There is certainly elements of Phoenician in Ancient Greek writings that also relates to traditions of Syria and Lebanon.
Memnon (son of Tithonus) is said to be buried near Paltus in Syria, by the river Badas
Memnon founded the city of Susa, Persia, The wall of the city, the temples and palaces, were constructed in the same manner as those of the Babylonians, of baked brick and asphaltus, The Acropolis was called Memnonium, The Susians have the name also of Cissii. Æschylus3 calls the mother of Memnon, Cissia.
According to the Wikipedia page , Memnon was the King of Aethiopia but his father was the prince of Troy, son of Laomedon. Aethiopia is completely enigmatic.
Αἰθίοψ compounds αἴθω + ὤψ and the latter element is the homologue of אף
. Therefore in Phoenician such a name would front with the ὤψ element. בן־אדם
= ἄνθρώπος (ἁνήρ + ὤψ)אף־רחב
= Εὐρώπη (εὐρύς + ὤψ) cf. Africanus
In the story of Perseus, a story closely tied to the Levant, he marries Andromeda the daughter of the Aethiopian
king Cepheus and his wife Cassiopeia.
Pausanias, Description of Greece 4.9
Red water, in color like blood, is found in the land of the Hebrews near the city of Joppa. The water is close to the sea, and the account which the natives give of the spring is that Perseus, after destroying the sea-monster, to which the daughter of Cepheus was exposed, washed off the blood in the spring.
ξανθὸν δὲ ὕδωρ, οὐδέν τι ἀποδέον τὴν χρόαν αἵματος, Ἑβραίων ἡ γῆ παρέχεται πρὸς Ἰόππῃ πόλει: θαλάσσης μὲν ἐγγυτάτω τὸ ὕδωρ ἐστί, λόγον δὲ ἐς τὴν πηγὴν λέγουσιν οἱ ταύτῃ, Περσέα ἀνελόντα τὸ κῆτος, ᾧ τὴν παῖδα προκεῖσθαι τοῦ Κηφέως, ἐνταῦθα τὸ αἷμα ἀπονίψασθαι
This account is collaborates with Joshua 19:46, a garbled verse 'Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho'
written ומי הירקון והרקון עם־הגבול מול יפו
and ἀπὸ θαλάσσης Ιερακων ὅριον πλησίον Ιόππης
means ὁ δράκων 'The Dragon, a sea-fish or water snake, interchangeable with ὄφις and Pausanias as κῆτος 'any sea-monster' is the word Septuagint as for the Great Fish that swallowed Jonah whom set off from Joppa.
According to Pausanias, the river turned Red and matches the description of one particular river in the Levant, Abraham River (نهر ابراهيم) or Adonis River (نهر ادونيس) that emerges from a huge cavern, the Afqa Grotto.
Each spring at Afqa, the melting snows flood the river, bringing a reddish mud into the stream from the steep mountain slopes. The red stain can be seen feeding into the river and far out to the Mediterranean Sea. Legend held this to be the blood of Adonis, renewed each year. Afqa is associated with the cult of Aphrodite and Adonis.Exodus 4:9
the river shall become blood upon the dry land.
היאר והיו לדם ביבשת
the fish vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
καὶ προσετάγη τῷ κήτει καὶ ἐξέβαλεν τὸν Ιωναν ἐπὶ τὴν ξηράν
ויקא את־יונה אל־היבשה
1. ἔαρ, εἶαρ, ἦαρ , ἴαρα 'blood, early spring
2. εὔροος Ep. ἐΰρροος 'fair-flowing' “Σκάμανδρος” of the body, with the pores and passages open, τὰ ὑγρά, αἷμα.
3. ῥόος, ῥόϝος 'a stream, flow, current; κατὰ ῥόον down stream 'Each spring at Afqa, the melting snows flood the river, bringing a reddish mud into the stream from the steep mountain slopes. The red stain can be seen feeding into the river and far out to the Mediterranean Sea.
'Marvin H. Pope (Yale University) identified the home of El in the Ugaritic texts of ca. 1200 BCE, described as "at the source[s] of the [two] rivers, in the midst of the fountains of the [two] deeps"ויקא
ἔξω (ἐξίημι) send out, take out, let one go out, of rivers, discharge themselves
The name Perseus or Περσεύς also the name for a fish
Aelian, De Natura Animalium 3.28
There occurs in the Red Sea a fish, and, so far as I know, the people there have given it the name of Perseus. And the Greeks call it so, and the Arabians in like manner with the Greeks. For they too call Perseus the son of Zeus, and it is after him that they declare the fish is named. Its size is that of the largest anthias; in appearance it is like a basse; its nose is somewhat hooked, and it is dappled with rings as it were of gold round its body, and these rings begin at the head at right angles to it and cease at the belly. It is armed with large teeth set close. It is said to surpass other fish in the strength and power of its body, neither is it wanting in courage. How to fish for it and how to catch it I have explained elsewhere.
Theologians have also monopolised and corrupted the understanding of the Ugaritic language and culture, such as the books written by mentally unwell people such as Michael Williams and when i search Ugarit in youtube or google, its all theologians, horrendous corruption of the predecessor of Phoenician language.
