Bust of Moses and His Hieroglpyhic Name

The hieroglyph above, read from right to left
reads M-S ZVAIGZ-nes [Zvaigznes ="stars"]
which is Moshe, "Star Priest" [of Thebes]*



Today, the "Statue" of Moses above - in black diorite - 
is in the Museum of Art History in Vienna but the base
and feet are in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.

It is the statue of a man whose hieroglyphic name
is transcribed - erroneously - by Egyptologists as Sobek-em-s-af.
 This is Sechemre Schedtaui - also erroneously transcribed ,
the 1st King of Thebes of the 17th Dynasty,
a reign dated by current chronology to ca. 1650-1600 B.C.

and the tale
(See David Rohl's book, A Test of Time, Random House, London, 1995)

- writes Artapanus -
in the reign of Chaneferre (Khenephres),
known as Sobekhotep IV,
who, even by current chronology,
ruled ca. 1700 B.C.

Clemens' Stromata summarizes the writings of Artapanus,
a Jewish historian who wrote Peri Iodaion.
Artapanus is named by Eusebius
in his Evangelicae Preparationis and his
detailed account of the life of Moses
is reported in his Pamphilis, Book 9, Ch. 27, 1-37.

That life story of MOSES
agrees with the Egyptian "SINUHE Story"
- which originated in the Pharaonic 12th Dynasty (!)
at the time of A-MEN-EM-HET III.

It is about a young man who flees Egypt (as does Moses),
goes to Palestine (as does Moses),
where Sinuhe finds the support of Prince Retenju just as Moses
finds the help of "Raguel" in Artapanus, and of "Reguel" viz. "Jitro"
in the Biblical Exodus (2,18; 3,1;4,18; 18,1).

The Pharaoh who first "enslaved" the Hebrews, says Artapanus,
was called PAL-MEN-O-THES and had a city and temple built
at "Kessan" (as Rohl correctly notes, "Kes" in the eastern Delta)
called "Kessan" in the Septuagint and "Goshen" in the Masora, 
which is generally equated with On, Heliopolis or Egyptian Iunu.

The statue of Moses (Sebekemsaf) was found at Armant,
(Ar-Mant is related to Iunu-Month)
which was greatly developed in the 12th dynasty.

Pharaoh PAL-MEN-O-THIS is surely the same as
out of that very same 12th dynasty.
The first syllable has simply been mistranscribed by Egyptologists or Greeks.

It was during the 12th dynasty that territorial expansion against
Kush and Nubia reached its peak, and the story of Moses tells us that
he also campaigned against Nubia and Ethiopia in his youth.
