♦️The Azd tribe (from Yemen) are Kahlani Qahtanites, one of the two branches of Qahtan, the other being Himyarites (Yemeni Jews). They inhabited Ma'rib & it’s surroundings in modern-day Yemen. Their descendants founded the Arab Christian kingdom of the Ghassanids, around modern-day Jordan & Syria, & spoke Yemeni Arabic as well as Greek.
.
♦️In 473 AD, the Ghassanid chief, Amorkesos, signed a treaty with the Eastern Roman Empire acknowledging his control over Palestine. He became Chalcedonian at this time, converting the Myaphysite tribe by the year 510. They became the leading tribe among the Arab tribes nearby, such as Banu Amela and Banu Judham (K.Q descended too).
.
♦️Due to the destruction of the Marib Dam, an additional 50 000 people emigrated from Yemen to the Ghassanid kingdom between 550 & 575 AD. Syriac letters document the persecution of Arab Christians by Dhu Nawas (Yemenite Jewish king)) and the mass graves where many who did not escape were buried alive.
♦️The southern Arabian city of Najran was also a center of Arab Christianity. The bishop of Najran during the period of persecution, HH Al-Harith, was canonized by the Church & is known as St. Aretas.
.
♦️After settling in the Levant, the Romans found a powerful ally in the Ghassanids who acted as a buffer zone, protecting the Empire against the Persian Sassanids, Arab Lakhmids & Bedouins. The capital was at Jabiyah in southeastern Syria. It extended tribal alliances with other Azdi tribes as far as Medina.
♦️The Ghassanid king al-Harith ibn Jabalah (reigned 529–569) supported the Byzantines against Sassanid Persia and was given in 529 by the emperor Justinian I, the highest imperial honours that was ever bestowed upon a foreign ruler; the status of patrician & vir gloriosus.
.
♦️Few Ghassanids became Muslim following the Islamic Conquest; most Ghassanids remained Christian and merged with Hellenized Christian communities in the Levant.

Everywhere #Democrats gain majority, individual liberty loses to government tyranny, such as mandatory #Vaccines which have NEVER been tested for safety since US Congress required in 1986. Democrats believe the States owns your body, not you, and decides what health decisions you can or cannot make for you and your children. Because the government knows best and never lies about anything 😂💉☠️ 🇺🇸🇦🇺🇦🇹🇧🇪🇨🇦🇨🇿🇩🇰🇫🇮🇫🇷🇩🇪🇬🇷🇭🇺🇮🇹🇮🇪🇳🇱🇳🇿🇳🇴🇵🇹🇵🇱🇷🇺🇪🇸🇸🇪🇨🇭🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 #America #Austria #Australia #Belgium #Canada #CzechRepublic #Denmark #Finland #France #Germany #Greece #Ireland #Israel #Italy #Netherlands #NewZealand #Norway #Portugal #Russia #Spain #Sweden #Switzerland #England #Scotland #Wales

....As one of the oldest known Greek poets, Hesiod is contrasted with Homer as the other creator of early epic. Most scholars agree that Hesiod lived in the period just before or after 700 B.C., and his work lies between that of post-Homeric and pre-academic epic poetry. It is well-known that Homer and Hesiod were closely associated in the minds of the Greeks throughout antiquity and their portraits were exhibited together. Hesiod also enjoyed great popularity in Roman times. Cultured Romans quoted freely from his works and his poems were imitated by #Virgil , #Lucretius , #Ovid , and #Catullus. In his poetry, it is Hesiod himself who tells us his father had given up a life of unprofi table sea-trading and moved from Cyme on the sea-coast of Asia Minor to agriculturally rich Boeotia in central Greece. In his Theogony (Theog., 22-35), Hesiod relates that he heard the #Muses calling upon him to sing of the gods as he tended sheep on Mt. Helicon. The Theogony tells us of the #genealogies and origins of the #gods , and it contains the oldest extant Greek account of the creation of the universe. Works and Days, Hesiod’s other famous #poem , is a unique source for our knowledge of daily life in #Archaic #Greece , and one which provides moral advice and practical instruction on agriculture, sea-faring, and social and religious conduct. It concerns itself with farm work, with the labor of shepherds and peasants, with the animals they cared for, and with the change of seasons. In these two #epicpoems , which have been attributed to him since antiquity, Hesiod appears as a straightforward thinker, who in beautiful but simple language sang of the lives of gods and men. While Works and Days has always been viewed as the most notable of the Hesiodic poems, both poems confi rm the identity of an author with a distinct personality – a surly and #conservativeman of the #countryside , given to refl ection, and one who felt the presence of the gods heavy about him. In similar ways, this masterful marble image of a poet embodies the character of this man, Hesiod, and it remains among the most significant and important ancient portraits known to us.
