The Punic Grimoire: Cadiz and the Goddesses, Part 2: Giving and Freedom are One
Liber was the God of Vineculture (Wine/Intoxication), and Liberty. The name Līber ('free') stems from Proto-Italic*leuþero, and ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₁leudʰero ('belonging to the people', hence 'free'). Libera is the Feminine Liberty Goddess, Magna Mater.
The very Heiroglyph for "Gift", meaning "To Give without contract/purchase", not just like a Present for someone close but that also, is Punic Wax, or Saponified Wax. Soap. Symbolizing success in Carthaginian Culture, used as Paint. And Burned at Gades/Cadiz.
This is the Egyptian Heiroglyph for T
When on the Head it is to the Egyptians a Symbol of Spirit, Soul, Creation, Reincarnation and the Sun. And at least one of the Women was a Midwife, trained at the Ancient Temple in Sais
To us today it is like a Punic Wax Loaf, which could be made into Beeswax Candles, Soap, Incense or Paint. Or itself like a Wax Melt.
The Phoenicians had spread Farming and Gods, Art, Marriage, etc. During the Second Punic wars Spain was called New Carthage, or Nuevo Cartago or Nuevo Kartago. It was ruled by Hannibal Barca, whose last name meant "Thunder" and he inherited by his father. As a child he had been on a mountain in a Mercinary camp run by his father, learning about languages and war. Hannibal worshipped Eshmun, Hera and Hercules, and when Rome declared war on Carthage, Hannibal wasted no time and immediately went across Spain and France rounding up Horse worshipping Tribes. Then followed a route only taken by Hercules before him across the Alps losing 1/3 of his men and all his elephants, supposedly using Fire and Vinegar to destroy rocks along the way.
When he entered Italy he defeated various Roman Generals and Senators. Rome banned the word peace and for 15 years Italy was ruled by Hannibal, who made an alliance with Alexander the Great's, great great great great grandson, and Rome began burying their own people alive to atone to the Gods, and after consulting their Sibylline Books and the Oracles at Delphi, they accepted the Phrygian Goddess Cybele into their Pantheon. The Rural Goddess, the Goddess of the farming Colonies established by the Phoenicians for a thousand years before Rome began to expand. They then followed the advice of the young son of a dead general, went to Carthage and systematically burned it down for months. Destroying thousands of years of History, likely retained in the Library of Alexandria which is now destroyed.
This would also inadvertantly solidify a large part of human history. When Rome accepted Cybele, or Ceres, they won the Third Punic war. They destroyed Carthage, Crucified 6,000 people as sold everyone who hadn't fled into slavery. But as the empire developed they discovered a Holiday among the former Phoenician taught rural communities. They celebrated the Winter Solctice by giving gifts, and worshipped Mithra, God of Contracts, Marriage and Promises. Tying a string on your finger to increase memory of something for later is a Mithraic Ritual. So, the Roman Government became a Mithraic cult, meaning that by winning the war, Rome had been changed forever.
Liber, the Male Plebian God is like Liberty, while Libera the Goddess is like Liberal. Ceres is like Cereal Grains.
Liber and Libera are Wine related Dieties. Ceres is a Work and Harvest Goddess, she has underlings that represent farms Jobs, similar to the Muses being the Arts. Each God being a duty.
Ceres is also the namesake of Wax, which is Cera in Ancient Languages. Beeswax was the first Wax, and the Priestesses used to be called Bees.
The U.S. Founding Fathers were aware of some of this. When Brutus and the Senate killed Cesar they held up a Phrygian Pole. The Phrygian Cap was worn by freed Roman Slaves, so when Rome accepted Cybelle, they brought the Ides of March. Hannibal killed Cesar ultimately, or as Polybius put it "All that befell the Romans was of one man... one mind... Hannibal" -Polybius
The Neolithic Period is called “The New Stone Age”, it ended in 1990 B.C. and began about 10,000 B.C. so this is a period of time that we generally consider to be of about the same level of technological advancement as Native Americans, and we can then safely assume that Native American culture is something like a snapshot into the types of abilities these people would have, looking at for example the Aztec Empire as an example of a highly advanced New Stone Age Civilization. So there was a New Stone Age Society, which has a settlement in Macedonia. And if we then look to what the Greeks themselves had to say about these people that are in the far North East of Greece, we see that they say that these are the Phaiakians, these are a group of people considered to be Hedonists, or people who strive for Pleasure, and Happiness, and Gratification in various ways, maybe seen as decadent by some including the Greeks. They were said to have boats that were far more advanced than the Greeks, and they supposedly have no rudders and their boats themselves know where everything is and take the Phaiakians where they want to go with a mere thought.
If we then look deeper into the Phaiakians, we can see that they are likely associated with Malta. Malta is a Civilization that is also part of this Temple Culture Phenomenon, many modern Scholars seem to be Biasly Judging the Temple Culture, stating that it was less of a Temple and more of an everything, as in it was a place where people would bring Animals they caught and raised, and things they made, or Plants they had, and they Celebrated Births, and Holidays, etc. This seems bias because the fact that Christians have chosen Greek and Roman Government Structures as Temples, then ruled over their States with Basilicas, etc, in that way; is not a more Pure or more Religious way of worshiping, than to have your Ancient Traditions being retained in a Temple. And in fact if we look at History, it seems that the Temple Culture began first, and that they then taught the others how to be Kings and Queens, creating Mystery Schools that were not like Modern Freemasonry, and Jesuits, in that they see themselves as joining an Elite group of established individuals, but these groups were there to simply educate the people.
If we see as the Temple Culture, the Giants of Greek Mythology, the Nephilim of Jewish Mythology, as Civilizing the New Stone Age, as the Masters of Boats, and Masonry, and Weaving, and Domestication of Animals, we can see that the Temple Culture was actually there like a parent, watching over these new Kingdoms and Fraternities being formed. They can be seen as associated with the Oracles at Delphi, and Delos Island before the Greeks converted it. We can see these people as the Inhabitants of Malta, and we can see them as the people who inhabited Athens, when it was connected to Sais, Egypt, before the events that occurred which relate to Zeus birthing Athena from his head, Hera becoming angry and releasing Typhon, something clearly happened there, and this is further evidenced in the weaving competition proposed to Athena, in which Arachne weaves a scene showing Zeus’ rapes. This and the Giants in Macedonia are Evidence of a group of people that were there before what we call the Greeks. And we can see the 600 B.C. Event on the Island of Delos, where all Dead Bodies are removed from the ground and no one is allowed to ever again give birth or die there, as an example of the Greeks ability to erase History, which they clearly able to identify and eliminate so that we would not have it today.
If we look at Dolmen Culture we can see that they exist from the Islands West of Italy, to Spain, Portugal, near France, Amsterdam and Germany, to Ireland and the famous Stone Henge in the U.K., and on to the Scandinavian Balkan area. And no one knows how they got there.
If we now look at the Temple Culture, which is Identified by the Greeks as the Phaiakians, and Greek Myth ties in several ways to Italy and Sicily, which then are Carthaginian Colonies, we can see that these people were in Italy. They were in Greece, but by the time they came to these places they were a different Culture, by the time the Greeks are talking about Giants they are out of the Neolithic Period.
For a clear image of this, we can look to Zeus, who himself comes from Malta, he is said to be a Child of Chronos, who then wants to eat him so he can not be overthrown and Rhea gives Chronos a Stone wrapped in Swaddling Cloth, Chronos eats the stone and then Zeus is raised by Bees in a Cave in Malta. So we see Zeus himself is associated with the Maltese sect of New Stone Age Temple Culture, and then by the time the Greeks are talking about these people to their North called Giants, they are having Zeus kill them and bury them under Volcanoes in Italy.
So these people are a distinct group of people, who existed as a Father type force above the Greeks and Jews, called Zeus by the Greeks, and Giants by the Greeks, and Nephilim by the Jews. We then see Metal Working as the end and result of the War between Zeus and Typhon, as if “and the Moral of the story is” that the Greeks then got Metalworking from Pirates who spoke a language the Greeks could not understand, and then Zeus kills Typhon. So just as we can see the New Stone Age shift to the Bronze Age, we see the Temple Culture become the Fathers of Metal Working, and the Italians being far more in tune with these cultures than the Greeks, but the Greeks having the Monopoly on Literature.
So if we then look back to the New Stone Age, we see Dolmens, and if we look at where the Dolmens are, they are in the places that are Considered Punic. Phoenicians traded tin as far as Britain, and the Punic Roman Emperors are Notorious for paying attention to the Places we see Dolmens.
A Dolmen is a Structure which contains some Rocks which stand upwards, sometimes like Walls, and in kind of a home structure, sometimes in Cylindrical shapes. Then there is a Massive Stone placed on top, a Dolmen is almost defined by the fact that there is a Massive stone on Top, usually a fairly flat stone, that has no explaination as to how it got there. Dolmen are mysterious because no one knows how the Rocks got there, or how the heavy stone got on top. And we can see that they are in the same Regions that Hannibal and his Father, and Brother in Law, were Civilizing. The Punics were the Society before Rome that would go around Civilizing people, so we can see that they are likely a continuation of the Nephilim culture of old. We can see that Hannibal is not only able to round up Celt Iberians and others (and now we see Celts in Ireland), he was able to Defect the people of Italy.
If we then look Cats. We are not really sure where Cats were domesticated, this in itself is a mystery. But we can in fact see that Cats are all over Egypt, they are all over Africa, and then they are all over the World. If you want to catch a Large Cat, which many of them did and Leopard Skins were considered to be for High Priests in Egypt, you would use something as Bait to catch cats, some kind of Catnip type substance. If we further look at the actions of Cats, we can see that Punics, Carthaginians, had Hemp, Marijuana, from India. The Carthaginians are fairly well established at this point to have regular contact with India, or to have Forefathers at some point that came from or combined with a Culture from India. This Marijuana and Hemp would have likely been seen as similar in effect on Humans as the Catnip or other substance on the Cat, as we make the same comparisons today.
We can see that the Gall Fruit is Native to North Africa, in the exact region of Carthage, and us used in Roman Ink. So we can see Carthage as like a Rosetta Stone.
In Greek Myth, we see Hercules is a Hero that fights the Giants, without Hercules there would be no defeat of the Giants, he is their downfall. But if we look at Carthage, and particularly New Carthage, in Portugal and Spain under Carthage, we can see that Hannibal worships Hercules and Hera, and Eshmun. Eshmun is a form of Imphotep, and a Healing God, meaning Hannibal was likely very aware of the History between Sais, Egypt, and Athens, Greece, Hera is the God who releases Typhon and is Angry the Giants died, and Hercules is then the founder of several Roman towns. Why then, would Hannibal not only worship Hercules, but put images of himself and his Father both as Hercules on his Coinage? It seems that there used to be a different view of Hercules, and his name was Melqart in Carthage, so there is another side to that story.
We then see that after Hannibal goes to Italy, and brings together the Spanish and French and Portuguese Tribes to then fight Rome, and defect Italians from the Romans. We can see that there was likely already some type of connection between these people, likely because Hannibal was Temple Society descendant, Hannibal was from the Culture of Malta and the Dolmens, he was these people. Rome then had to adopt Phrygian Deities, including Cybelle, and they had to allow Unics under Roman Law, and though it was illegal for a Roman to be a Unic, they allowed it in their Society. And this Deity, Cybelle, was put in a very important Temple of Victory in Rome. So now, this made it where this connection that Hannibal had to the Ancients, that Hannibal had to the Italians, and to the Iberian Peninsula, was then counteracted by a new found connection between Phrygia, modern Turkey, and Rome. And Rome later moved their Capitol from Italy, to Turkey under Constantine, this being retained in the song “Istanbul not Constantinople” which is about the name being changed.
205–204 BC: During the Second Punic War, upon consultation of the Sibylline Books, an image of Cybele was transferred from Pessinos (Pessinous or Pergamon) to Rome. An embassy was sent to Attalus I of Pergamon to negotiate the transfer. Publius Cornelius Scipio Nasica and Claudia Quintawere said to have received the image of Cybele at Ostia on her arrival in 204 BC. Cybele's image was placed within the Temple of Victory on the Palatine. In honour of Cybele a lectisternium was performed and her games, the Megalesia, were held.The image of Cybele was moved to the Temple of the Magna Mater in 191 BC when the temple was dedicated by Marcus Junius Brutus in the consulship of Publius Cornelius Scipio Nasica. A fragment of Valerius Antias from Livy's Ab Urbe Condita36.36.4 records that Megalesia were again held in 191 BC and that "[they] were the first to be held with dramatic performances".
So then Carthage is Destroyed. This Colony would have been like Delos in terms of Trade, Carthage was like a 2nd Giza, like Alexandria in a way, which were both not too far away and had recently been overtaken by Alexander. Alexander had made himself Heir to the Egyptian throne, and after his death at a Young Age, Alexander’s throne then went to Ptolemy and Aristotle, his Tutor. Alexander became Emperor of Phrygia, and ruler of everything. So Carthage would not only be the main point of Trade between Deeper Africa and the Mediterranean, which is well established, Carthage would have been like “The other Option”, Carthage was somewhere you could go that was like Egypt, like Delos, like Athens, like these other places, but it was a Society with no walls for Protection, it did not need them. It was a place that was a center point for something much larger, Carthage had Hanno the Navigator, and all kinds of advanced Technology for the time. They were the Premiere Civilization. So when Rome destroyed Carthage and burned it systematically for weeks, using the Beeswax as Fuel, and with the knowledge that they were the Phoenix, hoping they could burn this Phoenix into oblivion. The Punics then fled to the Ancient Dolmen, Temple Culture Homelands, Mauritania, Macedonia, Croatia, etc. These are places where they would be safe, and we have clear Evidence of them fleeing to Brittium (Hannibal goes to Brittium), as well as Mauratania, they would likely go to Macedonia given the Ancient connection, and then also to Ireland and the U.K., which we can see in various Instances.
