Son's of Zeus
In Response To: Commiting Ramesside? ()

Mr. Pope,

Tracy just informed me that the school in Orlando was called Dr. Phillips High School. She remembers it from a visit to Universal Studios and something about the filming Super Boy there.

A Senior Project is much on the lines of an Eagle Project in the Boy Scouts. You are allowed to pick your subject matter, which can be modified when required, family and friends are encouraged to get involved and you have 9 months to complete it. Presentation, uniqueness, research and effort are more important than the correctness of the project. Please keep in mind that this is English IV.

But back to the project it self.

One connection could be to Maya/Mahu/Mehy who was Kings Scribe and Overseer of the Treasury. He is said to be in the family of Ramose and Amenhotep the Wise.

The following information indicates that Mehy was the older brother of Ramses II.

Nearly a century ago, in 1899, James Henry Breasted identified a figure in the Karnak
reliefs as the older brother of Ramses the Great and the first-born son of Seti.

This figure appears to have been chiseled out of the Libyan battle scene by Ramses
II who then inserted himself into the relief. Breasted designated this
nameless older brother of Ramses as "X." At that time he concluded that the
battle relief consisted of 3 layers:

1. The original scene and text with no princes;
2. The insertion by Seti's oldest son of himself;
3. The erasure of the oldest son by Ramses II and his insertion of his
own name.

Breasted, James Henry, "Ramses II and the Princes in the Karnak Reliefs of Seti I," ZAS 37 1899 130-139).

that the male in the
chariot was the heir to the throne at the designation of the current king, the
same conclusion Breasted had arrived at regarding figure "X" and French
Egyptologist Pascal Vernus had concluded in 1992 once that mysterious figure
had been identified as Mehy(Maya).

(Vernus, Pascal, Chants d'amour de l'Egypte antique, Paris: Imprimerie nationale Editions, 174 n.10.)

In Karnak, on the north wall of the Great Hypostyle Hall of the Temple of Amun, the figure of Seti I killing a Libyan is flanked by figures which originally represented the military official Mehy. the succession of Horemheb by Ramses I was anything but "normal" by the standards of the XVIIIth Dynasty. (MURNANE, William J., The Kingship of the Nineteenth Dynasty: a Study in the Resilience of an Institution, in: Ancient Egyptian Kingship, 185-217. (fig., ill.)

But the icings on the cake would be to show how Akhenaten/Moses existed at the time when Ramses II was a Phara in Egypt. Pharaoh in Hebrew is Par, thus Paramesse could simply mean King Ramses and not Ramses I.

But in the case of Akhenaten, he was a king of kings and thus Ramses II would have worked for him. Having 12 sub-kings seemed to be common in those days.

Moving on we are now debating the issue of the two Babylons, the one in Egypt vs. the one in Persia. Babylon on the Nile was built by the Persians in 525 BC and is said to be the early (old) Cairo and built across from Heliopolis, "City of the Sun" or Iunu.

Could Iunu be equal to the Anu we read in King Tuts cartouche?
Could the 9 bows we see on King Tuts burial seal be equal to Ennead?

Egyptians believed in a family of nine gods. This family became known as the Great Ennead, from the Greek word ennea, meaning nine. The nine gods of the Great Ennead were Atum, Shu and Tefnut, Geb and Nut, Osiris, Isis, Nephthys, and Horus.
