EARTH IS THE AIM 6 : Exoduses and survivors

Part 2 : Peoples of the sea

Chapter 8 : The Italics of the South

Italians

You can now understand : All Italy was conquered about 3 to 4000 years before today by the people of the sea , more or less peacefully

The People of the Sea are composed by of a multitude of ethnic and sub-ethnic groups

The main ethnic group is the Venetian

The Venetian themselves are composed of many sub-ethnic groups

The official story based on linguistic backgrounds combined with the country of residence , called them : italics

Italic languages

The Italic languages were related to the Indo-European languages

They were mainly spoken in Italy but also in the Balkans and Central Europe

The people speaking these languages were called italics

The italicized language of Latium and Ancient Rome, was Latin

Its evolution created the Roman languages

All other Italic languages are extinct , supplanted by the Latin

The alphabet of the Italic languages is based on the Greek alphabet

The main influences are Greek , Venetian , Etruscan and Celtic

Main Italic languages are: Samnite, marse, marrucin, pélignien, vestinien, Sabine, equë, Volscian, Umbrian, picene, Lucan, Faliscan, Latin, Venetian, Liburnian, Szekler, Ligurian, Etruscan and Illyrian

Italics

The italics were not from Italy

They colonized Italy from 3rd to 2nd millennium coming from the Balkans, but also the south of France and the east coast of Spain up to the south of Valencia

The main emphasis ethnic groups are: Aurunci, Ausones, Bruttians Campanian Capenates, Elymi, Etruscan eques, Euganean, Faliscan, Frentani, Hernici histres, Iapyges, Latin, Lepontians, Ligurian, Lucan, Marrucini, Marsi, Messapii Oenotrians, Umbrian, Opics, Oscan, pélignien Picenians , Sabine Samnite, Sicani, siceliotes, Siculans, Sidicini, tauriniens, and Volscian Venetian Vestinians

Southern italics

The people of southern Italy have often changed places In summary, during the early invasions of the Sea Peoples, the Siculans occupied central and southern Italy

Then came the Oscan, who chased the Umbrian north and Siculans to South

When the pressure was too great, almost all of the Siculans leave for Sicily where they had to mix with the Sicanis Sicanis Sicanis arrived from Illyria, installed themselves on the banks of the river Sicanos, the current Jucar, in the present province of Valencia in Spain They will be pushed out more or less peacefully by the Ligurian, an other People of the Sea, which had colonize the north west of Italy, southern France and the Spanish coast up to the south of Valencia

They will then establish the Big Liguria

The Sicanis had then to take refuge in Trinacria

The name comes from the ancient Greek Trinakria, which means three points

The three points are: the Western tip of Trapani-Marsala, the Northeastern tip of Messina the Southeastern tip of Syracuse

They called the island conquered: Sicania

According Favorin of Arles, old Sicanis are regarded as the first inhabitants of Sicily

They will have then to absorb the migration of Elymis After the capture of Troy, Trojans, arriving by sea in Sicily and settled there

Thucydides wrote that they had fled from Troy and they are sons of Élymos, a bastard son of Anchises

After a tour in the Mediterranean area, they settled in Sicily relatively peacefully in the vicinity of Sicanis

Under the name of Elymis they founded Erice and Egesta

Siculans

The Sicanis then suffered the invasion of the Siculans at the 13th century B.C.

The Siculans, forced by Oscans and Opics, crossed the Straits of Messina

They defeated the Sicanis and drove them south and west of the island

They then called the conquered island: Sicily

They occupied the most fertile parts

But they were later invaded at their turn by the Phoenicians who set up the ports, then by Greeks who drove the inside of the island …

Oscans

Oscans, opsci in Latin, take their name from the goddess of fertility Ops , Venus of Illyria

They will gradually occupy the south of Italy

They had a unit of area measurement: The vorsus, which amounted to 8640 Roman square feet

Heinrich Nissen assessed the Oscan foot at 0.2749 meters

They practiced animals growing and fishery , and manufactured ceramics plates were recently discovered as well as vases decorated with fish motifs

It seems that they are politically organized in city-states

They spoke Oscan, an Italic language and used their alphabet or the Etruscan alphabet for those leaving near them A

ll these features and their religion including the mother goddess and other Hindu deities, prove that there are not a primitive people, but a population of the Peoples of the Sea

Messapiis

Messapiis, came from Illyria, and they had occupied the Southeastern Italy coast today Puglia

This invasion, more or less peaceful, will increase the pressure of the Oscans on the Siculans, which will then have to settle permanently in Sicily

Their capital was Brention, meaning “Deer horn” in Illyrian, which was Latinized by Brundǐsǐum, the current Brindisi, Adriatic port

Although they came from Illyria which does not seem questionable, Herodotus and Virgil attribute their a Cretan origin

Given that this is a People of the Sea, this hypothesis is not incompatible, since before arriving in Illyria, they were passed by Crete, and a rearguard was able to reach the Messapii later

Messapia, maritime civilization

In Messapus the most important port is Gnathie

But this is only one of many Messapii ports covering the Adriatic coast in southern Italy They line from north to south over almost 160 km

The Mediterranean maritime trade is attested by numerous archaeological finds from external and particularly large circular Mycenaean vases

Messapian Technology

In the ruins of the port of Gnathie have been found ceramic of the 16th century B.C. Metallurgy is also present

They had their own language: the Messapian

We found about 260 inscriptions in Messapian

Their megalithic culture and technology rank look like as Atlantean, and like all other Peoples of the Sea , They are mariners and merchants, and hence, also warriors

Megaliths of Messapia

One of the best known is the dolmen Placa near Lecce

Many dolmens were reused by Christians

In Messapia were found many small dolmens, menhirs and individual mounds: the “mirrors”

They are called in Italian: specchia megalite

In fact they look like tombelles of Britain, they are many near the Gulf of Morbihan, including Bono and Baden But many tombelles are not listed as the owners of the land concerned do not want to suffer the fierce and costly tyranny of official Archaeological Services

And as well in Britain than in Puglia, we do not know their use
