|01:34 pm - Esus in Algeria (fighting the French, I'm sure)|
Ladies and gentlemen:
I mentioned that I found an inscription relating to Esus recently. Well, PICTURES!
They're on my "About Esus" page that I've built (Quick Link to the spot on the page).
If you just want to look at the pictures I found, and don't care about what I think about them, then they're here:
What really catches my eye? That sand-dollar-looking-thing on the first pic. And the birds hanging out around those trees with the anchors around 'em on the other two pics.
Is it just me, or is this damn cool?
(tlachtga, I'll give you a copy of both articles from this site at Summerland.)

Don't ask me why, the 'reply to comment' link is down. :P
Anyway, I still don't understand. Picture 2 -- were those three separate reliefs found in three separate places? Or were the first and third togther? I'm confused as to where these came from and if they were all related to Amanda. Because if that one inscription is a memorial, birds (are especially doves) are common on graves. Now, I'm not sure when that started, how Biblical it got, and all of that, but I do know knowing that piece of infromation is relevant.
Also... anyone gonna translate that French? I can't take French without my parents hating me, but damn how I wish I could read this kinda dealie...
"Il existe à Cherchel trois plaques ou fragments de plaque présentant ces symbols"
"There exists in Cherchel three plates or fragments of plate presenting these symbols"
Basically, these plates were all found in Cherchel. I'm unsure preceisely where in Cherchel they were found, though.
Let's go to Africa sometime and see this stuff for ourselves. We'll get some Esus shoes for good look and just go roving until we find the key.
