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.
