Bryant, Jacob

jacob-bryantJacob Bryant (1715-1804) was an English antiquarian and mythologist. Although he denied the reality of Troy, he was happy to declare that the ‘Atlantians’ were descended from Ham, one of Noah’s sons and that they settled in Phrygia (part of modern Turkey) and Mauritania (North-West Africa). These comments can be found in one of his best known works, New System Or an Analysis of Ancient Mythology (1774 ed. Vol.1 p.387), which can now be read online(a).
