The Lydians
« on: August 26, 2007, 10:01:17 PM »

Here is a list of Kings of Lydia. The later Tylonids (Heraclidae) and Mermnads are included. The pre-Tilonid line may well be one and the same with the rulers of Arzawa imho.

Tilonid(Heraclid)
Ardys 1(Ardysus)795-759
Alyattes 1(from Lydian "walwa", meaning "lion")759-745
Meles(Myrsus)745-733
Candaules(Myrsilus [=Mursilis?], Sadyates?)733-716
Mermnad
Gyges(son of Dascylus)716-678
Ardys 2(Ardysus)678-629
Sadyattes629-617
Alyattes 2617-560
CroesusPersian "Qarun"560-546

Again, long reigns. May need to be brought down in order to accord with NC.

Where do I put these lines? Greece or Anatolia?

Sorry - I missed your comment. I'd leave them under Anatolia as that's where Lydia was located (albeit under heavy Greek - especially Ionian - influence from an early date). The Lydian language was also an "Anatolian" tongue, though interestinglym I believe closer to Hittite than Luwian, as one might expect.

Also interesting (though how relevant I'm not sure) is that Alyattes is believed to be cognate with Goliath. I believe the forms "Alwt" and "Lwt" have been discovered inscribed on potsherds in a Philistine context.

Anyway, apologies for the diversion, but Lydia should remain under Anatolia. Smiley
