It is said that some men entered the pyramids with a young boy to use him for sex. They saw [the spirit of] a black slave armed with a cane coming at them, and he began to give them terrible blows. They fled immediately, leaving behind their food, their drinks, and some of their clothes. The same thing happened, it is said, to other men in the temple at Akhmim.
A man and a woman entered the pyramid to have sex with each other; they were thrown to the ground and seized with a furious delirium that lasted until their death.
More interesting is another medieval text I came across yesterday, the Chronography of Gregory Bar Hebraeus, a Syrian Orthodox bishop who wrote a Syriac history of the world from the dawn of time to the year of his death, 1286. It is not particularly interesting on its own merits when it comes to the Watchers myth, for it identifies the sons of God with progeny of Seth, who were hornier than their father preferred, leading them to look for better sex outside their mountain home: “And because of this they (i.e. the men from HERMON) went to the children of CAIN, and took wives, and begat mighty men of names, that is to say, men notorious for murders and robberies” (trans. E. A. Wallis-Budge). Here, Bar Hebraeus has even eliminated the giants, euhemerizing them as merely notorious criminals. (The full passage is on my Watchers page.)
No, what is interesting is how Bar Hebraeaus folded the Babylonian history of Berossus and the Watchers myth of 1 Enoch into his antediluvian history. I’ll quote the relevant lines in full:
Moreover, they [the sons of Cain] set up over them the first king, a man whose name was SAMYAZOS, and when they began to quarrel with their brethren the children of SETH, they forced them also to set up a king over them, and they set up a king.
The first was a man whose name was 'ALOROS.
And the second was 'ALPAROS.
And the third was 'ALMILON.
And the fourth was 'AMMANON.
And the fifth was MIGHALAROS.
And the sixth was 'AONOS, the shepherd.
And the seventh was 'AODHORANBOS.
And the eighth was 'AMPESIS.
And the ninth was 'AOTYARTIS,
And the tenth was KSISOTHROS (or KSISORTHOS) his son, in whose days the FLOOD took place.
All these were KHALDHAYE, that is to say ANCIENT SYRIANS, according to the tradition of the early writers.
The Sethite kings are still more interesting, for our author has adopted Berossus’ list of the ten antediluvian kings of Babylon wholesale. Berossus gives them thus (Eusebius, Chronicon 3 [quoting Alexander Polyhistor]; Syncellus, Chronicon 39 [quoting Abydenus] and 40 [quoting Apollodorus]):
9. Otiartes (Ardates)
10. Xisuthrus (Sisithros)
It’s rather astonishing to see Bar Hebraeus appropriating Babylonian kings to rule over the Sethites, who of course were also godly Syrians, but doubly so when we see the Fallen Angels as kings of the Cainites!
