Solon is definitely of the Noah/Solomon type. It would be interesting to try linking Solon and other early Classical Greek figures with the Near Eastern royal court. For example, could Perseus correspond to one of the princes of Egypt named Pa-Nehesy, an epithet of Set/Levi (Gk. Perseus/Apollo)? Could Pelops really be an Egyptian Joseph/Japheth/Peleg figure, such as Piye/Pi-ankhy (a.k.a. Sargon the Great)?
