Jews Are Further West than Carthage

Source: CARTHAGE (Jewish Encyclopedia) 1906 A.D. From the source, "  The city, called   ("New City") in native inscriptions (Lidzbarski, "Nordsemitische Epigraphik," i. 365), is mentioned in Jewish writings since Talmudic times only as   ("Ḳarthigini"), a name equivalent to the Byzantine form Kαρϑαγένη and in agreement with the Syriac (Payne Smith, "Thes. Syr." cols. 3744, 3765), the Greek form Kαρχηδών being found with the latter. Notwithstanding the peculiar form, perhaps chosen with reference to the founder Dido ( + γυνή, "Woman-City"), the Hebrew word certainly designates Carthage in Africa, not Cartagena in Spain...

These were both groups of black peoples of varying shades of brown and black hues and hair textures. Kyaneos and melas were used…

Cleodemus was the author of a history of the Jews in Greek, in which Jewish traditions…
