Ancient Origin of Medes, Wizards. The Medes, people of the Mada, appear in history first in 836 BC. Earliest records show that Assyrian conqueror Shalmaneser II received tribute from the “Amadai” in connection with wars against the tribes of the Zagros.
His successors undertook many expeditions against the Medes. At this early stage, the Medes were usually mentioned together with another steppe tribe, the Scythians, who seem to have been the dominant group. A link here between Sorcery and the Scyth.
They were divided into many districts and towns, under petty local chieftains; from the names in the Assyrian inscriptions, it appears they had already adopted the religion of Zoroaster. but only one of these is positively identified as Iranian.
A second report from 700 BC lists 26 names; of these, 5 seem to be Iranian, the others are not. Like I’ve said before an assimilated force of multiple cultures.Sargon in 715 BC and 713 BC subjected them up to “the far mountain Bikni,” i.e. the Elbruz (Damavand) and the borders of the desert. If the account of Herodotus may be trusted,
the Medes’ dynasty derived its origin from Deioces, a Mede chieftain in the Zagros, who was, along with his kinsmen, transported by Sargon to Hamath in Syria in 715 BC. This Daiukku seems to have originally been a governor of Mannae subject to Sargon, prior to his exile. In spite of repeated rebellions by the early chieftains against the Assyrian yoke, the Medes paid tribute to Assyria under Sargon’s successors, Sennacherib, Esarhaddon and Assur-bani-pal, whenever these kings marched in with their fierce armies. Magus A Magus was a Zoroastrian astrologer-priest from ancient Persia, from which is derived the terms magic, magician, and also referred to as a sorcerer or wizard. The English term may also refer to a shaman. The best known Magi are the Wise Men from the East in the Bible. But I believe this was deception, an excellent way to keep your kingdom hidden if East was actually West and this can be explained by Plato’s map as it is upside down to an educated mind, Plato’s knowledge was also said to come from the Atlante-ans passed down from ear to ear. Hermetic teachings and the Emerald Tablets of Thoth who are one in the same, Hermes is Thoth. The Greek word is attested from the 5th century BC as a direct loan from Old Persian maguš. The Persian word is a u-stem adjective from an Indo-Iranian root, magh, “powerful, rich” also continued in Sanskrit as magha “gift, wealth”, magha-vant “generous” (a name of Indra). Avestan has maga, magauuan, probably with the meanings “sacrifice” and “sacrificer”. The Indo-European root appears to have expressed power or ability, in Greek its mekhos and in Germanic its magan English it’s may, magts agian (English might, the expression “might and magic” thus being a figura etymologica) Please watch the video for more information on the Medi magicians from Mesoptamia at mythology explored by ancient mystery on youtube.
