Island of Crete Initially Called Kaptara for Ham’s Grandson Later Named for Wife of Minos When Ice Age Ended


During the Ice Age (in the aftermath of Noah’s Flood), Ham’s grandson Caphtor (progenitor of the Capthorim in Genesis 10) settled the island circa 2200 b. c. which became know as Kaptara, and when the Ice Age ended about eight hundred years later, king Minos (a son of the phoenician queen Europa) named the island for his wife Crete circa 1400 b. c.
