Europe is named for Europa, the daughter of the King of Tyre, then her name must be Phoenician, no one seems to question why the entire 'European' continent is named after a Levantine Princess.

According to the etymology of Europe, from εὖρος 'Wide & Broad' and thus רחב, or perhaps with the -אב suffix, אברחב
and note the pronunciation key of εὖ /éu̯/ → /eβ/ → /ev/ is similar to אב /év/, /av/.

Herodotus 1.2
Greeks landed at Tyre in Phoenicia and carried off the king's daughter Europa.

This characteristic being carried away by men, similar too Rehob, titled הזונה which is ἧ γυνή ( ἧ γυνά, ἧ βανά), this is
also the source of the English 'Queen, Cwen'

The ב ending in רחב in the Greek becomes ου, so another candidate is εὔρου, 'flowing well, plentifully, fair-flowing'
from ῥοῦ 'stream, flow of water, current', similar too רוח 'Wind, current', Εὖρος means 'East wind' for Europa came from
the East and she is the sister of Cadmus (קדמת) 'East', note the word play between πέδον(עדן), with קדמת/ἀνατολὰς

ἀνατολὰς - ἀναδολὰς - ἀναδομὰς - ἀκαδομὰτ - κδμτ/קדמת

εὖρος, πλατύς - Flat & Broad

Two words same meaning, the Latin is Latus'

πλατύς → Latus
εὔρους → רחב

פלחב → פרחב → רחב(πλατύ) → Latu → Flat, Plate (Latin?)
פרחד → פרחב ‬ → Broad, Breadth

Europe (Phoenician princess) is the mother of Rhadamanthus, Sarpedon and Minos., why are Greeks claiming descent from Phoenicians, unfortunately scholars are not allowed to question anything that involves the Phoenicians.

Rhadamanthus (Ῥαδάμανθυς) - rhabdos mantis

ῥάβδος - שרביט

The word שרביט does resemble Sarpedon (Σαρπηδών - שרביטים) and the ending of Ῥαδάμανθυς is similar too ἀνθέω 'bloom, blossom' in the Hebrew is נצה and confirmed in Biblical poetry.

Ezekiel 7:10
Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.
- Gk. ῥάβδος ἤνθηκεν > Ῥαδάμανθυς 'the rod hath blossomed'
- Hb. צץ המטה

The word המטה is ἧ φυτά 'Plant' from φύω 'bring forth, produce, put forth, this binds all the meaning
of המטה, 'of the thing planted, a tribe, a tree, spring from parents plantation.

Rhadamanthus also a law-giver of Crete, exiled to Boeotia and became the judge one of the judges of the dead to judge the souls of easterners
and Boeotia (יבוסי) , is where Cadmus founded Thebes, compare Boeotia with Boethusians.

Genesis 15:2
ויאמר אברם אדני יהוה מה־תתן־לי ואנכי הולך ערירי ובן־משק ביתי הוא דמשק אליעזר

λέγει δὲ Αβραμ δέσποτα τί μοι δώσεις ἐγὼ δὲ ἀπολύομαι ἄτεκνος ὁ δὲ υἱὸς Μασεκ τῆς οἰκογενοῦς μου οὗτος Δαμασκὸς Ελιεζερ

But Abram said, "Lord, what wilt thou give me?' but i am departing without heir
?but the son of Mesek, my homebred, this Eliezer of Damascus?

This verse as issues, משק is undefinable in the Lexicon and resembles the following דמשק, the clue is עזר, in Joshua 1:4, this word is translated into σύμμαχος 'leagued, fighting along, ally' from μάχη 'Battle' compare with חמש 'battle-array' (Gen 18:24)

משק - μάχη
דמשק - σύμμαχος

οἰκογενοῦς ' is a compound of בן & בית, in the next verse, 15:3, בן־בית translates into οἰκογενής,
as a consequence of writing right to left, the suffix & prefix are reversed .

οἰκο-γενής → γεν-ϝοἰκ → γν-ϝἰκ → בן־בית
חמור־בן → בן־חמור → ὁμηρ-ίδης
ישראל־בן → Ἀτρείδης

οἶκος > οἶκολ > היכל
θεός > εός > εόλ > אל
ϝἔπος > ϝἔπορ > δἔπορ > דבר
ὄνος > ὄνορ > חמר (οἶνος > οἶνορ > חמר) 'Wine, Reddish Donkey'

μέγας > μέγαλ > גדל
Ζεύς > Ζεύρ > צור (Thor)

Jacob → Israel

Previous names in Genesis undergo dialectic change, Abram → Abraham, was the change
from Jacob → Israel purely dialectic? The name ישראל & יעקב look completely different
from each other, but using 'Greek' as an intermediary, it's doable.

In Genesis 25:26, the character so-named for touching Esau's Heel, the emphases is that the Heel is the extremity if the leg, there
is a word for this, ἀκρόπους. (עקב, אפס)

The loss of the ρ resolved by the fact that ἄκρος roots from ἀκή, but also Ἄκρος roots Ἄτλας
and the terminals, ς & λ interchange.

Ἄκρας → Ἄκραλ → Ἄτραλ → Ισραλ → ישראל (Ἀτρεύς)
Ἄκρου → Ἄκροβ → Ἄκοβ → Ιἀκοβ → יעקב
Ἄκρόπους → Ἄκρόπ → Ἄκόπ → Ιἀκόβ → יעקב (alt.)

There is a double entendre, When the second twin holds the heel of the first twin, it produces the image of a 'Three-legged pot, known as 'κακκάβη' (caccabus), that roots כוכבא‬ (Kokhba) and the synonym of τρίπους (רבקה), a word that appears as תרפים
in Genesis 31:19, belonging too Jacob.

Mount Atlas is in West Africa (Phoenician territory) and regarded as the pillar of heaven and the Ancient Greeks divide the words
into three, Asia, Libya and Europe (τόπος).

אפס- τόπος, ὁπῶς, πούς

- μασχάλη (Greek)
- Axilla

אציל = ακτυλ > δάκτυλος (Dactyl) "Finger'
אצבע = ἀκή πούς

In Daniel 10:4, על יד translates ἐχόμενα (ἐχό=יד) 'Side' and this verse also reads יד גדול (δά-κτυλ)
to describe חדקל (Εδδεκελ), elsewhere, ἐχόμενα is a reading of אצל, contextually, in Dan 10:4, יד means ὁδός ' way, road'
and יד is cognate of Ἀγυιεύς, ἀγυιά, γυῖον, ἐγγυάω, ποδός, λάχος, ἐχό and ἄγω

Genesis 34:21 - רחבת־ידים (εὐρυάγυια, εὐρυόδεια).

δάκτυλος also the name for the Palm Tree, roots דקל, compare with חדקל

Eden - πέδον
Pison - πόδιον
Gihon - γυῖον
Hiddekel- δάκτυλος
Phrates - κεράς (arm or branch of a river)

Agyieus (Ἀγυιεύς) - guardian of the streets and highways. a name of Apollo (god of the palm tree). (2 Samuel 18:18)
*Apollo appears in Judges 13:18, as פלאי and in Nehemiah 6:15 as אלול (Apollonios ), the name of a month at Elis, Methymna
for the date-palm harvest, similar too the month of Tammuz (Dionusios ) for the Mulberry harvest.

The very first word of the Iliad is μῆνιν "Wrath" and the word as no etymology attached to it, the alternative form is μᾶνιν. After searching through the Hebrew lexicon, i find that μᾶνιν is פני.

Leviticus 17:10 - I will even set my wrath (פני) against that soul that eats blood
Psalm 34:16 - The wrath (פני) of the LORD is against them that do evil
1 Samuel 1:18 - Her wrath (פניה) was no more sad.

All the translations of these verses incorrectly read 'face of the Lord'. The alternative word is אף but the translation is πνοιή (פני) (cf. πυρωθείς πνοιή Διός - חרה אף יהוה - Deuteronomy 11:17) .

Lliad 1
ἀείδω 'Sing' (הד, הידד, הגה, הידד )
θεὰ (אלהיא) *The אל is a prosthetic article
Πηληϊάδεω (בן־פלוא)
Ἀχιλλεύς ( אצילות)

Ζεύς is possibly the Semitic עז-הוּא-עז with the Hebrew AZ corresponding to the IE "is".
