A word used by Babalon with
great contempt as it signifies all Monotheists, but particularly the early Hebrew
semitic tribes, from which all others are spawned. She pronounces the word as "eek-tohs".
The image intended is one of "fish people", which is something that She also calls
them. This image of "Fish People" refers not so much to the Christian symbolism
of Christ as the fish, but rather the earlier Hebrew tribal totems of the fish,
from which Christianity heavily borrowed. For examples of this in the historical
record see the Amorite God Dagon. The Amorites are one branch of the Ichthyos. Another branch of Ichthyos are the Hyksos who first appeared in recorded
history around 1800 BCE in the eastern Nile Delta of Egypt. Linguistically, the
names Ichthyos and Hyksos
are obviously related.
