"In the Babylonian Talmud (Sanh. 63a; comp. Yalkute Shim'oni, 234) R. Judah, transmitting a saying in the name of Abba Arika, states that Tartak was worshiped in the form of an ass. All attempts to identify this god have thus far proved unsuccessful. No similar divinity is found among the Babylonians or Assyrians; and an Egyptian parallel exists only in so far as the ass was sacred to the god Typhon and was sacrificed to him."
An absence of an ass god in Mesopotamia is another reason for suggesting a Tarsus base. Tartak evokes Ashtart, in fact, the Syrian version of Ishtar, and Ishtar was Typhon's wife in that Ishtar was Echidna. Because Typhon is Daphne, she and everything she represents is identified as the donkey bloodline: Hermes, Pan, the Cadusii, Manes, Thoth, Tyre, mount Hermon, Sion, Ascalon, and Semiramis/Osiris/Horus.
Having found that Ishtar depicted Hebrew Amorites, it was she who meshed with Israel to introduce dragon doctrines into the pure religion of YHWH. No surprise. But finding that she originated in Telmun, is it a coincidence that the Oral Law of the Jews is called the "Talmud"? Did not Jesus lambaste this very Oral Law when he rebuked the Pharisees and Sadducees for replacing God's Law with their "traditions of men"?
In Part One of this chapter, I showed that cartoonist Thomas Nast advanced cartoon images of Uncle Sam and his forerunner, Brother Jonathan. Now I learn that the same cartoonist was the one to advance both the Democrat donkey and Republican elephant. "Thomas Nast, a famous political cartoonist...first used the donkey in an 1870 Harper's Weekly cartoon to represent the 'Copperhead Press' kicking a dead lion..."
Although the lion in this case depicted (Republican) president Lincoln's right-hand man in the American civil war, who had recently died, I can't help but suspect that Nast knew his Illuminati history quite well, for Samson had himself killed a lion. I am claiming that Nast used his donkey to connect back to Samson because he knew that Thomas Jefferson (founder of the Democrats) connected to Samson. Indeed, "In a cartoon that appeared in Harper's Weekly in 1874, Nast drew a donkey clothed in lion's skin," evoking the same conclusion I came to in the Part One, that after killing the lion, the lion became the Amorite people whom Samson depicted.
The donkey symbol is attached by me to Samson because he used the jawbone of a donkey, myth style, to kill 1,000 of his enemies (see previous chapter). I claim that the jawbone was the symbol of the city in which it was found, Lehi/Lechiy. This made me think of a leading Democrat senator today (upcoming Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee), Patrick Leahy. Hmm, let's see...Houseofnames.com reports that the Irish version of "Leahy" is "Laochdha" (also "Laocda"), where the hard "c" could certainly soften to become "Laoshdha," which is awfully close to "Laus Deo" (what's written atop of the Washington Monument). Amazing. What else?
The Leahy Coat and Crest is a gold lion on red background, a prime symbol evolving into the Arms of Normandy (i.e. the Claros) and England. Amazing. What else?
The Leish Coat (which includes Lise, Lish, and Leash) uses a gold lion as the Crest and two red chevron on gold background for the Coat, for which reason it seems to be a Leahy branch. As the "Leish" surname evokes the city of Laish/Luz, I would view the city of Lechiy -- in Judah -- as founded by the Laz/Ladon peoples who founded Laish (at Sion/Hermon). Apparently, the founders of Lechiy were of mythical Lykoan as well, for he was the father of Laodokos. After all, the goddess of both Lycians and Lydians was Lada/Leto.
It is apparent, therefore, that the Daniy 300 years before Samson fought against the Ladon dragon (i.e. Laish), known as Lotan the coiling serpent in Phoenicia/Syria. Lotan was the enemy of Hadad, the Amorite god, wherefore it's yet further support for an Amorite identity of the Daniy. However, 300 years later, the Daniy under Samson were allied to the Ladon dragon (i.e. Lechiy).
Israelites knew a serpent named Tannin, "a name applied to Egypt after the exodus of the Israelites from that country." That sounds like the city of Tanis, at/near the Israelite camp of Goshen, and therefore I would identify Tannin as the Daniy. The question is, were those Daniy the Egyptians who were chased out of the Nile delta by the Hyksos invasion (occurring roughly at the Exodus) i.e. the pharaoh who suffered the Ten Plagues? Or, were the Daniy of the Hyksos themselves? The founders of America who used Egyptian symbols on the Great Seal of the United States were from the answer to those questions, and there is little doubt that the answer leads to Hercules (the Danaan) and the Danu/Danann Atlanteans of Britain.
It's now interesting that Samson went to hide out at a cave called, "Etam" (Judges 15:8,11), evoking the Atamti Elamites = the Tiamat allies of the Abzu Amorites. It's interesting because "Some scholars associated Tannin with Tiamat." Etam was just 13 miles west of (Amorite) Hebron, and Samson went to hide there after using the 300 jackals/foxes (Avvite symbol) to fight his Philistine enemies...just before he used the jawbone of a donkey to continue his fight.
It seems like another Direction from Above that just two days ago, before I knew about the Leish Coat, my friend Kathleen Bot---- sent me the design of the Pope/Pape Coat, also using two red chevron on gold background. In all three cases of the Leahy, Leish, and Pope Coats, there is a square in the upper left hand corner (just as in the American flag), affirming the kinship of all three families.
Because the Clare Coat uses three red chevron on gold background, the Clares may have become the third chevron (i.e. when becoming inter-married with the families depicting the other two chevron). What could this imply where the three red chevron were contemplated as the design on the Great Seal of America?
Remember, I've tentatively traced the Claros/Clares to the Lydian city of Clarus, where Mopsus (grandson of Tiresias) was seer. Mopsus, as son of Manto, depicted a Sabina/Spartan peoples, for the Mandaean Avars were called "Sabians." This bloodline leads to the Swabians and therefore to the Hohens. Knowing that the Hohen-family Arms used red hearts (as well as the red triple chevron), see that the German Pape Coat uses three red hearts on gold background [Update: strange, but the Pape Coat at that address no longer uses three red hearts, but rather three black dog heads.]
As "Papeleu" is shown (in the link above) to be a version of the Pape surname, I checked the Babel Coat (and very glad that I did!) to find that it uses (brace yourself) a blue and white version of the 13 stripes in the Great Seal of the United States! Amazing!! I never would have known this had not Kathleen sent me that Pope Coat, so timely. [Strange. In August, I checked the English Babel Coat, but the one displayed was no longer the eagle on 13 stripes, but on only six stripes. I know I saw the 13 stripes.]
That blue and white flag in the Babel Coat has a black Hohen eagle on it, and moreover uses 13 stripes just like the red and white American version. I dare say that the founders of America were closely related to the Babel (also Babwell) surname. The German Babel Coat uses a blonde mermaid, and it's very interesting that the surname is derived from "Boebel," evoking the Boeotian Argonauts = mythical Orcs (of Orkney), likely discoverers of America. One man believed by some to have discovered America (in 1398 AD) was earl of Orkney, Henry Sinclair...of the Claro family, a branch of Clares! Amazing.
Greenway7 sent an email that had me checking the Moray-surname Coat, and there on the Crest is the same mermaid. Because the Moray/Murray surname was first found in Morayshire, the shire may have been named after them (though it could have ben vice versa). In any case, the Babel mermaid traces to Moray. Thinking that "Moray" may have been an Amorite term, I checked the Amor Coat to find three red hearts used by the Spanish branch (this may mean that Amorite bloodlines came to be depicted by amore/love = hearts). Have you ever seen paintings of Jesus with the red "sacred heart"??? I'm asking if the sacred-heart symbol wasn't introduced by Amorite Christians, and wondering what brand of Christianity they might have been.
The Boebels are originally from Wurttemberg, in Hohen Swabia. "For short periods of time, the seat of the [Wurttemberg] government...was located in Ludwigsburg and Urach" (Wikipedia). "Lud" could refer to the Luz/Ladon bloodline. "Urach" evokes the Orcs and the Arak river where the Soducena of Lake Sevan were located, and so see that the Bad Urach Arms (in Baden-Wuerttemberg) uses seven Magen David hexagrams.
Because they are green hexagrams on gold background, it reminds me of the Pollock Coat. Having always wondered where the green field of that Coat derived, I found this possibility: "The green field is common with the arms of Wrexham." I'll come back to the green and gold colors.
The same website (above) shows the Arms of the Pembrokeshire (south-west Wales). Not only is the Pembroke Crest an eagle, evoking the eagle gate at the Old Hall of Washington (England), but two of the quarters in the Coat are "Argent two Bars Gules," meaning two red bars on silver (i.e. white) background...the very symbol of the Washington Coat!!! (See Washington Coat here if link not active)
The red triple chevron of Wales should connect to the Clare Coat, even though the Clares used a gold background. But the Clare Coat should more-likely connect to Pembroke specifically, for "[Pembrokeshire] was founded as a county palatine in 1138 with Gilbert de Clare as the first Earl of Pembroke." One can then assume that a family related to the Clares used the triple red chevron on a white field, and that it was this family that was at first chosen to represent the Coat on the Great Seal of the United States.
Now the triple chevron on the Cardiff Arms (capital of Wales) are white on red background, but my heraldry understanding is that this is of the same family as another Welsh one using three red chevron on white background. Since the chevron are held by the dragon, it must have some sort of centrality/supremacy among all the other symbols of Cardiff. It is now December 8, 2006, and finally, after almost six months of looking out for the origin of the Cardiff Arms' triple chevron, I have found it in the rulers of Morgannwg (round brackets not mine):
"The red chevrons on gold are those of the de Clare family, Norman lords of Glamorgan (who made Cardiff the centre of their Lordship), and in the other half the three silver [white] chevrons on red are those attributed to Iestyn ap Gwrgant, the last Welsh ruler of Morgannwg"
Here are the South Glamorgan Arms where both triple-chevron symbols can be seen combined in one Coat. Note too the same two symbols in the Mid-Glamorgan Arms. I do declare, if even a little hasty: it looks like the American Illuminati was from Welsh blood, perhaps from Morgannwg itself (extreme south Wales). Wikipedia reports that Wales was made up of "thirteen historic counties," which makes me wonder if the founders of America intentionally provided their 13 states to reflect the Welsh situation. Is America the New Wales? It was intended by 17-century Rosicrucians, after all, to be the New Atlantis. Knowing that Welsh Atlanteans were Gorgons, might Iestyn's (also "Jestyn") city, Gwrgant, be a reflection of Gorgons? Were American founders Gorgons? Cimmerians=Gomer, that is.
With "Morgannwg," the Morgan surname comes to mind, commonly connected by conspiracy theorists to the Rothschild and/or Rockefeller Illuminati. Note that the Welsh Morgan/Morien Coat uses a gold lion on green background. Eventually I found that a gold lion on green was also the Connor Coat, which houseofnames.com claims were "derived from the personal name Conchobhar." The (O')Connors went on to become rulers of Connacht. "The ancestor from whom they take surname was Conchobhar, King of Connacht (d.971)."
It was only after these notes emphasized Morgan of Wales that mythical Morgan la Fay came to mind, daughter of Arthur's mother and enemy of both he and Merlin. It's not likely a coincidence that the painting of Morgan at the Wikipedia article has her in green and gold clothes.
In that article, it is suggested that she is the triad Irish monster cult called "Morrigan." Looking into it, I found that Morrigan, depicting the Tuath de Danann, was given the personal name of "Annan," and having recently discovered the similar "Anan" to be a Tolkien code for Ireland, I started making that connection.
Then I found that Annan belonged smack to Tolkien's Manwe -- chief of the good-guy gods -- and his empire in south Ireland. For I learned that "[Annan] has particular associations with Munster: the twin hills known as the Paps of Anu (Dá Chích Anann) near Killarney, County Kerry are said to have been named after her." Because Tolkien spilled the truth that Manwe's empire was centered at the tallest mountain in Anan, I figured that it was Ireland's tallest, Carrauntoohill (Irish = "Corrán Tuathail"). Is it a coincidence that Annan (i.e. Morrigan) traces to the same mountain? For "[County] Kerry contains two of the three highest mountains in Ireland, Carrauntoohill...and Mount Brandon..." Note that Hohens ruled from Brandenburg (Germany).
Is it a coincidence that the colors of Kerry County are green and gold, plus what appears to be a blue and white version of the red and white Franconian Rake (Hohens were Franconians, though the Franconian Rake may have been specifically a Grimaldi symbol)? Houseofnames.com tells that the Kerry surname is of a Celt peoples from the Kerrey region of Montgomeryshire (Stewart-region Wales). Note the bee hive as the Kerry crest.
The Connors (using a gold lion on green background) were first recorded in Munster and Kerry!! They lived/ruled also in County Clare to the north of Kerry, where in fact the Clare family came to roost. And "The O'Connor sept of Kerry is at the present day much the most numerous of them all." Keep in mind my far-fetched theory that these Conn terms of Ireland were Cohens.
I checked to see if I could find a surname with green and gold checks (i.e. as relatives of the Cohens/Hohens), and that led to the Sparks Coat (or see it here if link not active). The English Sparks Coat shown at houseofnames.com uses no checks while there appears to be a swan as the Crest. Now see the flag of Washington state, having a green background with the Seal of Washington in the center, that Seal being a gold ring around George. That could per chance be a clue tying some part of the Washington family to green and gold Wrexham elements, as well as to the Sparks surname.
Indeed, why was it that an influential Jared Sparks "published the Life and Writings of George Washington in twelve volumes, his most important work; and in 1839 he published separately the Life of George Washington, an abridged version in two volumes"? Were the Sparks and Washingtons related?
There is the major city of Swansea in Morgannwg, though I can't find whether it derives from "swan." Swansea is the largest city in Wales next to Cardiff (the latter is also in Morgannwg). There is an ancient city in the confines of Cardiff called "Dinas Powis," and "It is believed Iestyn ap Gwrgant's base was at Dinas Powis." "Dinas" is said to mean "city/fort," but it reflects the Dina-ite Cuthaeans (Biblically the "Dinay") very well.
A website says this concerning the swan acting as the Crest in the Arms of Montgomeryshire:
"...the swan is for the beautiful waterways of the county, particularly the rivers Severn and Wye."
Is it a coincidence that "Severn" evokes "Sevan"? The same article may help to discover the origin of the Vere Wyvern dragon: "The green wyverns [on the Arms of Montgomeryshire] derive from the crest of the Herberts, Earls of Powis and Montgomery. The golden fleeces hanging from their necks refer to the former woollen industry." Hmm, the woollen industry? Maybe not. Maybe the golden fleece of mythology = the Argonauts/Rukhs.
Gloucester, not far from Morgannwg, uses the Clare chevron in the Gloucester Arms? See also these Arms of Gloucester.". Those are again golden fleeces that you see hanging, which link to Colchis, what I identify as a prime settlement of the Gileki Semites...which I say were depicted by mythical Glaucus.
The Clares had ruled the border between Wales and England, on which border was Maelor, and now Wrexham-Maelor. Wrexham, in Denbighshire (extreme north-east Wales i.e. border region), evokes the Vere city of Worcester (anciently "Wrocester") on the Severn river. As you can see, "Wrex" and "Wroc" evoke the Rukhs of Caucasia...the region that I had traced the swan symbol to. Behold now the two gold shepherd staffs (on green background) in the Arms of Wrexham Maelor, also found on the Leahy Coat!!
It was as I was writing the paragraph above that I found the Wrocester Coat to be a virtual copy of the Hohen Coat, except that it includes three gold shells on a green band. Houseofnames.com does not connect this surname to the town of Wroxeter (no "s") in Shropshire, but rather to Rochester in Kent, though it seems feasible enough that the two places were founded by the same Celts. Wroxeter was anciently "Viroconium" (also on the Severn), what looks like "Verkana" (now Gorgan) at the south end of the Caspian sea. Wikipedia reports that "Virconium" derives from "the ancient British Uriconion," which became "Wrekin" (five miles east of Viroconium). "Guircon," the Welsh version of "Viroconium," evokes the Gorgons well enough.
Wikipedia seems to discount my theory that these terms are rooted in "Argo/Rukh, for it reports that "Viroconium" is to be divided as Viro-Conium, with the latter portion referring to a Conii tribe of Spanish Iberia. This tribe looks like Daniy-Laish paydirt, for "The capital of Lusitania was Augusta Emerita (currently Merida," an Amorite term if ever I saw one, and "The name may be of Celtic origin: Lus and Tanus, 'tribe of Lusus'". That sure does sound like the Sion cult at Laish, later called "Dan." Indeed, the article below shows the Roman version, "Lyssam," which smacks of the Biblical version of Laish found in Joshua 19:47: "Leshem."
The article goes on to say that Lyssam/Lyssa was "associated with Bacchus...and that Pan is its governor." These terms refer (in my mind) to the Bekaa valley of Lebanon and nearby Panias, the latter being within a couple of miles from Laish! We also learn that the Lusitanians my have been "related to the Lusones" in eastern Iberia, and that the going belief traces one or both peoples back to north Italy...which is where Daphne was as per the Ligurian city of Savona and the adjacent French region of Dauphine.
It would appear that the Lusitanians/Lusones were the Lug portion of the Lug-Danann partnership, and if true, the god Lug derives from Laish and is therefore the same as Ladon! This sits fine with me even though a "g" is not a "d", for "Lug" is said to be the origin of "Leyden/Laiden" (in Holland)...where Hebrew bankers, Rosicrucians, and Hebrew Rosicrucians lived. Moreover, I have already shown the relationship of Laish to mythical Lykaon/Lycaon (a wolf people), who I traced to Lycia, which I had in turn traced forward to the Illuminati-like government of Lycurgus of Sparta, and finally to the Swan-constellation (i.e. Cygnus) Ligurians.
In the description on the Leahy Coat, it says that the Leahy family was "descended from the tribe of Uaithne." Wikipedia then says that: "In Celtic mythology, Uaithne is the harpist who plays the magical harp of The Dagda" (the harp/lyre is a symbol on Irish flags). "Dagda" is a variation of "Dago-deiwos," possibly an allusion to the Daphne bloodline. Indeed, for Dagda was a ruler of the Tuatha de Danann. In fact Dagda was "the supreme god in Celtic Mythology," and was preceded on the Irish throne by Lug! " Add that to the fact that "Leahy" is Laochdha/Laocda in Irish, and perhaps treat the "da" on those terms as the "da" on Dagda = "deiwos."
Getting back to the Conii tribe of Lusitania, Wikipedia calls them "Cynetes" as well, a term smacking of the Kenites i.e. who, I hypothesized, were the Amorites of Khana (Euphrates-and-Habur junction) evolving onto the basis of the Washington clan. And as I am dealing here with what appear to be Rukhs/Argives, who were from Boeotia, behold that the Conii lived beside Baetica, one of the three Iberian provinces.
Baetica was to the east of Lusitania, and in extreme southern Spain where one of the pillars of Hercules was situated i.e. the European pillar (versus the African pillar) of most-ancient western Atlantis! Recall my theory that Boeotus and Aeolus, twins. founded Atlantis. I can now add that these must have become Baetica and Galicia, the latter being Portugal and western Iberia. Galician tribes included the Brigantini and Albions, clearly a dragon-line peoples that I am deeply concerned with. The African pillar was across the Gibraltar strait in Morocco, what might be another Amorite term the likes of which named "America," but in any case evokes "Morgan." Was America named after Morgan???
Supporting my theory that the holy grail cult refers to Cilix/Cilicia = "chalice," note that the Arms of Galicia is a gold chalice. Yes, this is the Catholic-mass chalice with communion wafer, but I yet think that Catholic-mass symbols are Christianized double-speak for the pagan holy grail with sun-god symbol.
Now doesn't the "Cynete" tribe evoke king "Cunedda," founder of Gwynedd, but who had first ruled at Lothian? Recall that I had ventured to root Cunedda/Gwynedd in the Kenites>Heneti>Veneti>Venedotia, and that Heneti was the city of Eneti at which ruled the golden-fleece line, mythical Pelops. Recall now the Hohen-version Wrocester Coat of Kent, and note that "Kent" is similar to the terms above, as well as to Gwent in southern Wales. Then keep in mind that Kent was founded by Jutes = Guti Satyrs.
As Pelop's father was Tantalus, behold that Baetica was also "Andalusia"! (See location of Andalusia). Now Beotica/Andalusia was the home of the "once great and powerful Tartessian Civilization." Their capital city, Tartessos, is widely tied to Atlantis as well as Tarsus of Cilicia. Moreover, Andalusia was home to the province of Cádiz (also "Gadir/Gadeira," a Phoenician region that Plato tied closely to Atlantis. The flag of Andalusia are green and white bands, with the Arms of Andalusia in the center; note that those Arms use the pillars of Hercules (as seen on coins of Asia Minor), and two gold lions...thus tracing the gold lions of England and Normandy, with little doubt. back to Hercules.
Herodotus located the Cynetes, whom he called "Cynesii," west of the Celts, and his words implied Britain because he located the Celts west of Gibraltar, and the Cynesii further west still. He wrote: "The Celts though, live beyond the Columns of Hercules, and are neighbours with the Cynesii, who are the most extreme people in the western parts of Europe."
One then needs to ask if these peoples became the Eburovices and Cenomani Gauls (Wales was named after Gauls), and their fellow Parisii who founded York. It is very interesting that these three tribes from northern Italy were eventually found in Amorica, what may have become the Morgan terms of Britain (Redones had also moved to Armorica). Some think that America was named after "Armorica." As the Eburovices are (in my opinion) the Artemis/Calydon boars coming to Britain, I'll add here that the following Welsh bloodline depicted itself with three black boar heads on white background: "The lion is attributed to Elystan Glodrhydd, a Prince of Wales about 1000, and the boars' heads are associated with his son Cadwgan."
The above design is on the Radnorshire Arms, and shows a silver lion on red field, while at another website, the same Radnorshire Coat is shown having a gold lion on red field, and is likewise attributed to Elystan Glodrydd. This is all very interesting because I had connected the Abreu surname to the Eburovices (at Evreux), while the Abreu Coat uses two gold lions on red field. (Radnorshire was immediately south of Montgomeryshire).
There are some Morgan and Meurig (or "Meric") names attributed to the rule of Radnorshire that should be investigated, and moreover these names may have connected to the Welsh region of Brycheiniog (Brecon, between Glamorgan and Radnorshire). It is said that Brycheinog was named after king Brychan. Behold the type of mythical symbols given him, for a seer named Drichan "called Brychan to bring him his trusty spear for the last time. With it, he pointed to a nearby boar and a stag who came from the forest to stand with a fish in the river, by a beech-tree dripping with honey..." In this way, the Brychad (Bruce?) bloodline may have led to the three boar heads that were the Arms of Cadwgon. Remember that the Cenomani were also the Catuvellauni of Britain, the root of which reflects "Cadwgon" fairly well.
I found a quote online that seems to relate to the imagery above: In fact oxúa / oxúe means both 'beech tree' and 'spear', just like melía / melíe and askr mean both 'ash tree' and 'spear'" [and don't forget "honey"].
Now just as I have Daphne founding Devonshire of Cornwall, so Wikipedia tells that the Conii/Cynetes of southern Portugal became the Cornovii tribe, founders of Cornwall!! The article goes on to say that "Their capital in pre-Roman times was probably a hill fort on The Wrekin. Ptolemy's 2nd century Geography names two of their towns: Deva Victrix (Chester), and Viroconium Cornoviorum (Wroxeter), which became their capital under Roman rule."
Note the city of Deva, what evokes "Daphne." Deva was not Devon of Cornwall, but what is now Chester, near the Welsh-English border next to Wrexham. The fact that the same Cornovii tribe founded Wroxeter and Wreklin now confirms my suspicions that Wrexham was one of their findings. As both Wrexham and the Leahy Coat use the shepherd-staff symbol, I would suggest that Lusitanians (i.e. the Lyssam) were in Wrexham. At the website below, the staffs (called "crooks") can be seen in the Arms of Hitchen, and of that symbol we can read: "The crooks allude to farming and agricultural interests, while the fleece recalls to old woollen industry." In other words, there is a fleece on the two staffs, and that in my mind is a symbol of the Pelops bloodline, not the wool industry.
Deva was on the Dee river, and in fact the two terms were related to the goddess of that river. Note that John Dee, the Rosicrucian spy of queen Elizabeth I, was the (co)founder of the New-Atlantis cult...that sought to make America the new Atlantis. Chester is smack , and smacks of Castor, son of Leda and Menelaus. Answers.com reports that Deva was also called "Castra Devana."
It was last night (the night before writing the paragraph above) when I found a red triple chevron symbol belonging to the Du Plessis family. Asking myself (last night) what that surname might trace back to, I thought Pollux, brother of Castor. With further thought, the term evokes the major myth term, Pallas, "the son of Lycaon and founder of the Arcadian town of Pallantion" (evokes Plantagenet). The Pallas-Lykaon connection is affirmed where "Pelasgus" (with Meliboea as wife!) was the father of Lykaon. Pelas also comes to mind, no doubt the same as Pallas, for Pelas was a Phrygian peoples (of Eneti) who moved to Elis smack beside Arcadia.
Also, Pylos of Messenia, also beside Arcadia, could have been the same peoples, probably the Pelasgians: "The earliest inhabitants of Messenia are said to have been Pelasgians and Leleges." I would connect Pelasgians with Belus (father of Aigyptus and Danaus), for he depicted the Pelusiac river...and doesn't that river fit "Pelasgi" perfectly?! I just saw that equation as I was writing, and it is verified where Pelasgus was married to Meliboea, while the Egyptian rulers from Greece were from Euboea! Therefore, I would strongly suggest that Pelasgians of Greece put forth the Nile-delta pharaohs in the first place, and that these Egyptians later fled back to the nest of Pelasgus in Argos and Messenia. Indeed, when Danaus got back to Argos, the ruler of the city who took him in as refugee was "Pelasgus."
Now as the Great Seal of the United States includes the "Coeptis" clue, connecting the Seal's creators to Aigyptus, my theory wherein I connect Laus Dio to Menelaus has more punch in this: "In the Homeric poems eastern Messenia is represented as under the rule of Menelaus of Sparta."
I'll now keep an eye out for connection of Pelas/Pylos/Pallas to the Du Plessis surname. It may be that the "sis" ending is from the "Pelusiac" term. At some point, the lords of Plessis castle were Grimoults/Grimbalds (as early as Grimoult du Plessis, died 1047), and these may have been of the Genoan ruler, Grimaldo (patriarch of Grimaldi clan), ambassador of emperor Barbarossa, a Hohen. It's probably not a coincidence that Hohens use red and white checks while Grimaldis use red and white diamonds; that is, both families might be related to the Plessis' red triple chevron on white background. My tasks are to find whether the Plessis symbol connects with the triple chevron of Wales, and if either chevron family was at the root of the red and white on the flag of the United States. Remember, the red and white of the English flag derives from the Genoan "St. George" flag.
Did "Genoa" have anything to do with the Cunedda/Gwynedd peoples? I should add here that the Gwent region figures importantly as part of the domain ruled by the Morgannwg bloodline of Iestyn ap Gwrgant (white triple chevron on red field). Gwent was in extreme south-east Wales, beside Morgannwg (see ancient map of Wales. To these terms I'll add for your speculation the Plantagenet dynasty of England...from the Claro kings of England!
Julie sent an email asking me to read an article (by Carol Miller) on Amrit, a city of Syria. The term is important enough if it was an Amorite center; it brought to mind Emerita of Spain which I had only come across the day before. Coincidence? Carol Miller wrote (square brackets mine):
"Or possibly Amrit was a dominion of those intrepid Amorites...who had already founded a chain of kingdoms in Mari, in Babylon, in Terqa, Ebla, Ugarit and Byblos [root of the Babel surname?], among many others...A god Amarr?, gifted with great powers of persuasion, frequently occurred in personal names and on the characteristically Mesopotamian cylinder seals, often holding a crook or staff [zowie!]. He was the essence of the Amorite mystique..."
The crossed crooks/staffs were part of the Leahy and Wrexham Coats, but then I have found that they are symbols of various abbeys as well. In the description of the Wrexham Arms, where the crooks are called "crosiers," we read this: "The crossed crosiers common to the arms of both former Wrexham authorities, represent [Cisterian] Valle Crucis Abbey..."
Cisterians were break-aways from Benedictine monks; a major branch of the latter were of the Oxford Movement, "a loose affiliation of High Church Anglicans, most of them members of the University of Oxford, who sought to demonstrate that the Church of England was a direct descendant of the Christian church established by the Apostles...also called Puseyites (usually disparagingly) after one of their leaders, Edward Bouverie Pusey, Regius Professor of Hebrew at Christ Church, Oxford."
Christ Church was the center of English Zionism in the 19th century, wherein Anglicans founded the Bishopric of Jerusalem (1842) in partnership with Hohen-based Prussia. The Apostolic movements that spawned the false-Christian activities of Pentecostalism, and the pre-tribulation-rapture cult of Henry Drummond, were of the same Zionist vein. Rosicrucians had strong fingers in the Anglican church and Oxford at the time. At the very time that the Oxford Movement was underway, the Catholic Apostolic Church (founded 1830) was setting up 12 apostles across Europe by which to rule all of Europe in the name of Israel (i.e. Europe = Israel!). In the meantime, this same machine started to roll the wheels of Zionist...that soon succeeded with Rothschild-of-London aid.
In closing, I thought I'd show the Pusey Coat, because it's four red bars on white may be a variation of the Washington Coat's two red bars on white.
