51. 'Peoples of the Sea': An Art Historical Perspective [Journals] [SIS Review]
... an Arab Egyptologist of the early twentieth century (Peoples, p.9 ). Hamza definitely ruled out the idea of a Ptolemaic restoration and supported the Ramesside authenticity of the tiles. His attempt, however, to interpret the letters as hieratic signs proved abortive and unwarranted. The Rosettes' For the Egyptologists, the presence of a distinctly Persian rosette motif on the obverse side of the Ramesside tiles added yet another dimension to the problem (Peoples, pp.11 - 12 and plate 2). As Velikovsky points out, this "adds a Persian problem' to the Greek problem' if the tiles were manufactured more than six hundred years before Cambyses subjugated Egypt". ...

53. The Sibylline Oracles [Books]
... could be incorporated en bloc. This, it would seem, was actually the way in which Book III., the earliest of the Jewish Sibyllines, began to take shape. The elements composing it (as it now stands) are as follows :- (1 ) matter from the Babylonian Sibyl and the Alexander-story (? = the Persian Sibyl); (2 ) Hellenic oracles of various dates from the Erythræan collection; (3 ) Jewish oracles from the time of the Maccabees onwards; (4 ) Christian additions and alterations. All these diverse materials are strung together without any recognizable plan or sequence. Those who compiled, enlarged, and edited the collection felt, ...
54. The Autumn Meeting [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... not so much the actual chronology as the means by which it was derived which was discussed. The hard evidence is obtained in the form of strata uncovered in archaeological digs. The historians of ancient Greece wrote that after the emergence of a high culture in Assyria there were three great empires, those of the Ninos-Assyrians, the Medes and the Persians. It would be natural, then, for the excavators of the last century to have expected to find these four strata in ancient Mesopotamia, immediately beneath the Hellenistic stratum. They did indeed find strata in this sequence which indicated highly developed cultures, but on the basis of pen and paper chronologies derived from various different historical interpretations these ...
55. A Reply to Palmer's 'In Search of Alter Egos' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that point to a different conclusion'. Indeed one cannot; but, as I have pointed out before, my reconstruction (as also Heinsohn's) is not based on such a premise. It is, on the contrary, based on the much more powerful dictates of stratigraphy. The simple fact is that in Mesopotamia and elsewhere outside the Persian heartland, there are no substantial Persian remains (contrary to what Palmer has claimed; see my letter on the topic in C&C Workshop 2004:4 , pp. 34-35). In Mesopotamia, the immediate pre-Hellenistic levels habitually produce Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian material. These must then, according to the normal rules of stratigraphy, be ...
56. The Great Kingship of the Medes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney 24 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. V, No. 2 CHAPTER 3 THE GREAT KINGSHIP OF THE MEDES Mitanni and Middle Assyrians The Mitanni folk make their first appearance in history when Parattarna, the son of a man named Shuttarna, succeeded in establishing his control over much of northern Mesopotamia, where he installed client kings with Hurrian names in various cities. It was left, however, for a successor, probably a son, named Shaushtatar, to complete the conquest of the region and establish Mitanni as a world power. Shaushtatar, who would be remembered as the first Great King of Mitanni, won everlasting fame for ...
57. Untitled [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... a coincidence. But applying these same fastidious standards to his own interpretation of the literary sources about Saturn, why should we give them any more credence? Occam's Razor cuts both ways. (3 ) THE CITY OF CLAY TABLET'S The broad consensus of Biblical scholarship maintains that the Hebrew Bible was extensively edited into its final form in the early Persian period. Some scholars such as Richard Friedman of Harvard believe the Redactor, as the chief editor was called, was Ezra the Scribe. The interpolation of place names common in the latter period into the earlier text, complete with occasional clarifying geographical notes, was a common practice on the Redactor's part. One such reference appears to have ...
58. Generalists, Specialists, "Pereset", and Ancient Astronomical Awareness [Journals] [Kronos]
... Jensen: Schrift, p. 69; Doblhofer: Voices in Stone, p. 69- esp. the last). Wescott's suggestion that this feminine ending may have been applied to the Pereset as an "ethnic slur" also seems a little glib. Wescott wishes to see this as a means "to deride the long skirts of Persian archers". Although the fighters depicted in the battle scenes and among the captives are clearly seen to be "clad in light tunics, a few strips of mail, and helmets made of scales" (Peoples of the Sea, p. 34), the archers certainly wore longer skirts and there is no shortage of references among ...
59. Response to Bimson [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Neo-Assyrians and the Hellenists. Removing these gaps, which are not real periods of abandonment but textbook artifacts caused by a faulty chronology, allows the archaeology to conform precisely to the historical sequence outlined by the ancient authors. Thus Akkadians (Empire Assyrians) are followed by Mita(nni) (Medes), who are followed by Neo-Assyrians (Persians), who are followed by Hellenism. Importantly, since the late Ramessides are stratigraphically post-Mitanni and contemporary with the Neo-Assyrians, this makes them also contemporaries of the Persians. Question 2: How does John explain the fact that these Mita, or Mitanni, who worshipped Indo-Iranian gods and conquered the Old Assyrian Empire (of kings named Sargon ...
60. Early History of the Israelite People: Biblical Fundamentalism in History (I) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... See Note 1. At the 40th Rècontre Assyriologique Internationale in Leiden, Holland, I obtained Dr. Thomas L. Thompson's Early History of the Israelite People, (2 ) an erudite historical work. I believe the book gets very close to correctly portraying the problems of Israelite history given that historical narratives of biblical Israel were written in the Persian and Hellenistic periods (3 ) Thus, it is extremely difficult to select the portions of the history which really correspond to the evidence and, therefore, can possibly be matched with the archeological strata in Israel (or "Palestine," in Thompson's terminology). This basic problem is, as one can recognize, aggravated by the ...
