Book Description

Description, Translation, and Explanation of Babylonian, Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Ugaritic, Anunnaki and Phoenician Cylinder Seals, Slabs, Inscriptions, Statues, Tablets and Symbols. 9th Edition. Vol. 2. Fully Indexed.


Illustrated History of the Civilizations, Religions, Folklore, and Myths of the Middle East, Near East, and Asia Minor.
It was said, "A picture is worth a thousand words."� True, very true!
But what if a picture is hard to understand or does not explain what we are looking at?
This happens quite often in the vast literature and history of ancient civilizations. Especially, when the inscriptions on or under the pictures or illustrations are written in a language we do not understand, such as Cuneiform, Ugaritic, Akkadian, Sumerian, Phoenician, and similar writing systems of the ancient Middle and Near East.
In addition, there are thousands of slabs, cylinder seals, tablets, and obelisks of ancient and/or vanished civilizations, which are hard to decipher.
And in many instances, no pertaining inscriptions or texts were ever provided to explain what the statues, figurines, slabs and tablets represent.
To fully understand the scriptures, texts, epics and literature of Mesopotamia, Sumer, Assyria, Chaldea, Phoenicia, Ugarit, and the Anunnaki, one must become familiar with the meaning (Hidden or revealed) of the inscriptions, the symbolism camouflaged in intricate details, and the religious-artistic-philosophical nuances of the art of the era.
This requires authentic description, translation and explanation of:

• Ancient symbols
• Archeological finds
• Maps
• Seals and Slabs
• Cuneiform inscriptions and writings
• Statues and figurines
• Carving/Illustrations/Drawings
• Familiarity with historical sites, ruins, and cities
• Linguistic analogies
• Et...

This book was written in order to deal with and to explain all these concerns, and above all to provide the readers with sufficient guidance, translation and explanation of major archeological finds, ranging from a figurine to a massive monument.

The author included, translated and explained Mesopotamia, Sumer, Babylon, Akkad, Assyria, Phoenicia most important:

Excerpts from his book "THE MYSTIC CHAPLET". His words of wisdom:

* Generosity hides all vices.
* The credentials of a man are not the diplomas on the walls, and the initials after his name (MS. PhD., etc...) but the warmth in his heart, the fairness in his judgment, and the goodness and beauty he spreads around him.
* When you shake the hand of a gentleman, look him in the eyes. When you shake the hand of a thief, look around.
* Your college degree and fat bank mean nothing to me. What really counts is what you have accomplished after graduation and how many times you let the needy share your meal.

* A wise man once said: A penny saved is a penny earned. The truth I tell you: A penny well spent on the needy, is two pennies earned.
* Do not worry about what people might think or write about you. Worry only, if they think you do.
* Learn, progress, succeed, but from time to time dip your mind in the fountain of your heart.

* Many men got their prosperity because of their first woman, and their second woman because of their prosperity.
* Take once. Give twice.
* Give when nobody is watching. Share in the dark and you shall receive in the light.

* My cats and dogs are more important to me than the biggest front page news in the Wall Street Journal.
* Your world consists of 2 wheels; the Macro wheel which is the universe, and the Micro wheel which is you. Unless the two wheels turn in sync, your chances to succeed in life are minimal.
* You can teach someone how to say I love you in English, but you can't teach him how. Love must come from the heart, not from a dictionary.
* The best way to learn is to keep on learning. If you stop, arrogance will take over. If you continue, arrogance may not stop. But if you do, you stop yourself, and learning alone will not get you a VIP invitation to the most important party in town: Their heart!
* Those who did not live their life to its fullest, remain on the shore. Only those who believed in its rainbow could sail the high seas and ride the winds of success and freedom.

* Before you pass a judgment on others, ask yourself what you would have done if you were in their place.
* Do not fully trust a man who has never lost a thing in his life.
* Watch your enemies once, your friends twice, and yourself all the time.
* A day without a charity is a lost day.

* Don't stretch your feet longer than your bed, if you have a hungry dog at home.
* Fight loudly. Give and forgive silently.
* Always ask a professional baker to cook your bread, even if he takes half of it.
* If you are great, they will hail you. If you are greater, they will trail you. If you become the greatest, they will nail you.



* A house with only one door makes too much noise.
* Bad employer, good check. Good employer, bad check.
* Don't tell me why, show me how.
* Don't feed me, teach me.
* Ten more commandments and we will have ten more priests.

* Lower the fence of your vineyard and the size of your bottles will shrink.
* A man who fears and dares is a brave man. A man who dares and does not fear is a fool.
* Fear those who can see only in the dark.
* You know the man not when he arrives but by what he leaves behind.

* Those who arrive late, always have a reason. Those who have a reason are always late.
* In a parade, always ride the white horse.
* If you are rich, people think you know.
* Count your sheep ten times a day, and once, if you have a high fence.
* Don't milk the cow if your bucket is not handy.
* When you are rich, everybody listens but few hear you. When you are poor, nobody listens and everybody hears you.
* Be yourself when you meet others. Be the others when you meet yourself.

* It takes fifty chinchilla corpses to make one coat, and just one to wear it.
* Don't volunteer if you're not needed, it's the same as giving free advice; your friends don't need it and your enemies wouldn't believe it.
* In a race, always finish first because only your wife and dog will remember you finished second.
* All happy families are alike in their joy. Only unhappy ones are different in their sorrow.


* The most beautiful sight to my eyes, is the smile of the woman I love.
* If you want to know more about the occupants of a house, check first their back yard.
* Measure a man by the size of his heart, not the size of his wallet, and the length of his tongue.
* The strongest man in the world is the one who has loyal friends. Might or a hefty bank account cannot substitute loyalty. A bank account can be overdrawn while loyalty has no spending limits.
* Guests who arrive late are excused only if their gifts arrive on time.
