... the general account is, that Heracles marched against them and brought the girdle of their queen Hippolyte into Greece; and that the Athenians under Theseus were the first to conquer and repulse these women as they were advancing into Europe. The battle of the Athenians and Amazons has been painted by Micon, no less than that of the Athenians and Persians. Herodotus also has frequently written about these women; and so have the Athenian writers who have honored the men who perished in war with orations. They have mentioned the exploit of the Athenians against the Amazons as one of their special glories. If therefore Atropates showed any equestrian women to Alexander, I think he must have shown him ...

... noticed that Greek and Roman astrology associated Saturn with the celestial pole, (13) but the idea of a general tradition seems to have been missed by the experts, until the revelations of Leopold de Saussure It was de Saussure who, examining the strange connection of Saturn and the pole in China, discovered that the same associations occurred in Persian astrology and were implied by the earliest planet lists of the Babylonians. (14) When Saturn ruled the world the god stood at the celestial pole. Whatever one may think of this aspect of the myth, the tradition itself is incontrovertible. "What has Saturn, the far-out planet to do with the Pole?" wondered de ...

... they might have stumbled over Kala, i.e ., Chronos, as a name of Yama, i.e ., Kronos, alias the planet Saturn. (13) That Time (Kala) was a name of Yama can also be learned from Burgess; (14) that the Hindu Yama, the same as the Persian Yima, was Saturn can be learned from Collitz. (15) So that this, also, is the same as saying that Time was another name for Saturn. To the Hindus, the "Wheel of Time" is known as the Kala-cakra (or "chakra"). (16) Of importance to us is the ...

... the like. This omen astrology had what appeared to be a point in time at which they were transferring this sort of information from Persia, Babylon, into Egypt. Parker also notes that in the reign of Darius which also brings us back to about 500 BC, we do know that a certain Egyptian living at the court of the Persian empire was directed to go back to Egypt to reorganise the houses of life, i.e . the depositories of scientific knowledge, if you like. It would fit in very well with the idea that a man who knew both cultures might have drawn up documents to pass this knowledge across. It's some sort of argument, anyway ...

455. Thoth Vol II, No. 20: Dec 31, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... . (The fact that the artists depicted Venus and other planets as SPHERES is no small matter either, since it is flatly impossible to detect the sphericity of a planet in today's sky.) A counterpart to the Mesopotamian image will be the Hebrew Shekinah, called the "indwelling," the feminine "Glory" of God. The Persian Zend Avesta speaks of the "awful Kingly Glory" (_ Kavaem Hvareno_) which "clave unto the bright Yima" during the Golden Age. As we have noted elsewhere, Yima is to be identified with the planet Saturn. According to Avestan tradition, the Glory departed from Yima with the end of the Golden Age, ...

... dubious are Herodotus' reports on Solon having met Philocyprus on Cyprus and Croesus, because the latter, for example, is believed to have ruled not before 560 B.C . (17) It is true that Herodotus gives one date according to an Athenean archon: in his eight book (VIII 51). Herodotus holds that the Persian invasion under Xerxes corresponded with the year in which Calliades was the archon of Athens. This year (480 B.C .) is the only reliable date traceable in the entire work of Herodotus. However, Herodotus by no means was ever capable of having known the absolute date of this invasion, for he was completely unaware of ...

... or falling during the 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 metres 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 own 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 ...

... eastern England, providing land for the newcomers (Frisians and Angles etc.). It depopulated northern France. The Franks encouraged Saxons from Kent and Sussex to settle in Belgium and NE France, while the west coastal zone was settled by surviving Romano-British from the SW (Cornwall to Hampshire). The effects of plague also explain why the Persian and Byzantine empires succumbed so quickly to the eruption of desert tribesmen in 634. In India, the powerful Gupta age came to a sudden end around 550. In China the early Han dynasty ended in the 3rd century (an epidemic is recorded). The late Han period flourished until the 6th century, when it is said to ...

... results from military conquest, population explosion, or literary prestige. As far as is known, however, the Arameans were themselves a relatively minor group of pastoral nomads. At the time of the overthrow of the Assyrian and Babylonian empires, a well-informed linguistic prognosticator would probably have predicted that their imperial language, Akkadian, would be superseded by Persian or perhaps by Greek but hardly by any of the West Semitic vernaculars. An anomaly of control, finally, is provided by local weather, concerning which we now have a wealth of information but which we can scarcely even forecast, much less manipulate with any assurance of even minimal success. The trouble with this typology, of course ...
