„Triumphant bull with flowing beard climbing the mountain“? It’s from the time of the First Dynasty of Ur…No one knows what it means because: „we have no written documents explaining it“…At least this is what we can read in „A Problem of Early Sumerian Art

Let’s see if we can come out with some sensible explanation for this scene…“Enki placed in charge of the whole of heaven and earth the hero, the youth Utu (Shamash), the bull standing triumphantly, audaciously, majestically…the great herald in the east of holy An…with a lapis-lazuli beard, rising from the horizon…“ from „Enki and the world order„…Here’s the majestic Shamash, depicted as a golden bull with long flowing „lapis lazuli“ beard…

Why? To understand this we need to know something about the source of water in Tigris and Euphrates…Well according to the Sumerian legends, the source of these two rivers is Enki.
In „Enki and the world order“ we read: „…Father Enki…he stood up full of lust like a rampant bull, lifted his penis, ejaculated and filled the Tigris with flowing water [after filling Euphrates]. He was like a wild cow mooing for its young in the wild grass…“
But the actual source of water in the two sacred rivers was to a smaller extent rain which fell during the wet half of the year (Oct/Nov-Apr/May), but majority of water in Tigris and Euphrates came from the snow melt in Anatolian highlands and Iranian Zagros mountains…
This snowmelt is caused by Young (spring) sun, Young Shamash…Here he is depicted on this seal in a short tunic climbing the sacred mountain towards Imprisoned Enki…To free him…

Mars Rigonemetis – Mars Rigisamus – Celtic God of Sacred Groves and War

Celtic Mythology

Rigonemetis was a local god and divine protector of the sacred groves in Britain in the Iron Age. The Romans identified Rigonemetis with Mars, the Roman god of war, during the process of interpretatio romana. The Celtic god, Rigisamus, was a god of war in Gaul and likely another incarnation of Rigonemetis

The Corieltauvi tribe worshipped Rigonemetis as a local god of agriculture, fertility and “Lord of the Sacred Groves” in the Midlands of England. Their large territory encompassed Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland.

The Romans paired Rigonemetis as a deity who protected trees against diseases with Mars, the Roman god of war.

Quintus Neratius Proxsimus dedicated a stone with the inscription to Mars Rigonemetis at a shrine at Nettleham in Lincolnshire in the second century AD. Nettleham may have been a sacred site of the Celtic god, Rigonemetis, in the Iron Age.

The wording of the inscription also…

The Nine Stanes Recumbent Stone Circle

Lenathehyena's Blog

First rain in around a week fell today (29 December 2011) but it waited until I had paid a visit to the Nine Stanes – the recumbent stone circle at Mulloch Wood near Banchory in Aberdeenshire.

The circle is on high ground, as usual, but the tree line doesn’t allow views now although just along the road there is the most spectacular panorama overlooking the surrounding mountains.

This was a cremation circle, burnt bones having been found within the ring cairn which is evident under your feet although well covered with rough grass now.

This 4-5000 year old circle is incomplete with only 6 standing stones plus a small recumbent, one standing flanker and one fallen. The recumbent top is not even and doesn’t appear to have been worked as some others have.

The circle appears large possibly because the stones are smaller than other circles. In fact the circle…

Topography of Roman Napoca

Szabó Csaba

The Roman city of Colonia Aurelia Napocensis (founded by Hadrian as Municipium Aelium Napocensium probably from a rural settlement, a pagus or – after some opinions – a military vicus) is lying under the modern city of Cluj (Kolozsvár) in Transylvania, Romania.

The Roman ruins and the Roman past of the city was well known since the 16th century, many of the Roman inscriptions were reused in the latest wall of the city built in the 14-15th century. The identification of the city however occured only in the 19th century, although Szamösközy István, the Hungarian historian from the 16th century presumed already that under the Renaissance city of Kolozsár (Claudiopolis in that time) lies the ancient Napoca known from Ptolemy and few epigraphic sources.

Today, almost a hundred inscriptions and numerous archaeological sites are known from the Roman city, due to the systematic and rescue excavations which intensified after 1990.

S is for Saturnus

Lucus Antiquus

Saturnus is a very old, very important deity.  He lends his name to not only the ancient Saturnalia festival, or to a description of character, but also to one of the planets of our solar system and a now bankrupt car company.  To name a few things.

He is one of only a few deities to whom one sacrifices with their head uncovered, and not even the ancient Romans know why that was.  However, he is usually depicted with his head veiled – so the sacrificing with the head uncovered might have come from the Romans not wanting to imitate him.

Several myths are ascribed to Saturnus, all revolving around his rule on the Earth:

According to one tradition, he was a mortal king who reigned over either the Capitoline hill or Latium long before Aeneas had even been born.  He ruled with Ianus, another mortal (in this myth), during…
