... nativity was sometimes placed in Thebes; Hercules tended his flocks on Mount Cithaeron, the same desolate pastural highland between Boeotia and Corinth where, the legend has it, the newborn Oedipus, with his feet pierced, was exposed. In later, historical times, Thebes made war on Athens and Sparta. Its people supported the cause of the Persians and fought on their side at Thermopylae ( -480). When one of the Boeotian towns, Plataea, declared its independence, and Athens supported the seceders, the Thebans became bitter enemies of Athens. And when in the ensuing Peloponnesian War Athens surrendered to Sparta ( -404), the Thebans clamored for its destruction. After ...
82. Heinsohn and the Hyksos (An Answer to Martin Sieff) [Journals] [Aeon]
... found myself increasingly drawn to his analytical method. He claims the archaeology of Mesopotamia does not confirm the existence of 10 major pre-Hellenistic empires as the textbooks say it should. Evidence of only five great powers- known in ancient times as Early Chaldeans (Kasdim, Kassites), Assyrians, Late Chaldeans and Medes (ruling simultaneously), and Persians- can be found in the ground. By stretching the available evidence, modern scholars doubled these five empires to 10, thus bringing ancient history into line with Biblical chronology and preserving a cornerstone of western civilisation. Martin and I strongly supported Heinsohn's work on Mesopotamia as well as Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos revisions for Egypt. At first I ...
83. The Two Sargons and Their Successors (Part II) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Ishbi-Erra and not Naplanum? Nabonidus' rival regent is named by Heinsohn as Ugbaru,(92) who is more popularly known as Gobryas. Gobryas, however, was not a regent. He was merely a Babylonian governor who went over to Cyrus' side. It was he who "led his own troops and a part of the Persian army into Babylon."(93) Ishbi-Erra was not guilty of a similar traitorous act. Actually, Nabonidus' regent was his own son, Bel-shar-uzur (the Belshazzar of the Old Testament). Bel-shar-uzur, however, was not a rival since he was set up in Babylon by his own father to look after the realm while ...
84. Peoples of the Sea by Immanuel Velikovsky [Velikovsky]
... a "dark age" of about 500 years, when civilization was virtually extinguished. Velikovsky, however, presents evidence that Ramses III lived 800 years later; that the events in question took place in the first part of the fourth century before the present era; and that the Peoples of the Sea were Greek mercenaries and the Pereset were Persians.

85. Early History of the Israelite People by TL Thompson [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... He goes on to say that prior to the Assyrian empire period and the reign of Sennacherib, Jerusalem was little more than a regional market town. It benefited from the demise of Lachish and due to cooperation with Assyria it grew into a large regional capital of southern Palestine. However, he claims Jerusalem came only to real prominence in the Persian period when, after the Exile, the city was transformed into a centre of a resurgent cult of Yahweh due to the purposeful imperial design of the Persians. Most controversially, and upsetting, Thompson goes so far as to insist that the returning exiles were themselves transportees and largely non-Israelite. He claims transportation and resettlement was practised not only ...
86. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . The temple is part of Strata IC-IB, dated by the authors to the 7th century BC and thought to include the later Assyrian occupation and a succeeding phase of Egyptian domination following Assyrian withdrawal in the late 7th century, and ending with total destruction by Nebuchadnezzar in 603 BC. On a reduced chronology this stratum might be dated to the Persian period, thus requiring the inscription to date from an earlier stratum than IC, which brings us to the all important question of the position of the inscribed limestone block. It was found upside down close to the rear (i .e . innermost) wall of the temple and the authors strongly suggest' that it had fallen from ...
87. Forum [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... late in date and resembles that of either Shoshenq V or VI. The suggestion, therefore, is that Ankh-ef-en-Sekhmet was a contemporary or close predecessor of one of these two kings, who reigned between circa 675 and 620 in the revised scheme and around 735 in the conventional chronology. After Ankh-ef-en-Sekhmet the line of HPM's seems to cease until the Persian epoch with no records found of any individual holding this office. The Egyptologist L.Borchardt, in an attempt to fill this gap, uncovered a short genealogy of HPMs from the Persian era (dated to 489 BC), counting back four generations to a HPM Ankh-ef-en-Sekhmet with the same titles as our HPM of the Berlin genealogy. ...
88. The Pyramid Age, by Emmet J Sweeney (Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of sole rulers of all Egypt. These factors in turn misled subsequent scholars into adopting the very long conventional chronology. (d ) A belief that Heinsohn is correct in his early claims that (i ) Sargon of Akkad ruled at the time of Sargon II and (ii) that the late Neo Assyrians and Babylonians are alter-egos of the Persian rulers. Thus Sargon II is an alter-ego of Darius I (The Great). B. The Revision Herodotus as we know quotes Egyptian early history largely as it was told him by Egyptian priests. He was in no position to query what he was told, nor to ask what happened to the Assyrian invaders and their appointees. ...
89. More Problems with Sothic Dating [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home | Issue Contents More Problems with Sothic Dating Jesse E. Lasken Summary This paper is a follow-up to the paper in C&CR 1999:2 Sothic Dating: the Shameless Enterprise'. Contrary to the assumptions of Sothic dating, as late as the Persian period the Egyptians were actually using a calendar that was 41 days ahead of the calendar Sothic dating posits. Geminus and P. Paris 1 have been misused, and, based on more detailed analysis of the documents. There is also a correction to the earlier explanation given for the matches achieved by Porten using the Sothic dating calendar and ...
90. Hazor and the anachronisms in the chronology of the Ancient Near East [Journals] [SIS Review]
... /Amorites who had ruled the Ancient Near East between 2000 and 1700 BC (two tablets) and in Late Bronze Mitanni/Amarna-period Akkadian dated between the 16th and 14th centuries BC (two more tablets) [4 ]. How did tablets from the early second millennium end up in a stratum reaching its peak in the period of the Persian empire (550 to 330 BC)? Nobody could satisfactorily answer this question. The excavators resorted to the assumption of that they were heirlooms. Thus some strata 1,500 years earlier in Hazor's history would contain the mass of Old-Babylonian tablets from which the few found had mysteriously filtered to the tell's Persian period level. The excavators were ...
