androphagiTerm used by ancient Hellenes (Greeks) to describe Semitic cannibals (haplogroup I) - the Germanic Goths - on their way from Scandza across Balto-Slavic territory to the coasts of the Sarmatians (Skolotoi, Scythians), the Crimea, where the Ionians traditionally had some important trade centres. The bastards left by the androphagi at coasts of Black Sea were known as Bastarnae and the androphagi (Goths) moved west to invade Celtic Esperia (Europe); Hercynia became Germany, Gallia became France, Iberia became Spain, e.t.c. The androphagi as the most agressive and degenerated cannibalistic tribe of the Arabian Peninsula were driven out by their relatives, who eventually became Arabs and Jews, around 7000-9000 BCE, and became pirates of the east Mediterrean shores. They invaded the Balkans and settled on the Illyrian shores (current Albania and Bosnia). Around 5000 BCE some androphagi reached Scandza (south of Scandinavia) leaving traces of horror, e.g. the excavations at Herxheim.

Traces of their invasions can be found at proto-Slavic Iława (Eulau) ca. 2400 BCE, and Dołęża (Tollense) ca. 1200 BCE, where Skolotian (Scythian) cavalry had to be ordered from Vysperia (Silesia) to withdraw the massive androphagi invasion and protect local Slavic peasants and their Aryan nobility. Both sites are currently again and still under androphagi (German) occupation. The branch of the androphagi, which still had bases on Illyrian shores was known in this time as Philistines, as described in the Hebrew Torah (Bible), in Egyptian and Nasatyan (Hittite) inscriptions. While the Roman invasion in Europe and the Turkic invasion in Central Asia the androphagi started their invasion of Esperia (Europe), with the help of Turkic mercenaries invaded Rome and since, using Roman bureaucracy, propaganda, religion and other imperialistic techniques invade all continents of our planet. The traditions of the androphagi didn't change much through millennia - while the French Revolution they made pants from human skin and butchered women for fat, the atrocities of their (Anglo-Saxon, Frankish, German, Hispanic, Hollandaise, Portugue
