Thanks for that, Spiros. All I can add is that Sumerian is the source of ancient Greek and that certain places within modern-day Greece have incredibly interesting names from my perspective. Dodona was mentioned in the context of The Story of Sukurru, which is a comedy.
I’m weighing up the mention of those three boats to the east of the Great Pyramid (not the others) because I have a fairly solid case that might warrant including them. But I’m very wary of making too much use of conjecture/theorizing in my upcoming book which will be an explanation rather than a translation like the last, and certainly don’t want to go down the route of wishful-thinking.
At the same time, Z. Sitchin has polarized discussion of this sacred language to such an extent by his unsubstantiated claims about aliens, that it is the very last place I would set my foot – unless I had a logical reason to. Note that I don’t reject anything out of hand but would need to find them for myself in the texts. He didn’t give references. Do the references exist? I’ve read his books - they were fun to read - and not found them.
It was the placement of those three ships and their distinct form that struck me as significant and made me wonder if there had been any analysis of their measurements and position. Not the others – just those three. It seems not.
