Decipherment of the Front and side inscriptions on the Pokotia Monolith The Pokotia signs are found on the front of the statue below the hands.
Whilst looking for improved illustrations of the god who emerged from the sea called in Sumerian legend, Oannes, above top left, I came across similar sculptures in the Father Crespi collection in Ecuador, above centre and right.
Instead of having a "fish head" aspect, these sculptures portrayed instead an "eagle head" aspect.
Another sculpture in the Father Crespi collection, above left, is almost identical to a winged bull figure from Assyria, above right. There was said to have been a huge number of similar and other unidentificable artefacts in the Father Crespi colection, including gold sheets with an undecipherable language.
But the question of these sculptures in particular is whether they are genuine and of a great antiquity, or more recent copies, i.
Although easy to dismiss them superficilally as forgeries, when we look at the subject in greater detail, there are other aspects which suggest there was indeed a Sumerian presence in Ancient South America.
If we look closely at the hand of the winged figure from the palace of Sargon of Akkad, in Assyria, he appears to be holding something which he has just plucked from a sacred plant or tree and has sometimes been described as a fir cone, a sponge, the spathe of a male date palm G.
Hyatt Verrill and Rith Verrill who thought, P "It seems probable that maize was carried from America to Asia by the earliest Sumerian voyagers, but in its new home, where the people were unfamiliar with its proper cultivation and hybridisation, it deteriorated and died out, whereas, in America, where the Indians were familiar with the proper care of corn, it increased and improved.
Maspero, History of Egypt, Chaldea. If we look at the above sculpture, this time from an ancient temple in India, the goddess is also holding in her hand what looks like a head of corn It is usually assumed that the four quarters of Sargon were the territories bounding on his assyrian kingdom, but Sargon also claimed to have made a voyage to the far west, to obtain the metal tin.
Again it is usually assumed that he went to Cornwall for his tin but there were also plentiful supplies in Bolivia so perhaps when he claimed to be lord of the Four Quarters of the World, that world did after all include Bolivia and South America.
It has also been found that there are many Semitic words or roots underlaying the local Aymara laguage in Bolivia. Then there is the name of the oldest inhabitants of the Altiplano, who lived in reed houses and built reed boats just like the Sumerians. They were called the Uru, and in Mesopotamia, one of the oldest or first cities according to G.

Discovery of square plots of ft in Tabasco, Mexico show plots of x Sumerian cubits in the Americas, click for the Atlantis stade At last the Altiplano gives up its secrets! Many measurements in Tiwanaku, Peru and Mexico can be related to Sumerian units. On the other hand if the north and south side had been measured to include the dotted section, then they would measure Sumerian feet, suggesting a platform of Sumerian double yards by 90 Sumerian double yards or x Sumerian feet was originally intended.
See also Tiwanaku cubits The most ancient calendar found at Tiwanaku was based in divisions of the year into 20, and set out in Sumerian cubits. Dietrich Huff Now, 2, metres would be pretty close to 4, Sumerian cubits of Huff tells us that the city was "divided into twenty sectors by a precise geometric system of twenty radial and several concentric streets.
Firuzabad is located south of Shiraz. The town is surrounded by a mud wall and ditch. Alexander of Macedonia destroyed the original city of Gor. Centuries later, Ardashir I, founder of the Sassanid Dynasty, revived the city before it was ransacked during the Arab invasion of the seventh century.
Firuzabad is situated in a low-lying area of the region, so Alexander was able to drown the city by directing the flow of a river into the city. The lake he created remained until Ardashir I built a tunnel to drain it.
He founded his new capital city on this site. It had a circular plan so precise in measurement that the Persian historian Ibn Balkhi wrote it to be "devised using a compass".
And if we try a smaller stade of Sumerian cubits ft or half of the ft stade then the size of the circular complex at 27 stades would be ft or cubits of Firuzabad - the old city 2km in diameter and modern city of Firuzabad.
Note the radial spokes dividing it into 20 sectors. The Firuzabad site was surrounded by a ditch 35 metres wide according to Prof Huff, or 50 metres wide according to Wikipedia, and again, 50 metres in Sumerian cubits would be cubits which sounds more appropriate.
At the center point of the city was a Zoroastrian fire temple 30 m high and spiral in design" - a metre radius circle would be cubits giving a diameter of cubits - leaving cubits each side for the surrounding ditch already described and a temple 30 metres high would be 60 cubits high in Sumerian cubits.
Firuzabad palace sometimes incorrectly called the "fire temple" Prof Huff also adds "This scheme continues the concentric and radiant pattern of the town, at first up to an enclosure wall, forming a twenty-cornered polygon of nearly 8 km in diameter. Beyond this, the radials, consisting of traces of canals, paths, walls, and field borders continue up to 10 km distance from the central tower.
An arrangement of walls on a mountain plateau 6 km northeast could indicate a cemetery. About 10 km southwest, at the outlet of the river from the plain, are the remains of water conduits and of a single arched aqueduct.
In an arid neighboring valley, beyond a mountain ridge, a wall, most probably of an aqueduct, runs exactly north-south in line with the tower beyond the ridge. Firuzabad and plain, satellite view, the plain measures about 13 km 8 miles east-west and about 9 or 10km 6 miles north to south.Sumerian writing in America?
One of the most fascinating archaeological artifacts ever discovered near Tiahuanaco is the famous Fuente Magna Bowl.
SUMERIAN ARTIFACTS AT TIWANAKU? an ancient languages expert, determined that the writing on the bowl "was probably Proto-Sumerian" comparable to writing used by Berbers in the Libyan Sahara years ago. (Ibid) Is Puma Punku ruins, Tiahuanaco, Bolivia. Please look at video. The idea of Sumerian writing exists at Puma Punku, and Tiahuanaco would seem to relate to the late Zecharia Sitchin and his ideas that the Sumerians were interacting with these “space beings” called the Annunaki. Puma Punku is simply put, one of those places where, when you look at those incredible constructions, manipulated with that much perfection, your imagination just fires up, there are so many possibilities at this point, and conventional archaeological explanations just do not suffice. Sumerian writing in America?
The artifact is a ceramic bowl, and it has written on its surface Sumerian cuneiform and Proto-Sumerian hieroglyphic script. Pumapunku or Puma Punku (Aymara and Quechua puma cougar, puma, punku door, Hispanicized Puma Puncu) is part of a large temple complex or monument group that is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, in western .
The Fuente Magna, a large stone dish found on the shores of Lake Titicaca, is covered in proto sumerian writing, so prehaps Sargon's claim was true after all.
Above, measurement of Puma Punku (Tiwanaku) by Alexei Vranich in Journal of . Puma Punku is a large temple complex on the edge of Tiahuanaco. Inca oral and written traditions tell of the site being the location where the father god, Viracocha (god of action, shaper of many worlds and destroyer of many worlds) created Earth and humans.
