(500 BC) the so-called father of history gives us a very accurate
description of the
route some Jews followed from
in Egypt to reach lake Tana in Ethiopia!
This makes us think that
the only way Herodotus could describe this event with such an accuracy
is that he was traveling with them! This event took place sometime at
Herodotus did travel a lot keeping always a note from the places he
visited but also describing things like who was the king, about the
population etc. He later put everything in a 'book' which we call it
today 'History by Herodotus'!
The following is an extract
his book concerning the
a prologue, Herodotus
"You will then
disembark and travel along the river for forty days as there are sharp
rocks by the banks of the river Nile as well as many falls through
which you cannot sail!
After marching for forty days you
can then again sail on a boat
for twelve days! That will bring you to a big city called Meroe! This
city is said to be the mother of Ethiopia...
Now from this city on,
traveling equal time as from the Elephantine island to Meroee, you will
come to lake Tana the land of the 'deserters'!
'Deserters' were Egyptians and foreigners (probably Israelites) who
revolted from the Egyptian army and joint afterwards the Ethiopians around the time of
Pharaoh Psametichus around 595 BC! These deserters did settled between the Ethiopian
community and made them more
civilized together acquiring learning knowledge and ways from the Egyptians...
The river Nile is a
known country, adding all together, it takes four months of journey by
sail and road from the Elephantine island to reach the land of the 'deserters' of
whom I spoke!"
What really happened!
