41. EARLY GLASSMAKING AND CHRONOLOGICAL PUZZLES [Journals] [Aeon]
... level IV already had to be described as "on the way to Archaemenid Iranian ware."(44) This proto-Achaemenid ware even would make a lot of sense as full-clad Achaemenid ware with Hellenistic ware found in level IIIA. From the stratigraphic point of view, thus, one would date level IV with its inlaid glass beakers in the Persian period of the 5th or 4th century B.C .E . This is also indicated by the famous Iranian Ibex (wild goat) motive shown not only on the beakers but also on other objects from Hasanlu IV.(45) Hasanlu's Achaemenid outlook does not pose the only problem in bridging Egypt's glass gap by use of supposedly ...
... Antiquities of the Jews - Book XI CONTAINING THE INTERVAL OF TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY-THREE YEARS AND FIVE MONTHS. FROM THE FIRST OF CYRUS TO THE DEATH OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT.CHAPTER 1.HOW CYRUS, KING OF THE PERSIANS, DELIVERED THE JEWS OUT OF BABYLON AND SUFFERED THEM TO RETURN TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY AND TO BUILD THEIR TEMPLE, FOR WHICH WORK HE GAVE THEM MONEY. 1. IN the first year of the reign of Cyrus (1 ) which was the seventieth from the day that our people were removed out of their own land into Babylon, God commiserated the captivity and calamity of these poor people, according as he had foretold to them by Jeremiah ...
43. Letters to C&C Workshop 2004:4 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the true king at the time of the capture of Babylon; Belshazzar being nothing but a co-regent. Eric Aitchison, Lambton North, Australia Dear Reader Although Clark Whelton has already answered the most erroneous parts of Trevor Palmer's Test of Beards' paper (C &CR 2004:1 ), I feel latter's statement that there is abundant' Persian age material in Babylon needs further comment. Where Trevor got the word abundant' from is beyond me. Archaeologists are struck, not by the abundance of Persian material in the city, but by its scarcity. Thus, in the CAH, A. Kuhrt, one of the most experienced archaeologists in the field, remarked on how ...
44. In Search of <i>Alter Egos</i> [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , Cyrus, unlike Tiglath-pileser III, also conquered Lydia, which at the time stretched over a large part of Anatolia. It is true that Sweeney equates the Lydians with the Hittites, who were subjected to attacks by Tiglath-pileser III in Syria, but there is a great deal of difference between fighting in Syria and conquering Anatolia, as the Persians undoubtedly did. Furthermore, Tiglath-pileser ruled in total for 17 years, becoming king of Babylon two years before his death, whereas Cyrus reigned for 29 years, his conquest of Babylon coming 9 years before he was killed fighting the Sakas of central Asia, far beyond the range of activity of Tiglath-pileser [2 ]. Of their respective ...
... are in his hand also."2 Guided by the appearance of the royal figures approaching each other and by that of their attendants, the quoted scholar thought that the bas-relief depicted the conclusion of an armistice after the great battle fought by Croesus and Cyrus in about-550 somewhere nearby.3 One group wears Phrygian caps, the other Persian tiaras. Another early scholar,4 investigating the ruins of Boghazkoi. and the rock bas-relief of Yazilikaya, interpreted the figures on the rock as those of Lydians and Medes. Cyaxares, king of Media, who together with Nabopolassar conquered Nineveh, later became involved in a five years' war with Alyattes, the Lydian king, father ...
46. The Garden of Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... greatest goddess of the ancient Iranians was known as Anahita. Alternately described as a warrior, agent of fertility, and granter of glory or "strength" to heroes, Anahita was truly a goddess for all seasons. Her intimate association with kingship made the goddess a permanent fixture of investiture rituals. [1 ] Under the auspices of the Persian empire, Anahita's cult became disseminated across much of Asia Minor. [2 ] The most complete description of the goddess is that found in the fifth Yasht of the Avesta, the sacred book of the Iranians. There Anahita is made the source of a fabulous celestial spring from whence originated the world's waters. "1 . Ahura Mazda ...
47. The Stratigraphical Chronology of Ancient Israel [Journals] [Aeon]
... dated after 610. (14) This fine ceramic ware was even dug up in Hellenistic burials. (15) Stratigraphically, the Sargonid remains immediately precede the Hellenistic ones of the 4th/3rd century without any recognizable hiatus whatsoever (e .g ., at Hama (16) and Nimrud/Calah (17) ). The Persian period, therefore, seems to provide a more convincing environment for these powerful kings. (18) The impressive achievements of nearly 150 years of modern archaeology in the ancient Near East seem to have debunked Israel's biblical history from Abraham to the Babylonian Exile, which likewise is burdened with some big question marks (see Section II below) ...
48. In the Days of Seti I and Ramses II [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney 42 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. V, No. 2 CHAPTER 4 IN THE DAYS OF SETI I AND RAMSES II The End of the Theban Dynasty Whilst the fall of Egypt's mighty 18th Dynasty in the chaotic events that followed the reign of Akhnaton is normally regarded as traumatic, it is not normally regarded as a violent episode. Yet, abundant evidence exists to show that the extinction of Akhnaton's line was far from peaceful, and that civil war as well as foreign invasion marked the age. The decline of the 18th Dynasty was the subject of one of Velikovsky's most fascinating and insightful books, Oedipus and Akhnaton ( ...
49. Peoples of the Sea: An Art Historical Perspective ... [Journals] [Kronos]
... III's palace. It is a crux which, to the best of my knowledge, defies conventional explanation. pp. 12-17: It is at least possible that the cemetery was used over a long period of time, if one adheres to the conventional chronology. pp. 21-28: The identification of "Irsu" of Papyrus Harris with the Persian satrap or king is ingenious and can fit the precious few facts we have from the Egyptian record; it would be useful to check Albright's Vocalisation of the Egyptian Syllabic Orthography and to consider the possible vocalisations of the Egyptian spelling, especially if a choice is to be made between Arsa (the satrap) and Arsu (the king) ...
50. The Israelite Conquest of Canaan [Journals] [Aeon]
... Archaeological sites in the land of Israel, exhibiting some of the finest stratigraphies in the world, were expected to yield four major groups of strata following the Chalcolithic and prior to the Hellenistic Age: for the period of (i ) the Canaanites, (ii) the Israelites, (iii) the Assyrians, and (iv) the Persians. Surprisingly, though, all these four periods are either lacking in unambiguous layers or strata assigned to them, or are too few to cover the centuries over which these eras are believed to have lasted. The surprise did not end there: Where the nations known from written sources left no undisputed traces, three rich strata groups on ...
