but Belos, whom they interpret to be Zeus, sundered the darkness in twain, disparted Heaven and earth from each other, and established the world-order; and the animals, not being able to endure the strength of the light, perished. When he saw land unoccupied and fruitful, Belos ordered one of the gods to take off his head, to mix earth with the blood that flowed from it, and to mould men and beasts that could endure the air.' Belos created also the stars and the sun and moon and the five planets." All this, says Alexander Polyhistor, Berossus asserts in his first book.

E. DAMASCIUS ON THE THEOGONY OF THE BABYLONIANS10

Among the Barbarians, it would appear that as far as the Babylonians are concerned they have passed over in silence one of the three first principles of the universel and have made two, Tauthe and Apason, making Apason the husband of Tauthe, and naming her the mother of the gods. Of these a single son was born, Moymis—the visible world itself, I take it, derived from their two first principles. But other issue came from the same parents, Daches and Dachos, and then again a third, Kissare and Assoros. Of these two were born three children, Anos, Illinos, and Aos; and the son of Aos and Dauke was Belos, who they say is the Creator.

10 Damascius, Ed. Kopp, p. 384. It is supposed to have been handed down by Eudemus of Rhodes. The translation and notes are also by Professor Harmon.

11 Damascius is an ardent Neo-Platonist; he finds triads if he can. 12 This may be pure conjecture on the part of Damascius.
