--------------------------------

There are many etymological connections with Ur, and also written mentions about Aba Raama’s (Aba-Raama was the original name of Abraham) father, Terah or Terho/Torho, the high priest of Ur. His original name was most likely תר (tor) meaning a dove or rather תור, a turtledove. Habirus’ Tor (>Dor> Dorian) and Scandinavian Thor may even derive from the Sumerian high priest Torho whose name was later known also as Tara.

What it comes to Saqqara, the timing matches better to 2400BC.
