King Hiram’s Son: Ithobaal

King Hiram’s Son: Ithobaal

The Phoenician king of Byblos, Ahiram, also known in both biblical and Freemasonic history as King Hiram had a son named, Ithobaal (Ἰθόβαλος; Hebrew Ethbaal, Ishba’al, Latin – Ithóbalos, Εἰθώβαλος; Eithṓbalos – meaning with Baal).

In the bible, Ithobaal succeeded his father has the King of Tyre and the Sidonians and was the father of Jezebel who was the wife of the seventh king of Northern Israel Kingdom, Ahab. (IKi 16:31). The Jewish historian Josephus tells us he was formerly a priest of Astarte (Ashtoreth), consort of Baal, who usurped the throne and reigned over Tyre and Sidon for 32 years (Contra Apionem i.18.123).

Proof of his existence was found when in 2012, archaeologists working for Prof. Yosef Garfinkel of the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University and Saar Ganor of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) were excavating a burial site at Khirbet Qeiyafa. It was there they had discovered a 3,000-year-old clay jar with ancient Phoenician writing which shined a new light on this King’s true name, his family, and also their role in biblical history.

Three years later, in 2015, the scientists pieced together the ancient inscription on the jar which read;

“Ishba’al, son of Beda”.

The meaning they say is “man of Baal, son of Beda.”

The scientists are said to be puzzled about who this king said that only powerful people such as the ruling elite or priesthood had their names etched on pottery which suggests that a man of much importance in Judah used the jar to either store olive oil or wine.

According to Garfinkel and Ganor, “This is the first time that the name Eshba’al has appeared on an ancient inscription in the country. Eshba’al Ben Shaul, who ruled over Israel at the same time as David, is known from the Bible.

Eshba’al was murdered by assassins and decapitated and his head was brought to David in Hebron (2 Samuel 3–4). Inscription on the rim of the pottery It is interesting to note that the name Eshba’al appears in the Bible and now also in the archaeological record, only during the reign of King David, in the first half of the tenth century BC. This name was not used later in the First Temple period.

The correlation between the biblical tradition and the archaeological finds indicates this was a common name only during that period.”

They said, “The name Beda is unique and does not occur in ancient inscriptions or in the biblical tradition.”

However, I disagree with the researchers. In my own research, I have found that the name Beda and several different spelling of the same name have a long tradition both in the bible and in history.

For example, in the Scripture, we find a prophet of Baal named Obadiah who lived at the same exact time when King Ahab reigned and Jezebel.

This name Obadiah you will also find spelled many different ways such as Jehoiada, or in Greek as Abadias (ab-a-di’as), which I believe can be connected to Beda.

Proof of my theory can be easily found when searching scripture we discover in Kings, Obadiah with King Ahab and Jezebel.

So we have a real-life inscription of a Phoenician King found by modern scientists who is named Ishba’al, son of Beda who is also known as Ithobaal (Ἰθόβαλος; Hebrew Ethbaal,Ishba’al, Latin – Ithóbalos, Εἰθώβαλος; Eithṓbalos – meaning with Baal) and had a daughter named Jezebel who he gave to marry King Ahab of Northern Israel.

According to the researchers, the fact that the name Eshba’al was incised on a jar suggests that he was an important person. He was apparently the owner of a large agricultural estate and the produce collected there was packed and transported in jars that bore his name. This is clear evidence of social stratification and the creation of an established economic class that occurred at the time of the formation of the Kingdom of Judah.

Archaeologist believed he probably owned significant agricultural estates.

Saar Ganor, director of excavation at Khirbet Qeiyafa for the Israel Antiquities Authority, said: ‘We have found hundreds of jars in big cities across what was the Kingdom of Judah.

‘This is the only one to have an inscription.

‘For the jar to bear this man’s name, it suggests he was someone very special and important.

In my previous article, The World’s Oldest Curse: King Hiram’s Masonic Curse, I explained that that the oldest writing ever discovered was a curse written on the stone Sarcophagus of the Phoenician King Ahiram AKA King Hiram that was created by his son;

“Ishba’al, son of Beda”.

The inscription reads: Coffin which Ittobaal, son of Ahiram, king of Byblos, made for Ahiram, his father, when he placed him in the house of eternity . Now if a king among kings or a governor among governors or a commander of an army should come up against Byblos and uncovers this coffin, may the sceptre of his rule be torn away, may the throne of his kingdom be overturned, and may peace flee from Byblos!

The history relating to Ithobaal has been passed down to us by the Roman-Jewish historian Josephus’s whose work was derived from the Phoenician author Menander of Ephesus, in Against Apion i.18.

Menander mentions Ithobalus who Josephus on the authority of the Tyrian annals says in against Apion, i. 18. that Ethbaal, the king of Tyre, whose daughter Jezebel was Ahab’s queen, succeeded Hiram, the contemporary of Solomon.

Here it is said that the previous king, Phelles, “was slain by Ithobalus, the priest of Astarte, who reigned thirty-two years, and lived sixty-eight years; he was succeeded by his son Badezorus (Baal-Eser II), who lived forty-five years and reigned six. His son and successor, Margenus, lived thirty-two years and reigned nine. Pygmalion succeeded him, who lived fifty-six years and reigned forty-seven. In the seventh year of his reign, his sister, Dido, fled and built Carthage in Libya.’

Phelles was said to be the uncle of Ithobalus so he was of the same bloodline.

With that said, it is clear to me that “Ishba’al, son of Beda” is none other than Ithobaal (Ἰθόβαλος; Hebrew Ethbaal, Ishba’al, Latin – Ithóbalos, Εἰθώβαλος; Eithṓbalos) who in the Scripture is named Obadiah.

Cain was Father of the Phoenicians

Cain was Father of the Phoenicians

One of the most ancient Phoenician historians and a priest of Byblos, Sanchuniathon (Phoenician: 𐤎𐤊𐤍𐤉𐤕𐤍) had traced the ancestry of his people, the Phoenicians to Cain who was the eldest son of Adam.

The history of Sanchuniathon was compiled into three now lost works originally written in the Phoenician language which has reached us from the Greek translation in the early second century AD by Philo of Byblos who was employed by the Romans to record this sacred history in the time of Emperor Hadrian, according to the Christian bishop Eusebius.

One of the greatest scholars and historians of the seventeenth century, the French Samuel Bochart (1599–1667) had identified the Phoenicians as the Greek name of the people who in Hebrew are called Canaanites in his books, Geographia Sacra seu Phaleg et Canaan (Caen 1646) which exerted a profound influence on seventeenth-century Biblical exegesis.

Richard Cumberland (1631 – 1718) was an English philosopher, author, and Bishop of Peterborough also identified the Phoenicians as the lineage of Cain.

This fact of Phoenician’s as descendants of Cain and dwelling in the land of Canaan as been known for thousands of years.

For example, all the early Church Fathers identified Canaan with Phoenicia and Canaan which for many centuries, considered as names of the same country. This history is also found in the Bible in passages such as Exodus vi. 15. with Gen. xlvi. 10. and Exod. xvi. 33. with Josh. v. 12., in which passages, for the Hebrew words translated Canaanitish and land of Canaan, the Septuagint reads Phoenician and the country of Phoenicia.

The name Kenaan is preserved on a coin of Laodicea of the time of Antiochus Epiphanes, whereon Laodicea is styled “a mother city in Canaan,” ללארכא אם בכנען Kna or Chnd (Χνᾶ ) is mentioned distinctly by Herodian as the old name of Phoenicia. Hence, as Phoenicians or Canaanites were the most powerful of all tribes in Palestine at the time of its invasion by Joshua, the Israelites, in speaking of their own territory as it was before the conquest, called it “the land of Canaan.”

Homer, the ancient Greek poet (c. 1000 B.C.) is the earliest source mentioning “Phoenicians (Phoinikes – Phoiniké) from Tyre and Sidon” and telling of “Sidon which is in Phoenicia”.

33rd Degree Freemason and biblical scholar, Manly P. Hall confirms this by stating in his work, ‘The Secret Doctrine in the Bible‘ that “Cain is a race, we then understand that the story of his wanderings is an account.”

This explanation solves such problems ‘as arises in Genesis 4:15 where the wife of Cain is mentioned, yet the Scriptural accounts infer that at that time Cain and Abel were the only progeny of Adam, sttpposetll yth~lr-m-cm-in-tlte -workl-:–also in the same verse Cain builds a city which he named after his son.

One man could scarcely build a city nor could the abode of one man be termed a city. But when we realize that Cain is a race, we then understand that the story of his wanderings is an account of racial migration.”

This race who were known by modern man and the Greeks as Phoenicians and in the bible as the Sons of Cain. A people who called themselves the Sidonians and have been well known by both ancient and modern historians to have migrated to various lands and islands such as Crete to circumvent the world.

We are a confused race of people who in the bible are represented by our father Cain who at the beginning of this 6th Age in which we are in the 2019 year, commits murder out of jealousy of his brother Able and was then allegedly cursed by God to be a fugitive and a vagabond ie: a wanderer from place to place without a true home or real job.

When I look at my own family and fellow Phoenicians in our so-called modern era, I can not only witness this curse in real-time, I see the slave mark of Cain branded onto my skin and this history is part of my DNA which I have inherited from my ancestors.

The facts are that the history of the New Testament Biblical Patriarchs traces their genealogy all the way back to Adam and Eve through the line of Seth. This is why most of the sacred biblical history in the 6th Age and the New Testament ie: the New Law is chiefly confined to the bloodline of Seth, and affords few facts and history concerning that of Cain and his bloodline other than what you will find on my website.

Throughout the 6th Age, the posterity of Cain became more degenerate and wicked; and on the other hand, the descendants of Seth were honored as eminent for their piety and virtue. However, according to Josephus, over the centuries said to be equaling seven generations, The Sons of Seth (Sethians/Romans) became corrupt and profligate; and every kind of wickedness overspread the earth.

With that said, I have proved not only that I’m a descendant of these same Phoenicians and Sethians who has been tasked to reconstruct this history and has I prophetically stated back in 2009 to the current establishment of the Roman Catholic Hierarchy and Freemasons;

“We started the Brotherhood.”

Giblim: The Bible’s First Masons in the City of Our Lord

Giblim: The Bible’s First Masons in the City of Our Lord

The city where the cornerstone of the modern world had been formed is an ancient place known by the names Gebal, Gabala, Gubla, Giblim, Gibili, Gibyle, Givlim, Gebalene, Idumea, Judea and by the Arabs as Jebeil, Jebilee, Jubal and the Byblus/Byblos of the Greeks. Words that can be used interchangeably for they have the same meaning.

According to Philo who was employed by Rome as one of the conservators of the most ancient Phoenician historian and priest of Byblos, Sanchuniathon or Sanchoniatho (Phoenician: 𐤎𐤊𐤍𐤉𐤕𐤍), it was the first city of the Phoenicians and is also considered as the world’s “oldest continuously inhabited city.”

In the Bible, (Psalm lxxxiii. 7), Gebal (AKA Byblos) is the name given to a district of country lying on the south of Canaan, within the territories of Edom; the inhabitants of which formed an alliance with the neighboring nations against Jehoshaphat, king of Judah. The ancients of Gebal were occupied in making and repairing the Tyrian ships, Ezek. xxvii, 9.

Father of Church History and Bishop of Caesarea, Eusebius writing in the first half of the fourth century had used Gebalene for Gebal and said that Gebalene and the Idumea of the Old Testament were synonymous and Latin Catholic Historian Jerome had confirmed the same.

An ancient town where the Bible had originated and the location of the Masons’ first working tools and where Freemasons trace the origins of their heritage.

One of Freemasonry’s most esteemed people, King Hiram (Ahirom, Ahiram, Amram) was a ruler of Byblos. Physical evidence of his true existence was uncovered in 1923 when his stone Sarcophagus with the world’s oldest curse was actually discovered for a total of nine tombs belonging to the Phoenician kings were discovered in Byblos.

The exact place where King Solomon’s and Hiram’s builders, along with others from Gebal, shaped them, and prepared the wood and stones for building the house.

Evidence of this history can be found in various Bible passages that mention Gebal of the Bible such as in Ezekiel 27:9 – inhabited by seamen and calkers. Its inhabitants are called Giblim who are also known as the Giblites or, in Masonic language, Giblemites, and are said to have been distinguished for the art of stone-carving in the First Book of Kings which is translated from a Phoenician shipbuilding town; or stone-squarers. Josh. 13:5, 1 Kings 5:18 (32).

This is why 33rd Degree Freemason and author, Albert Gallatin Mackey says that Giblim is “A significant word in Freemasonry” in which the Geneva Bible translates Giblim or Giblimites as Masons.

Mackey had written in “Encyclopedia Of Freemasonry And Its Kindred Sciences“;

It is the plural of the noun Gibli, the g pronounced hard, and means, according to the idiom of the Hebrew, Giblites, or inhabitants of the city of Gebal.

The Giblim, or Giblites, are mentioned in Scripture as assisting Solomon’s and Hiram’s builders to prepare the trees and the stones for building the Temple, and from this passage, it is evident that they were clever artificers.

The passage is in First Kings (v, 18) and, in our common version, is as follows: “And Solomon’s builders and Hiram’ s builders did hew them, and the stone-squarers; so they prepared timber and stones to build the house,” where the word translated in the authorized version by stone-squarers is, in the original, Gblim.

It is so also in that translation known as the Bishop’s Bible. The Geneva version has Masons.

The French version of Martin has tailleurs de pierres following the English meaning; but Luther, in his German version retains the original word Giblim (see Ghiblim).

It is probable that the English translation followed the Jewish Targum, which has a word of similar import in this passage. The error has, however, assumed importance in the Masonic instructions, where Giblim is supposed to be synonymous with a Freemason. And Sir Wm.

Mackay concludes, “Drummond confirms this by saying in his origins (volume iii, book v, chapter iv, page 129) that ” the Gibalim were Master Masons who put the finishing hand to King Solomon’s Temple (see Gebal).”

This history is also part of the 5th Degree of Freemasonry. In Duncan’s Ritual of Freemasonry, it states that “the Phoenician word “gibal,” which makes “giblim” in the plural, signifies a mason or stone squarer.”

191:1 The Giblemites, or, as they are called in Scripture, the Giblim, were inhabitants of the city and district of Gebal, in Phoenicia, near Mount Lebanon, and were. therefore, under the dominion of the King of Tyre. The Phoenician word “gibal,” which makes “giblim” in the plural, signifies a mason or stone squarer.

In the Second Book of Kings, v. 17, 18, we read that “the King commanded, and they brought great stones, costly stones, and hewed stones, to lay the foundation of the house. And Solomon’s builders and Hiram’s builders did hew them, and the stone squarers” which last word is, in the original, giblim.

Gesenius says that the inhabitants of Gebal were seamen and builders, and Sir William Drummond asserts that “the Gibalim were Master Masons, who put the finishing hand to Solomon’s Temple.”

In this sense, the word is also used in the Book of Constitutions, which records that John de Spoulee, who, as one of the deputies of Edward III., assisted in rebuilding Windsor Castle, was called the “Master of the Ghiblim.”

It concludes, “The Giblim, or the Giblimites, were, therefore, stone-squarers or Master Masons.-Book of the Chapter, p. 56.”

Therefore, it makes perfect sense that in order to honor our Masonic ancestors from the Phoenician city of Gebal or Byblos, the 3 Great Lights (Symbols) of Masonry are the Holy Bible, the Square, and Compass and the main letter a G.

The World’s Oldest Curse: King Hiram’s Masonic Curse

The World’s Oldest Curse: King Hiram’s Masonic Curse

In my research into the Biblical Curse of Cain and history of the Masonic fraternity, I found that the oldest writing ever discovered is a curse written on the stone Sarcophagus of the Phoenician King Ahiram. Many biblical scholars and researchers such as myself have suggested a possible connection to who is also known in both Freemasonic and biblical history as King Hiram.

Ahirom, Ahiram, Amram, and Hiram are alternative spellings of the same name.

He was a ruler of the ancient city of Byblos (Jubal/ Jubayl / Jbeil) which is the same city where the first writing was discovered and also where the Holy Bible is said to have originated. According to the writer Philo of Byblos (quoting Sanchuniathon, and quoted in Eusebius), Byblos is also considered as the world’s “oldest continuously inhabited city.”

The Greeks had given the name of the lands they ruled as “Phoenicia,” and they called the city “Byblos” by the name “Papyrus” because this city was important in the papyrus trade. The Phoenician city, known to the Greeks as Býblos (Βύβλος) and to the Romans as Byblus, was important for their import of papyrus from Egypt.

The curse is written in ancient Phoenician writing with 22 letters, the same number as the Hebrew which also happens to be the world’s first alphabet. The scribes of Byblos were said to have developed this writing which became the precursor of all modern alphabets of Babel and all languages that are spoken today.

This is very important because not only was the world’s oldest curse discovered but it was also the world’s oldest writing in one of the world’s oldest cities where the bible had originated.

The inscription reads;

“A coffin made it [It]tobaal, son of Ahirom, king of Byblos, for Ahirom, his father, lo, thus he put him in seclusion. Now, if a king among kings and a governor among governors and a commander of an army should come up against Byblos; and when he then uncovers this coffin – (then:) may strip off the scepter of his judiciary, may be overturned the throne of his kingdom, and peace and quiet may flee from Byblos.

And as for him, one should cancel his registration concerning the libation tube of the memorial sacrifice.”

Another interesting Freemasonic fact is that the first priest offering tribute to the King appears to be holding a Masonic Square in his right hand. They also look very similar to the Egyptian priesthood proving further connections to Egypt which I have written about many times before.

The Sarcophagus of Ahiram was discovered in 1923 during an excavation in Byblos, which was led by the French archaeologist Pierre Montet. A total of nine tombs belonging to the Phoenician kings were discovered at Byblos.

Hiram’s tomb was discovered after it became exposed from heavy rains that caused the collapse of parts of a hill. The tombs were cut directly into the rock, and it was in tomb V that his sarcophagus, which is made of limestone, was found.

In my many previous articles, I have put forth research showing that Ahiram is also known biblically and Masonically as King Hiram who was the Phoenician King of Tyre on the Holy Island of Crete during the reigns of Egyptian Kings, David and Solomon who I have also connected to Ramesses II and III.

Physical evidence of these facts was found in Ahiram’s tomb when during the excavation some objects bearing the cartouche of Ramesses II (XIII century), were discovered in the burial chamber next to the sarcophagus.

It is said that King Ahiram was succeeded by his son Ithobaal I (Latin Ithobalus, Hebrew Ethbaal) (reigned 591–573 BCE) who is the first to be explicitly entitled King of Byblos. From the inscriptions on the lid of the sarcophagus, it seems clear that the one in charge of the ceremony was the king’s son.

This king is said by religious scholars to be identified with specifically Ithobaal III who according to the list of kings of Tyre of Josephus was reigning contemporary with Ezekiel at the time of the first fall of Jerusalem.

He was said to the father of the Jezebel and is mentioned in the First Book of Kings as the king of Sidonians.

Today, the Sarcophagus of King Ahiram is kept in the National Museum of Beirut in Lebanon.

The Hidden Secrets of Notre Dame and the Parisii of Isis

The Hidden Secrets of Notre Dame and the Parisii of Isis

Around 250 BC, the Celts settled on the site which was to become the ancient city of Lutetia (Lutetia Parisiorum, “Lutetia of the Parisii”),’ and today is known as the city of Paris. It was named after a tribe of Celts known as the Parisii during the Roman era of the 1st to the 4th century. The Parisians (Pariasians)it had been said were the followers of Isis who was known as the chief goddess of the Greco-Egyptian empire. Hence, the Celtic Parisii came from the East and eventually settled in Gaul.

They are first mentioned in the Commentaries of Julius Caesar who dwelt in a district on the Seine in the town called Lutetia. The Greek geographer Strabo had written during the reign of Augustus Caesar that the Parisii live round about the Seine, having a city, called Lucotocia (Λουκοτοκία), on an island in the river”.

Russia appoints Steven Seagal as its special representative for Russian-U.S. humanitarian ties

Russia appoints Steven Seagal as its special representative for Russian-U.S. humanitarian ties

U.S. actor, martial artist, and reserve sheriff, Steven Seagal has just been bestowed with a special mission and title by Russia.

It is said to be one of the toughest roles he has ever played…

This past week the Russian Foreign Ministry announced that Seagal will be its special representative for Russian-U.S. humanitarian ties to help promote “cultural and humanitarian links”

The announcement was made on Russia’s foreign ministry’s Facebook account saying Seagal would now serve as Special Representative for Russia-US Cultural Links, Cultural and Historical Heritage.

Seagal then announced on Twitter:

Russian president Vladimir Putin is a friend of Seagal and the two see eye to eye on many issues and both are big martial arts practitioners. After the announcement, the Russian President said that Seagal’s new appointment would serve as a symbol of improving ties between Moscow and Washington.

In the past, Seagal has even called Putin “one of the greatest leaders in the world.”

In 2016, Putin gave Seagal a Russian passport.

After receiving his passport, Segal stated, “I will never ever falter. Never!”

Putin is not the only powerful Russian comrade Steven Seagal has befriended. In 2016, he was photographed hanging out with who is called Europe’s last dictator, Belarus’ president – Aleksander Lukashenko.

Just last year, he appeared like a Boss in Kyrgyzstan during the Nomad Games competition dressed like Russian-Mongolian Royalty riding a horse in a full suit of armor.

What most people do not know is that Seagal’s ancestors are actually from Russia.

His grandfather and grandmother were Russian Jewish immigrants and his wife is Mongolian Erdenetuya Batsukh (Mongolian: Батсүхийн Эрдэнэтуяа), better known as “Elle”.

Seagal has agreed with the Kremlin’s views on many issues like when he rejected allegations that Russia meddled in the U.S. 2016 election, telling a British television show it was “stupid” to think so. He embraced Putin’s position on Crimea which helped get him banned from Ukraine in 2014.

I will leave you with a quote from his film, “Code of Honor,” where Seagal plays a special-forces colonel who avenges the fatal drive-by shooting of his wife and child by going after criminals.

Seagal prophetically says in a Southern drawl, “I still love my country, I still love my family, and I am still an honorable man. If I am the bad guy, what does that make you?”

Hyksos Pharaoh Khyan

Hyksos Pharaoh Khyan

One of the most Ancient Egyptian artifacts ever found in Greece was discovered on the Holy Island of Crete which further proves that the Egyptians had connections going a long way back with the Cretans who they called the Keiftu and the Greeks called the Phoenicians. A people who I believe were blood-related and ruled the world together for thousands of years.

This ancient artifact was buried beneath the Temple of Knossos (Gnosis) where archeologists discovered an ancient alabaster engraved with Egyptian Pharaoh Khian’s upon it in a deposit assigned by Arthur Evans to Middle Minoan III A.9. The remarkable parallels between the Cretan seal designs and the Egyptian scarab-designs were first pointed out by Evans.

Seuserenre Khyan (Khian, Khayan or Khan) was said to be the First king of all Hyksos during the Fifteenth dynasty of Egypt. His birthdate is estimated between 1725BCE and 1605BCE.

It is said that the supremacy of Egyptian power in the Mediterranean had started right around the reign of Khian. An interesting note is that the supremacy of Crete’s power had started approximately the same time period and lasted for 2,000 years later until Rome and the Caesars conquered Greco-Roman Egypt.

Khian is Manetho’s Yannas. His cousin Tubal ruled Spain. His alternate names as “Khayan, Khian, Apachnan, Yannas, Jannis, Iannes, Joannis , Khiyaran, and Khajran.”

Khyan had carried the titles of an Egyptian king, but also the title ruler of the foreign land (heqa-khaset) which was a typical designation of the Hyksos rulers.

He was in control of Thebes just like one of his predecessors and descendants, Rekhmire.

Khyan symbol was a lion. His throne name, Seuserenra, has been found on a grey granite lion which had been built into the wall of a house in Baghdad.

The Ancient Egyptian and Cretan Brotherhood

The Ancient Egyptian and Cretan Brotherhood

The connections and relations between the Ancient Egyptians and Cretans have been well documented by the historians of yesteryear. I would like to add that I believe the Egyptians were also racially and politically connected to the Cretans through the Thebans.

As I have written before, Crete was called Keftiu and Peoples of the Sea in the Ancient Egyptian texts who were often represented by the Egyptians of the XVIIIth Dynasty. The Greeks in the Old Testament called Crete by the name – Kaftor, or Caphtor. The Latins called it Cappadocia and the Arabs called the island Kerith. This same island has also been known by various names over the course of history like Arcadia, Candia, Minoa, Phoenicia, and Phrygia etc.

Today, in the tomb of Rekhmire at Thebes, we can find proof of these Cretan (Keftiu) connections that are preserved even to this day and most great researchers concur that Keftiu to be synonymous with Crete.

Evidence of their relations can be found in the famous tomb of the Egyptian Vizier Rekhmire at Thebes where we find the Cretans wearing different color kilts bringing tribute to their Egyptian masters. Here is Detail of Keftiu (Cretans) from TT100, Tomb of Rekhmire. (Original photo via Osirisnet)

And here is another image of the Keftiu from TT100, Tomb of Rekhmire. (Original photo via Osirisnet)

Throughout the tomb of Rekhmire, there are various paintings of fine dark red-skinned Cretan men with both dark brown and blonde hair wearing their symbolic kilts of different colors signifying their various ranks. Some of the men also all wear the upturned sandals with straps, indicative of the Israelites along with colorful leggings.

You will also find some of their heads shaven and others with a full head of hair with a carefully designed curl flowing down to their waists which also help signify their rank. The High Priests wore their hair long and the lower ranks of scribes, musicians, masons, and artificers wore their hair short.

Today we see a similar tradition in Christianity with the Orthodox Priests of the East wearing their hair long and the Roman Catholic of the West wear their hair short.

In these images, we see the Cretans bringing the various products of their fine crafts mainly vessels of gold and silver, jugs, drinking cups, amphorae, and rhytons. They also provide the products they have obtained by trade such as ingots and rings of silver, daggers, chains and pieces of lapis lazuli.

The Tribute is piled up at the feet of the scribes who would make records for the Pharaoh and royal court.

In the text titles the “Instructions to the Vizier,” we discover that the Egyptian royal court at Thebes had relations with the Island of Crete (Keiftu) whom they also governed and taxed.

The text notes that the Prince of Punt is coming with his tribute bringing it to the Pharaoh. Coming after the Tribute of Punt we find the “Princes of Crete and the islands of the Mediterranean.”

The chiefs from Crete are “bent and bowing before the might of his majesty.”

The accompanying text reads, “Coming in peace by the Great of Crete, islands that are in the middle of the sea, bending, bowing of the head, because of the power of His Majesty, the King of Lower Egypt, Menkheperre, given life forever, on learning of his strength in all foreign countries, their tribute being on their backs, in order that they may be given the breath of life, desiring to be faithful (literally: to be upon the water) to His Majesty, to ensure that his power protects them. It is the confidant of the King, Mayor of the City, Vizier Rekhmire, who receives all the tribute of all foreign countries, which are brought due to the power of His Majesty.”

His image is completely erased. Facing left, he witnessed the tribute ceremony. The accompanying text states;

“Receiving the attendants of the Southern regions along those of Punt, the Retenu (Syria-Palestine) attendants, the Cretan attendants, along with the loot from all foreign countries foreign, which has been sent through power of His Majesty, the King of Upper and Lower Egypt (Menkheperre) | living forever, by the Prince, Governor, Great among Greats, Dignitary among Friends, Director of the chief Works, efficient confidant of the sovereign, the one causing he who is in the Palace to praise him and to place him at the head of (his) friends, and as top chief of the entire country, (because) he recognized (him) as one who achieved useful things. The example is for him; his venerable status is before him, the Mayor of the City, the Vizier Rekhmire”.

Rekhmire is followed by six officials (called ‘friends’ or ‘companion’s) each carrying in his left hand a plant branch. Above them is the text:

“Friends of the Palace – life, health, strength – coming before the Vizier, reciting prayers. They recite a joyous chant:

The sovereign, the one whose monuments are perfect.

Menkheperre Every office is upheld, regions and cities are established, laws and regulations are enduring for their effects.

The children of Dignitaries are in the office of their fathers May he continue (literally again)… to do the same for millions of years. He is durable and stable on the throne of Horus. May he come to repeat the Sed-festival.

May he guide the living for eternity”.

This text shows that they clear the way for the Vizier who leaves the throne room after the King’s speech. Behind them appears to be a person holding a stick who must have been a guard which has almost completely disappeared.
