    HOMER AND ATON

    The Egyptians assert that Homer visited Egypt. I think its true because he states verses that are similar to some hymns to Aton worshippers.

    “O sun of day, the fear of every distant land,
    Thou makest their life
    Thou hast set a Nile in heaven
    That it may fall for them”-The life and times of Akhnaton by Weigall p.133

    “When the young Dawn (Sun) showed again…
    We dragged the ship down into the bright water…
    Back to where Egypt is, the sky-fallen (Nile) river”-The Odyssey 4:580

    Some contact direct or indirect Homer must have had with Egyptian mythology that the Nile had fallen from heaven.

    Good point. I am currently reading Stolen Legacy and it reveals that people would come from miles around to go through the trials of trying to enter the Mystery Schools. It was through several invasions of Egypt in which several books were stolen from these collages and libraries.

    Homer also praised Thebes in the Illiad 9:380 calling it the “hundred gated city”. The Greeks would later build a city in Greece and name it after the Egyptian Thebes. “The likelihood that the Greeks developed these associations independent of any direct contact with Egypt is totally preposterous”-The Nile contributions to Civilization by Browder p.114. Scholars like Martin Bernal assert that the Trojan horse story was based on a Egyptian king actual war campaign. The single most important theme in Greek legend has an Egyptian literary precedent from an Egyptian general under Tuthmosis III.-see Black Athena writes back by Bernal p.330-331
