The Photo and the Question

By , October 2, 2007 11:06 am

One of my readers left a comment in the feedback section, so I though that I would share with you this information. There were 2 questions involved.

1- Why a dagger in the site’s logo? Is there a story behind it?

Actually, this is not a dagger, it is a sword. I have always been fascinated with the weapons of ancient civilization, and there is a lot of research on what a roman sword looks like, a Greek sword, a Japanese sword, etc…

This one is a Canaanite sword, one of very rare finds in this domain that I could find.

2- The second question is about the difference between Phoenicians and Canaanites.

There are many theories out there:

1- They are one and the same people (And that is my belief)
2- The sea people settled in Lebanon after their invasion, intermarried with the existing Canaanites and these are the Phoenicians.
3- The sea people landed in Palestine and they became the Palestinians and had no effect of the Canaanite/Phoenician population.
4- And probably many others

In all my linguistic research, I have not found any single inscription where the Canaanites refer to themselves as Phoenicians. It simply does not exist. The people who lives in Byblos, Beirut, Saida, Sour, etc…, call themselves Canaanites in all their inscriptions.

Therefore, the language they spoke is actually Canaanite. The Greeks referred to these people as “Phoenicians” in all their records, and there are historical events recorded in Canaan as “Canaanites”, and at the same time, recorded in Greece as “Phoenician”. This is an evidence that these are one and the same people.

As for the sea people, there is even doubt that they existed at all. The only surviving inscriptions are to be found in Egypt, and only in Egypt, which leads many historians to believe that it was a “made up” account by the Pharaoh, to leave a document of great achievement.

In my opinion, the Canaanites called themselves Canaanites, and the Greeks and the west called them Phoenicians.
