Re: The Hyksos -- historical reality or myth?


Ring of Power is pseudo-historical claptrap. Good conspiratainment is all.

It's always good to dispose of more information. Thanks for your post.
The Hyksos certainly belong to the blurred chapters of History.

Do you mean sŰs’ (shepherds) ?

Flavius Joseph, Against apion, I 14 :
This whole nation was styled Hycsos, that is, Shepherd-kings: for the first syllable Hyc, according to the sacred dialect, denotes a king, as is Sos a shepherd; but this according to the ordinary dialect; and of these is compounded Hycsos: but some say that these people were Arabians.

Has one can see, "Hyksos" started poorly.

Not shepherd kings. Kings of the road, though, akin to the Dukes of Hazard.

They could be simply a literary motif, an anthropomorphization of troubled times in Egyptian society.
