Sun Worship Amongst African Amazons

Sun Worship Amongst African Amazons

Source: The Amazons: Chapter VII: Amazons of Africa (Sacred Texts) 1910 A.D. From the African Amazon chapter of the source, "DIODORUS SICULUS, quoting Dionysius the historian, says that there was a prodigious race of Amazons who rose, flourished exceedingly, and disappeared long before the Trojan War--so long before, indeed, that their renown had been obscured by the newer glory of the Amazons of the Pontus. The more ancient race had its origin in Libya, that Africa which lay between Egypt and Ethiopia on the east, the Atlantic on the west, bounded on the north by the classic strip of Mediterranean…

Jews Are Further West than Carthage

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...

Romans Categorized Peoples by the Physical Appearance, Not By Parentage or ‘Blood’-Roman Perception of Mediterranean Phenotype was ‘albus or leukos’ (White) But Not Too White

Source: Roman Perceptions of Blacks (Virginia Tech University Libraries) 1993 A.D. From the source, "Abstract. Certain preconceptions about 'blacks' in predominantly 'white' societies have distorted modern visions of the ways in which Aethiopes were perceived in Roman society, resulting in much misinterpretation of the relevant texts. In Roman perceptions categories like black African, white, 'paleface' and swarthy were neither communities nor socially defined 'races' with ascribed group-statuses. Categorisation was determined by the physical appearance of the individual person, not by parentage or 'blood'...Wiesen saw this text as evidence of a Roman perception of blacks as natural inferiors of 'the white…
