"The Great River rises from the northeast corner ..., and runs its course to the northwest of it, and then it takes a southwesterly course to enter the Gulf Sea. It rises once again from beyond the sea and this is where it takes a westerly course, then runs northwards" (CM&S, p. 140 11:11).

To the northeast of the site of the Judgement, the Beleny river floweth toward the northwest, entring the Volga, which taketh a southwesterly course to Saratov.

In CBM (p. 34), there is depicted, as temple-god, a red-haired sun-feline protruding the tongue : to denote the "inept" (GM @18.f) remark made by Ankhises. The other red-haired god (depicted on the same page of CBM) may be his son Lurnos.

In CBM (p. 35), there are depicted regions of fog edged with star-eyen.

{"A torrential rain causes the sun to collapse and the heavens to fall, and a flood turns the macehuales into fish." ("SA/NC--HMP")} {""Make a very big hole in a cypress tree and put us in it when ... the sky falls." ... When the cypress trunk had stopped rocking, Tata and Nene emerged ... . ...

In CBM (p. 38), Tata is depicted as a skeletal god horizontally fastened to a tree growing in a swamp :

"tries to kill ... on the death-bringing settee, which is set with squid bones {i.e., with cuttlefishes' cuttle}" (TsM, p. 673). [N.B. : squids swim with their heads to their rear, as if fastened to their buttocks.]

"the collar-bone ... he hides behind his ear." (TsM, p. 673)

By means of allowing his cattle to be taken, Sisuphos attained to the privilege of visiting the stable of Auto-lukos, and thus of begetting Odusseus (GM @67.c). The name \Sisuphos\ hath as its etymon *\TIKSUbho-\. The meaning of \Odusseus\ is (GM @160.c) "The Angry One", similar, in effect, to \\ "a harsh speech".

{"Us`inara attained heaven by giving cows as gifts." (MBh, "Anus`asana Parvan" 76:25 -- PE, s.v. "Us`inara I.4)(iv)") The son of Us`inara is named (PE, q.v. : Agni 277) \tiTIKS.U\, who begat Rus.adratha (\\ + \ratha\), who is otherwise known as (M-W:SD) "Us.adratha" (\\ + \ratha\).}

In CBM (p. 38), the rainbow-serpent (rainbow being, in shape, alike unto the Latin alphabet-letter "C") may be aequivalent to the double sigma (because sigma came to be written, in manuscripts, with a sign resembling Latin "C") "engraved" by (GM @67.c) Sisuphos; and the serpent's crenellated ring may be a rotatory inscription-cutting tool.

Sisuphos "entered by the portal" (possibly implying his utilizing a skeleton-key to so accomplish) and "seduced [Auto-lukos]'s daughter [Anti-kleia {\antikleid-\ "false key"}] ... . She bore him Odusseus" (GM @67.c).

{The sky was smoked ... in the year 1-Rabbit." (MMGu, p. 92)}

\Maistra\ is related to *\Maisa\ > \Maia\ "good mother, form of address to old women".

{"All the gods applaud her [i.e., Mami = Nin-tud] and give her the epithet Belit-ili, 'mother of the gods'." (HCM--H&OT)}
