The wide world, from the Adriatic to the Caucasus and Syria, was conscious of what would be gained or lost in the Trojan war. It was the final stage of the centuries-long conflict between the ancient peoples of millennial civilizations, the Ligurians, Celts, Pelasgians, Illyrians, and Thracians, and the young and dynamic invading Indo-European peoples. Troy maintained the common culture of the pre-Hellenic world and was the symbol of this world. Troy became the spiritual, cultural and artistic center of the old world. It was about saving this last bastion of ancient humanity that was sinking.

In fact, Hades was the homeland of the ancient Greeks. For this reason, they believed that the soul of every Greek who died went to their ancestral homeland.
The Greeks people are originated from the middle Caucasus, and Greek mythology belongs to the eastern Caucasus, because Caron, the boatman, who transferred the souls of the dead to Hades, crossing the Terek river, which emptied into the Caspian Sea, and took the souls to their homeland, the central Caucasus.
The Greeks, who worshipped Zeus, lost the wars they fought against the neighbouring tribes that worshipped the Titans and they were exiled from the Caucasus. The ancient Greeks, who settled in Crete and Hellas, maintained the cult of Zeus until today. The Circassians, the autochthonous people of the Caucasus, jealously preserved the myths of the Titans in their mythology. This book compares the narratives of the gods of Mount Olympus with the gods of Mount Harama Ouasha, the home of the Titans, as called by the Circassian people. In this book, in which Circassian Mythology of Narts is compared with Greek Mythology, you will witness the parallelization between the Mediterranean Greek with the Caucasian Circassian civilizations and the mythical origins of these two worlds. This book will make you revisit many of the stories you thought you knew about Greek mythology. This book is the first (leg) of the book series of the author written on Circassian Nart Mythology.
From the beginning, the corpses of the Egyptian pharaohs were mummified, but they were buried not in Egypt, but in their homeland, the Caucasus. In time, hostile tribes came between their homeland and Egypt, which was ruled by the pharaohs. So, the Egyptians began to bury their pharaohs in Egypt. In fact, Egypt's Book of the Dead is not a book of pious prayers describing a metaphysical paradise, but a topographic map depicting the entire Caucasus, from Taman to Baku, with its mountains, valleys, cities, and peoples living on it, as well as the gods who are considered to reign in those regions.
The Egyptians called their homeland Duat. The area between the sunrise mountain of Bakha and the sunset mountain of Manu was called Duat by the ancient Egyptians. About 100 gods living in Duat were called Neter by the ancient Egyptians. Many of the Neters were responsible for protecting the sun god Ra. There was a river flowing parallel to the sunrise mountain Bakha and the sunset mountain Manu mountain range. The only place in the world that fits this description is the Caucasus. The easternmost tip of the Caucasus mountain range is Bakha, or Baku, while the westernmost tip is Manu, or Taman. Because of their geographical location, the Caucasus Mountains are sacred mountains for all ancient civilizations that worshipped the cult of the sun.
The Circassians, the autochthonous people of the Caucasus, called the characters in their mythology as Narts. The ancient Egyptians called the characters Neteru, which were called Nart by the Circassians, but interestingly the name Nart was also mentioned in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. In other words, both the Circassian Mythology of Narts and the Neter Mythology of the Egyptians are actually narratives that have survived from the Books of the Dead recorded in Egypt. In this book you will see a comparative reading of the Nart Mythology of the Circassians and the Neter mythology of the ancient Egyptians. This book will make you reconsider many things you know about ancient Egypt.
I have been working on Circassian Mythology of Narts for a long time. As a result of these studies, which started about fifteen years ago, some questions arose in my mind about the Circassian Mythology of Narts. One of them is how many themes in the Circassian Mythology of Narts are universal and have not been noticed until today. However, it is very clear that many themes in the Circassian Mythology of Narts are universal. At least most of them are certainly not regional. Undoubtedly, the themes related to Nart Wezırmes are at the forefront of such universal ones. I am amazed that it has not been noticed until today that the narratives of the character Rama in the Indian epic Ramayana and the hero named Nart Wezırmes in the Circassian Mythology of Narts are actually texts based on the same story.
In the same way, the thematic similarities between Nart Wezırmes and Egyptian Osiris have not been noticed until now, which intrigues me. I dealt with this subject in my book, titled The Ancient Secret of Circassian and Egyptian Mythologies, From Narts to Neters.
