The Nephilim Giant Orcus (INSPIRED) JRR Tolkien’s Orc’s


The origins of the Nephilim giant Orcus may have lain in Etruscan religion. The so-called Tomb of Orcus, an Etruscan site at, Tarquinia, is a misnomer resulting from its first discoverers mistaking as Orcus a hairy, bearded nephilim giant that was actually a figure of a Cyclops. The Romans sometimes conflated Orcus with other gods such as Pluto, Hades, and Dis Pater god of the land of the dead another ancient mystery. The name “Orcus” seems to have been given to his evil and punishing side, as the god who tormented evildoers in the afterlife. Nephilim giants Like the name Hades (or the Norse Hel, for that matter) “Orcus” could also mean the land of the dead.
