Skip to comments.Old Egypt investigator identifies to mysterious Hyksos kings [sic]

Georgeos Diaz-Montexano, scriptologist and Egyptologist amateur, has been able to identify the names of the Hyksos kings like pertaining to the group of languages and proto-Greek or Mycenaean's dialects.
The true ethnic origin of the mysterious Hyksos that were able to take control of the power of a considerable part of Old Egypt, during centuries XVII to the XVI before Christ, has been always a true challenge for the Egyptologists. However, the generalized opinion more for a long time has been that the Hyksos would be Semitic towns, fundamentally coastal inhabitants of the strip Syrian-Palestine, that is, Canaanites or proto-Phoenicians. Nevertheless, as it indicates Diaz-Montexano, to date an identification had not been made signs or solid of each one of the names of the Hyksos kings according to the data contributed by Manetho in its chronicle of Egypt; in fact, as soon as only two of the six names of Hyksos kings mentioned by this Egyptian amanuenses have been able to relate approximately - to other two names of Semitic origin.

Sorry, but I do not buy this "theory". Back to the drawing board...
Does anyone see this scarab think Celtic? If so it would validate them coming from the north rather than the east.
These same designs are found on Maltese monoliths, that predate Celtic designs by thousands of years.
I want a Stargate...
I want a mothership
I would settle for a mothership. Yep. I would.
Yes, Malta, definitely to the North and not the East. But I seem to recall seeing similar designs in some early British stone structures. New Grange ? or others.
I don't either, but thought it was interesting and fun. The Hyksos were what we would call Arabs.
It was once thought that the wheel was invented just once, and then diffused out across the Earth (other than into the Americas; this is still used as an alibi for isolationism). Those little squiggles aren't really indicative of some older source etc.
The little wave patterns aren't the same as the spiral maze gizmos found throughout Europe, nor are they as old. :')
Current thinking is that the Hyksos were from the northern Agean, which would make them proto-Greeks.
"Rowley Regis online" is a pretty obscure web site. How on earth did you find this?
Current thinking is that the Hyksos were from the northern Agean,I'm really, really not aware of any such thinking. It has been claimed (for years, really) that at least some of the Sea Peoples (who are much later in Egyptian history) came from the Greek islands, the mainland, and from Anatolia. That's not my view, but it is very common. I've never heard any such origin offered for the Hyksos.

I made posted my remark before linking to the article and reading it, but the author evidently agrees with me:
"..."...These names only appear registered in the oldest dialects of the Greek, which does not seem no chance. If my hypothesis arrives to be accepted by the experts in Greek philology and Indo-European, in the names of kings Hyksos de Manetho we would have a testimony of the older Indo-European forms known these names that later superlived in the Doric's and Aeolian Greek dialects. Dialects that are considered already existed at the same time of the Dynasties of the Hyksos... I probably think that the Hyksos could be proto-Greek Indo-European towns, of Minoico-Mycenean origin, and this would explain the considerable amount of found evidences of this civilization in Avaris... ". - Diaz Montexano comments...."
(Babelfish makes a mess of things, doesn't it?)
Manfred Bietak related:
And from another web search:KUP, Chapter 6Recently Manfred Bietak, the archaeologist who is excavating ancient Avaris, reported the discovery of a room covered with Minoan frescoes, and dated it to the beginning of the XVIII dynasty; presumably this was a place where Minoan traders or ambassadors stayed, while visiting the main city of northeast Egypt.

On the other hand, here is a web site that claims that the Hykso were none other than the ancient Jews! (makes a pretty good argument for it, too....)
:') But that isn't true, and the arguments aren't sound, just rehashed anti-Jewish junk, some of which dates to ancient times (Apion, most notoriously; but also Josephus, who wrote "Against Apion" as a rebuttal to Apion's "Against the Jews").
