Phoenicia (Փյունիկիյա = փ.յ.ու.ն.ի.կ.ի.յ.ա. = հավասար ես ունեմ իմ (ծովային) կեսը և կյանքը (ցամաքը)) is in Armenian: ”I have equal: the (sea) half and the life (land)”. Phoenicia was an Armenian State (Kingdom) from about 20 millennium BC until I century BC. Phoenicia was at East bank of Mediterranean sea in the place of the present Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Israel.
The main old towns were: Tir (տ.ի.ր. = մարդկանց տեղ անող) =the place given for men, Sidon (ս.ի.դ.ո.ն. = նա սուրբ տեղ մարդուն մոտիկ) = it is holy place close to man, Bibl (բ.ի.բ.լ. = լավ բարիք մարդուն բերող) =good property-bringer to man, Jerusalem = h-ar-i-sa-gh-e-m = (հ.ար.ի.սա.ղ.ե.մ) = արևը պաշտող մարդկանց էուտյան սա մեծ կենտրոն) =this is the big center of the Sunadoring men entity.
Jerusalem was established at VI millennium BC by Armenians Harries (hari =h-wep-p =the Sun adoring men) who came from the Great Armenia and lived in the South part of Phoenicia, on the territory called Harit = the place of the Sun adoring men. So to call them Horites (հարիտներ, հուրիտներ) is not right. It is necessary to call them Harries, Le, Armenians, who were living in Harrit (հարիներ, ապրող Հարիտում).
Phoenicia and Cilicia were the Armenian great marine countries. Their hardy sailors and scientists, using big marine ships, researched overseas far lands, even America and Antarktida at VIII-VI millennia BC. In Central America they taught local tribes culture, built there the Sun-God temples and ziggurat-type pyramids (see Item 3.25).
Afterwards Phoenicians built also another famous town Carthagen in the African bank of Mediterranean sea. Further this town with its lands grew and became a big state. The word Carthagen means: քար.թ.ա.գ.ե.ն. = քարի պես հավերժ ու գեղեցիկ եղավ նա = became eternal as stone, and nice. Phoenicians (and Harries) were Armenians and used, of course, the Armenian language and Armenian Alphabet.
The opinion that all other Alphabets of the World came from Phoenician Alphabet is right, but it will be more correct to say that all other Alphabets came from the Armenian Alphabet, because the Phoenician one was the same Armenian Alphabet and Phoenicia was just a part of the Old Armenia.
Armenian old history is thrown out from all-human old history. Therefore, in human old history there are many problems, when there are facts, which do not have explanations. Such facts are also the ruins of very old temples and pyramids in Central America and towns as Machu-Pikchu, the age of which is more than six thousand years (so, much older than civilizations of Maya, Aztecs, Incas).
