the tablets that would change everything... if they weren't "fakes".... or dacian.



In the second half of the nineteenth century an impressive archive composed of over 200 inscriptions on lead plates turned up at the Museum of Antiquities in Bucharest. The inscriptions were made in relief, using the Greek alphabet, written in an unknown language. The texts obviously refer to the Dacian civilization, involving names of some known Dacian kings, toponyms and hydronyms. The plates were considered as fakes, probably due to the unknown provenance and to their brand-new appearance, without any traces of corrosion to indicate that the lead had laid underground for almost 2000 years. An inventory of the pieces was never performed and no research of them has ever been conducted by specialists.

inreresting post.

nut as the linked web page suggests, they are copies.

but i dont understand "the tablets that would change everything' part of it.

What "everything" would have changed if the plates were real?

my observation is based on what i have read on the page linked, which does not give any detailed description of what is on the plates actually!!

as it states there they were found in 1875 probably. this means that the man that created them had some access to a number of things that really he should not have.

on one of them he put down word for word part of the gospel of thomas but with strange names

as it states in the article he knew what the dacian capital looked like 75 years before they found it

he was able to portray a statue that wasn't found until 65 years later

from the Vth millenium bc... these folks made the very first gold adornments too

see him right in the middle?


notice his two ugly sons?


looks like this fellow


or this guy


then there is this guy


he looks like this guy


they might create connections where none previously existed

Not if, as suggested, they were copies.

If that is the case, and the originals were made of gold, my guess would be that they have long since been melted down.

btw I assume from that article that the only evidence we have of the Dacian language comes from names etc?

according to legend the originals were melted down either to build the summer castle of the new foreign king or finance his war of independence against the ottomans.

there are at least 2 writing systems.





here is a lion-eared man, a man with a goose on his head and another with a vulture


here is the funny haired woman from the plate with [osiris] obviously on the warpath


large woman with baby and lamb



other local things you find in egypt later
black topped pottery



and these






like this

gotta brack track: from the same article!

" However, the oral tradition testifies that the lead plates represent copies, made in 1875 by order of King Carol I, of some gold originals. The copying of the hundreds of pieces was accomplished at the nails factory in Sinaia, and the copies were stored first at the Sinaia Monastery and afterwards were transported to Bucharest. Nobody knows what happened to the gold originals.
The detailed analyses of the samples extracted from all the 35 surviving artefacts, performed at the Institute of Nuclear Physics in Bucharest, stated that the composition of the plates is typical for the printing lead from the second half of the nineteenth century
".


ergo... the 'plates' were not burried in the Earth for +2000 years !
