Vowel-sequences in archaic manuscripts

Vowel-sequences in Magical Papyri

Vowels must have been the mayor symbolic elements in archaic society, language, and religion. Vowel-sequences have been found in a great number of divine names (such as Iu, Iao, Iah, Iau, Ieou, Iaou, Iho, Iaouh, Eewu, Ao, Au, Iee, Ia, Ie, Jupiter and Jove 1 ), ego-pronouns (such as ieu, iòu më, jou, jau, eau) and days of the week (e.g. jeudi, jueves, Jovdio, joi, dydd Iau, dijous). These elements have been documented in The Key Morpheme - analyzing the PIE-concep.

Vowels must have been the archaic fundamentals for religious symbolism 2 . This manuscript documents the typical vowel-sequences in various ancient papyri. The symbolism in this vowel- sequences correlates to the previously found applications in ego-pronouns 3 and days of the week.

Cyclical Shifts

In the explanations 10 Diederich refers to the theater at Milete, in which the acclamation of the seven planets is calling the seven-vowel sequences in such manner that each acclamation starts with a next vowel in the proper sequence of the row. The first name is αεηιουω, the

second name is εηιουωα, etc

This description allowed me to generate the other names, in total seven, which will be transcribed in an improved vowel symbolism (this explanation is missing):

:

8.

αεηιουω

→ AEÆIOUΩ

(instead of AEEIOYO)

9.

εηιουωα

→ EÆIOUΩA (instead of EEIOYOA)

10.ηιουωαε

→ ÆIOUΩAE (instead of EIOYOAE)

11.ιουωαεη

→ IOUΩAEÆ (instead of IOYOAEE)

12.ουωαεηι

→ OUΩAEÆI (instead of OYOAEEI)

13.υωαεηιο

→ UΩAEÆIO (instead of YOAEEIO)

14.ωαεηιου → ΩAEÆIOY (instead of OAEEIOY) From here the cycle returns to number 1.

1. αεηιουω → AEÆIOUΩ (instead of AEEIOYO)

…. and so on

Indeed I found some evidence in the web, specifying 11 :

1. ΑΕΗΙΟΥΩ

2. ΕΗΙΟΥΩΑ

3. ΗΙΟΥΩΑΕ

4. ΙΟΥΩΑΕΗ (→ a most interesting pattern starting with IOU and ending in AEH)

5. ΟΥΩΑΕΗΙ

6. ΥΩΑΕΗΙΟ

7. ΩΑΕΗΙΟΥ

Chanting of the vowels

As to the chanting of the vowels, it is {13} of interest to learn from Demetrius, On Interpretation, c. 71 (p.20 Raderm.), that: "In Egypt the priests hymn the Gods by means of the seven vowels, chanting them in order; instead of the pipe and lute the musical chanting of these letters is heard. So that if you were to take away this accompaniment you would simply remove the whole melody and music of the utterance (logos)."

The third Utterance (Logos)

I do invoke Thy Deathless Names, innate with Life, most worshipful, that have not yet descended unto mortal nature, nor have been made articulate by human tongue, or cry or tone of man:

ëeö · oëeö · iöö · oë · ëeö · ëeö · oëeö · iöö · oëëe · öëe · öoë · ië · ëö · oö · oë · ieö · oë · öoë · ieöoë · ieeö · eë · iö · oë · ioë · öëö · eoë · oeö · öië · öiëeö · oi · iii · ëoë · öuë · ëö · oëe · eöëia · aëaeëa · ëeeë · eeë · eeë · ieö · ëeö · oëeeoë · ëeö · euö · oë · eiö · ëö · öë · öë · öë · ee · ooouiöë!

These deathless names correspond to the immortal names in the previously documented Mithras Liturgy.

The divine names IOA, IAEO, AEEIOYW and the reversed form WYOIEEA are vowel- sequences.

From PGM III, 1-164; lines 71-85:

“I conjure you, the powerful and mighty angel of this animal in this place; rouse yourself for me, and perform the NN [deed] both on this very day and in every hour and day; rouse yourself for me against my enemies, NN, and perform NN deed” (add the usual), “for I conjure you by IAO SABAOTH ADONAI ABRASAX, and by the great god, IAEO” (formula), “AEEIOYW WYOIEEA CHABRAX PHNESKER PHIKO PHNYRO PHWCHW BWCH / ABLANATHANALBA ARRAMMACHAMARI SESENGENBARPHARANGES MITHRA NAMAZAR ANAMARIA DAMNAMENEU CHEU CHTHO[NIE] THORTOEI, holy king, the Sailor, [who steers] the tiller of the lord god, rouse [yourself] for me, great cat-faced one, steerer of the tiller [of God], perform the NN deed (add the usual), from this very day, immediately, immediately; quickly, quickly. …
