Settling of Atlantean People in
The king of Assyria Salmanassar III mentiones in the report about the in 845 B.C. taken campaign Parsua, the country of the Persian, which was western of the lake of Urmia at the upper Zab. Eight years later he entered further into the mountains and came into the country of the “Madai” the Meder, where he took gifts

One can suppose
with probability that the founders of this new empire, at least in ist upper class, came in their origin from one or more
tribes of Atlantean sources .
The high level of their architecture, the knowledge of metal working, their
military knowledge and that of organisation of an empire are showing
unambiguously that this was not a barbarian folk, as lived in the northern
steppe. The inscriptions of this people at buildings, steles and rock faces ,
but besides this also on devices of
metal and on tiles were made in the beginning in Assyrian language, later on
also in hieroglyphs and in local language, which is related to the Churritian and is not yet deciphered. Also the extended
trade connections to the in the West living Greeks, Italics and Etruscians are pointing out to their origin in the West.

In the East of the
rule area of Urartu as in its southern edge, the
border area to Assur, there had grown several little
“kingdoms”. They were situated partly in nearly not accessible valleys of the
mountainous country and consisted often only in a to a
castle grown rock and an accompanying settlement of a bigger clan or tribe. The
population was initially

Since the time of Schamsi Adad V of Assur (825-812 B.C.) seems ,that the Atlanean element has taken the leading roll under this little “kings”. Urartu and Assur were busy to play off the tribe- and clan chiefs one against the other. By granting in fief towns, which were mostly situated in the rule area of the adversary, that means, in the Urartaeen or Assurean rule area, tried both big powers, to win the “buffer” countries for themselves. In the meantime increased the Atlantean element by steady immigration. Men followed the natural direction of the valleys and came so always further to East and Southeast.

is to respect, that they are handed down only by word of mouth in several
languages one after the other. If existed the written form
,it was often a writing of beginning ,which soon died out again. Also
the meaning of some letters changed in the course of time. The name “Aryanam” is found for example firstly in the oldest part of
the “Avesta”, the down writing of which in

these parts obviously in fields of burial, which are situated around resting
areas near to water places. They consists of low
little hills above chests of stone. Half nomadic Lureans

The parts are long iron swords with handles, decorated with figures, shorter swords from bronze, daggers from both metals, splendid battleaxes, points of lances and arrows, needles for clothing with big heads of animals or with big discs with relief, ornament sheets for clothing, belt fittings and metal containers of all sort. Especially remarkable are the richly decorated big cheek parts of horse snaffles, fittings of war chariots, as a big number of heads of standards. For the latter are an uncommon sort of burial object and over that the mass of heads of standards and splendour and decoration arms surpasses widely the objects of practical use ,one can suppose that there existed also other places of finds , possibly a buried or safe kept treasure. Possibly it came from the capital of the empire of Urartu.
bases nearly completely on motives known also from Assyrian or Urartean objects of art. Over that it remembers at the
considerably more modest burial objects of the first Atlantean
immigrants. One can suppose from that with high probability, that this are arms
and objects which are imported by the Atlantean
immigrants, partly even from their homeland in
finds are known from the land behind the western shore of the
The objects are also here arms and jewellery, partly from bronze, partly from iron. There are sheets and pendants for clothing or the bridle of horses. Also fine engraved belt fittings and kettle from bronze were found. Often were used motives of animals as decoration. For the Armenian mountain area exists especially the place of finds Tepe Sialk which shows especial clear the Atlantean character of the immigrants. It shows in its rests of buildings and the burial objects clearly the in Atlantis used structuring of the society. On the ruins of an old village hill raised a mighty square foundation from air dried bricks and on it was standing the strong house of a feudal chief of a tribe. At the foot of the hill laid the far more humble houses of his followers and the huts of slaves and servants, consisting probably in indigene people. All the settling was surrounded by a wall.
Also the very extensive burial objects of Tepe Sialk are showing clearly the division in three classes. The richest burials of the feudal chiefs. of their family and nearest friends show pretty worked out arms from bronze and iron, neck jewellery , fittings of helmet, shield and belt and fine worked out containers from bronze. The decoration resembles that of Talyche, but is mostly still prettier worked. The burials of second class are also made as stone chests with gable formed stone cover, but have less burial objects. There are containers from clay or a needle for clothing from metal. Completely simple are the burials of third class. The dead were here sometimes laid into a stone chest or a pit made from air dried bricks without cover. There are no burial objects. Following the reports of the excavation, there are two ethnical groups to discern. The long skulls belong to the indigene group and are the lowest social class. The short skulls are feature of the newcomers and chiefs.
After the death of
Assurbarnipal in 626 B.C. the Assyrian power came to
its end and lost one province after the other. So the king of the Medeans Kyaxares around 615 B.C.
felt enough power to attack the Assyrians. After the first failure of the raid
against Ninive he turns against the not so well
fortified Assur . It is occupied in general assault, to deal not the rich
prey with the in the meantime also approaching king of
Nabupolassar took the old culture land of the fertile half moon
and Kyaxares got the mountain lands. To it belonged
obviously also the South East with the
old Elam, the Fars of today, for he had the power, to
form this area new by giving the whole area to only one , instead of before two
Persian princes from the family of the Achemenides
for administration. The seat of this prince was
regulation of the matters in the South and South
Kyaxares died in 584 B.C. and left to his son a big rich country. This began than soon to enjoy the wealth in Atlantean stile. He introduced again the old Atlantean ceremonial and gave in his king seat one shining feast after the other. Also the caste of the priests, which had lost in the rough times of migration its importance and was nothing other than a group of feudal chiefs was anger to regain their preferred position as priest and adviser of the king. This pleased at the other side not to the feudal chiefs from the warrior group, for it lowered their respect and influence. Otherwise had the from indigene old nobility coming chiefs little understanding for from Atlantean sources coming knowledge of the priests, who were now also called magicians. In spite of all prosperity there was so considerable suspense at the kings court.
When the Persian
vassal prince in Elam and Parsa, Kyros,
around 550 B.C. raised against Astyages, many Medean feudal chiefs left the Medean
army with their crowd and moved on to Kyros. Also the
magicians had the meaning that they could reach their aims better with Kyros and gained from him this concerning promises about
their position at the court. Probably the rebellion in

One of it comes from Herodotus and must be regarded carefully, for he liked, to embellish his stories as a teller of fairytales and his sources were often not reliable. After him were the walls of the fortifications blue , white, purple,black and orange painted and the inner walls were covered with sheets of silver and gold. After another report from a later time, coming from Polybios ,was the outer town not fortified at that time, but in the middle was the palace with a strongly fortified citadel. The palace had a roof of tiles made of silver, from which were made after the occupation by Alexander the Great millions of Drachmen.
The only today accessible monumental monuments of Medean sort are a row of rock graves, which resemble in much the Urartean rock work. They show hewn into the rock the façade of a house made of wood and bricks of clay with flat roof. Through a with pillars supported entrance hall one enters in the right angled main room which has partly also supporting pillars. Here are ,hewn into the floor or side walls, right angled hollows as reception of the dead. The stone work shows, that these hollows were in former times closed with stone slabs. The façade of the grave shows symbols as they exist in the near Asian area.
The grave of Sakhna shows a sun disk with wings. At the grave at Kizkapan there is the portrayal of a god with four wings and two round disks. In the first is worked in a little human figure above the crescent of the moon and in the second a star with sixteen rays. Over that there are potrayals of men wearing high boots and trousers under a half long frock hold by a belt. The cover of the head is a baschlik. This is without doubt the common Medean clothing. A man in a long cloth ,who stands opposite to a man in Medean costume, is probably a priest or magician. Between both is a desk resembling altar with a half round top part. Probably a stone ? Star, stone and sun disk are pointing to Kanaan and the Atlantean culture room. Also the figure with the crescent of the moon.
