The Real Birth of Aphrodite: Multiple Proofs of the Secret Amarna Presence in Greek Mythology, Strong, R.A., And Macklin, Bernard
16 Strong, R.A., And Macklin, Bernard The Real Birth of Aphrodite: Multiple Proofs of the Secret Amarna Presence in Greek Mythology
Melbourne B.M. Minton Publishing 2000 1875467343 / 9781875467341 Second Edition Paperback Very Good Octavo 
595pp. Many black-and-white in-text illustrations. First Published 1997. Covers very slightly rubbed, binding tight, no spine creases. Internally as new. "The Amarna connexion was necessarily covert, demonstrating the presence in Greece in ancient times of an hereditary secret group of some wide extent and influence which operated principally, it would seem, through the mystery cults, the oracles and the bardic system. The evidence presented here touches very clearly and expl;icitly on the early history of today's widely influential covert group complex both in its hereditary (illuminist) and non-hereditary (lodge, front groups, etc, etc) aspects and also to some degree on tactical methods still in very effective use."
