Presented by Sykes in Aug. 1965 Vol.18 No.4 of the Atlantis Research Journal.


Webmasters note- You can see under the date of 3,961 a very prophetic statement by E. Sykes that a part of the Gulf stream and Caribbean broke up and this may explain a crucial date when that Cuba pyramid and monuments were destroyed, which if that is the case then the pyramid is older then 4,000 B.C. which right in line with my theory that it is not older then 6,000 B.C. monuments in Cuba. This is Ironic how close Sykes got it right on in the light of the western Cuba find ,absolutely amazing!!!!!


The Islands Visited By Sinbad the Sailor, By E. Sykes


An endeavor is in habd to identify the islands visited by Sinbad the Sailor in the course of his voyages.

The problem is complicated by the fact that the text of Sinbad as we now know it was put together about 1300 A.D., while the sources from which it was drawn stretch back to Egyptian Antiquity (The story of the Shipwrecked Sailor, etc. ), to the Classical period (Homer and others), as also to the Celtic Travelers (Maeldune, O’Corra, Braden, etc.).

The Arabian Nights represent the sum total of fairy and magical lore, plus the various travelers tales. They have nothing to do with Islam, except that this furnishes a framework, plus the various items of erotica.

Our task is to see how many of the placers visited by Sinbad are actually in the Indian and Chinese seas, as also whether any of the more striking early centers such as Ponape or Yap are actually mentioned. If any of our readers have ideas on the matter I should be most grateful if they would get into touch with me. E.S.

Two Myths of the Greek Islands, Egerton Sykes


The Island of Santorin, the destruction of which by a volcanic erruption in B.C. 1450 or 1,400 destroyed the Minoan Civilization, formed the subject of an interesting myth, told in the Argonautica. It appears that Euphemus, one of the heroes of the Argo, received from his brother Triton a clod of earth. He was instructed to throw this clod into one of the chasms of Taenaron, but by accident it fell into the sea while the Argo was passing Calliste (Kalleste), also known as Therea, and it grew into an island from which came the people who colonized Libya. The present name of Calliste is Santorin, and it may be taken from the story that it was originally an undersea volcano, which erupted and created a large island, which was peopled by Euphemos and his kindred. This would indicate that this story of the creation of Santorin preceded by some considerable time the arrival of the Greeks in the Mediterranean and, as it is a part of the story of the Argonauts, it would also put their journey back by a long period. I wonder if Professor Galenpoulos has by chance obtained the datings for the arrival of the people who lived on santorin before it blew up?

The sources of this story are in Pindar, Apollonius Rhodius, The Orphic Argonuat, Diodorus and Herodotus. There are possibly several others. At some early period a large meteor or a small asteroid was reported to have fallen on the island of Delos. The story goes that Asteria, daughter of Coeus the Titan and Phoebe, in order to escape the embraces of Zeus changed herself into a quail and plunged into the sea becoming the island of Asteria/Ortygia, which later became Delos. This may well have been a portion of a comet, a real asteroid, or even a chunk of the moon. Oddly enough a similar story is told of Leto, sister of Asteria, who sought refuge from Zeus in Ortygia, then a floating island, and there gave birth to Artemis and Apollo. It may be taken that Asteria and Leto are one and the same, but one wonders whether any geological investigation have been made at Delos to find an explanation for the twin legends. E.S.

1965 here ends, and E. Sykes in 1966 visits North America and the A.R.E. Cayce site.

In light of the Cuba find I have decided to include an article by called

The Caribbean, E. Sykes 1966 begins go to that year on this link
