Peleg Began Pelasgia Granddaughter of Pelasgus Having Born Son Arcas by Zeus or Japheth Who Lived Many Centuries


That the Pelasgians were among the first and became dominant on the peninsula now called Greece during the Ice Age is born out by the Greek legend that king Lycaon was a son of Pelasgus (Peleg listed in Genesis 10), whose daughter Callisto bore Arcas, namesake of Arcadia. The father of king Arcas was said to have been Zeus, the god of daylight (days/deus), known to the Romans later as Zeus-Jupiter, or Iapetus, Japheth in Genesis 10 whose life extended perhaps five hundred years after Noah’s Flood.
