Kotys (Thracian goddess)

2 Comments

Cotis (Latin), Kotis (Greek), Ceotis, Ciotis (Romania) is a Thracian – Dacian goddess, venerated especially at the Thracian Edons, population that it is found between the Struma river and the Mesta river, in south Sofia.

In Antiquity they were stretched till Vardar river (Axios), but after the Macedonian expansion they were pushed to east, in Thracia.

Strabon describes Cotis goddess’ cult as almost the same as Bendis goddess. He said that the Edons were playing some instruments that were issuing certain strange sounds, as thunders, caused by some big drums, probably, sound combined with some frantically strings accords, musical ritual like the ritual dedicated to the Sabazius god (Dionysus). This cult was also adored in the classic Athenian period, where the priests that were participating at this ritual was called baptai because they “were baptizing” every time the participants, purifying their souls.

It is said that they were singing with loud voice, in choir, those words:

“I ran the bad, I found the good”

Her cult may be like Attis or Cybela goddess’. The Edonian festival dedicated to the Cotis goddess was called the Cotyttia that it is said it was an nocturnal orgiastic ritual, with powerfully obscene connotations.

If we believe in the moreover affirmations, it minds that we have powerfully osirical influences, by Hellenism, more exactly by Dionysus/Sabazius.

Sorin Paliga thinks that the Cotis goddess’ name is related with the name of cotiata planet “strong grass” (tritticum repens), word derived from the ciot root, with Thracian origin.

The Language of the Thracians – Geographical names (Ivan Duridanov)

Geographical names (A – Z)

Achelos, Acheln (Leo Gramm., Georg. Amartol., Georg. Mon.; AD 917) – small river near the town ofAnchialo (Pomorie) on theBlack Sea. The name is explained from the IE *kel- ‘water’, preserved in the Lith. hydronym Akkl (lake). It is also compared with the Lydian river name of Achéles, Akéles, the Phrygian akala ‘water’. As identical are given also the name of Achelos of five rivers inGreece. The same Thracian name is hidden in the name of the smallBlack Sea town ofAnchialo, attested by Strabo under the form of Anchiál and by Apian as Anchíalos, which is in fact a Grecized form of the Thracian name, linked with the Greek word anchíalos ‘coastal’.

Jordanes (about Burebista)

“Then, while Burebista’s reign at the Goths, Deceneus came in Gothia, the time when Sylla sized power at Roma. Receiving Deceneu, Burebista gave him almost a regal authority.

As his piece of advice, the Goths started to devastate German’s mucks, which were dominated by the Francs…

Telling this and many others with art to the Goths, Deceneus has became in them eyes a miraculous creature, as he managed not only the common men, but even the kings, because then he chosen between them the more important and wisest men and he taught them the theology, he advised them to pay honor to certain divinities and sanctuaries, making them priests and giving them the name of “pilleati”, because, as I believe, having the heads covered with a tiara, which we call with another term “pilleus”, they has made sacrifices.

For the rest of the folk he ruled the roast to be called “capillati”, name that the Goths remember till today in their songs, because they gave them a big consideration.

After Deceneus’ dead, they had, almost in the same veneration, Comosicus, because he was as ingenious as Deceneu was.

He was considered as king, as supreme priest, as high bloke too, because of his aptness and he was making justice for his folk as the last instance.

After he left the life, has ascending to the throne, as Goths’ king, Coryllus, which has led 40 years his folks from Dacia.”

The Giants Gog and Magog – Jewish terror

1 Comment

Gog and Magog figures based on the British mythology, located in the Royal Arcade, Melbourne

The giants, a titanic generation, born from Terra (also known as Gaia), and Uran (Uranus), was a gorgeous, violent and non religious people, having no belief in gods, as being themselves of divine essence.

The giants were by excellency a  mountain’s people (Uran is the sinnonymous  of mountain, or  the Mountain’s Man).

In their war with Zeus, they built mountains over mountains  to get to Olympus, to God’s Palace, the huge Atlas trembled when they attacked, and although the Gods, headed by Zeus, pounced over the Giants, throwing lightings, they still weren’t capable to overcome them, and Hercules himself had to intervene to get them.

The Giants County was on the old Dacia territory, near the saint Oceanos Potamos River (Danube), where, from the same parents, Gaia ans Uran, their bigger brothers, the Titans, were born.

Often, the Romans used comparrations as the fight between Gods, Titans and Giants, with the wars against the Dacians, the Romans calling themselves the winning Gods over Titans, Giants, and then  the Dacians.

The Giants were mentioned also into the Jewish traditions, being known as Gog and Magog, as Ezekiel  mentioned.

In one of his stories, the prophet and the storyteller Ezekiel threatened the Jewish people that Jehova will bring as ruller over them the King Gog from Magog, with his beautiful army, armed with  swords, spears, bolts , shields and helmets.

They, coming from North, riding on horses, will rush as a storm over Israel, to steal and destroy it. They will scour the land in triumph, will trap down the Jews, and then, after fulfilling their mission, will be all destroyed by the anger of The Sky.

Ezekiel’s prophecy referred , no doubt, to the old traditions about the great war between Giants, Titans  and Gods, like when the Giants and Titans chased the gods all the way to Egypt.

The Jeremiah prophet , that lived not long before Ezekiel , talks about the same people, whom he simply calls them as  the “gentium praedo”, that will come from a far away land, from North, from the bottom of the Earth. It will be a courageous people of archers, old and strong, talking a language unknown to the Jews, they are a big people, cruel and ruthless, with their voices moaning like the sea.

They are coming on horses faster than the vultures , all in a row, prepared for big invasion war. They will destroy Jerusalem, like Nabucodonosor, will destroy all of Juda’s strongholds, transforming  the country of the Jews in desert, so that no man will be left in Jerusalem, and all the Jews will end up in slavery.

From here we took the name Lucifer-Luciferis (daystar), which was given to Nabucodonosor by Christians.

With six centuries before Ezekiel, also John the Theologian write about Gog and Magog, in his Book of Revelation.

Speaking about the last time of the humanity, John says that after 1000 years of prison for the serpentine dragon Typhon (Devil, Satan, Set, Ahriman etc) the dragon will be released, he will rebuild his strength and he will lead at war the people of Gog and Magog, which are splitted in four corners of the world and whose number is as the sand of the sea.

The Book of Revelation consider that all pelasgian tribes descended from Gog and Magog, divided in different parts of the world. Those people will run over the face of the Earth and they will siege the beloved city of Jerusalem, and they will be punished by the heavenly fire (God of the Jews, Yahweh).

In The Book of Revelation we can find a copy of the old Jewish traditions, written by the prophets Ezekiel and Jeremiah, with many years before Christianity.

Under the name Gog and Magog, the ancient people understand Getae and Massagetae Thracian tribes.

The names Goga, Gugu, Gugă, Gogă and Gogan are also used today by Romanian peasants, especially in mountain regions.

From the Sibylline Oracles result that the countries where the tribes of Gog and Magog live, are in the northern part of Thrace.

Other traditions about Gog and Magog are presented in the epic legends of the Alexander the Great. The country of the tribes Gog and Magog is described as wild and inhospitable, being subjected to Boreas wind (Northern wind), rain and Northern frost. According to the epic legends of Alexander, the tribes of Gog and Magog invade Southern regions and they closed Alexander in Macedonia, making him prisoner, but Alexander managed to escape and to gather a great army. After that, he will conquer the Northern regions of Gog and Magog (Country of Gog and Magog).

Other ancient legend tell us that tribes of Gog and Magog were under the rule of Popa Ion, a prince who rule also in Asia.

Undoubtedly that here we have an old reminiscence about the adorable Pelasgian King Ianus (Janus, the god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings and endings) which rule over the Arimi tribe, at the North of Oceanos Potamos (Danube), before moving to Italy. His face is also present on the old coins of Dacia.

Geto-Dacians “The most Brave and Fair Thracian tribe”

Leave a comment

steagcolor

More and more voices claiming to represent “history” of our multi-millennial nation, evokes an echo in what is increasingly felt and heard, that the Geto-Dacians were polygamist people, eating meat and the worst of all, were high consumers of alcohol.

herm07

To demonstrate once for all that the Geto-Dacian, Germanic, Celtic and Baltic people, like other Thracian tribes, were not consumers of alcohol, just because they diddnt knew any alcoholic beverage outside of “The Drink of Gods” “called mead (Hydromel in French, in Spanish Hidromiel, Idromele in Italian, hydromel in Portuguese, English Mead, miód in Russian, Polish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Med in Ukrainian, German Met, Medovina in ceho-Slovak, Serbo-Croatian and Slovenia-ur Ezti in Basque, Sima in Finnish, Hydromeli in classical Latin, Midus in Latvian) we will quote an important historical source of the I century AD.

Ninth-century picture stone from the island of Gotland, Sweden. A valkyrie with a drinking-horn greets Odin as he arrives at Valhalla astride Sleipnir, his eight-legged horse, on which he will fight at Ragnarok.

The most important evidence we find in “Geography” of Strabon, specifically in the Book VII of Chapter III:

“[…] Greeks considered that Getae were a Thracian tribe. They lived on both banks of Danube, I mean both Getae and Mysians as well. Mysians were Thracians too but in present time, their name is Moesians; the origins of Mysians are from Moesians, which live among Lydians, Phrygians and Trojans.

Phrygians themselves are Bryges (Briges), a Thracian tribe, like Mygdones, Bebrycians, Bithyni, Thyni and maybe Mariandynii too.

All of them left quick Europe, but Mysians remained on place together with the other Thracians.

My opinion is that Poseidonios correctly assumed that Homer designates with this name, Mysians, in Europe (I mean those from Thrace) when he says:

His eyes light ii returned back to see

The Country of Thracians populated by those who curb sirepii,

And Mysians who fight each other from close distance. […]

Poseidonios says that Mysians are out of meat products from a particular religious faith, just because they don’t grow animals. They feed with honey, milk and cheese, living alone, as they are called pious men from gods and capnobates.

1459502894_13f6177d02

There are Thracians which live without girls, they are called Founders. They are considered saints, because of their honor and live without fear. Poet Homer called them “holy milkers of mare, which drink milk, without life w and the most correct people”. They are nicknamed “without life” especially because they live without girls, Homer himself say about widowhood that is only a half life as he called the house of Protesilaos “half” just because he was a widow man.

Mysians are called “fighters from closer distance” because they are undefeated and excellent warriors. In the book of the XIII chapter (the Iliad) it must be writen “Moesians, fighters from closer distance” instead of Mysians (claim Poseidonios) .

But certainly, it is foolhardy to change the text of Homer, considered good across so many years. Indeed, it’s much more believable that they were appointed from the beginning Mysians and now they changed the name in Moesians. The epithet “without life” could be rather in the sense of “widow” than the “unfeeder” or “with houses on carts. […]

And the practice of Pythagoras which say to abstain from meat, remained for them as a dictation from Zamolxis. […]

About the information that tell us that:

“Shortly Deceneu himself was considered as a God, as I said when I talked about Zamolxis. And in a sign of obedience, Getae people were convinced to cut vine and to live without wine […]” we cant specify the exact location for these “Getae” as we dont know if the text make reference to Tarabostes or Comati.

Taraboste (Dacian nobleman)

Probably a part of Geto-Dacian nobility go negative way, but just because of dirty Greek and Roman influence, or perhaps just because the Geto-Dacians who remained in the fortresses on the Black Sea to administer the territories conquered by the emperor Burebista began this shameful practice, a humiliating practice for the northern tribes of Thracians.

dac04

Dacian Comatus (Capillat)

I’d like to mention that the Odrysians and other southern Thracian tribes, drink wine and take various hallucinogens substances such as magic mushrooms, hemp (weed, cannabis), or even oriental opioids.

All these facts came later, due to influence of Greek and later the Roman influence, and various mythraic influences from Orient.

Therefore, the Geto-Dacians and Moesians, Carpiani and Costobocii, and all the “barbarian” tribes from the north of Danube, diddnt consume alcohol, but only mead as all “barbarians” from North. These Tendencious statements released against our ancestors are just some attacks which have a single intention: degeneration of our great and divine ancestors, the Geto-Dacians, “The most brave and fair Thracian tribe” !

Our polygam enemies, large consumers of alcohol and drugs, seem to be envious on our ancestors and their sacred lives, as well about their divine origin.
