Ancient Alias Names List (2017)

Ancient Alias Names List (2017)
(Roman Piso, 03-05-2017)

This list covers many of the aliases and pen names that were used from the first century CE, up to near modern times (see my paper, ‘Napoleon Bonaparte & The Holy Roman Empire’, which, gives his descent from Arrius Piso and his relationship to various popes). By the way, I have often been asked to research and uncover the truth about all of the popes; all the way up to the current pope. I have no interest in revealing the family trees of later day popes. Other researchers are free to do that if they so choose.

However, regarding the use of aliases and pen names by notables in history, there are many, many more that are known by me than can be listed here currently. And, many more will be listed in later updates to this list. The reason for giving this list is to help researchers to get on with their work as an aid, so that they may tell just which individual was using which names or whose biographical data was being given by authors using those names.

To be able to obtain, deduce and confirm the various aliases being used is time consuming and much more complex than the vast majority of researchers are as yet prepared to do on their own. This has been a monumental task. Due to the requirements involved in uncovering these alias names, only a handful of individuals at this point in time may be able to do this. And, since we all have (at this time) a relatively short lifespan, and due to other factors; not everyone will be able to do this, nor would they want to devote what they must in order to do it correctly.

Since I have been studying ancient history and religion correctly (using every required facet involved) for more than 20 years, I have this unique ability. I have already written several research papers explaining just what is needed in order to do this; but I will be writing more so as to better clarify and instruct researchers in this process. A part of this process is compiling individual ‘profiles’ (an example of one such profile is given near the end of this paper). In the meantime, researchers who have not yet acquired the discipline necessary to do this themselves, will have to rely upon the information which has been given them by those such as myself.

Also, for now, I will give what examples I can to help fellow researchers to better understand just how these alias names and pen names have been uncovered and why they were used in the first place. At the end of this paper, you will find some links to research papers that various examples, etc. These aliases are key to understanding the true nature of ancient history and religion, and are necessary to understand ancient texts as the authors themselves did, as well as their extremely well-educated royal readership.

As it happens, I have had a huge edge in getting at the truth and true nature of ancient texts, as I have made many important discoveries; including the use of a language inside of language, which is now known as ‘The Royal Language’. As you may or may not know, I am the founder of new methodology and processes that comprise a whole new way of studying ancient history which is known as ‘The New Classical Scholarship’.

What must now be known and accepted by academia is that ancient history and all other literature written in antiquity on up to Medieval times and beyond, was being written by royalty within a synthesized environment known as an Oligarchy, a situation in which has now been termed ‘Royal Supremacy’. Those who have yet to learn what I and a few others have regarding uncovering aliases is that a) this is what we were left with, and b) this is the only real means of uncovering the truth in history, and c) what is to be found and learned regarding history is not, and never has been, in our hands.

That is, it was left in a certain way, by certain people and no matter how we may want it to be otherwise, it is not and never will be. It is what it is. There is no going “back” to studying ancient history in the incorrect way that virtually everyone had become familiar with. We must, therefore, move forward and learn these new ways.

Arrius Calpurnius Piso had used so many aliases that it is highly probable that there are still others that even I do not yet know of. But, for now, this is a list of alias names that were used by Arrius Piso and his royal relatives.

Overview Of Pliny The Younger

Overview In Image Form

The Jews of the 1st & 2nd centuries CE/AD were at war with the Romans who were creating Christianity as a part of that war. After 70 CE (Common Era), the only Jews left were the Scribes and Pharisees. They were writing the Talmud. In the Talmud, they were leaving a record of who was involved in the creation of Christianity. And they left references in the Talmud referring to two main individuals: Arrius Piso (aka the NT ‘Jesus’, and Flavius Josephus) and Pliny The Younger (the NT ‘Paul’).

Again, we must work to change academia. Virtually all ancient history scholars have been wrong. And, they continue to “teach” others to be wrong. This must stop. Spread this information and help better educate as many people as you can, particularly, those within academia.

If you know someone who cannot read this because they cannot read in English, please read it to them or otherwise translate it for them. This information is extremely important and must be made universal knowledge.
