Etelenty (L)



Etelenty, according to Frank Joseph(c), was the name used by the ancient Egyptians to describe a “land that has been divided and submerged by water” [104.110]. He further claims that the history of Etelenty was inscribed on the pillars of the temple of Neith at Sais [104.254] and that Solon hellenised Etelenty into Atlantis.

Joseph based his claim on the work of Dr. Ramses Saleem, who offered a new translation of The Egyptian Book of the Dead [671]. He also claims that the Egyptians came from Atlantis in 50,509 BC when they began building the pyramids. A scathing review(b) of Saleem’s book casts doubts on the credibility of both Saleem and Joseph.
