ORPHEUS & GLOW

perceived as Arabic dance, the dabke, in some strange way remind us. But why should we be surprised, given that archaeologists have discovered an ancient settlement identified as Greek on the hill where David later built Jerusalem? Whether they were Greeks, Thracians or Pelasgians - we leave the question to archaeologists, cultural scientists and historians. But... The fact is that through Hellenic, and probably also through Thracian culture, Orpheus reached the Middle East and Egypt.

      According to some scholars, the word ochro means gold in Old Bulgarian, and that is where the name ocher comes from. But it turns out that this word is also in the Greek language: ώχρος [ochros], also in Armenian: օխրա – [okhra]. But with the meaning "yellow"; "pale". In fact, the names of the city of Ohrid (it replaces the Greek word Lyhnidos- "shining") and of the Rhodope mountain, like the mountain of gold or even the sun - Ohrida, but with a Greek transliteration from "O" to "A" - Ahrida, come from the Bulgarian word ochro. Georgians pronounce the same word for gold, but a little harder okro- ოქრო.

       There is a possibility that the Greek word ochros is a loanword from Armenian or Old Bulgarian, when Latin was replaced by Greek as official.

      In the Greek language, the letter "FI" - φ was each pronounced as "PF" or "PH". And at the same time we find inscriptions where the name of Orpheus is written with a letter close to the format of "FI", but not completely closed, whose name is "PSI"- ψ, but pronounced "PS". How did his name sound in all languages: OrFeus, OrPFeus, OrPeus or OrPHeus / OrFey, OrPFey, OrPey or OrPHey?!

      Orpheus of the golden mountain, who heals with music and bright. Orpheus, who is a priest/ shaman of the sun god and is associated not with any place but with a sanctuary like Perperikon/ Perpericum. The Rhodope was a place for gold mining and coinage for many an ancient ruler. The name of the sanctuary comes from perpera - a golden Byzantine coin.

      Sounds like fairy tales, right?

      Are all these assumptions valid? Don't they look like a conspiracy theory? - it's hard to answer. Especially considering that however different things may be in their nature, according to all religious teachings, they or
