Bellerophon and Uhhaziti[edit]

  1. It is possible that Bellerophon (or else Bellerophontes) was the same person with Uhhaziti, king of Arzawa.
  2. It is possible that "Arzawa" was the "Argive land", ancient colony of Argos (or else Achaeans, Myceneans), in Asia Minor (Arzawa < Arga-wa ).

Note: The word "-wa" means "land" in Hittite language.

Cultural Reference[edit]

The saga of Belleraphon is a key part of John Barth's National Book Award winning story Chimera.

Bellerophonetic Letters[edit]

I nearly created a new article concerning Bellerophonetic (sometimes Bellerophonic) Letters until I saw the reference footnote. Does anyone think it deserves it's own page? The reference is excellent though it doesn't actually give a definition that the letter contains prejudicial information regarding the bearer. Also the article to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern doesn't use the term either. Sorry for being a pain but I thought it would be good to have a page that could be connected to terms in letters etc.--FruitMonkey 09:24, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Would it really overwhelm this article? Better check the best usage of the term: Bellerophonetic doesn't sound the ring of pure gold.--Wetman 11:08, 8 August 2007 (UTC)


Out of curiosity, why would the name of a mythological hero whose story was around centuries before the Greeks made contact with the Romans contain a latin cognate? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:32, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Because both Latin and Greek are Indo-European languages. In fact, the branch of the Indo-European language family leading to Greek is more similar to the branch leading to Latin (and thus French, Spanish, etc) than to any other major group of I-E languages. Remember, "cognate" does not mean "borrowed from" it means "derived from the same source as". (talk) 16:17, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
