Noah, (b. )
Note: In his old age Noah shared the world with his sons: for Ham he intended the western region, for Japheth the northern region, but for Shem the southern region, with those parts which will hereafter be marked out in the division of the earth into three parts. In the time that the sons of these men were in the world, then increased forthwith the desire for riches and power, from the fact that they knew many crafts that had not been discovered before, and each one was exalted with his own handiwork; and so far did they carry their pride, that the Africans, descended from Ham, harried in that part of the world which the offspring of Shem, their kinsman, inhabited.

Ham, (b. )
Note: In his old age Noah shared the world with his sons: for Ham he intended the western region, for Japheth the northern region, but for Shem the southern region, with those parts which will hereafter be marked out in the division of the earth into three parts. In the time that the sons of these men were in the world, then increased forthwith the desire for riches and power, from the fact that they knew many crafts that had not been discovered before, and each one was exalted with his own handiwork; and so far did they carry their pride, that the Africans, descended from Ham, harried in that part of the world which the offspring of Shem, their kinsman, inhabited.
And when they had conquered them, the world seemed to them too small, and they smithied a tower with tile and stone, which they meant should reach to heaven, on the plain called Sennar. And when this building was so far advanced that it extended above the air, and they were no less eager to continue the work, and when God saw how their pride waxed high, then he sees that he will have to strike it down in some way.
And the same God, who is almighty, and who might have struck down all their work in the twinkling of an eye, and made themselves turn into dust, still preferred to frustrate their purpose by making them realize their own littleness, in that none of them should understand what the other talked; and thus no one knew what the other commanded, and one broke what the other wished to build up, until they came to strife among themselves, and therewith was frustrated, in the beginning, their purpose of building a tower. And he who was foremost, hight Zoroaster, he laughed before he wept when he came into the world; but the master-smiths were seventy-two, and so many tongues have spread over the world since the giants were dispersed over the land, and the nations became numerous.
In this same place was built the most famous city, which took its name from the tower, and was called Babylon.
And when the confusion of tongues had taken place, then increased the names of men and of other things, and this same Zoroaster had many names; and although he understood that his pride was laid low by the said building, still he worked his way unto worldly power, and had himself chosen king over many peoples of the Assyrians. From him arose the error of idolatry; and when he was worshiped he was called Baal; we call him Bel; he also had many other names.
But as the names increased in number, so was truth lost; and from this first error every following man worshiped his head-master, beasts or birds, the air and the heavenly bodies, and various lifeless things, until the error at length spread over the whole world; and so carefully did they lose the truth that no one knew his maker, excepting those men alone who spoke the Hebrew tongue,---that which flourished before the building of the tower,---and still they did not lose the bodily endowments that were given them, and therefore they judged of all things with earthly understanding, for spiritual wisdom was not given unto them. They deemed that all things were smithied of some one material.

Japheth, (b. )
Note: The father of all the Indo-European peoples, it would be surprising in deed if his name had gone unremembered among them. As it is, we find that the early Greeks worshipped him as Iapetos, or Iapetus, whom they regarded as the son of heaven (Ouranos) and earth (Gaia), the father of many nations. Likewise, in the ancient Sanskrit vedas of India he is remembered as Pra-Japati, the son and ostensible Lord of Creation. As time went by, his name was furthur corrupted, being assimilated into the Roman pantheon as Iupater, and eventually Jupiter. None of these names are of Greek, Indian, or Latin origin (although some claim Jupiter is a corruption of 'Deus Pater' -- God Father), but are merely corruptions of the original name Japheth. Both the early Irish Celts and the early Britons traced the descent of their royal houses from Japeth, as did also the early Saxons who corrupted his name to Scaef

Gomer, (b. )
Note: He was the founder of the Cimmerians who settled originally on the shores of the Caspian Sea. They were later driven away by the Elamites. At the time of the Babylonian Exile, the Jews knew them as the tribes that dwelt in the 'uppermost parts of the north' (Exekiel 38:6). The Assyrians referred to them as the Gimirraya. Esarhaddon (681-668 B.C.) records his defeat of the Gimirrai; whilst King Ashurbanipal tells us in his records of the Cimmerian invasion of Lydia in the days of the Lydian king Gugu around the year 660 B.C.

The nation of Illyria found it's name from Illyrius, the son of the Cyclops, Polyphemus, and his wife, the sea nymph, Galatea. Their three sons, Celtus, Galas, and Illyrius left Sicily and ruled over the people named after them - the Celts, the Galatians, and the Illyrians. Illyrius had many sons and daughters of which the Illyrian tribes like the Ardiaei, Autariatae, Dardani, Delmatae, Encheleae, Liburni, Paeones, and Taulanti received their name.

Illyrius would probably be a descendant of Gomer -- ph

Magog, (b. )
Note: His immediate descendants were known as the Magogites, being later known to the Greeks as the Scythians, according to the testimony of Josephus (1.vi.1), However, given the subsequent history of the people of Ashchenaz, who are far more certainly identified as the later Scythians (Gk. Skythai, and Assyrian Askuza), it is more likely that the early Magogites were assimilated into the peoples of Ashkenaz, thus making up merely a part of the Scythians hordes. The early Irish Celts traced their own lineage from Japheth through the line of Magog.

Madai, (b. )
Note: "The Medes consist of the following tribes: the Busae, Paretacenians, Struchates, Arizanti, Budians, and Magi. These are all the tribes of the Medes there are."
--Herodotus, Histories 1.101

His descendants were the Madaeans, who are better known to us as the Medes. The Assyrians recorded the name as Amada; the Greeks as the Medai; and the Old Persian inscriptions speak of them as the Mada. The earliest surviving reference to the Medes that is found in secular documents, appears in the inscriptions of Shalmaneser III, King of Assyria 858-824 B.C., in which he tells us that he invaded the land of the Medes to plunder them of their fine horses. Both Strabo and Herodotus confirm the fact that the Medes were of Indo-European (Japhetic) origin, and we know also that their language was of this group. After 631 B.C., the Medes joined with the people of Askuza and Gomer in an attmept to throw off the Assyrian yoke.
--Cooper, 201.


According to one source, Madai is identified with Shen Nung, who begat Ian and Medes. Ian went to China and was known as Yan.

The Archaemenian inscriptions refer to them as the Yauna. Homer tells us in the Iliad that Iawones was the progenitor of the Ionians (Gk. Iones), while the Hebrews knew the Greeks as the Jevanim.

Tubal, (b. )
Note: The descendants of Tubal first come to our notice in the inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser I, king of Assyria in about 1100 B.C. He refers to them as the Tabali whose original area of settlement (i.e. Tabal) was adjacent to Tegarma. Subsequently Josephus recorded the name of Tubal's descendants as the Thobelites, who were later known as the Iberes. Their land, in Josephus' day, was called by the Romans Iberia, and covered what is now the Republic of Georgia whose capital to this day bears the name Tubal as Tbilisi. From here, having crossed the Caucasus mountains, this people migrated due north-east, giving their tribal name to the river Tobol, and hence to the famous city of Tobolsk.

Meshech, (b. )
Note: The descendants of Meshech are often spoken of in close association with those of Tubal, the Assyrians for example mentioning Tabal and Musku, whilst Herodotus writes of the Tiberanoi and Moschoi. A very much earlier reference to the people of Meshech is an inscription of ca. 1200 B.C. which tells us how the overran the Hittite kingdom; and an inscription of Tiglath-pileser I of Assyria from ca 1100 B.C., who tells us that, in his won day, the Muska-a-ia were able to put into the field an army of 20,000 men. The activities of this same people are also subsequently reported by Tukulti-ninurta II, Ashurnasipal II, Sargon, and Shalmaneser III, the last of whom refers to them as the Mushki. Josephus knew them as the Mosocheni (LXX Mosoch), whom, he says, were known in his own day as the Cappadocians. Some later writers have pointed out that the name of Meshech is preserved in the old tribal name of the Muscovites of Russia, after whom Moscow is named. Such an identification, it must be said, is not at all unlikely, especially when we consider the subsequent history of their historically close associates the people of Tubal, and the fact that the city is still known in the Russian tongue as Moskva, an exceedingly close, not to say identical relationship to the Assyrian form, Musku.
--Cooper, 204.

By the Georgian tradition, the name of the Mosch-Meschs is connected with the name of the Iberian capital - Mtskheta, In any case, there can be little doubt that the population who settled in Mtskhela were the bearers of the Hittite-Analolian cultural traditions. According to the scholars, the old Georgian gods of Mtskheta like Armazi, Zadeni, Gatsi and Ga correspond to the Anatolian deities: Arma, Santa, Atis and Kibela3.

As to some Georgian archaeologists, the active settlement of a new population, probably the Meschs, the bearers of the Hittite-Asia Minor traditions in the north, in Mtskheta, had already begun in the second part of the fourth century BC, and this fact caused the spread of a new type of culture in Eastern Georgia which was quite different from the local Late Bronze - Early Iron age traditions4.

It is remarkable that Josephus Flavius, the Jewish-Roman historian of the first century AD, considered the Moschs, as well as the Iberians, as being of Anatolian origin. In his commentary to the biblical "Meshech" he wrote that the Mosocheans were derived from Meshech and that they afterwards received the name of "Cappadocians", though from the designation of their capital "Mazaca", it is obvious that the name of all their tribes was the same. In the text of Eustates, Erzbishop of Antiochia, of the first half of the fourth century, as well as in the "Chronography" of the Byzantine writer Leon the Grammatikus, the name of this tribe is identical with the name of the ancient Georgian tribe of Meshs - ?es?????. The Georgian tribe of the Meschs lived in the Classical and Medieval times in the Moschian mountains - between Erzurum, Kars and Batumi.

By the information of Leo Allazius in the commentary to Josephus Flavius' above-mentioned fragment, the Meschians were a people known by the old authors as Moschikoi or Mosynoeci. At first they lived in the Pontic littoral and afterwards they had become Cappadocians, but finally they once again were forced to move to the north. It is known that Leo Allazius was acquainted with many books which are now lost.

Tiras, (b. )
Note: Merenptah of Egypt, who reigned during the 13th century B.C., provides us with what is so far our earliest reference to the people of Tiras, recording their name as the Tursha (or Turusha), and referring to them as invaders from the north. The Greeks later knew them as the Tyrsenoi, a nation of marauding pirates. Josephus identifies them as the tribe who were known to the Romans as the Thirasians, and who we know as the Thracians. They were a 'ruddy and blue eyed people', who spent most of their time in a state of 'tipsy excess', as one authority puts it! Tiras himself was worshipped by his descendants as Thuras, (i.e. Thor) the God of War. The river Athyras was named after him, and it is not at all unlikely that the Etruscans, a nation of hitherto mysterious provenance, owe to him both their name and descent.
