Ancient Greeks in America? The Riddle of Anasazi

Structures of Anasazi Structures of Anasazi

The word ‘ANASAZI’ (whose name is a Navajo), means “THOSE ANCIENT ONES”, in the language of Hopi. Nowadays Hopi are the inhabitants of the ‘Anasazi’ areas who differ nationally and culturally a lot from their Indian neighbours.

The Anasazi built acropoles and fortresses very much alike to those of Mycenae, constructed roads, amphitheatres and irrigational works. They conducted solar observations and constructed clay pots and pottery similar to those of the Greek geometric period. The symbols and the designs of Anasazi which are carved on stones, their ceramic designs and especially their myths which were salvaged by Hopi, offer light to things which for the ‘specialists’ remain ‘unsolved mysteries’. The French writer Pierre Honorre notes that ‘the Maya writing is entirely identical with the Minoan Linear A’. A jar originating from Crete that was discovered in Bimini creates an unexpected so called ‘riddle’

Copper made double sided axes from Crete were found in Washighton and Ohio of the U.S.A.(What can all these mean? ). Returning to the Anasazi, we meet the familiar Greek symbols (spiral wavy circle, ophidian meander, medusa etc), which are located everywhere in ?spe??a (Esperia=the land that is situated where the sun sets). Concluding we should add that we meet many similarities in the myths of Hopi with the ancient Greek ones.

The Mayan scripture is literally the ancient Greek Cretan scripture, Linear A, that arrived there from this Greek island. The presence of Hellenism is visible in Maya. The art of painting, sculpture, textiles process, all of them Hellenic and in specific Minoan and Mycenaean.

The temples with the monolithic pillars, weighting 25 tones, were not build of course in the jungle by inhabitant farmers, because they demanded architects, geometrical knowledge and definitely high technology. They moreover constructed observatories and stadiums alike the Greek ones. The Greek Minoans governed Maya.

Let us note that from all the Precolombian people only the Mayans «created» a scripture system and their language differs entirely from the rest ones of Central America and Mexico. We also meet many words of the ancient Greek Cretan dialect in the extremely ancient Indian one.

Noteworthy is i.e. the Cretan type of the referring pronoun 'ostis', written 'otini' in the dative case, with ending found in the ancient indian,-kasmin.

Many words of the ancient Incas are similar to the ancient Greek since they have Minoan origin.

So many Greek words are found in the majority of languages. If neighbouring countries use common words it is due to the influences from one to another from the fact of living so close, But how could this happen if so far away? A lot of researchers claim that the Ancient Greeks had spread around the globe leaving Greek artifacts & culture


Drawing that presents Ulysses’ wandering after the fall of Troy based on confirmations of HENRIETTE MERTZ (who studied piece by piece the Homer’s text in combination with several latest discoveries and observations that are mentioned by Homer himself i.e. journey duration etc).

The journey of Odussey to America

According to Mrs. MERTZ research, Ulysses, after wandering in the Atlantic ocean, arrived to America. [After all, it’s rather difficult to believe that such a clever king like Ulysses, adept at navigation, was wandering for 10 years inside the Mediterranean, area already known to Greeks from utmost ancient times]. In the map are also noted details such as the area were the Sirens were situated, in which spot of the American continent Scylla and Charybdes were found and through which way Ulysses returned to Ithaca assisted throughout the whole rout by the Gulf Stream.

Dr. Enrico Mattievich, a retired Professor of Physics from the UFRJ, Brazil, suggested in 2011 that Odysseus’s journey to the Underworld took actually place in South America. The river Acheron was the Amazon, after a long voyage upstream Odysseus met the spirits of the dead at the confluence of the Rio Santiago and Rio Marañon.

Odysseus’s journey to the Underworld took actually place in South America?

Book: Journey to the Mythological Inferno, by Professor Enrico Mattievich

In his book, Journey to the Mythological Inferno, which is a historical non-Fiction winners’ book, Mattievich exposes his thesis on ancient contacts between the Old World and America, based on Greek and Roman classical texts, leading to new ideas about America that many historians and geographers have been reluctant to consider until now.

Some time ago, the writer and archaeologist Henriette Mertz suggested that the legendary voyage of Odysseus and his ship’s crew, after the Trojan War – narrated in Homer’s Odyssey – would be a trip across the Atlantic, from the Gibraltar Straits to North America. She also suggested that the Argonauts could have navigated down to the South Atlantic Ocean, passed the mouth of the Amazon River to Rio de la Plata, and, following it upstream, reached Bolivian Altiplano and Thiaguanaco. Dr. Christine Pellech also suggested that Odyssey’s voyage to the Kingdom of the Dead was a real trip to America.

The thesis presented in the Journey to the Mythological Inferno claims that Greek and Roman myths related to the Underworld, the House of Hades, the Kingdom of the Dead or the Inferno, originated in South America, specifically in the Andean region of Peru, where the ruins of the Palace of Hades and Persephone, mentioned in Hesiod’s Theogony – written around 700 B.C. – still stand, known as Chavín de Huántar. This theory took form after Mattievich’s first visit to the archaeological site of Chavín de Huántar, in 1981.

In his book, Mattievich presents classical literature texts, such as Ovid’s Metamorphosis, that relate to the knowledge of America. The Cadmus myth, written by Ovid, for example, is estimated to be a myth immortalizing the heroic feat of the discovery and conquest of the Amazon River by the Phoenicians. The prehistoric presence of Phoenician navigators along the coast and rivers of Brazil, could be confirmed by hundreds of engraved inscriptions on rocks– called itacoatiaras – by natives of Brazil, where it’s often possible to recognize archaic Semitic and proto-Greek characters. The same name Brazil, according to Professor Cyrus Gordon, comes from the vocable brzl, used by Canaanites to denote iron.
