|Parallels Between Mythological
and the CE3 casesby Dimitris Hatzopoulos

I was intrigued by the possible parallels between the "alien" beings described in the Caponi Italy 1993 / Varginha Brazil 1996 cases and the amphibian beings described in various mythologies, e.g.
1/ the "Nommos" of African tribe Dogon in Mali. The word Nommos is derived from a Dogon word meaning, "to make one drink," The Nommos are usually described as amphibious, hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures. Folk art depictions of the Nommos show creatures with humanoid upper torsos, legs/feet, and a fish-like lower torso and tail.
2/ the pre-Sharun cultures of modern day Iraq contacts with amphibious being known as Oannes (ref: works of Berossus, a priest who was the first person known to have collected those fertile crescent encounter stories in his Babyloniaka, a history of Babylon).
A few days ago, I stumbled upon Youtube's clip of a (spanish production?) documentary on greek TV about the Dogons, which unfortunately was broadcast translated, rather than subtitled (which tends to cause further distortion). In that documentary, there is info about the Nommos, which e.g. describe the Nommos having red eyes, three fingers and breathe through a place in (our) stomach area. See www.youtube.com
Look at the Caponi story and pictures at
Notice the place the "tubes" go in is in the stomach area.
