Athena is Minerva, Poseidon is Neptūnus, echoing the Frisian Minerva Nyhellenia to OL 056 NÉF.TÜNIS to Neptūnus connection. The original blue eyes meaning could have been literal, to show how the deified (OL 038) sagess looked alike. Many, or even all, of the ancient Greco-Roman statues were originally painted in vivid colours.[1.14.6] Above the Cerameicus and the portico called the King's Portico is a temple of Hephaestus. I was not surprised that by it stands a statue of Athena, be cause I knew the story about Erichthonius. But when I saw that the statue of Athena had blue eyes I found out that the legend about them is Libyan. For the Libyans have a saying that the Goddess is the daughter of Poseidon and Lake Tritonis, and for this reason has blue eyes like Poseidon. [source: Pausanias, Description of Greece, 1.14.6
In OL narrative the characters the Minerva and Tunis characters have the same generic Frisian roots, but are otherwise separated timewise. This truncating or pushing together connected, but different things to make a simpler solid narrative is well attested from other examples:
- OL Inka and his Finnish crew (Suomi, suomalainen, Chude...) is the source of Sumerian Inkicuc or Inkishush (line 311) and Greek Inachus, both losing the original context despite unknowingly retaining the story in the unified single name word.
- Quran's example has Aaron of Moses story to be also brother to Mary mother of Jesus, the error echoing the original backdrop story where both Moses and Mary were of the house of Aser and born to father figures with same title e.g. Carl Borgen, The Bock saga An Introduction, p 91-94 on Morse the female Moses and Margareta mother of Jesus (same as Moso of Greeks and Byzantines, Marjatta of Karelian Finns).
- Greco-Roman usage of Hyperborean is similar catch-all term for all racially Nordic peoples, sometimes applying to OL Frisians and sometimes to other Nordic nationalities.
This is the approximate same era as 2nd century Pausanias above.Nehalennia (spelled variously) is a goddess of unclear origin, perhaps Germanic or Celtic. She is attested on and depicted upon numerous votive altars discovered around what is now the province of Zeeland, the Netherlands, where the Schelde River flowed into the North Sea. Worship of Nehalennia dates back at least to the 2nd century BC, and veneration of the goddess continued to flourish in northern Europe in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD.
