The German Loreley Cliff - Coma Berenices - LexiLine Journal 301

[The decipherment below shows the Loreley from the right side, looking down river on the Rhine. This past year (2009 in September) I was able to make a splendid photograph onsite, which is quite spectactular for its megalithic results. See our update to this file showing the frontal profile at: The German Tale of the Loreley is "Megalithically True".]

To our LexiLine files at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LexiLine/files/Germany/ I have added the file loreley.png [the graphic below]



It is a decipherment of the [right side of the] world famed Loreley (Lorelei) Cliff,

showing that this famous cliff, around which many ancient legends circulate, was carved in the Neolithic Period (Stone Age), having one large head of a woman with long hair (Loreley) carved on it (surely using much of the stone as natural formation) as well as several male heads (who seem to be the fishermen of Loreley legend caught in the stone) and a bird (Corvus, below Coma Berenices).

Coma Berenices was known as the "locks of hair" in ancient days. Eratosthenes called these stars "Ariadne's Hair". Although mainstream historians of astronomy cluelessly scratch their heads about the importance assigned to Coma Berenices in ancient days, Coma Berenices is in fact important because its stars mark the North Galactic Pole - which the ancients clearly recognized.

Legend states that the Loreley is found below "the seven maidens" and indeed, Coma Berenices is composed of seven main stars (see Richard Hinckley Allen, Star Names, p. 1 70, quoting Thompson, who quotes Hygin), although the seven stars could also be those of Ursa Major.

I was able to decipher the Loreley Cliff because of an excellent Associated Press (AP) photo of the Loreley found this weekend in the local newspaper, Trierischer Volksfreund (Nr. 213, September 11/12, 2004), reporting in two articles by Wolfgang Kroener and Rüdiger Polster on two Loreley exhibitions now being held in Koblenz and Bingen, Germany.

The sculpted heads of the Loreley Cliff are clearly seen upon that AP photo.

This identification of the Loreley as Coma Berenices fits in perfectly with the other megalithic German sites identified in my book, Stars, Stones and Scholars.
