardawil Lagoon to El-Arish (Rynocorura). - After the elevation, between Persian and Mamluk times ...

... workshop (pictured in a BBC2 Horizon' programme on 23rd Sept. 2004) - such items were probably his bread and butter' line. Demotion of some bullae to fakes may be relevant to the question of whether Str. 10 at Jerusalem is to be identified as that destroyed by Nebuchadrezzar II in 587/6 BC, or a Persian period destruction, perhaps in Nehemiah's time. Two bullae with identical names to biblical characters, which were found in an official excavation, are not in doubt but it is now questionable whether any additional support for the 587/6 BC date can be deduced from other bullae with biblical names and similar scripts. This question of the correct ...
