... instead of making new works for themselves. Clay, the material on which they were written, was everywhere abundant, copies were multiplied, and by the veneration in which they were held these texts fixed and stereotyped the style of Babylonian literature, and the language in which they were written remained the classical style in the country down to the Persian conquest. Thus it happens that texts of Rimagu, Sargon, and Hammurabi, who were one thousand years before Nebuchadnezzar and Nabonidus, show the same language as the texts of these later kings, there being no sensible difference in style to match the long interval between them. There is, however, reason to believe that, although ...

... .C .) theorized that there must be many worlds 183 of them. More about these 183 worlds was reported by Kleombrotos, one of the persons taking part in the conversation about the obsolescence of oracles, who had received his information from a mysterious "man" who used to meet human beings only once every year near the Persian Gulf, spending "the other days of his life in association with roving nymphs and demigods" (421A). According to Kleombrotos, he placed these worlds on an equilateral triangle, sixty to each side, and one extra at each corner. No further reason is given, but they were so ordered that one always touched another ...

Shem, the third son of Noah, had five sons, who inhabited the land that began at Euphrates, and reached to the Indian Ocean. For Elam left behind him the Elamites, the ancestors of the Persians. Ashur lived at the city Nineve; and named his subjects Assyrians, who became the most fortunate nation, beyond others. Arphaxad named the Arphaxadites, who are now called Chaldeans. Aram had the Aramites, which the Greeks called Syrians; as Laud founded the Laudites, which are now called Lydians. Of the four sons of ...

... . The east-west division was called Decumanus (sc. limes), the north-south division Cardo (hinge). The templum from which Numa descended was originally the area corresponding to that which was cut off, and transferred to the ground. The templum corresponded to the Greek temenos, from temno, cut. Aeschylus, in his play The Persians, refers to the temenos aitheros, or temple of the sky, and the Roman poet Lucretius refers to "coeli templa" [9 ]. The survey of the city and fields may be referred to by Plautus: "Look carefully around you like an augur." [10] Words for the enclosure are curt, in ...

... or falling during dry ones. This is true of the Tigris River and northern parts of the Euphrates. As Hillel shows, the Tigris "cuts into the alluvium to a depth of several meters over most of its course, making it difficult to divert water [for irrigation] from it. Only along its southernmost stretch [near the Persian Gulf] does it rise above the level plain. The Euphrates, because it travels a much greater distance from its sources, loses almost half of its water through evaporation and seepage in the Syrian desert, so it arrives on the southern Mesopotamian plain at a much lower speed. Because of its more sluggish pace and greater load of ...

... the Greek Kronos with Chronos. We find the same situation in India where Kala, one of the names for the planet Saturn, also means "time." [21] As it happens, the Indic Kala, that is Time, is also one of the epithets of the Hindu Yama, [22] the same as the Persian Yima, whose identity as Saturn is also well known. [23] What all this tells us, then, is that Time was simply another name for Saturn. To the Hindus, the "Wheel of Time" is known as the Kala-cakra (or "chakra"). [24] Of importance is the fact that ...

... put forward with any degree of confidence. I agree with Dr. Courville that at least some of the later dynasties must run in parallel with Dynasties XXV and XXVI. I differ from him, however, in not being prepared (at least for the present) to discount the possibility that Dynasties XXII and XXIII may have extended into the Persian period (524-404 B.C .) and even into the final brief period of independence in the 4th century B.C . I must emphasize that this is at present only a hypothesis, which after further study may have to be discarded. Nevertheless, it is one which I am actively pursuing because I believe it merits further ...

... ages differs from people to people and from tradition to tradition. The difference depends on the number of catastrophes that the particular people retained in its memory, or on the way it reckoned the end of an age." 39 Lewis M. Greenberg pointed out that Velikovsky "acknowledged that there was a tradition of seven ages (Etruscan, Persian, sacred Hindu and Hebrew writings), ten ages (Chinese), and nine ages (Polynesian and Iceland) as well, while carefully pointing out that the number of years ascribed to various ages differed, (W in C. pp. 30-33). Nothing was hidden."40 Sagan's remarks to the contrary that, ...

... called the "tree of all seeds", and all trees came from it. It was the "father of trees". It was a life- giving tree, and he who partook of its fruit became deathless, just as the tree of the biblical Eden. It grew", says a well- known scholar, "in the Persian Eden, at the source of all waters", but the source of all waters was heaven's vapor canopy. It is further stated that the White Haoma tree was "encircled with a starry girdle", Grill tells us this tree is connected with the "Bridge of Heaven", but this bridge is plainly the vapor canopy, ...

(70) That the identification of Verethragna and Mars goes back to still more ancient times was maintained by B. L. van der Waerden (who cites the Persian scholar Duchesne-Guillemin): "The identification of the planets with great gods must be a relict from an earlier period...As we have seen, the identification of planets with gods is fundamental for horoscopic astrology.
