I am convinced that Daphne the dolphin, who was also Echidna the snake woman (i.e. a snake below her leg-less torso), depicted the same as mythical Melusine who was sometimes a snake-woman but at other times given a fish tail. Melusine was portrayed as a European peoples, and because magic rings were attributed to her, Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" and the similar works are suspect as characterizing Melusine in mythic-style code.
Cracking several of Tolkien's major codes is the theme in this chapter. I think he knew more about the movements that took place in Britain than I do at present, wherefore I'm eager to break his codes. I have cracked Tolkien, in a single day, and can report to you that he was depicting Satan's Rosicrucian cult. As always with myth writers, their joy is to keep the secrets of the dragon cult while they write, but, as always, they give the secrets away by writing. Consider this:
It is not mere coincidence that the first three rings were given to the Elven-kings. They were the favorites and the first race created by the Gods and when they looked skyward the dark canopy of the heavens was studded with stars...Themselves they called the Quendi...Tolkien writes that the Elves remain until the end of time...they will live for 10,000 centuries and then they will be called to the halls of Mandos in Valinor."
This would have disclosed nothing to me had I not discovered less than a week ago that the dragon line included a Mantius (son of Melampus) and a Manto, both depicting Mandaean Avars. Recall from the previous chapter that Manto was the child of Daphne's father, Tiresias. If other Tolkien terms allude to Mandaean Avars and to Melampus' Pisidian bloodline, then it's safe to conclude that Tolkien's story centers on those peoples (my feelings already are that Rosicrucians look to Mandaeans as their very heart). For if Tolkien makes Mandos the supreme place for his elves, then the elves must be the Mandaean Avars/Iberi and their branches.
I knew nothing of elfish Mandos until the previous chapter had been half written...until after I had connected Manto and Mantius to Mandaeans. What is more satisfying is that I had, over the past few years, implied nervously that Veres were from Avars (Melusine is almost-certainly a Vere peoples), based only on the similarity of terms. And only yesterday did I find that Tolkien calls the elves, "Avari," in that very part of Pictish Scotland where Veres had ruled! Yes, I kid you not.
The "Quendi" term (that the Elf peoples called themselves) looks like a "cwen" term = woman = Amazons. But the term also evokes Gwynedd. Yes, no doubt, for Gwynedd was western Atlantis. The conclusion is simple, that since Gwynedd derived from the Veneti, and the Veneti from the Heneti of Asia Minor, the elves were just those peoples. The Heneti/Eneti were ruled by mythical Pelops (Pel-Opis?), and he went to rule Pisa (Elis), if that shows the Pisidian roots of the elves.
Tolkien turns the worst people of all ages, the willing of Satan, into "elves" probably for the reason that they were Albanians. It's another example of how things have fallen together for me in this book that just before coming to this Tolkien topic, I had traced Albanians to Dacians, and then (thanks to Greenway7 writing to me at just the right time) I learned that Dacians became the Albiorix and Caturix tribes of British-based Teutates.
Can it be a coincidence that Tolkien included, among his three branches of elves, the Tatyar branch named after the elf, Tata (and his wife, Tatie)? Half of these became Avari, and half went to Ireland, according to Tolkien; in Ireland, Tolkien calls them "Noldorin" rather than "Avari." What's more, the half that went to Ireland lived first on Rothesay...very important to my writings because it is now the island of Bute. One wonders if these Tatyars were not so-named due to being from the mount Olympos I mentioned earlier, also called mount "Tahtali." On the one hand I am tempted to view them as the Tuatha de Danann, and yet on the other hand I see that they are associated with Scandinavia. The Teutons (and Teutates) definitely come to mind, which may not have been the same as the Tuatha de Danann.
Not many months ago I had traced the mythical characters depicting Pisidians (e.g. Salmoneus, Sisyphus) to Elamites, while the Tolkien website above roots the elves in Elamites. Aeolus of Greek myth had put forth many (Alan?) "children," but it was with Enarete that I claimed he put forth Greeks of Elamite descent (e.g. Salmoneus). Since I tied Enarete to Nerthus (Mother Earth) of the Saxon cult, who is easily deciphered as "earth," it gives me reason to decipher Tolkien's earth, "Arda," as the Enarete/Nerthus bloodline.
But the website then goes and does what is mindlessly done by more and more arrogant writers: ties the elves of Satan to the Biblical God. There is a growing army of naive/deluded Freemasons more than willing to pass such ideas on to the world of Christianity, and if at any time I sound bitter toward Freemasonry, that's the sort of thing I'll claim as my justification. If Tolkien buffs haven't realized that the "good guy" elves are, in the real world, Satanic to the core, it's an excellent example of how these types work in disguising the dark sides of their bloodlines while portraying them as forces of good.
The above website actually ties the elf people to the Veres, the same family bunch who claim to this day to be protectors of the Dragon bloodline. And we read this (brackets not mine):
"Here was a true kingly line of the Elven Race, and it was for this reason the Oberon (a variant of Aubrey/Abrey, the historical Elf King)..."
It is no secret that "Aubrey" is a sacred Vere term, but those who have read the previous chapter know that Avars were "Obri in Rus’ chronicles and Abaroi or Varchonitai in Byzantine sources." Note the "Varchonitai" alternative, that it reduces "Avar" to "Var."
The website ties the elves to an Alba element like so: "The Elven Race of the Albigens performed this ancient ritual of the Shining Ones, also. The ceremony was conducted in the mist of early dawn in the depths of Windsor Forest..." Understand that "Albigens" is a fictitious peoples and yet code for the real Albigenses (of France) who derive from the (real) Albocensii of Illyrian Albania. I would like to add here my hunch, that Windsor in England derives from the Gwynedd and/or Veneti.
Is it another coincidence that the Tolkiens put forth written works called, "The Silmarillion"? Wouldn't that be the Solymi Pisidians in code? The story is secretly about a people (the Silmarils) having three sacred branches (depicted as jewels) deriving from a main branch called "Silima." You heard it here first; I doubt that anyone outside of the Illuminati has ever tied the Silima to the Solymi, but as I just discovered the Solymi not much more than a week ago, here I find myself revealing Tolkien's secret to the world, and even to Freemasons who had no inkling whatsoever.
There's more, for another Tolkien website defines the term: "Súlimo means Lord of the Winds." And so I'll say, in keeping with my understanding that the Solymi/Pisidians descended from Aeolus, that the Aeolus of western Italy was kin to the Aeolus who was made the god of the four winds (suggesting a peoples that spread far everywhere), not to mention that this latter Aeolus was son of Poseidon = Pisidian. I'm suggesting that Tolkien was deliberately implying the Solymi line of Aeolus with "Sulimo." Tolkien terms important peoples with Alan-like terms, as for example "Aule," the creator/inventor god who is partner with "Sauron" (evoking Sauromatian Alans).
Tolkien's Silmarils are connected to "two trees of Valinor," one called "Telperion" and the other "Laurelin." Knowing now that "Tel" refers to Delphi and therefore to Daphne in Delphi, wouldn't "Laurelin" be codeword for the fact that Daphne was turned (in Greek myth) into a laurel tree? Sure. The "perion" ending is still up in the air, but may conform to Perieres (son of Aeolus and Enarete), and to his son, Aphareus.
I'm about to explain in more detail that "Telperion" depicted Telephus of Greek myth, perfectly logical because Telephus was the son of Hercules while Hercules conquered western Atlantis (something that Tolkien must have known).
Another website on the same Tolkien myths says that "Avallone was the city on Tol Eressea, the Haven of the Eldar. It was founded by the Teleri during their long stay there, before they left Tol Eressea for Alqualonde [in Aman]..."
Could Eressea be Erethlyn, Wales? In my mind, yes, but in Tolkien's mind it must have been the "Erytheia" of Hercules myth (Geryon's home), and I do note that the "Teleri" must be Hercules himself coming to Wales, as his son, Telephus. This tends to show that Tolkien described the Hercules Danaans as "Tel" terms, as did the Greeks, but who were the Tels in the Greek theater?
The Greek city of Pythos was re-named Delphi, likely after Delos, the sacred island of Apollo inhabited by Carians and Lydians = the Ladon-dragon Pisidians. As Apollo and Daphne were both symbolized/viewed as dolphins as per their associations with Delphi, it occurs to me just now that the fish symbol may have arisen from the similarity of "Pisidian" to "pisces." As Poseidon was made god of the sea, it would appear that Pisidians were indeed the sea-faring portion of the dragon cult...which then defines Atlantis as sea-faring Pisidians. In that Pisidians were in fact on Crete and Rhodes, it supports those who identify Grecian Atlantis as Crete and/or Rhodes.
It is my opinion that Homer anciently wrote about Delos under codeword, "Delas," the inventor of bronze (a copper-tin alloy). After you read the following Homer quote, I'll explain how Delas depicted Tolkien's Tel peoples while Daphne depicted Damnameneus:
"Kelmis, again, and Damnameneus, the first of the Daktyloi Idaioi, discovered iron in Kypros; but bronze-smelting was discovered by Delas, another Idaian, thought Hesiod calls him Skythes."
I'm assuming here that I was correct in identifying Daphne as those who named Devon(shire) of Cornwall. Since Devon(shire) is said to have been founded by the historical Dumnoni, they must surely have been mythical codeword, Damnameneus. Delas is distinguished from Damnameneus as the inventor of a different metal, yet the whole of it tips me off to identifying Tolkiens' Teleri peoples as the Greek Danaans known to have built at least one city (Lindos) on Rhodes, for it can't be a coincidence that the metal-inventing Telchines called Rhodes their home.
[Update: Although I had instantly seen that the "Tol" in Tolkien's name evoked the "Tol" used in his "Tol Eressea," and that it was similar to "Tel," it was not until the day after writing the above paragraph that I saw the near-match between "Tolkien" and "Telchine." This is a testimony to my being a little soft of brain.]
In the following quote, you might like to view "Damnameneus" as Daphne (square brackets not mine):
"The spiteful Telkhines also came to the Indian War...Lykos came, shaking with his long arm a very long spear. Skelmis came, following Damnameneus, guiding the seachariot of his father Poseidon. These were wanderers who had left Tlepolemos’s land [Rhodes] and taken to the sea, furious daimones of the waters..." (Nonnus, Dionysiaca 14.17)
I should first mention that this Aryan invasion into India may have produced the eastern branch of Mandaean Avars in the first place. But my point is to identify the "Tl/Tel" terms as the Telchines of Rhodes, who are known to have been a Poseidon peoples...that I will therefore view as Pisidians. "Tlepolemos" (looks like Tel-Ptolemy) is a term serving as evidence that Telchines ended up in western Atlantis, for Tlepolemus was made the son of Hercules (e.g. in the Iliad), wherefore one has no problem equating him with Telephus. The Tlepolemus-Telchine equation is easily concluded as follows: "...athletic contests held on the island of Rhodes and named after Tlepolemos, son of Herakles and the founder of Rhodes." http://www.press.jhu.edu/books/nagy/PHISM/chapter5.html
Note that Perieres' wife, Gorgophone, gave birth to Aphareus, so that Tolkien's "Telperion" tree may just depict those very Gorgons. I suspect that Daphne (the other tree) and fish-tailed Dagon of Dor (near Joppa, Gorgophone's birthplace) are one, which, if true, could root Daphne back to Daghestan (homeland of Avars) and forward to the Daktyloi and possibly the Dacians too. In that Tolkien makes the Teleri and Tatie/Tatyars of Scotland into "Avari," my Dacian-come-Teutate theory (made before I knew Tolkien codes) now becomes more interesting if Daphne's fish-tail symbol did indeed depict a Dagon-to-Dacian migration. That Tolkien then calls the Tatyars "Noldor" in Ireland may then connect to Dagon's Israeli home, Dor.
As the Danaans of Rhodes built Lindos, is it a coincidence that Tolkien calls his ancient Teleri elves, "Lindar"? He also says that, upon coming to Aman (which I identify as Ireland) from Tol Eressea, the Teleri became the "Falmari" sea elves, which I would peg as the Fomorians (of Ireland), also "Formorians," who were in fact a sea-faring peoples. As the Valar were first to Ireland, before the elves arrived, and since it is agreed by all/most online articles on the topic that Fomorians were first to Ireland, I could surmise that the Valar and the Teleri were one and the same peoples, except that the Valar were the first Fomorians into Ireland, and followed later by the Teleri. One Wikipedia article claimed that in Tolkien's earlier work, the Teleri were the first elves into Aman. That the Fomorians were Daphne peoples is given more support where Wikipedia reports that Fomorians "are sometimes said to have had the body of a man and the head of a goat." This points to the Cutha = Cadusii peoples.
The Danann finger points to the Dinaites. One website (below) inadvertently connects them to the Cadusii-branch of Daphne when it calls Dinaites, "Cuthaean colonists" (i.e. of the Cutha). But behold that Ezra 4:9 reads as follows: "...the Dinaites, and the Apharsathchites..."!! Surely mythical Aphareus (son of Perieres) depicts the Apharsath-chites...wherefore Tolkien's "Telperion" comes that close to being identified as a Dinaite-Aphar alliance evolving into a major arm of western Atlantis.
It is my opinion that these historical peoples listed in Ezra 4:9 are so dragon-line important that Illuminatists have managed to keep the terms out of some/many Bibles versions. Therefore, I will quote the proper reading of the verse for those whose Bibles don't have it:
"...then wrote Rehum the chancellor, and Shimshai the scribe, and the rest of their companions, the Dinaites, and the Apharsathchites, the Tarpelites, the Apharsites, the Archevites, the Babylonians, the Shushanchites, the Dehaites, the Elamites..."
The Dehaites are the Dahae that named Daghestan, though the verse appears to locate them (at first, anyway) in Elamite regions, for they are listed beside the Elamites. I don't think I'll distinguish the Avars of Daghestan from the Dehae who named it; I would view Daphne as the Dahae in that the "Deha-ite" term was Biblically "Dehava"...easily modifying to "Devon(shire)." The Apharsites that are distinguished from the Apharsathchites may have been two branches of Avars, perhaps Avars versus Kabars. Time may tell.
"Lindon" (the home of the Lindars) was made the most-western piece of "Middle Earth," and I would therefore translate that term as "At-Lantis." As I have deciphered "Middle-Earth" as the England-Scottish continent (i.e. excluding Ireland), Lindon becomes western Scotland and Wales. Important to my seeking the identity of the green dragon, the Landars of Lindon were also encoded, " Laiquendi, or Green Elves."
Since I have identified the green Greeks as peoples of Caunus (in Caria), the Conn terms that migrated to Connacht (Ireland) ought to prove to be the green dragon of Ireland, as for example St.-Patrick green becoming a pseudo-Christian symbol of Ireland. These green peoples became the Fir Bolgs and then Picts (Vere blood), and in keeping with my deduction that Bolgs and/or Picts ventured north into Scandinavia to form Danes and Swedes, Tolkien has a grey-elf branch of green-elf Teleri that became the kingdom of "Doriath"...what I'll tentatively peg as the kingdom of the Scandinavian god, Thorri (who came to rule Gotland), who I identified (some months ago) as Dorian Greeks and/or Dor Dagonites.
As mythical Gorgophone was born in Joppa, Israel, her son, Aphareus (i.e. historical Apharsites) is shown to have moved from Chaldea to Israel (long before the 8th-century-BC wave of migration touched on in Ezra 4:9). This is the deep secret of Illuminatists, that their fathers passed through Israel before the Israelites had arrived from Egypt (i.e. before 1500ish BC); it's a deep secret that must be kept at all costs because Illuminatists wish to convince the world that they were the Israelites themselves, and that their Zeus (i.e. Dagon) was YHWH.
A Dagon-Solymi connection is not difficult to make, for Zeus was both Dagon and the god, Zeus-Solymos. Moreover, Pisidians may be equated with sea- and fish-based Poseidon for the same reason that Dagon was given a fish tail. Having identified Zeus as the Dorians in that way, especially as "Dor" seems a version of "Taurus," note that the queen of Tolkien's Doriath was made "Meliath," what could Melusine important. In Greek myth, Doris was viewed as a sea-woman term; the Merovingian sea-bull symbol comes to mind.
Note that Tolkien myth called the earth, "Ambar/Imbar." I think this was (or at least included) Cambria in what is now Denmark, part of which was also Gotland. The "Noldor" sect of Tatyars (Teutons of Thorri Gotland?) were meshed with several terms evoking Finland. Moreover, the Noldorin are associated with "Quenya," a term I would identify with Kvenlanders of Sweden and Finland, who were situated to the north of the Svi.
My suspicion is that "Cven" and "Van" are identical "female/femme" terms. The Noldor elves are made associated/allied with (but distinguished from) the superior "Vanyar" elves, which I would confidently identify as the mythical Vanir-branch Scandinavians, which I only recently discovered to be the historical Cvenlanders. Noldar then becomes identified as Odin and his Aesir-branch Scandinavians...if indeed Noldor depicts Gotlanders, for the Aesir originated in Goths.
The elves were split into the three tribes: Minyar/Vanyar, Tatyar/Noldor, and Lindar/Teleri. The fact that Tolkien uses different terms for the same peoples is of great help for cracking his codes. Collectively, the three elf tribes went to live among the "Valar" higher beings, in the land of Aman. Prior to entering Aman, while still back in Scotland, the Vanyar were the Minyar, and those who know their Greek myth will know exactly who the Minyae were.
Tolkien seems to identify the Vanyar with the Danes, for he makes the Vanyar ruled by Ingwë (no doubt depicting the Ynglings/Ingaevones that produced the Danes and Swedes). Ingwë's home is at Taniquetil (Dani-Cati?), the tallest mountain, no doubt depicting the Manannan-branch of Danann peoples because it (the mountain's summit) is made the throne of the great "Manwe." Moreover, this mountain belongs to the "Ainu," code for the Celt goddess, Anu/Danu (Manwe and the Valars were Ainu).
Already one can get the impression that this mountain equates with mount Olympus in the Greek theater, and that Manwe is the chief of Olympic gods, Zeus. It's telling that Tolkien also uses, "Manwë Súlimo," for that tells us of his view wherein the Manannan Danann originate in the Solymi (who by the way descended from Manes). Moreover, the summit of Taniquetil is made "Ilmarin," an "s"-less variation of "Silmaril," as for example (I think) "Olympos" is a take on "Solymos."
Manwe Sulimo is moreover encoded as "Mânawenûz," which looks like Tolkien had a rather simpleton/childish day of it when attempting to disguise Mana-Venus = Mana-Veneti or Mana-Aphrodite. Manwe's wife, Varda, goes by the following versions that tend to reveal her Avar blood: Avradî, Barathi, Baradis. One can only wonder at this point if these terms did not depict the roots of the Scottish Bard surname (see the green griffin on their Crest) and/or the Bert surname (see green ring on their Crest!!). I also recall that the Italian Bert Coat uses a griffin.
The sister of Danae (ancestress of the Greek Danaans) was "Evarete," evoking Tolkien's alternative terms for Varda (Avradî, Barathi, Baradis). If this makes the Berts and/or Bards (not to mention the Pollocks) of Britain descend from Evarete, so be it. The implication is that the Danaans passed through Abruzzo/Sabina Italy, for Varda was a Maia. In the next chapter, I'll introduce my first-ever finding of a "Danaan" people-group in Italy.
Again, keep in mind the cornucopia symbol on the English Bert Coat (at Bert link above)...i.e. that should trace back to the Sabina dragon cult. In Tolkien's myth, the Sabina must figure in as his "Maia" characters; Ingwe was leader of Tolkien's Maia! That exclamation mark is for the realization just now that the Sabina became the Yngvi, what agrees with a trace of the Sabina to the Suebi of Sweden. That is, Tolkien's Maia were the Suebi...wherefore he knew that the Suebi traced back to mount Maiella of Abruzzo...i.e. to the daughter of Atlas. What's more, it could be that the Maia were Danaan specifically, explaining why the Yngvi are known to have put forth both the Danes and Svi (obviously, the Suebi were the Svi).
It is now understood by me why Tolkien has the Teleri elves marrying the Maia (in Scotland), for the Tel terms correspond to "atl," a word that came to mean "sea," but also a term that is borrowed from "Atlas." I'm suggesting that Telchines were the Atlas peoples, and that "Atlas" and "Atlantis" were Tel terms with a capital "A" on their fronts. Remove the capital, and one gets "Telas" from "Atlas, which evokes "Delas" the inventor of bronze. It also squares with Delphi the dolphin, probably from "deluvian." Indeed, as "deluvian" is from "deluge," doesn't the latter term provide the "c" in "Telchine"?
Aman was perhaps all of Ireland. That Tol Eressea, an island, is placed offshore of Aman to its east, as well as per other clues, I think I will identify it as ancient Rothesay...which may certainly have been a settlement of the Erethlyn Danann since a city of Rhos was located next to Erethlyn. The Tolkien mythographers placed the Enchanted Isles to the east of Eressea, which then make the two islands of Great Cumbrae and Little Cumbrae good candidates (click map at http://www.isle-of-bute.com/ or see here).
Taniquetil is among the"Pelóri" mountains, which term could certainly signify the sea-side kingdoms of Balor = ruler of the Fomorians. Aman is said to be surrounded on three sides by the Pelori range, a picture harmonizing well with the geography of Ireland: "A ring of coastal mountains surrounds low central plains. The highest peak is Carrauntuohill (Irish: Carrán Tuathail..."
Hmm, as Taniquetil is made the tallest mountain in the myth, might it have been Carran Tuathail? But even if not (though I think maybe-yes), see how "Tuathail" evokes "Tahtali" of Solymi and Carian realms. As Tahtali was also Mount Olympos, wouldn't mythical Taniquetil carry the same theme: the mount of the Bret gods? Carran Tuathail is at the southern tip of Ireland, wherefore see at the following website that Lug peoples inhabited southern Ireland (as well as north Ireland). Lug (a major Celt god) was not only the son of Balor's daughter, but in regards to his spear symbol was made "Samildanach" (awfully close to Tolkien's "Silmaril"). As it's known that Lug was half Fomorian, half Danann, I would interpret the "Samil" portion of "Samil-Danach" as the Fomorian part. Balor was portrayed with one eye, a symbol for the third eye of Masonry, and so it is that Zeus was given a third eye (in Phoenicia, Baal was Molech was Taurus was Zeus) .
Surely the spear symbol of Lug coincides with Nonnus' code-studded statement, "Lykos came, shaking with his long arm a very long spear" (i.e. Lug and Lycus are the same Lycian peoples). Surely it's not a coincidence that Tahtali/Olympos is in Lycia.
Another island, "Numenor," which I identify as Arran (beside Bute), is said to be between Aman and the west coast of Middle Earth, for which reason I would identify the latter as Scotland, Wales or perhaps all of Britain (as being in the middle between Ireland and the European mainland). Numenor's fate is a part of the written work, Akallabeth, which Tolkien fans translate to "Atalanta." I would take that to mean the Amazon (and Calydonian) goddess of the Argo ship, recalling that I linked Argonauts, independent of Tolkien lore, to Argyll and the surrounding west-Scottish islands/shores (Bute and Arran included).
I should mention that Azerbaijan was "Arran/Aran" previous to being called the latter. The term may have been a version of Charran = Haran. Arran was northern Albania!
Tolkien myth tells a clue wherein a sacred pillar on a central mountain of Numenor could be seen from Tol Eressea. That's hint of the nearness of Numenor to Eressea, and indeed Arran is less than 10 miles from Rothesay. The statement, "...only the Eagles of Manwe were seen circling over the summit [of Numenor]." is telling i.e. the island of Numenor belonged to the Manwe Danann.
The summit was called "Meneltarma/Minultarik," and the first ruler of the island was Elros, also called "Tar-Minyatur." These terms, especially the latter, help to give away the identity of Manwe as the Greek Minyae (i.e. the Argonauts were Minyae!). Moreover, for reasons to be explained in the next chapter, the "Minyatur" term refers to the Minotaur of Crete. In fact, as a sneak preview, let me tell early that the Manwe peoples turn out to be Daedalus of Crete, a term smacking of "Tahtali."
Look at how the "Meneltarma" term uses what could refer to the Termessian Solymi = Thermodon Amazons, while it's "Minultarik" counterpart uses what could refer to the Tarchon-branch Etruscans (Jason and the Minyae were Etruscans). As Etruscans were founders of Rome, note that Tolkien places "Romenna" on Numenor.
The "Elros" code (first ruler of Numenor) may be for Alan-Ros = the Roxolani (whom I think were depicted by the god, Rig). The third ruler was "Tar-Amandil," what seems like a Mandaean term. The tenth ruler was queen "Tar-Telperien," this meaning (apparently) that one of the two sacred trees (Telperion) depicted Numenor Argonauts.
Although the two trees were located in Valinor, which is the Vala realm in Aman/Ireland, the above makes clear that the trees (as a people-group) were also on Numenor. Indeed, on that island there was also the tree, "Laurinque," which closely echoes the second Valinor tree, Laurelin. This Ireland-Arran connection is deduced by the similarity of terms, but moreover explains the elsewhere-cited escape of Irish Danann (with the defeat of Manannan and Lug) to the Isle of Mann and other west-Scotland locations.
The peoples of Numenor were dubbed, "Dunedain (singular: Dunadan...". The island was said to be shaped like a five-pointed star must be ruled out as geographically-true, for Tolkien would not have been so revealing as that (i.e. it would be too easy to find an island shaped like that). Rather, the pentagram symbol is more-likely his only allusion, a symbol special to the Satanists that are his central topic. Rosslyn Chapel was studded with pentagrams, and with that keep in mind that Elros was made the first leader of Numenor. The same that named Rothesay, and Erethlyn with nearby Rhos, come to mind.
The superior Vanyar elves were founded by "Imin" and "Iminyë," terms evoking the Minyae. Indeed, for Tolkien then made these the "Minyar," and because they were later the "Vanyar," one suspects that the Argonauts were in Scandinavia as the Cvenlanders/Vanir. If that's not enough, the fact that Jason's father was made "Aeson" tells that the Goths of Gotland (known to have founded the Aesir pantheon) were likewise from the Minyae Argonauts. The same that founded the Argyll region of Scotland, in other words, founded the two major branches of occult Scandinavians, Odin and Loki. The latter term was likely invented to record roots in the Lukki = Lycians.
There are ancient writings telling that the Argos ship, after it reached Colchis, sailed the rivers connecting the Black sea to the Baltic, then across Scandinavia, and then past Britain to the mouth of the Mediterranean; this didn't happen of course, but it does outline the migratory paths of certain Mino-Lycians. Every character on board the Argos ship depicted a peoples that took part in that migration.
The following quote attempts to explain the earliest settlements of Ireland aside from Tolkien lore (with my comments in square brackets):
From the author D. J. Conway (Ancient and Shining Ones) comes this description: 'The tribe of the Fomorians [the Valar] was on the scene long before any other races came to Ireland. However, the Fomors lived mainly in (by) the sea [Pelori sea-coasts all around Ireland]. The first outside race to invade Ireland was the race of Partholon [brother-tribe to Manwe, Tolkien's "Melkor"]; very little is known of them [though I know that they were Meleager's "son" from far-north Scotland and the Orkneys; I'll explain Meleager ties to these locations in the next chapter]. After 300 years of struggle against the Fomors, the Partholons died of an epidemic. Next came the race of Nemed [Numenor Minyae seize Ireland?] who also suffered from an epidemic. This time, though, some of them survived, only to be oppressed by the Fomors. Later came colonizers from Spain or Greece called the Fir Bolgs [Hercules/Teleri, Daphne i.e. Tolkien's two trees]. They were actually three tribes [perhaps Tolkien's three Silmaril jewels]; men of Domnu [Devonshire's' Dumnoni], men of Gaillion [Gauls/Wales?], and men of Bolg [Belgae]. They inter-married with the Fomors and held the country until the arrival of the Tuatha De Danann [Tolkien's Tatie elves?]'"
The website verifies that Milesians were "Milidh," characterizing my impression that the Melidu Armenians founded Miletus. This wave to Ireland needs to be distinguished from the Gael Milesians coming afterward.
Jason himself lived in Iolcos, near the important Greek city of Volos at the foot of mount Pelios...after which was named mythical Peleus, father of Achilles. Recall the tracing of Achilles to Connacht, Ireland (I'm not the only one who makes that trace). Might Tolkien have used "Vala(r)" to depict peoples of Volos?
When Plato said that Atlantis fell into the sea, it may have been mere code for the military fall of his bloodline in Britain...although I can see that infant killers could easily persuade the true God to literally swallow them whole in a geological disaster.
