    Greece. LIVE THE MYTH. PIRATES AT MESOGEIOS

    Greece. LIVE THE MYTH. PIRATES AT MESOGEIOS

    Well I do not have any spiritual rights,
    I simply Copy paste from links
    and add some comments.

    etymology
    Piracy comes from the Greek word πειραω-πειρω

    πειρα = experience
    πειραομαι = Ι attempt, I attack, I take my chance, I provoke my luck.
    πειρασις Πειραζω = effort to seduce, I act to effect your judgement
    πειρατης = επιχειρηματιας = businessman




    Part 1
    Piracy before archaic times,

    The first piracy is unkown when happened.
    piracy is a strange situation that be considered as bad, as good, as illegal, and as legal (corsair)
    the myth give as older the Jason ΙΑΣΩΝ and his ΑΡΓΟΝΑΥΤΕΣ Argonauts

    the strange is that although a myth, left marks even today
    like the toponym Ιασωνειον cape Jason or Yasun Burnu at Pontus of Turkey among Amisos and Kotyora near the today Caytepe

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argonauts

    that act is Hymned by Apollonios of Rhodes and mentioned even at Ορφικα.



    MINOANS AND SEA PEOPLES

    At very early historical times we have a still not well defined balance and situation
    among naval forces of the time,
    It seems like Minoans were the kings of mediterennean sea
    and also were the 'police' in the naval forces of the area and era,
    about Minoans and generally Cretans the discuss on the forum is rich in data.


    On the the other side the most tremendous pirates (maybe of all time)
    are considered the Sea peoples.
    about sea peoples many have been told in this forum

    http://www.eupedia.com/forum/threads...ht=Sea+peoples


    Thyrrenians (or Pelasgians?)


    well about Pelasgians and Thyrrenians and Etruscans
    the talk is very hot, since we do not have a clear view
    and the new searches and archaiological found, give always a new view and theory,
    From Italy to Greece or minor Asia to Greece to Italy?
    the Lemnean stele certified that Thyrrenians existed at both,
    I will stay just to that and what the ancient writers write,
    that Ancient Athens (before Temenides return - Dorians) spoke Thyrrenian
    that they were exiled from Attica (hatti-con)
    they raid back and kidnap women.
    and Miltiades campaign against them.
    generally known as Lemnian bad curse (Λημνια κακα)
    Generally Thyrrenian of Aegean are considered that practice Piracy.


    Phoenicians

    Phoenicians were always tremendous seafaring nation
    Karhedon (Carthage) was Phoenician colony
    Phoenician were great merchants and many times practice piracy
    their ship are mentioned as triaconters biremes pentaconters


    PS
    My personal pirate hero, the one I like is Varvakis Ιωαν Βαρβακης the lord of Caviar.
    but I must admit that Lampros Katsonis Λαμπρος Κατσωνης is by far the bravest soul of Pirates

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    Εχε υπομονη Ηρωα
    Η τιμωρια δεν αργει.
