Purport To Chronicle The Arrival Of Roman Jews There In 775 A.D.

[New York Times, December 13, 1925]


-+- Fought the Toltec Indians -+-

"The story commences in A.D. 775 with three people being carried forth over the sea to Roman Calalus, an unknown land. Here they found a people whom they called the Toltexus, the scientists agreeing that the people they found were the Toltec Indians. At this period Theodorus was the ruler of these European adventurers and was a brave fighter and a man of courage. He carried on much warfare with the Toltecs and after ruling for a period of fourteen years he was succeeded by Jacobus."

"Jacobus ruled the people with a mighty hand and was also a constructive ruler, since he rebuilt the city of these people that had been razed during the latter part of the reign of Theodorus. Jacobus was not king long and was followed by Israel the First, who reigned for sixty-seven years, who, in turn, was followed by Israel the Second. He ruled six years. Thus the story continues on until the year 900 and is chronologically complete through the entire period of their existence in America."

"The records found by Mr. Manier and Mr. Bent appear to be a last record of the people, written in haste at the time when the end was approaching. The record does not make clear just what the end was, but it has been concluded that these Europeans were exterminated by the natives, who, it appears, harassed them and made war upon them from the beginning to the end. This conclusion has been drawn, since what appears to be the last writing of the recorder of these ancient deeds states:"

"'The last days have come and the inevitable doom,' and his last writing is, 'I am present. The Lord be with you.'"

"To this chapter of the story is signed 'O.L.' as well as to all of the other parts or crosses, the 'O.L.' being not his initials, but rather an insignia of rank."

-+- Evidence of Authenticity -+-

"The investigation and excavating is only in the embryo stage, and is to be carried on to completion in the future; however, much definite information has been brought to light that establishes these relics as being several hundred years pre- Columbian."

"C.J. Sarle, Ph.D., one of the eminent geologists of the Southwest, who has spent much time during the last year in investigating this find, is of the belief that the articles are not only genuine but are as old as the dates would indicate. He has established this belief through the geological facts and through the location at their respective depths of the numerous Indian cultures, the oldest being that of the Hohokums, or the great unknown tribe of Indians that inhabited the Southwest in prehistoric times. The veneer of the Hohokum culture is a considerable distance above the level at which these relics are being excavated."

"Dean Byron Cummings, Curator of the State Museum, archaeologist, and a member of the Faculty of the University of Arizona, who has also investigated this problem, is convinced as to the antiquity of the finds and as to the articles being genuine. He establishes the age of the relics through the Roman script contained upon them, which he states has not been in common use since the eighth century, and through archaeological and geological evidence. In this he is supported by Professor Frank H. Fowler(?) who has translated all of the Latin inscriptions on the pieces found to date."

"Professor Charles T. Vorhies(?), entomologist, who has also interested himself in this investigation and has assisted with the photographic record, is firm in his belief that these relics are not of historic times, are many hundreds years old, that there has been no burial of them, and there is no evidence of burial, but that the articles have been covered over to a depth of between five and six feet by a natural building-up process, over a long period of time."

"Dean A.E. Douglass of the Steward Observatory and Vice President of the Historical and Archaeological Society of Arizona is firm in the belief of the antiquity and the genuineness of the finds. He has spent much time on the investigation, has taken a complete photographic record and has himself excavated part of the relics."

-+- Dr. Judd Aids in Excavation -+-

"Dr. Neil Judd of the Smithsonian Institution visited the excavation and completely excavated two of the articles himself. He stated that the articles were very old and that there was absolutely no evidence of disturbance of the earth surrounding them. He reached this conclusion after chopping these two pieces loose with a miner's pick."

"All of these men have either excavated some of the finds themselves or have been present when relics were excavated."

"The time at which the story of these crusaders relates their history definitely establishes the period during which they inhabited America, and is supported by the eighth century Latin script that is used in the inscriptions."

"The place from which they came has been established by Laura Coleman Ostrander as the Roman Empire, since they call the unknown land Roman Calalus. They were designated by her as Roman Jews because of the appearance of the Hebrew script of the early centuries upon the religious standards, and because of the nature and significance of drawings and symbols appearing upon them; also because of the fact that the traders of the Roman Empire during the first Christian centuries were the Jews."

"The excavation and investigation has been carried on by Messrs. Charles E. Manier and Thomas W. Bent, with the assistance of John S. Bent and the support of the University of Arizona, the Tucson Chamber of Commerce and the City of Tucson. All of the photography for publication is being done by the Irwin Studios of Tucson, Ariz."

"This is an announcement and should not be taken as a conclusion, since future excavation will no doubt bring to light much more evidence of startling and interesting nature, and as the new evidence is brought to light a report of progress will be made."

-+- Translation of Inscriptions -+-

The inscription of a cross designated as 1.A is translated as follows:

A.D. 900(?), Jan. 1 We are carried forth over the sea to Calalus, an unknown land, to a people ruling widely The Toltesus, Silvanus were lead over Theodorus brings up his forces at the City Rhoda and more than seven hundred are captured No gold shall be taken from the city Theodorus, a man of great courage, rules fourteen years James rules six years
With God's help nothing need be feared In the name of Israel


-+- Death of Israel in "the War." -+-

The chronology of the supposed dynasties of Calalus is translated as follows from another Latin inscription:

From the Beginning. A.D. 790 to 900. Nothing but by the cross, by suffering. Israel died in the war.
Pray for the soul of Israel.
May God be with us as with our fathers. May the earth be light unto thee.
Israel, defender of the faith, adds honor to ancestral honor. Israel reigns 67 years.
Israel II reigns 6 years.
Israel II started to reign when 26 years old. A war of extermination.
Either to conquer or to die.
He flourished in his ancestral honor from day to day. Prepare for either event but hope is not yet crushed. By the grace of God.
Time having elapsed, from adversity comes the source and origin of our miseries, the last day comes and the inevitable time. I am present.
The Lord be with you.

-+- Chronicle is Specific -+-

Another of the texts is translated as follows:

Benjamin was king of the people. They came from Seine to Rome. The bravest of the Gauls. He came to the assistance of the people to lay the foundation of the city. He built a wall around the city to resist the enemy. Benjamin mighty in strength he filled the multitude with religion. He was slain by the Thebans. I heard this from my father five hundred years after, behind the mountain. In memory of his father.

860 A.D. Israel the 3rd was banished since he had liberated the Toltesus. He first broke the custom. The earth trembled. Fear overwhelmed the hearts of mortals in the third year after he fled.

They betook themselves within the city and kept themselves within their walls. You shall not bury or burn a dead man in the city.

Before the city extended a plain, hills encompassed the city. It is a hundred years since Jacobus was king. Jacobus was busy in the front line. He attended to everything, fought much in person and often struck down the enemy. Israel gave his attention to the appointment of priests. Life is to us a people of extensive sway.

An unknown land A.D. 895. May I be able to accomplish my endeavors to serve the king. It is uncertain how long life will continue. There are many things which may be said. While the war was raging three thousand men were slain, the leaders with their chiefs were taken, nothing but peace was sought. God ordains all things.

A brief inscription which bears no signature refers briefly to the transatlantic voyage of the Dark Age Arizonians as follows:

We are carried over the sea to Roman Calalus, an unknown land. They came in the year 775. Theodorus ruled the people.
