ACHAEANS AND HITTITES PDF

Maukinos A particularly interesting example of such disputes is a moment in the Hittite Ahhiyawa texts where the rebelious figure Piyamaradu eludes the reach of the Great King of the Hittites: Anf late and sorely-missed friend Emily Vermeule had once remarked about these pictures:. The confederation of twenty-two states that was known as the land of Assu-wa is analogous, it has been argued, with the confederation of states that was known as the realm of Ahhiya-wa. In this context, a decorated shard of pottery from the Hittite capital, Aachaeansdepicts a warrior with body armor and achaean tusk helmettypical of Achaean warfare, while the Hittite king offers a Mycenaean type thrusting sword to the Storm God, Teshub.

Later, by the Archaic and Classical periods, the term "Achaeans" referred to inhabitants of the much smaller region of Achaea. Herodotus identified the Achaeans of the northern Peloponnese as descendants of the earlier, Homeric Achaeans. According to Pausanias , writing in the 2nd century CE, the term "Achaean" was originally given to those Greeks inhabiting the Argolis and Laconia. They then moved into the region later called Achaea.

A scholarly consensus has not yet been reached on the origin of the historic Achaeans relative to the Homeric Achaeans and is still hotly debated. Former emphasis on presumed race, such as John A. The contrasting belief that "Achaeans", as understood through Homer, is "a name without a country", an ethnos created in the Epic tradition , [7] has modern supporters among those who conclude that "Achaeans" were redefined in the 5th century BC, as contemporary speakers of Aeolic Greek.

Karl Beloch suggested there was no Dorian invasion, but rather that the Peloponnesian Dorians were the Achaeans. William Prentice disagreed with both, noting archeological evidence suggests the Achaeans instead migrated from "southern Asia Minor to Greece, probably settling first in lower Thessaly " probably prior to BC. Some Hittite texts mention a nation lying to the west called Ahhiyawa.

Another important example is the Tawagalawa Letter written by an unnamed Hittite king most probably Hattusili III of the empire period 14th—13th century BC to the king of Ahhiyawa, treating him as an equal and implying Miletus Millawanda was under his control. The exact relationship of the term Ahhiyawa to the Achaeans beyond a similarity in pronunciation was hotly debated by scholars, even following the discovery that Mycenaean Linear B is an early form of Greek; the earlier debate was summed up in by Hans G.

The latter ruled Egypt in circa — BC. Moreover, a list of the cities and regions of the Tanaju is also mentioned in this inscription; among the cities listed are Mycenae, Nauplion , Kythera , Messenia and the Thebaid region of Thebes. Included amongst the ethnic names of the repulsed invaders is the Ekwesh or Eqwesh, whom some have seen as Achaeans, although Egyptian texts specifically mention these Ekwesh to be circumcised which does not seem to have been a general practice in the Aegean at the time.

Homer mentions an Achaean attack upon the delta, and Menelaus speaks of the same in Book IV of the Odyssey to Telemachus when he recounts his own return home from the Trojan War. Later Greek myths also say Helen had spent the time of the Trojan War in Egypt , and not at Troy , and that after Troy the Greeks went there to recover her.

Greek mythology[ edit ] In Greek mythology , the perceived cultural divisions among the Hellenes were represented as legendary lines of descent that identified kinship groups, with each line being derived from an eponymous ancestor.

Cadmus from Phoenicia , Danaus from Egypt , and Pelops from Anatolia each gained a foothold in mainland Greece and were assimilated and Hellenized.

Hellen, Graikos, Magnes, and Macedon were sons of Deucalion and Pyrrha , the only people who survived the Great Flood ; [18] the ethne were said to have originally been named Graikoi after the elder son but later renamed Hellenes after Hellen who was proved to be the strongest.
