months after the following chapters
The Trojan-producing Dionysus (leading to the Lato-Roman dragon) should not be viewed as his mother, Semele, coming from Ethiopia as the Samaali, but rather as the (proto-)Samaali still living in Phoenicia (i.e. who had not yet gone into Ethiopia). The Samaali wave that did come from Ethiopia to the Troy theater and beyond -- to the French and American Freemasons -- occurred much later, at about the time that the Trojan war was taking place. In other words, there is a distinction to be made between the Trojo-Roman dragon and the western Illuminati cult, a distinction on par with the Roman-versus-Celt conflicts, dragon versus dragon.
Expecting Dionysus to be at the Litani river, I wondered where I could find evidence for Semele's identity there, and remembered my trace of Dionysus (as Bacchus) from the Azerbaijan region of Baku/Bakukh, to the Beqaa/Bekaa valley through which the Litani flows!!
This was not like winning a lottery, but more like the lottery company. In this picture, the reason that Bacchus was equated with Dionysus, even though Dionysus proper came from Ethiopia, is that Bacchus and Dionysus became allies in the Beqaa valley.
As Cassiopeia was married to Ethiopia (as mythical wife of Cepheus, king of Ethiopia), one may suspect that Semele was within Cassiopeia. When myth located Cassiopeia's offspring in Joppa (northern Israel), it called them "Andromeda ("men of Media"?); Kassites were indeed from Media. Hurrians are said to be from Kassites, and Hurrians are known to have founded Nuzi under that name, wherefore, if indeed Dionysus denotes Nuzi, his role as Bacchus in the Bekaa valley should with some plausibility be Cassiopeia, or at least an ally of Cassiopeia.
The appearance of Cassiopeia in pre-Israel implies the Kassite alliance with Hebrews, though not Israeli Hebrews. When Kassites came forth from Iran, into Chaldea, they were allied with the "Habira" peoples, known to have become one of the Kassite tribes. This may have something to do with Cassiopeia Kassites ending up in pre-Israel. I suspect strongly that she depicted the Opis-on-the-Tigris inhabitants (I identify them as Avvites) removed to the Gath and Gaza region, where the Bible locates the "Avviy." Joppa to the north of Gath evokes Opis somewhat, as well as "Avviy" (= Avvites). I would of course identify the "opeia" in "Cassiopeia" as Opis on the Tigris. Same applies to the "opia" of "Ethiopia," and the "ops" of "Merops," mythical king of Ethiopia.
As I had satisfied myself (in other ways) that the Ethiopians of Greek myth were Avvites, it could now seem apparent that Cassiopeia extended into Africa to form Ethiopian Punt in the first place. As I have identified the fellow-peoples of Cassiopeia as Edones, Ethiopia may have been named after them. Dionysus definitely leads to Edones, for Dionysus was on the Hebros river as the historical Odrysian kingdom, depicted by mythical Dryas, father of a king of the Edones.
As I have identified Dryas as the Dorians from Dor of pre-Israel (between Joppa and Tyre), I would now identify Dorians as a Dionysus bloodline. Plus, as this chapter shows sufficient evidence to root Trojans to Phoenicia, my theory that Dryas depicted Troy elements now seems crucial, especially as I've rooted both Dor and Tyre/Tyrus to the same Taurus cult.
It's enlightening that Trojans in this chapter are half Athenians, which then adds to the evidence that Edones were Athenians in some way, perhaps even the founders of Athens, an idea that sits well with me where I identified Hephaestus (known to become an Athenian peoples) as the Edones. As I identified "Cepheus" as Hephaestus, Cepheus, and therefore Ethiopia, should prove to depict an Edone branch. You recall that I identify Sidon with the Sitone branch of Edones; wouldn't that square with Tyre and Sidon together being identified with Edones? In this picture, Phoenicians are not only identified as Edones, but Edones from Ethiopia!!
Yet, what I am about to do is to trace Dionysus to the Edono-Athenians and Trojans in the first place, who must have been the ones that first settled Ethiopia before the Poseido-Phoenix line came back to form Phoenicians and Franko-American Freemasons). The Edones in pre-Phoenicia who did not go to Ethiopia (e.g. Sidon) may be included in the Phoenician make-up, though it is expected that they had become Canaanized by the time that the Phoenix line returned. I can now identify the pre-Phoenix Edones as proto-Abas, Avvites from Opis on the Tigris who went first to Greece and then into Ethiopia as per the myth concerning Io the Taurus cult. It is extremely conspicuous that, in myth, Io founded Bosphorus on her way to Africa, which was at Byzantium in what was the Bithynian region.
There is sufficient evidence alone in Cassiopeia's situation on the pre-Israeli coast to postulate a Cassiopeia-Khassi equation. That is, I suspect Cassiopeia Kassites to be the namers of Kizzuwatna. Asking myself what the "watna" part of the term might represent, I searched the list of places in the book of Joshua for a "Batna," or something close to it, and thought "Bashan" was interesting. Upon inspection, I found that, "After the Exile [of Judah], Bashan was divided into four districts," one being "Batanaea, now Ard-el-Bathanyeh..."
Zowzers, I had been hoping to find a "t" alternative of the "sh" in "Bashan," and there it was: Batanaea. This is why I say that Byzantium and Bithynia are conspicuous. If there is a connection, then Io was related to Bashan. Whether or not "Bacchus" is a related term has yet to be determined, but as I have trace it to AzerBaijan, I now recall that "bacchus" could be "vacca," the Latin for cow! Compare "bison" with "Bashan" (the meaning/derivation of the latter term not known by Strong's Concordance).
In the Bible, Bashan is on the south-eastern side of mount Hermon, while Bekaa valley is on the opposite side. Bashan is the home of "giant" peoples whom Joshua defeated to give Israel a foothold in the Promised Land. Og, king of Bashan, ruled also at Hermon at the time (Joshua 12:4). In Genesis 13, we learn that Lot, some 400 years before Joshua, had split up from Abraham to the Sodom area, a region filled with Anakites; eventually Lot's Ammonite tribe reached north to the border of Bashan. The 13-foot bed of Og was in a town (Rabbah) that was eventually an Ammonite domain (Deuteronomy 3:11). What I mean to suggest, as a possibility, is that the Lotan dragon may have included Ammonite-based giants from Bashan. Perhaps Bashan was the Anunnaki part of Cassiopeia, for in fact Anunnaki trace to Kassites. In this light, "Kizzu-watna" is made up of two Kassite terms...if indeed the "watna" part denotes Bashan elements. The following discussion is valid and meaningful even if "watna" has no connection with Bashan or the other batan-like terms.
I thought per chance that Batanaea=Bashan, when migrated to the Lydian theater, came to be depicted by mythical Batea, the daughter of Teucer who married Dardanus to produce the Trojans. I then found it very interesting that on one border of Batanaea there was Trachonitis -- the Trachones of Strabo -- for this could have been the origin of Thrace...especially if Batanaea was indeed depicted by Batea. Trachonitis was between the Sea of Galilee and Damascus, and therefore close enough to the Litani river to finally explain (something I had long been keeping an eye out for) how Troy/Tros could have been an extension of Tyre/Tyros.
After I wrote the above, I found an amazing thing when seeking the location of Trachonitis. Knowing by then that the Yervand dynasty was "Orontes" in Greek, and that I had traced the dragon cult to that very dynasty, I feasted my eyes on this:
"The Orontes or ĎAsi is a river of Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. It was anciently the chief river of the Levant, also called Draco, Typhon and Axius..."
Draco. Unbelievable. I don't know if the term connects with Trachonitis, though quite likely. It's exactly the ancient "Thraco." The "Typhon" term is no less important. Typhon's wife, Echidna, would appear to be within the Cadusii-family of terms, and as per my identifying the Cadusii cult at mount Hermon as one from Sophene, which I then traced out of the Litani region for Lotan-infested Saphon, how could "Typhon" not depict the same people en route to Saphon? Are not all these similar terms the reason for which "Daphne" was created by myth writers? Surely.
The implication is that the Hermon cult went up the Litani as far as it went, then hopped over to the source of the Typhon/Draco, and from its mouth in Syria the cult removed to Lydia. In fact, I can determine that river was named Draco by the first Cadusii wave to Trojo-Greece, the one that saw Cadmus mesh with the Ares-Harmonia dragon (Ares was god in Thrace), while the second Cadusii wave to Lydia, that of Daphne, named the river Typhon.
This is a stunning piece of evidence showing that, with much grappling, mythology can be used correctly first by historians to uncover the realities of certain migrational routes, and secondly by prophecy students for uncovering the Biblical dragon. Daphne, the sweetheart of mythology, is the Biblical dragon responsible for the heist and enslavement of humanity. Diabolical rulers seeking to conquer peoples in order to make them their tax-paying machines, and to work the machines as hard as possible without cracking them under the hard pressures. The dragon cult must have passed-on this mentality from generation to generation, that it had the right to rule, that it's members should accept nothing short of securing ruling positions, with the world under them as their exploited servant. Jesus was exactly right when he said that the Gentiles seek to rule over others, but we are not to be like that, for the first will be made last, and the last will be made first.
As added evidence that the Orontes river belonged to Armenians, it was also called the Asi, evoking the Azzi Armenians. The article continues:
"The Orontes rises in the great springs of Labweh [Luwian?] on the east side of the Bekaa valley, very near the fountains of the southward-flowing Litani...Passing north of the modern Antakya (ancient Antioch) the Orontes plunges southwest..."
As you can see, the Orontes stretches from near the sources of the Litani, across the Bekaa valley to Antioch, so that one can, along both rivers, follow a route that is the/my picture drawn above, wherein Idrimi took the Litani cult to Alalakh (same as Daphne going to Saphon), for Alalakh is very near Antioch. Then to my amazement I found this: "Antioch was a city of great religious importance...its suburb, Daphnus, was held to be the very place where Daphne was turned into a laurel tree to escape the affections of Apollo."
There we have it. Not only do we have the locations of Sophene, Typhon and Saphon along the dragon tracks to Thraco, but a suburb called Daphnus itself (I'm so happy to report that I'm not crazy after all). If you think I'm a little wild for identifying Greek-myth terms, ordinarily confined by others to Greek geography, with places far-removed from Greece, how do we explain that one writer located Daphne of the Ladon river, Arcadia, to Syria? Does someone else know about the Lotan>Ladon migration now under discussion? Does someone else know that Daphne was related to this Lotan-infested part of Syria? Yes, the myth writer.
True, the writer had Daphne going the other way around, from the Ladon river (where Apollo tried to become her ally), to Syria, but this could be code for a certain portion of the Daphne Greeks escaping to their old stomping grounds. It can be deduced from other myths that the other portion of Daphne, remaining in Greece, became mixed with the Apollo peoples. This alliance was proto-Avalon, and if I'm correct in tying Avalon to Apollo, then the Avalon cult is more in honor of the Apollo side that the Daphne side. I have identified Apollo as far-north Russia peoples from the start of this book, but only recently did I peg them as Mysians...independent of my other conclusion, that Avalon was the home of the Muses = Mysians.
The Avalon-Apollo equation may then align nicely with my view of Arthur distinctly as a Rus peoples. In turn, this aligns also with my suspicion of many years ago, that the end-time False Prophet would be of the same peoples as of the end-time anti-Christ (only on the basis of the two meshing their powers in the last days); I identified the anti-Christ as a Russian after 15 years of intense study on Biblical prophecy. I'm just giving you the reasons by which my work can be trusted, for I can see that readers could easily pass it off as imaginary fancy.
I kid you not, it was after writing the above on Daphnus, while searching for a good ancient map of Israel for you, that I found another city of Daphne, within a slugger's home run from Paneas!!! See southern end of mount Hermon on this click-to-expand semi-ancient map of Israel. The Litani is shown, north of Tyre, and flowing from Iturea. The Litani region is herein stamped "Abilene," after the ancient city of Abila (also shown), and I would ask if this was an arm of Apollo (and if it wasn't the root of Avalon)? That is, could a portion of peoples depicted by Apollo have come to this region when the writer above had Daphne escaping Apollo to Antioch of Syria? That makes much sense. In fact, Zondervan (map 31) has the Phoenician city of Daphne stamped, "Antiochia," which picture is identical to the Daphnus suberb of Syria's Antioch.
See that Daphne in Greece went to live among the Opunti, for Locrians "south of this town [Daphnus] were named Opuntii, from Opus, their principal city." Coincidence? Remember, the Opuntians were Locrians, and I have traced American Freemasons to Locrians.
The article goes on to say that "On the Orontes was fought the Battle of Kadesh during the reign of Ramesses II..." I just wish to point out that "Kadesh" and "Cadusia" are a near match. I didn't know where this particular Kadesh (there are others) was located in relation to the Litani, and upon seeking, I found what clinches (not to my surprise, but perhaps to yours) my Hermes-Cadusii equation:"...Kadesh in the region Biblically referred to as Mount Hermon." Zowzers mamma!
I'm far from genius-hood; I have merely understood how myth symbols can be used to track peoples that are the objects of the myths. I see in Zondervan's Bible Atlas (map 30) that there is a (another?) Kadesh about 20 miles south-west of Hermon, which is also called "Cadasa" (map 31). There is yet another Kadesh, "an ancient city of the Levant, located on the Orontes River." This is the one where the Battle of Kadesh occurred, where the Kadesh peoples became allied to the Asian Hittites (webpage below) in what I would interpret as the Tantalus period.
I understand further that Kadesh at Hermon is super evidence for Cadmus depicting the dragon of this region. As Cadmus carried Semele to Lydia, it is also understood that the Samaali stock was in the Hermon region. My suspicion is that the Samaali were at Hermon with the Samson-depicted Daniy. It could appear that the Samaali named the Egyptian city of Samalut (in the Minya region of the Nile), but because it was also called Samannud, it seems to be a variant of "Tmoone," a city immediately north of Minya. Therefore, I'm assuming that Biblical Timnah (in the Gath-Gaza region), which was made married to Samson, was named by/after the Samaali peoples of Tmoone, when they moved to pre-Israel.
Samson's name suggest that he depicted the Samaali, but a distinction needs to be made if the Samaali were Tabali. Samson would then depict Sames and/or Samosata elements, allied with a Tabala branch returning from Africa as "Tmoone/Timnah. Timnah (a few miles north-east of Gath) is on the Zondervan map only about 25 miles from south-west of Joppa, she could in fact have been incorporated by the domain of Cassiopeia.
Now behold, for I have found the city that Samson was named after. I had reasoned that his name corresponded to the "Sames," which term was an alternative of "Shamash," wherefore can it be a coincidence that Joshua 15:10 places a certain "Beth Shemesh" smack beside Timnah??? See how close they are, where you see "Timnath" on this map of ancient Israel.
Immediately after the Samson myth, a story begins, telling of Samson's Daniy seizing the city of Laish (afterward called Dan)...which happens to be smack on, or within a couple of miles, of Panias at Hermon!! What has me even more certain that this Timnah-Daniy migration to Herman included Semele is that, months ago, I had independently traced Laish to Dionysus...and then to the Laus Deo written on the Washington Monument (details in coming chapters).
It can be determined that the Laish peoples, identified in the Biblical text as Sidonians, were of Ceto (if I'm correct with the Ceto-Edone equation), in which case Samson fits the shoe of the Cassiopeia stock because the Daniy warred with and defeated Laish, just as Ceto was defeated, in myth, by the Cassiopeia-Perseus alliance. Keep in mind that Perseus was a Danaan! In other words, Perseus and Samson would appear to be the same peoples, especially as Hercules was a son of Perseus (Hercules' mother was granddaughter of Perseus). That is, if we equate Samson with Hercules, then we can also equate Samson with Perseus. What this effectively does is to reveal Perseus as a Shamash people group.
I have already explained that the Danaans in the immediate family of Hercules, especially his mother, Alcmene, and her father, Electryon (there were other such terms), were from the Alkyonide giants, which may then mesh with the giants of Bashan. But there were also giants in the Timnah region, and in fact they are identified as sons of Anak, patriarch on the Anakites (Numbers 13:22). The brother of Electryon was Alcaeus, and they both were brothers to Gorgophone, daughter of Perseus and Andromeda at Joppa! Therefore, as one can see, the Alky family of Hercules was from Cassiopeia and Cepheus on the one side, but on the other side that is not as easy to see, it was Samson.
This is the very scripture text in which we find that a certain Talmai was an Anakite, whose name evokes the Dilmun/Telmun that was home to Ishtar. We also find Zoan mentioned in this same verse, what was Tanis on the Nile, the place to which I rooted the Greek Danaus = Danaans. The next verse mentions a valley of Eschol, which I must assume named Ascalon, a term sacred to Aphrodite = the Kabeiri cult, and in my findings the root of one of the caduceus serpents (the Greek Asklepios to be exact) i.e. a main branch of the Cadusii peoples. Verse 22 shows that this event was at Hebron (a city seemingly tied to Zoan), what I would therefore consider pegging as a Kabeiri center in pre-Israel.
Indeed, we see that when the Israelite spies (under Joshua) were in the valley of Eschol, two spies carried a single pole wrapped with grapes, which is so evocative of the pole of Dionysus, called a "thyrsos," that it must be a match. That is, the pole of Dionysus, which his Maenads often carried, was wrapped with grape vines, wherefore the Dionysus portion of the dragon cult borrowed the idea for this symbol from the pages of Israelite Scripture. My conclusion is solid: Dionysus peoples were at the valley of Eschol, or nearby, in the Hebron region...which was not very distant from Ascalon or Timnah where I locate Cassiopeia Kassites and her (eventual) Guti enemies (that I say founded Gath and Gaza).
It should also be said that, in Greek myth, the Dionysus staff had underlying similarities with the Hermes caduceus staff. If not for locating Dionysus to the Tyre region, I would not have had reason to make a thyrsos/Tyrus equation. But as the thyrsos is tied to Bacchus, it should also pertain to the near-by Bekaa valley. The pine cone at the tip of the thyrsos depicted Attis, and in this chapter we will find an Edone-reason to explain Attis' role in the Tyre region. In fact, Attis' pine tree symbol may be traced in particular to the mountains of Phoenicia, even as Lebanon (where Phoenicia used to be) uses a cedar tree for it national symbol today.
I must also mention Caleb, a hero among the 12 Israeli spies, for his name evokes Halab (where Idrimi was from) and the Halybes, who were otherwise the Chalybes. Let me put it this way, that if Caleb was the patriarch of the Halybes, then the Excalibur sword of Arthur would trace to him, an Israelite of the tribe of Judah (Numbers 13:6). Caleb may thereby be the reason that the Arthur cult tends to tie Arthur to the Messianic bloodline (i.e. the Messiah was prophesied to be from the tribe of Judah, as in fact was Jesus, whose Hebrew name was Joshua). The problem is, the Halybes must be named after the Halys river (upon which they lived), and the "chalybe" term, meaning "iron" (as for example the English "chalybeate" refers to iron), must have been a term created by those Halys inhabitants...because Halybes are credited with inventing iron.
In this way, the Halybes are not named after Caleb, though perhaps Caleb was somehow named after a Halybe element in the region. "Caleb" is said to mean "dog," interesting because the "Maenads were also known as Bassarids (or Bacchae or Bacchantes) in Roman mythology, after the penchant of the equivalent Roman god, Bacchus, to wear a fox-skin."
Two points: 1) the Samson myth used foxes as a symbol for Samson's defeat of his Philistine enemies, thus suggesting that the fox symbol of the Bacchus-Dionysus cult (which must indeed have had a copy of the Israelite scriptures) tied itself to Samson himself, and/or a Samson ally (the Timnah=Semele ally definitely comes to mind); 2) the Bacchus cult was also "Bassar," which perhaps makes identification with Bashan more viable than the Bacchus term.
None of these bull's eyes that I'm hitting on a roll should make the reader think that I am incapable of making a cyclopean error at any moment. The great thing about writing online is that one can erase mistakes and re-publish a correction. But even then, cushion is the word. That is, writers should provide a cushion for a soft landing of their egos. Cushions come in a variety of forms; one example is to inform your readers in some sly way that you are not God after all, as much as you would have them to believe it (so that they will not stop reading). Another type of cushion is to admit possible errors, even though it's like providing pot-holes on the ride that you're taking the reader on. Pot holes can be precious, as for example on a long journey, where after a storm one may wash the dirt off a face and be loved once again. I've been wrong many times, but have removed my mistakes...the ones I've caught, anyway. I recognize that I have a very limited intelligence level, although intuition, perhaps a gift from God to the weaker minds of the world, makes up for it, as it should be.
I should also mention here that I've traced the Sitone branch of Edones to Sitten (Latin "Sedun") in south Switzerland, which city is also called "Sion." Coincidence, or was that the extension of Sion, the summit of Herman? After all, next to Switzerland is Germany, named after mount Hermon and Armenia, in my opinion.
Going back to the theory that "Bekaa" at Tyre is derived from "Baku/Bakukh" in Azer-Baijan (or vice versa), doesn't Biblical "Bashan" look conspicuous beside "Baijan"? Could Bashan, therefore, be an arm of mythical Bacchus? When considering this, it dawned on me that these terms can disclose some important details about Wassukani. I had been wondering why Nesi, a primo-recorded city of the Asian Hittites, was also "Kanesh/Kanes." The latter version evoked the "kani" in "Wassukani," and as I have routinely viewed Baku as an extension of Nuzi, it dawned on me that "Baku" and "Bacchus" could modify to "Wassu" (very close to the proto-Washington surname, "Wassa." If we take the "Bakukh" version of the Baku term, it aligns well with the "Washshukanni" variation of the city (by far the most-used online), where the two hard "c"s correspond to the double use of "sh." But we can also compare "Wassuk" with "Bakukh," an extremely close match.
Assuming that Wassukani (a version I like to use due to it's simplicity) was founded by the namers of Bakukh, the city then becomes a mythical-Bacchus domain, explaining all the more vividly the Dionysus-Mitanni alliance now in the process of being unveiled. Moreover, it could reveal the Hittite empire as one built by the namers of Wassukani, and do note that there was the city of Khana in the Euphrates-Habur region that could have contributed to the Wassukani name. In that picture, Wassukani could have been a Bacchus-Khana mix. It may be that Kanes (of the Hittites) was previously Nesi, rather than what's implied at Wikipedia, that Kanes and Nesi were the same term. As I gleaned that the Azzi were somehow at the root of the Mitanni, so the Azzi and/or Kassites might have been the first part of "AzerBaijan." In that case, "Baijan" might have been a variation of Lake Van, anciently Biaini.
Cassiopeia was portrayed in myth as a vain woman upon the Levant. The origin of this latter term is first said (by Wikipedia) to be from the French word for "lever," and secondly that its "raising" implication denotes the sunrise. We are then to believe further that, by this reasoning, "levant" came to depict the eastern/sunrise side of the Mediterranean sea.
Poppykaka! Why aren't other eastern shores likewise named "levant"? I'd say Freemasons were at work in developing "Levant" for the east-Mediterranean coast because they had secret reasons. Perhaps it denotes "Luwian" in their minds. Consider that "Levant" looks like yet another "Bant" term? In fact, it's identical to the "vand" in "Yervand"!! In case you've forgotten, Yervand is the Armenian version of the Greek, Orontes. This is a gigantic point under the suspicions that Trachonitis led to Trojans, and that Batanaea led to Batea, the mother of the Trojans, for myth has Troy founded by a Corybantes peoples.
That Samosata's founders were Armenians by blood is known, for Sames II (2nd century BC) was of the Orontes dynasty of Armenians. Where a "Y" and "G/C" are interchangeable, "Yervand" looks like a match with "Corybantes." Is this not huge?
Having implied many times that Trojans were closely related to the Halybo-Khaldi (on the Pontus), can it be a coincidence that, in myth, "...Aruban(i) [was] the name of Haldiís wife" (website below)? No, but Arubani depicted the Corybantes, and as such the Corybantes were wife/allies to the Khaldi, which then reveals the Corybantes as Halybes. If I have never before convinced you of a Halybe-Kabeiri connection, this is all you need, for the Kabeiri cult is known to have been a product of the Corybantes (through mythical Iasion). But now I also know that the cult was a product of the Yervand dynasty, or vice versa. Indeed, the Khaldi definitely became Armenians in later centuries.
Note the following variations of "Yervand," how one evokes Arda terms: "Classical sources are spelled as Orontes, Aruandes or Ardoates" (italics mine). As Habesh (i.e. Ethiopian Punt) was alternatively "Tigrinya," note that some Armenian kings of BC times were called "Tigranes." Let's not forget that Habesh was from mythical Abas, whose historical peoples in Euboea were called "Abanti(ans)."
This all quite amazing, as I knew nothing of it when I was tracing the dragon to the Veneti, their Vandal cousins, and their extended Gwynedd kingdom. That trace is accurate, for the Veneti derived from a Trojan peoples (depicted by mythical Antenor). Still more revealing is that while the Veneti were from the Heneti of Phrygia, Pelops (son of Tantalus) ruled Eneti. In this picture, it seems a certainty that the "Bant" root of the Trojans evolved into "Henet," as even "Veneti" would verify (i.e. a "v" and "b" were commonly inter-changed). In that case, "C" terms such as historical Cunedda, founder of Gwynedd, must apply if other evidence can make a Trojan>Veneti connection.
I don't know if Cassiopeia was in Ethiopia; her "marriage" to the king of Ethiopia doesn't necessitate her being there. I would think she was, however, as the (historical) Tigrinya, a peoples of Habesh. In identifying the Samaale-Cassiopeia alliance with the Biblical Avvites of Gath, Gaza and Ascalon, I imagine that these were Tigris Avvites...who got into Punt in the first place after migrating to become the pre-Israeli Avvites. It would seem that the Abas-Avvites of Euboea, who were in Ethiopia at the time, welcomed them; hence, the Cepheus-Cassiopeia marriage.
In Wikipedia, the earliest-recorded peoples (8th century BC) of Habeshite Punt are the D'mt, a term evoking mythical Tiamat in Sumeria, a region where the Tigris and Euphrates met at the Persian gulf (at that time called the Red sea), what was considered Eden. I've identified Tiamat as Dumuzi and Demeter, and certainly the latter character reflects "D'mt" well. Therefore, Cassiopeia was of Dumuzi elements, which elements named Damascus (on the west side of mount Hermon).
It is roundly believed that Dumuzi was the Adonis of Phoenicia. Firstly, I note that this term evokes Aton/Aten in Egypt and the Eden cult of Tiamat. The god should thereby be identified as the Edones by which I define the Aten cult, including but not limited to the Edones by which I identify the Ceto monster...that was at Joppa threatening to destroy the Cepheus-Cassiopeia offspring there. It is the largeness of Dionysus in mythology that assures me of his large role within those Andromeda offspring.
Not only did Adonis depict the Adonis river in Phoenicia, but "Hesiod made him the son of Phoinix." At his death, Aphrodite is found spreading nectar on his body, as his blood dripped out, which may be a picture of the Molech sacrifice...making me wonder whether Molech victims weren't typically spread with honey before being sacrificed. If so, why? Why did the Samson myth include a lion with honey in its carcass? Indeed, as he was the Hercules of Greek myth, note that Hercules was also made a symbol of the Melkart cult in Tyre. Why was pre-Israel said to be a land of milk and honey? Ethiopia is a significant honey=producing region to this day, and since Merovingian Franks (who worshiped bees) trace to ancient Ethiopia, Punt apparently had something to do with it.
As Amorites are depicted by bees in the Bible, note that Amorites lived in the Gath-Gaza region with Avvites, as well as at Hebron. I believe Merovingians (from Merovee) are from Amorites, as well as from Merops, mythical king of Ethiopia, wherefore Merops appears to be the Amorites ruling Punt, whereas Cepheus depicted Avvites ruling Punt. Joshua 2:10 then reveals that Og, king in Bashan, was an Amorite. But where are the Edones in this picture? The Amorites, for Amorites were at the root of the Eden cult in Tiamat Sumeria. I would therefore peg the D'mt as Edones in Punt.
In one version, Adonis was made born in Cyprus, and in other ways he was associated with Aphrodite there. The story of his birth involves incest, and this evokes her dark Eros cult: Cabero. In this, Adonis parallels Attis (similar terms, in fact), who was made to marry his Great Mother, and in fact Adonis is sometimes equated with Attis. Perseus, Cypselos, and Adonis were all placed in chests as infants, which seems too conspicuous to ignore, especially as Perseus saved Cassiopeia's descendants from Ceto. Plus, Cypselos (styled by the myth writer to mean "chest/capsule") was one whom I identified with Cepheus, husband of Cassiopeia. While I'll admit that my attempt to interpret the chest code, as the pyramids of Cheops' family, was a rather limited shot in the dark, I'll try to make up for it by a second theory: the chest symbol = Pandora's box. For I see a "Bant" term in her name.
I recall now that mythical Erechtheus of Athens (i.e. like "Aten") was twinned with Butes, and that I defined "Butes" as "body/bud," in the sense of a box or shell, from which the Hebrew "Bet(h)" (meaning "house") derived. Are they coincidences that the father of Erechtheus was Pandion, that Erechtheus had a son, Pandorus, and a daughter, Pandora??? Moreover, as I tied the Edones to the Hephaestus-Cabero partnership at the Hebros delta, while identifying Cepheus as Hephaestus at Memphis and nearby Giza, is it another coincidence that the father of Erechtheus was made Hephaestus?
I recall having Memphis founded by Mamre's Amorite family of the Hebron region, and this, where an Edone-Amorite equation is acknowledged, squares with Aphrodite Edones founding Memphis (I see Edones integral to Aphrodite whereas they may only be circumstantial to Hephaestus). I can then anticipate that Hebron was of the Aphrodite cult that named the Hebros river...but not before she became Kyprus at Cyprus. None of this is contradictory to the accepted idea that king Menes of Tanis founded Memphis, for the building of Tanis is tied to the building of Hebron
Hephaestus also had something central to do with the other Pandora, the so-called "first woman" and her box:"Zeus ordered Hephaestus to create her as part of the punishment of mankind." This squares with Biblical Eve, and with my Bant-term connection to Avvites, for I had reasoned that the Avvite term was created in honor of Eve. It's interesting that Pandora had another name, "Nesidora," for it evokes Dionysus and/or the Hittite city of Nesi.
From these details, one can fathom that the early-Yervand Armenians had gone, as the Hephaestus-Hatti, to rule Athens. They were the Cecrops line, for Erechtheus was of that line, and so the serpent tail that Cecrops was depicted with must pertain to the dragon cult that was the proto-Yervand dynasty. The Pand terms (above) that were made descendants of the Cecrops line must equate with the Corybantes proto-Trojans, for indeed the patriarch of the Trojans became inter-married with that very Pand-portion of the Cecrops line.
The following statement tends to suggest that Trojans came forth from the Yervand bloodline in the Phoenician Levant: "According to Apollodorus, it was during Pandion I's reign that the gods Demeter and Dionysus came to Attica."
I couldn't have asked for a miracle to play better into this picture than that concise statement. As Pandion was of a very early time, I would identify Demeter here, not as the D'mt of Punt, but more-certainly as the core Dumuzi=Adoni cult in the Phoenician Levant. I would identify Dionysus, not as the Samaali of Punt returned to Phoenicia, but whatever peoples Semele depicted in the Levant prior to that return. The fox snout points to Timnah. Demeter can then be identified as a Sames/Shamash term (very close to the Biblical "Tammuz" variation of Dumuzi), and from that conclusion we could identify the Demeter wave to Athens as the Samson side of the Samson-Timnah alliance. Do you read? This alliance came to rule Athens...but is to be distinguished from Cecrops, as a peoples becoming meshed with Cecrops.
Yes, after mixing in pre-Israel with the Yervand dragon, Dionysus and Demeter arrived to Athens/Attica to be the Cecrops > Corybantes bloodline. Apparently, Apollodorus' statement, wherein Demeter and Dionysus arrive in the reign of Pandion (which never happened because there was never such a man), serves only to reveal that the Yervand bloodline was one and the same as the Pandion term, implying that Apollodorus knew this.
As I traced Abas Abantians to Cepheus, and then identified him as the Cephissus river, see now that Erechtheus, son of Pandion, married the granddaughter of mythical Cephissus (depicting the river of that name at Athens). If this doesn't reveal that the Abas Abantians who went to rule Ethiopia were just from this Cecrops-Erechtheus alliance, I'll eat my beehive.
Now behold the confusion between Erechtheus and Erichthonius, where the two are sometimes equated and sometimes not quite. It becomes apparent just now that Erichthonius was entered into the Cecrops myth script (just prior to Pandion and Erechtheus) to depict, and to include some details about, the Demeter-Dionysus mix entering as outsiders into the Cecrops line. Not only was Erichthonius said to be an adopted son of Cecrops (i.e. not from Cecrops ancestry), but Athena "placed [Erichthonius] in a small box" when he was an infant! This story assures us that the box symbolism is that of Pandora's, representing the troubles of mankind stemming from this dragon cult = Yervand bloodline.
It was in this box into which Erichthonius was placed that he was discovered having a serpentine tail. The father of Erichthonius was made Hephaestus, and as Perseus the Danaan was also placed into a chest as an infant, the Danaans may have been Edones. I must admit, it seems conspicuous that, of the Israelite tribe of Dan, the Bible says: "Dan will be a serpent on the path" (Genesis 49:17). Withholding comment for now, I'll go on to say that there is now some chest-reason to equate Cypselos with Cepheus = the Cephissos river. It's interesting that, in 657 BC, an historical "Cypselos seized power from the Bacciads," for they evoke the Bacchus term.
Bacchus brings me round to Bashan, anciently Batanaea. It boggles my mind to have come to this Dionysus connection to Erichthonius after I had postulated a Batanaea-Batea equation, for Erichthonius was made the son of Batea! You have heard that animals have instinct, and that God has programmed their genes to create that instinct; I sometimes feel that I have been programmed to write this story; things like this never cease to amaze me. I almost died at birth, and so I can only conclude that God said, "No. wait, I've got a better idea. Load this floppy into his neck and call it Myth-Buster. Then let him live." I sometimes think something along these lines, on a serious level.
Remember, Trachone was on the border of Batanaea, while Troy is the result of Erichthonius' brother, Ilus (also a son of Batea), who is made to give birth to Tros. It could then be that the "(Cory)bantes" term is a modification of "Batan," and if so it would stem, not from Dardanus (Batea's husband), but from Batea. As Teucer was Batea's father, Batea should be viewed as a Togarmite-Aryan peoples, which aligns with Bashan being the land of Aryan giants.
Dardanus and Batea are located by myth in the Lydian theater, but this was not Lotan>Lydia, for the latter came later, perhaps as the Ethiopian wave in the time of mythical Memnon. Details later. It is interesting that, in Georgia, the Bats and the Laz lived very near to each other, if not among each other.
This would be a super place to mention Hesse-Cassel in Germany, for "Hesse " is said to be a variation of "Catti." Cassiopeia is definitely evoked by these terms, but, now, I re-mention a tribe of the Catti, the Batavians, who have been part of my instincts (i.e. no real evidence for it) for quite some time as a stem of mythical Butes from Athens!! None of this chapter or the preceding ones, on the Hatti/Cati/Khassi topic, were written with making Cassiopeia connection to Butes or Batavians. The pieces are just happening to fall into place because...I am Programmed. I say that lightly.
There must be a reason that Erechtheus was given Butes as a twin, and while it's obvious that he was the entry of Batea into the Cecrops line, a trace of Butes back to Bacchus elements is perhaps justified where Butes was defined as a bull cult, for "Bacchus" may have meant "vacca" = bull, even as "Tyrus" evokes a bull cult. This should explain why Butes was made the son of Pandion and Zeuxippe (ignore the "ippe" suffix), for Zeus was the bull cult in Dagon-infested regions of the Levant. To prove Butes associations with Bacchus, another Butes (same peoples) became allied with a Bacchus tribe, for Butes was "Son of Boreas. He stole one of the bacchae of Dionysus..." Her name was Coronis.
There was yet another mythical Butes that sheds more light, and in fact supports my trace of Butes to the island of Bute, Scotland, which island was earlier Rothesay and therefore Avalon: "Aphrodite's lover and a Sicilian king. He was the father of Eryx by Aphrodite." This Butes could only be Eros, son of Aphrodite, in Sicily. That is, Greek Butes was the Rus bloodline of Eros, but removed to Sicily. Eryx was himself made a "renowned boxer," which then identifies him as some portion of the boxer, mythical Pollux = Puglia (south-eastern Italy).
The Crotons are pegged, for Milo of Croton was also depicted as a boxer, and as the Crotons evoke the Cretans, it fits with my previous identification with Erichthonius as the Cruithin of Ireland/Scotland, whom I traced back to the Curetes of Crete...known to have been a tribe with the Corybantes. Moreover, I identified the Cruithin as the ancestors of the Crichton surname, which name did in fact become meshed with the Stewart rulers on Bute! Having Eros as a part of Bute-island ancestry aligns with the identification of the Avalon inhabitants as Muses, for Eros and the Muses were essentially one. I can now add to this picture an Edone ancestry, since I have since discovered that Aphrodite was such.
As this Avalon wave had to incorporate Apollo, while Butes was not from Apollo (i.e. from the far north), but from Bashan, note that Buto, an Egyptian goddess at Letopolis near Memphis, was equated by the Greeks with Leto, mother of Apollo, suggesting a Butes-Apollo mix at some point and place.
It becomes apparent to me that Butes of Athens (depicting a Butadae peoples), because he was called the Erechtheian Poseidon, was quite one with Poseidon, which is made all the more interesting in that Butes was associated, if not equated with, a certain Buzyges. This is evidence for my Buzi root of Poseidon. To support my hunch that Poseidon was founded in Buz, son of Nahor (Biblical "Nachor"), we find that this Butes "went with a band of colonists to the island of Strongyle, afterwards called Naxos."While Naxos was the sacred island of Poseidon, I have also started to view it as a "Nachor" code. My problem is, which may become a key revelation somehow, is that this picture paints Bashan as Poseidon.
Now behold. I kid you not that I came to this as I wrote the question above, for as I was wondering how else to prove that Nahor was in Bashan, by finding evidence of another son or two there, I remembered Kemuel (Genesis 22:21), his son after Buz, and rolling that term around in my mouth, as is my habit, I spit out "Semele." What do you think?? Could it be? Could Dionysus Kassites have come to form alliances with Nahorites? Are the Somalians the Nahor-Hebrew element of that African region? Remember Nairobi. Does it explain the Budini-Neuri alliance?
Kemuel was the father of Aram, and this causes me pause, for as it's known that Aram of the Arameans was the son of Elam, the Aram from Nahor could have been the proto-Armenians...and the Azzi could then have been named after Nahor's fifth son, Hazo. Could Azer-Baijan have been an Azzi-Biaini realm that saw Dionysus move there from Nuzi? This is all the more intriguing as I had previously identified Kemuel as the root of Camelot and the Camel/Gamel peoples of that place.
To explain how the Dionysus-Mitanni cult got to Messenia by this Cecrops picture, we find that "Pandion [II] fled to Megara where he married Pylia, daughter of King Pylas. Later, Pylas went into voluntary exile to Messenia." Remember, these are not true characters, but rather this was a myth writers way of making a royal Athens-to-Pylos connection, which he knew to be a reality. We then find that one of Pandion's sons by Pylia was Nisus, king of Megara. I think Megara ties into the Butes code by mythical Buzas of Megara, code for Byzantium. Can it be a coincidence that Buzas (or "Byzas") was the son of king Nisou? No, but Buzas was of the Pandion line (i.e. the same as the Nisos code), thus supporting a Buzas/Butes equation.
To explain how the Dionysus line then jumps from Messenia to the Italian dragon, the Trojan line issuing forth from Batea produces the Roman Trojans as per mythical Aeneas, whose code appears to be a version of Oeneus, the wine king of Greece who had himself issued from Dionysus.
Aeneas is then made to marry into the Latinus bloodline, and this marriage leads to the Romans. The reality must be that the Dionysus peoples in Greece led to the Etruscans and the Latins, the Etruscans (i.e. Tyrrhenus) in the first Tyre > Trojan wave, and the Latins in the second wave Lotan > Lydia wave.
There's another chapter in the works on this same topic, to be located after this one soon. The chapter below was written about 6 months before this one.
Watna Hell Were the Hyksos?
I had trouble believing that Scandinavians
could be from Egyptian roots.
Not any more.
