Phoenix, Phenix | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

 

The phoenix is a fabulous sacred firebird

(mentioned in the Phoenician legends and the Egyptian and later the Greek mythos)...

 

The phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor...

 

According to the Greeks the bird lives in Arabia, nearby a cool well.

 

Each morning at dawn, it would bathe in the water and sing such a beautiful song, that the sun-god stops his chariot to listen.

 

The Phenix would feed upon oils of balsalm and frankinsense...

 

There exists only one phoenix at the time...
