The Octagonal Tower

Which is the most ancient town in Western Europe?   The answer will surprise you.   The oldest town in Europe is Cadiz, Gadir for the phoenicians who founded the town in 1100 BC, 300 years before Chartago.

It appears really weird that a people living in the East of Mediterranean Sea decided to found a town who faces the Atlantic Sea.  Why did the Phoenician founded Cadiz, if Cadiz was really founded by them?

After the discover of America in 1492 Cadiz became a perfect port for commerce with the New World, because his position is perfect for this role.  It was a becoming or a coming back to this role? 

In roman times and before in Cadiz there was a temple, with the two famous pillars of Heracles. Now we say pillars of Heracles in a metaphorical way, but that time they were a real entity.  And we know that Platon said that Atlantis where outside the pillars of Heracles; surely the foundation of Cadiz has a strict connection with Atlantis myth.

But there’s another myth about Cadiz: the Octagonal tower, a mistery tower that you can’t view from the streets of the town, but only from the other towers.   And some legends says one copy of he Hyperuranicon was preserved in this tower.

The Hyperuranicon mentions Gadir as the capital of the Haunebu people, one of the People of the Sea that attacked Egypt during the XIX dinasty.  

The Haunebu, according to the Hyperuranicon, were marvellous sailors who learn thei advanced sailing techniques from the “Ancient Ones” and in particular from a king called Melqart; sign of this strict relation between Haunebu and the Ancient Ones, says the book, is

the Octagonal temple in the center of the town (Chronicles, XII, 16)

It is a coincidence?

It’s a coincidence that Melqart was the phoenician name for Heracles?

And it’s a coincidence that in the most misterious map in the Hyperuranicon one of the points of  connection is exactly in the position of modern and ancient Cadiz?
