61. Incest. Part 1 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... well known, was in the domain of Assyria, where Arameans, "Hurrians," and "Hittites" occupied parts of the crowded territory. There is reason to believe that this geographical assignment is incorrect and that Mitanni was in northern Iran, where Herodotus in the fifth century before the present era described the people of Matiene: this Persian satrapy was near Mount Ararat.3 Though the geographical position of Mitanni may be a matter of controversy, the religious affiliation of its people is known for certain. The kings of that people prayed to and swore by Mitra, Varuna, Indra, and other Indo-Iranian gods. And this point is important to the matter that I should ...
62. Sweeney responds to Crowe (Letter) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... opinion is expressed on a number of occasions, yet nowhere does he offer any evidence to support it. The reader is just expected to take John's word for it. John bases a large part of his criticism not on the contents of The Pyramid Age (which is barely mentioned) but on another book of mine on the Neo-Assyrians and Persians. Yet even here he has me saying something I didn't - and then criticises me for it! He claims that I have to explain why so many Hebrew and Babylonian texts referring to the growth of the Persian Empire and its eventual conquest of Assyria and Babylonia are simply wrong' and thereby gives the impression that I had denied the ...
63. The Night of the Gods Vol II [Books]
... rose and roue ; rosa and rota (wheel) and Irish roth (wheel) ; Greek po8ov (rose), Portuguese roda (wheel) and Welsh rhod (wheel); with the Sanskrit ratha a wheel-cart, all come from one source. And as for the derivation from the dialect word /dpo8ov and therefore from the ancient Persian vrada and Sanskrit vrad, "" to bend' be flexible," which Littre patronised for rose (but not for roue), I venture to say that it is as wild as anything ever set up by the old snapshot school of All d etymologists. This also gives us, at last, the true key to the ...
64. Sothic Dating: the Shameless Enterprise [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the history of the axiom and summarised the evidence supporting it. He was forced to admit [3 ], There is to my knowledge, no uncontroversial evidence for the consistency of the wandering calendar before 473 BCE. ' Nevertheless, he asserted that the weight of the evidence supports this. Furthermore, he claimed that double-dated documents from the Persian period show that from about 473 onwards, the Sothic hypothesis is not really a hypothesis but simply the truth' [4 ]. Before examining this latter claim in more depth, we should first turn to Theon, a source whom Depuydt and others before him have cited in support of Sothic dating. We shall find that Theon actually ...
65. Philologos | The Legends of the Jews: Volume IV [Books]
... had not first made sure of the loyalty of his capital, was it not dangerous to have these rulers near him in case of an insurrection? For six whole months he celebrated the feast for the grandees the nobles and the high officials, the latter of whom, according to the constitution, were all required to be Medians under the Persian king Ahasuerus, as they would have had to be Persians under a Median king. (7 ) This was the program of the feast: In the first month Ahasuerus showed his treasures to his guests; in the second, the delegates of the king's royal vassals saw them; in the third the presents were exposed to view; ...
66. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 16 of Haremhab, since a text of that year had been found at Amarna. He thought many of the letters were addressed to Haremhab. The letters covered two periods: one of the major Assyrian kings and the other the period of the Canaanite kings. Did a minor catastrophe happen late in the reign of Akhenaten? 2. The Persian Period Strata. A discussion ensued about the absence of Persian Period strata. Emmett Sweeney said he agreed with Gunnar Heinsohn that without the Neo-Assyrians the Persian Period does not exist: they are the same people. The early art of the Neo-Assyrians is identical to early Achaemenid Persian art, both being highly stylised. The Assyrian feathered crown is ...
67. June 15, 762 BCE: A Mathematical Analysis of Ancient History [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... dates were always computed according to the Judeo-Egyptian system. The fact that this dual method of counting years is built into the synchronology from the outset further strengthens its already tightly woven framework. This treatise was limited in its detail to the span of time between the accession of Egyptian King Amenhotep III, the Magnificent, in 905, and the Persian conquest of Egypt in 504. The mathematical analyses of the auxiliary historical periods before 905 and after 504 adhere to all the major tenets of Dr. Velikovsky. In the former period, all synchronisms can be developed with accuracy and precision as far back as 1626, which I feel is the exact year of the Exodus, the Hyksos ...
68. Early History of the Israelite People: Biblical Fundamentalism in History (II) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... between Dan's strata I and II simply has to be taken out of chronology because it was derived from fundamentalism but not from the evidence in situ. This means that stratum II does not end around -700 but lasts until around -300. The conclusion to be drawn is that the stele mentioning the House of David in alphabetic Aramaic belongs to the Persian period. Thompson may not be aware that all Aramaic texts from areas found in territories dated by stratigraphy and Persian-Greek chronology are dated after -520. Only Aramaic texts dated by fundamentalism begin around -900 or earlier. In an article published in Vorzeit-Frühzeit-Gegenwart, I compiled the evidence available on that matter. (8 ) Scholars of Aramaic were always ...
69. Celestial Records of the Orient by Isaac Vail [Books]
... of heaven"! Need I tell my readers where to find such an object? Of course it passed away when the heavens did. According to the Scandinavian account the "bridge of heaven" was broken down in Ragnarok, when Surt the sun-god and his retinue of gods opened the skies and strode the bridge in grand array. The Persian "Bridge of Heaven" is called the "Chinvat Bridge" Or "Bridge of the Judge". the conclusion drawn from these accounts forever sweeps aside the conclusion that this bridge was the rainbow. It was known and named in canopy times when no rainbow could be formed. It lived in the mind of man when the sun ...
70. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , Lachish, several Philistine cities, etc. There is certainly a widespread destruction horizon at these sites. A few Israelis would admit some continuity of Iron IIC pottery through the Babylonian period. Archaeologists working in Jordan have for several years dated the end of Iron IIC about 50 years later at c. 539 BC, the beginning of the Persian period. However, they were puzzled by the lack of archaeology with which to fill the long Persian period. They have now found the solution - Iron Age IIC pottery styles continue well into or possibly right through the Persian Period. This shift of opinion is summarised on pp. 71-72 of B MacDonald's new book Ammon, Moab and ...
