Nummo Ancestors were Mermaids Dec. 3, 2022 by Shannon Dorey

Scylla 4th century BCEBy Sailko - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0,

The alien Nummo were aquatic beings and the Nummo Ancestors, who were part human and part Nummo, had human upper bodies and fish-tailed lower bodies. Depictions of these figures appear in various cultures throughout history.

The Greek goddess Scylla appears on this 4th century BCE Apulian rhyton from Ruvo di Puglia in southern Italy. Besides her fish tail, Scylla was often depicted with wings further associating her with the alien Nummo, who although being aquatic, had gizzards like birds. Scylla ruled over the depths of the sea as well as above and below land.Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech p. 61

Dagon Swims with Dolphins

The Nummo Ancestors were hermaphrodites and Dagon's breasts and beard reveal her/his androgynous nature on this amphora, which associates Dagon with the Eight Nummo Ancestors. The name "Dagon" was first mentioned in Mari texts, and is from Amorite names in Syria and Canaan dating to about 2500 BCE. Dagon carries a garland of hearts as she/he swims through the sea surrounded by dolphins.Dorey, Day of the Fish p. 73

Mermaid Misericord Carlisle, ©R. Hill

Mermaids appear in the misericords of Cathedrals in the Middle Ages as a way for pagans to hide their beliefs from the Catholic Church and the Inquisition. The heretic images were carved on the underside of hinged seats of choir stalls. When the seats were down the images were hidden. The misericord shown here is dated from 1400-1419 and appears in Carlisle Cathedral in England.Dorey, The Nummo pp. 153-155

1659 Warsaw Coat of Arms

In the middle of the 14th century a mermaid was depicted on the Warsaw coat of arms. The mermaid above, dating to around 1652, appears on an accounting book of the city.

She is a breasted mermaid with a serpent-fish-tail, wings and duck's feet. My research reveals that waterfowl were especially identified with the Nummo because they were aquatic and associated with birds.Dorey, Day of the Fish p. 311

Because they were hermaphrodites, the Nummo were often depicted as twins and depictions of dual ducks appear in the San Callisto catacombs beneath Rome. Robert Eisler believed that the dual ducks, "...were symbolic of the souls of the just ones in Paradise -as seen in the fourth sky by the visionary author of Baruch's Apocalypse."" Is Baruch's "fourth sky" referring to another planet existing in another solar system? The Greek Apocalypse of Baruch was written sometime between the fall of Jerusalem in 70 CE and the 3rd century CE.Dorey, The Nummo p. 83

The Nummo have a long history with the Earth and it is quite possible that some of them still exist here. I believe that they made themselves scarce during the Inquisition when many people were murdered because of beliefs associated with the Nummo.

Sometime between 1870 and 1890, a mermaid was reported from the area of Vancouver and Victoria in Canada. Another one was spotted in the same area in 1967."In some of the earliest accounts of Blackbeard's sail logs in the BBC documentary Pirates, he instructed his crew on several voyages to steer away from charted waters which he called 'enchanted' for fear of merfolk or mermaids, which Blackbeard and many members of the crew reported seeing and documenting."

A mermaid was spotted in August 2009 in the town of Kiryat Yam in Israel, and in 2012, "work on two reservoirs near the towns of Gokwe and Mutare in Zimbabwe stopped when workers refused to work there, claiming that mermaids had hounded them away from the sites. The claim was reported by Samuel Sipepa Nkomo, Water Resources Minister."
