Photo: Both Herodotus and Strabo contend that the Phrygians and Armenians (in fact, all the white inhabitants of Asia Minor) have European origin in the mountains of Macedonia and on the banks of the Danube. This point is elucidated by an extensive examination of names and popular legends. These eastern people are supposed to be descended from a primitive and ante-historic people, belonging to the region of " the hyperborean Atlas," from which the Eridanos descends in four arms. Humboldt's theory of a prehistoric emigration from west to east is thus supposed to be continued; viz. of the Atlantes and Amazons or Aryans to Asia, where they founded many cities. "The Manes of these people appears in Armenia as Adam, and in India as Manns." The primitive population of these Asiatic regions is supposed to have been barbarous, and to have received civilization from this European immigration.
