Hero Heraklez

(Nov. 23, 2022) Demons and Heroes are human-like spirits which arose after lordification had permeated Druid culture. They may be associated with the Indo-European culture. Heraklez was the fighter of the life powers represented by the sun god Hu against malfunctioning motion powers from both its astrological source and magical emotion source.

Traditional Druid writing direction texts are labeled blue with new Greek style writing direction texts labeled white. The Druid style writing direction describes what is happening while the Greek style writing direction commands what should be done. During this transition time between Akkadian and Greek the Druid culture was still perceived to be the source of ancient spiritual wisdom.

Heraklez (Herakles) during this time period is identified by his wearing of an animal skin instead of carrying it as a shield on his arm. Positive identification is provided by his name label of "Heraklez." The shield bearers represent the openings through the sky-shell which are being forced to block divine life flows (fertility fluids) by magic. Notice one shield bearer has started to retreat.

Sick Sun with No Snakes (330 BCE)

A later version of the sick sun which the Greeks called a Gorgon. This one is from the north Aegean Island of Thaso and dates to between 400 and 300 BCE. It is the same sick sun as  shown on the shield but with longer teeth and no snakes. Originally the sharp teeth simply represented the sun's rays and only later did they become fangs. This image continued to evolve becoming the Green Man seen on Medieval Cathedrals. It is now at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. (Shakko Creative Commons 2009)

Heraklez Fighting Magical Ibexes (Swans) (500 BCE)

This Etruscan Krater was found in central Italy in 1863 and it shows Heraklez morphing into his classical style with him holding a lion skin instead of wearing it. He is out hunting birds so his weapon is a sling. The letters are too indistinct to read in this photo (Louvre 1863)
In 1546 the Farnese Hercules was found in the ruined Baths of Caracalla in Rome (built 206-216 CE). It is now at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples. It is 10 feet 5 inches high.

Farnese Hercules with "Glykon" Inscription, Greece 350 BCE

(January 5, 2024) This statue has a rare combination of Greek and Alphabetic Akkadian texts which was composed during the transition to Greek writing after 499 BCE during the Greco-Persian wars. It is also significant because it mentions Logos (Attunements). Because of this text, it is likely the original statue and not a later Roman copy as assumed. The text reads:


  1. Attunements (Logos) can weave the activity of revelations
  2. Hope for Hu can reveal those Yahu-powered nourishments 
  3. EPOIEI (Greek for "Do it")

This figure of the statue is identified as Hercules because he was leaning on a club having a lion head hanging from the handle. The lion's pelt is also drapped from the handle. Hercules was a fighter and defender of humans for the life powers represented by the sun and storm god Hu, life-network editing goddess Ayu, and life-form manifestation god of Yahu.

It is called "Farnese" after the rich Italian family who were looting the luxurious public Roman Baths built by Roman emperor Caracalla (dedicated in 216 CE) in 1546. His workmen brought this statue from Greece.  It had been broken into 3 main parts during one of the lootings of Rome as the western empire collapsed. The head, torso, and legs had to be reassembled. The right hand is still missing.

The sculptor of the original Weary Hercules was a Greek named Lysippos or one of his school. They were responsible for the change in art style from the Athenian classical style to this more realistic style seen in the Hellenistic age.  Lysippos was born at Sicyon on the northern coast of the Peloponnese around 390 BC This area was always allied with Sparta against Athens so his work tended to be counter-Athenian. He was a worker of bronze in his youth. He taught himself the art of sculpture, later becoming head of a school located at Argos and Sicyon. Commentators noted the coherent balance of his larger than life figures which were leaner than the ideal represented by Polykleitos of the Athenian school. His large statues also had proportionately smaller heads giving them the impression of greater height when looked at. He was famous for his attention to the details of eyelids and toenails.

His pupil, Chares of Lindos, constructed the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World but one which no longer exists.
