Interesting as always, thanks. I was wondering, are you certain that "Solomon" was a composite of Amenhotep II and III? (Let's ignore Ramses II as an Usurper of Amenhotep III's fame, yes?)
I say this, because of a line in one of your articles that gave me great pause when I read it: I had never heard that name before.
And, your chart 16 shows the man I think you have shown is the *original* "Solomon." And guess where he is located on your chart? Right above Amenhotep II and III.
Zalmunneh. If that isn't Zal eh munn, I'll eat my hat!
Hyksos pharaoh Khyan. The guy that Andis Kaulins documents quite convincingly as also the first Moses. "Sobeke Msaf, Moses, the first one.
And, looking up bible passage online after reading your brief reference to his murder in that article I cited above.....guess what? He was riding a camel when he was murdered, along with his wife.
This camel? Had decorations of a silver moon and stars. You did say in the post that "laban" meant "white" referring to the moon?
Guess what? Khyan was a renowned temple builder! Guess what else? His reign was "30-40 years" according to Wikipedia.
Very little is known, or disclosed about this fellow. But, I am offering up "Zalmunneh" as Solomon. The *original.*
And, not sure I can agree "Queen of Sheba" was a mortal. I think she was "Sauska" aka Ishtar, a statue of whom was sent by Tushratta to his buddy Amenhotep III (twice!). Guarded by those pesky "Shepas" of Mittani...which I believe were Sherpas, mercenaries of the Armenian King Tushratta. "Mittani" my foot. Hurrian my foot, Cilician my foot, Phyrgian my foot, Sumerian my foot: these are all Aratta kings, Urartu (Akkadian) kings, Ararat (Hebrew) Kings: Armenian kings. Anthropology is on my side: their remains are categorized as "Armenoid." As are "Hebrew" remains found.
Tush of Aratta. His forefather's land.
The land of the Ia/Ea/Ya people: http://www.ancientanatolia.com/map03.htm
These folks were "Aryans." They migrated down all the way to India, turned around, and settled everything between the two lands....They stopped on the way through Iran, and founded the first kingdom: Elam. They were the Elamites. http://www.enotes.com/topic/Historical_powers#Hurrian_Kingdoms
Ever hear of Goblki Tepe, my friend? Guess where that is located? Within the ancient kingdom of Urartu/Aratta/Ararat.
These be some OLD hominid families, Charles.
Their main deity was a fellow named TaiSheba (TaiSub link on Wiki.) A storm god. His wife? Sauska. Aka Ishtar. In Hurrian, she was known as "Hepa."
She was literally the Queen of (Tai)Sheba. My take on it, anyway. Statue full of KA.
I favor Lab'Ayu as Lion Man, and that can only be one guy: Amenhotep III. Not "Ahab", not Aye", but rather that was the guy that was renowned for killing 100 lions before age 16 with arrows: Amenhotep III. The guy with lions decorating the Temple of Clytemenstra (the sex organ of Estra/Ester/Ishtar/Easter/Sausga/Sauka) in Mycenae. The one with a pyramid over entrance, and Amenhotep III and Tiye's cartouches in it. I am *guessing* he is also Shalmeneser III, the guy with the Lion wall in Babylon's Temple of Ishtar....
Read an interesting passage today that "Lab'ayu" supposedly "took the same path as Shalmeneser III" when he raided and conquered......(CIAS website on Amarna letters.)
Again, just my clumsy attempt at tying loose ends. Sorry if I am way off base....But.......
Got some more curious stuff on this ancient kingdom of Aratta, seemingly ignored by those of us doing this sleuthing, and I will share on a new comment thread.
