Hanebu (Haou-Nebout) is an Egyptian term that apparently means from “behind the islands” and is claimed by Frank Joseph to be a reference to the Sea Peoples. The same idea is promoted by Ellis Peterson(b). However, it is more generally accepted that the name was the one by which the Egyptian first identified the Greeks(a), which certainly seems more plausible.
Pierluigi Montalbano, the Sardinian researcher,>discussess in two papers the Hanebu and their possible association with the Atlanteans and/or Minoans(c)(d)!<
>Fabio Marino in a paper entitled The Atlantis of the Egyptian the author engages in a detailed examination of the meaning of Haou-Nebout(f), but is also less than certain about of its meaning.<
The name has also been applied in more recent times to some of the Nazi secret flying machines that were in development towards the end of the war(e).
