Gideon Disrespected
In Response To: Re: The Greek Gideon ()

I was in no way suggesting that they were one and the same.

However, the number 300 alone begs a comparison. Gideon (a.k,a. Jerubbaal/Mamre/Agag), whose Egyptian identity was Tao II, was also of the "Judah" (Leonine) type. In his "good old age" he was shown no kindness but rather brutally killed despite his heroic victory on behalf of "Israel" against "Eastern" hordes. Granted, we don't learn about the gruesome death of Gideon from the Book of Judges. Even so, there is sufficient reason to conclude that the Greek resistance leader in question identified with the earlier Gideon and accepted the fatalistic outcome that went with that identification.

In addition to the relevant book chapters (10, 11), see the following posts:
