Meaning of the baby name MANETHO.


MANETHO.  Greco-Egyptian.  An Egyptian high-priest of Heliopolis in the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus, about B.C. 290, by whose desire he compiled a History of Egypt, the materials for which he asserted he had obtained from inscriptions preserved in the temple of Thoth, or Hermes Trismegistus.  His chronology, which has been handed down in a condensed condition by Africanus, and afterwards still further reduced by Syncellus and Eusebius, gives a period of 53,535 years for the duration up to that date of the Egyptian empire.  The arrangement of the dynasties of Manetho is very uncertain, and though monumental records attest the general truth of his statements, the synchronization of them is one of the most difficult problems in Archaic chronology. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).  Some writers use the form Manethon.

 ... the name Manetho (Μανέθως) has been supposed by Bunsen to be resolvable into Μανεθωθ, "Ægyptiace Μα-n-Thoth, i.e. datus-a-Thoth," equivalent to Hermodorus.  Mulleri "Fragm. Hist. Gr." (Egypt's Record of Time, to the Exodus of Israel, Galloway, 1869)
