Homer and Orosius: A Key to Explain Deucalion's Flood, Exodus and Other Tales

Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS, volume 6)

In a previous paper (Spedicato, 2005), taking the hint from a passage in Paulus Orosius, we have explained Deucalion's Flood and the “passage” of the Red Sea by Moses in terms of a super Tunguska type explosion over northern Germany of a body known in the Greek tradition as Phaethon. In this paper, we observe how an enigmatic passage in Homer's Odyssey about Lampos and Phaethon sheds additional light on the above events.
