Not my work. All NC …. with some of my edits (!)
Very informative :o)
The “ancient” Roman emperor Trajan ruled, as it is today supposed, in the years 98-117 AD,
As we will show in further publications, in fact, the era of Emperor Trajan is the 13th century Trojan War, that is, the Crusades of Russia-Horde, which avenged the execution of Andronicus in Tsar Grad. As can be seen from Fig.1.21 and Fig.1.22 , the Scaligerian historians mistakenly put Trajan in front of Adrian, the “two” Elias Vera and Commodus, which are reflections of Andronicus.
But now we are interested in something else. Let us turn to the famous monumental building to the honour of Trajan, which stands today in Italian Rome. This is the column of Trajan.
It is believed that it was built in the II century and depicts the events of the two wars of Trajan and Dacians. As we now understand, such dating is erroneous. Since, according to our reconstruction, episodes of the famous Trojan War of the XIII century, that is, the Crusades (or rather two Campaigns) are shown here, therefore the column was erected not earlier than the middle of the XIII century, and most likely, much later. Arguments in favour of this thought will be given below.
Trajan’s column from top to bottom is covered with embossed images. Viewing and photographing them from the bottom is bad, so we took advantage of the detailed photos published in the fundamental German work of the 19th century [1069: 1] under the name “Trajan’s Column”. In addition, we used full drawings and photographs of some of the images that appeared relatively recently on the Internet [1463: -1].
So, we studied several hundred professional photographs of images on the column of Trajan, made in the XIX and XX centuries. Interesting facts came to light. Here are some of them.
1) It is strange that on the column itself there is no single record, not a single name, not a single name is mentioned. The only inscription is only on the base, fig.8.15 .
By the way, it is interesting to compare the state of the basement in the XIX century with its appearance in our time,
It can be seen that in the 20th century the base was noticeably restored. The fact that there are no inscriptions on the column itself turns the tape of images spiraling around the column from the bottom to the top in a long series of “war pictures”. Battles, truces, religious rituals, fires, taking cities, chains of prisoners, etc. In particular, the statement of historians that some figures depict Emperor Trajan himself is only a hypothesis, not supported by any concrete arguments. We repeat that there are no inscriptions.
2) Most likely, the column and some bas-reliefs on it are cast from concrete “ marbled. ”
One can see areas where the “skin is peeling off”, that is, the upper thin layer of the more expensive concrete pavement laid on the rough concrete base falls off,
It is possible that some images were made on the not quite frozen surface of the column (or panels). Perhaps the technique was mixed: concrete castings intertwined with fragments of natural marble with carvings. The column of Trajan could have been made in the epoch of the Reformation, but at the same time they probably relied on some old images.
3) Apparently, the bas-reliefs of the column of Trajan really followed some old tradition. This is indicated by the following vivid fact: on many shields of “ancient” Roman soldiers, Ottoman = Ataman crescents, stars and Christian crosses are visible.
In the Scaligerian version, the appearance of such symbols on the “ancient, pagan” weapons of soldiers is absolutely impossible. But in our reconstruction it should be like this. Here are just a few of the numerous examples: in Fig. 8.22, the crescent moon is visible at the top of the shield. In fig.8.23 two crescents are depicted on the shield in the center and the shield on the right.
In addition, the stars are depicted on another right panel. In the center of Fig. 8.24, we see four shields at once, on which are shown crescents with stars. On the shield on the right are Christian crosses.
Apparently, crescents with stars and Christian crosses on Trajan’s column attracted the attention of modern historians. And they strongly “strained them,” because they pointed out contradictions within the Scaligerian version. The way out was this: stubbornly (very stubbornly) to keep silent about this fact. In any case, in the literature we know about the column of Trajan on this topic, there is a complete silence.
4) It is also curious that over the past hundred years, the column of Trajan has been severely damaged. A comparison of 19th century photographs with 20th century photographs clearly shows that the images have noticeably collapsed. There appeared a lot of vyšcherbin, caverns, (Pitted?) as well as cracks, which are not in the old photographs given in [1069: 1]. This remark is consistent with our statement that the column of Trajan is not so ancient as we are trying to convince us today. She is probably not at all about 1800 years old, and not more than five hundred years old. The rate of destruction seems to be more or less constant.
CONCLUSION. The famous column of Trajan was made in the epoch of the XVI-XVII centuries on the motives of some old, not extant images. It is dedicated, most likely, to the famous Trojan War of the XIII century, that is, the Crusade campaigns on Tsar Grad and the victory of Russia-Horde with allies.
