Acropolis of Athens during the Mycenaean period (1500-1300 BCE). The Mycenaean palace wall, also known as Pelasgiko (or Pelargiko), is currently visible near the Propylaea. The wall constituted the main means of defense until the end of the archaic period. The citadel had two entrances: north and west. The west, where today stands the Propylaea, had nine gates, the so-called "enneapylon", which, as reported by Thucydides, existed until the entrance of the Persians in Athens in 480 BCE.

We present our Ten Commandments in a Proto Hebraic called Ktav Ivri, as a likely possibility. The Hebrew language developed over a period of time and arguably began as Canaanite pictograms; later influences of Phoenician were absorbed. One of the developing aleph bet’s used in the Sinai, circa 1300 BCE, and one Moses, educated as an Egyptian, would be familiar with, called Ktav Ivri, has been back translated from the Koine Greek we see used in the Septuagint at the time of Christ. The original has not been seen since it, the Ark of the Covenant, Aaron’s rod and a container preserving a sample of the Manna were hidden by the holy prophet Jeremiah somewhere on Mt Sinai. Jeremiah told his cadre that the Ark and its contents would remain hidden until The Lord chose to reveal them at some time in the distant future. See Second Maccabees 2: 4-7.
