Reptilian Proof? Part 1

With all the interest in the Reptilians lately, I thought we'd go back into the past, fact and fiction, and that muddied area in between......

Reptilian humanoids are a common motif in mythology, folklore, science fiction, ufology, and the conspiracy theories of John Rhodes ( BTW, Rhodes is considered the first Reptilian researcher.) and David Icke. They are variously said to be beings that evolved on Earth parallel to mankind, extraterrestrials, supernatural entities, or the remains of a pre-human civilization, and are known by many names, including Snakepeople, Reptoids, dinosauroids, lizardfolk or lizardmen and Chitauri.

Reptilian humanoids of varying depictions have been common in the myths and legends of many cultures throughout history.

Cecrops I, the mythical first King of Athens was half man, half snake. This is illustrated, for example, on a frieze on the Pergamon Altar in Pergamum. In these images from Pergamum, some of which depict gigantomachy, one sees the giant Klyteros with huge serpents between his legs. Boreas (Aquilon to the Romans) was the Greek god of the cold north wind, described by Pausanias as a winged man with serpents between his legs.

(Okay I went back and checked....his top half was shaped like a man and the bottom half in serpent OR fish-tail form. He is also considered MYTHICAL. So we either have a link here to a lizard man, or a fish man. H.P.Lovecraft would be ecstatic.)
