Uranid

Posted by Miri Barak on June 27, 2003

This name is supposed to indicate an ancient culture or myth as appears from the following text:

"The whole perspective, however, has recently changed with the discovery of Hittite texts containing translations of Hurrian myths. These myths parallel the URANID cycle in such striking detail as to preclude any possibility of coincidence."

I could not find any information regarding this Uranid cycle anywhere in English or in Hebrew. If anyone is familiar with ancient cluture and with this in particular, I'll be most grateful for any hint.

Thank you
