Ate = Anna

[Hellenic] /ATa/ ‘Delusion’ is etymologically cognate with [Latin] /Anna/ < */ATna/ ‘Year’.

Hellenic & Latin


Ate is "A goddess whose feet rested on the heads of mortals" (CDCM, s.v "Ate").

From the toe (of Vis.n.u, who in the guise of goddess Mohini beheaded Rahu), poised over the head of S`iva, gusheth

/Minerva/ < earlier /MeNeSOVA/.

the stream filling lake MaNaSa-rOVAr.

"Mars chose Anna as an intermediary between himself and Minerva ... . Anna ... put herself in Minerva’s place at a night-meeting. When Mars was shown into the bridal chamber she lifted her veil; Mars recognized her" (CDCM, s.v "Anna Perenna")

Le>ah was put in the place of Rah.el in the bridal chamber; Ya<qob recognized her afterwards.

Anna had been routed out of Carthago by JaRBas (CDCM, s.v "Iarbas")

Yo^Re^B ‘indicated something hidden in a parable’ (LA-L, vol. 4, p. 453b). YaRiB was a brother of Yes^uwa< (<ezra> 10:18), thus indicating the parables of Iesous Khristos.

after she had succeeded Didoi as queen thereof.

Another brother of Yes^uwa< (loc. cit.) was Ma<s`eyah ‘Work’ (indicating that "Faith without works is a dead faith.") [These were sons of Yo^-s.adaq, ‘Righteous’, whence "Iesous Khristos the Righteous" (1st Epistle of Ioannes 2:1).]

Another "YaRiB" was son of S^im<o^n (1st Dibre^ ha-Yami^m 4:24); a brother of that Yarib was "Nmu^>el", a name otherwise written (in B-Re>s^it 40:10 and in S^emo^t 46:10) as /YMU^>EL/, evidently the source of the name /IMManoUEL/ of him who was blessed, as a babe, by another Simeon (Euangelion of Loukas 2:34); the epithet "Niger" (Acts of the Apostles 13:1) of yet Simeon would suggest, through the "niggertoe" brazil-nut, a connection with the toe of Vis.n.u.
