Misspelling and Mistranslation of God of Victory and Righteousness

For decades, after their discovery, researchers have written about the Araratian Kingdom, mislabeling, mistranslating, and misspelling foundational elements that would change the course of our understanding once we correct such mistakes. Since linguistic examinations are critical, we only need minor corrections to make a big impact on our understanding of the past.

The Araratian Kingdom of Armenia or erroneously labeled as Urartu venerated a God named Haldi, placing him in Muṣaṣir located in Ancient Armenia, and had prominence in his Temple of Muṣaṣir or Ardini Temple.

First, the God of Haldi had the attributes of being the God of Victory and Triumph and the God of Righteousness. Due to the shifts of the letter L (լ) of and Gh (ղ) in pronunciations, the meaning behind Haldi has faded.

However, we can resurrect the true meaning by realizing that Haldi (Khaldi as pronounced has no meaning) is pronounced as Haghti, as the shift from L (լ) to Gh, (ղ) which reflects his true name and attribute as a God of Victory, as Haghtel Հաղթել in Armenian means “to be triumphant, victorious.” and հաղթանակ “ victory.”

Second, Muṣaṣir is also called Ardini or city of God Arda, and Muṣaṣir Temple is a city of God Arda. Arda can be interpreted as Ardar, which means “righteous” in Armenian. Thus Muṣaṣir, which has Armenian words such as Mush, Mosh, Mooshaser, etc, is also called Ardini as in “city of God of Righteousness” «Արդար Աստծո Քաղաք»:

Additionally, the headdress with horns reflects a continuation of a tradition from Sumer, as reflected in the portrayal of Enki to the adoption of it in Akkad and Assyria and down to Babylon, where the Assyrians first learned of iron use in weapons, sacking the Ardni Temple by Sargon and taking the loot back to its kingdom.
