According to Justin, “Ninus (Nimrod) subdued all nations as far as Libya.” This would naturally have included Egypt. Diodorus Siculus agrees with this, saying that Ninus subjugated Egypt to himself.
The third person in the trinity of primeval Egypt was Khons (also known as Khonso) and the name Khons in the Egyptian comes from a source meaning “chase”. He was the son of Maut, the goddess mother who is identified with Rhea of the Chaldeans. Khons was therefore god of the chase, or the huntsman.
Similarly in the pantheon of the Roman gods, one finds the name Consus. While he was identified with Neptune, he was also known as the “god of hidden counsels” or the “concealer of secrets”. Consus was said to have discovered the horse and was known as the patron of horsemanship.
Saturn, the god of the mysteries, was known as the “hidden god”, and so was the Egyptian Khons. This brings a deeper connection between the Roman god Consus and the Egyptian Khons – also known as the hidden god. We can assume then that Khons, the god of the chase, must have been connected with with Consus the horseman.
Once again we are compelled to accept that Nimrod, a man of power on the earth and a mighty hunter, was the most likely candidate to have been the first to employ the horse in the chase.
The centaur, half man, half horse commemorated the man who first taught the art of riding. Although the centaur is seen primarily as a Greek idea, it was, in fact borrowed from an earlier source. Centaurs have been found on Babylonian coins – it is also found in the Zodiac under the sign of Sagittarius, the archer, suggesting again that it originated in Babylon and had its source in Nimrod, mighty hunter.
The Greeks themselves indicated that Kronos, or Saturn, father of the gods, was the same as the primitive centaur.
Once again, I am indebted to Alexander Hislop and his book, The Two Babylons, first published in 1916, for his detailed research.
As we explore the subject of the Egyptian gods and their relationship to Nimrod, you will begin to see the answers to my riddles. They have an amazing bearing on the world right now!
