Chapter 63: Scota And Temat

section5-chap63It was Scota’s sons or descendants, Hyber and Hymec, that later migrated to Ireland, claiming the land for themselves, renaming the island the land of Scota. 8

The paradox in these various legends is that the time between when Scota left Egypt and went to Spain and then went from Spain to Ireland spans about 800 years. Gardner explains this mystery by announcing that there were two different Scythian/Egyptian marriages with two different Scotas. The first marriage took place circa 1360 b.c.e with Scota and Niul, the prince of Scythia and governor of Capacyront of the Red Sea. The second Princess Scota, with the Irish connection, also married a Scythian prince, Galamh, and bore a son named Eire- Ahmon, who became the ancestral forbearer of the Scott kings of Ireland. It is this second and/or third Scota, daughter of Pharaoh Nekau, 9 who somehow interwove with Milesian descendants in Spain through Breogen, which begat the Irish kingdoms of Tara.

Hyber was one of the source names for Ireland, as “Ireland” was derived from Hyber land, which in Latin was Hibernia and in old English was Iberland , which eventually changed to Iverland and then Ireland. Hyber and his people brought with them the throne/stone of Akenhaten that all subsequent Irish kings were crowned upon; the Akenhaten stone (throne) became synonymous with all the Irish kings of Dalriada. 10

The Irish heritage of Scota eventually migrated to Scotland, with Mor McErc of Dalriada as their leader in the fifth century C.E. Thirteen kings of Argyle held both the Bethel Stone and the Stone of Destiny until 843 C.E. , when Kenneth McAlpin won and united the Scots with the Picts. 11 All this did was merely reunite two related but separate strains of bloodlines, as the Picts, too, were in fairy and Theosophical legend one of three branches of the mysterious Tuatha Denaan we will cover later; the Picts migrated to Scotland in 600 B.C.E. 12 The Stone of Destiny, then, is the Stone of Akenhaten’s throne. It was during the Scottish migration when the two legendary stones were moved to the Scone of Abbey in 844 C.E. 13

Ireland is additionally the land where the lost eleven tribes of Israel were whispered to have migrated after their defeat at the hands of the Assyrians around 721 B.C.E. Ireland, too, was the land that Baruch, scribe to Jeremiah, took Temar, also called Tamar, Teamhair, Tara, and Tamar- Tephi, the very famous daughter of Zedekiah, last king of Judah, after Judah’s defeat and exile at the hands of the Babylonians around 589 B.C.E.
