Definition

What does TIRAS mean?

Tiras
Tiras was, according to Genesis 10 and Chronicles 1, the last-named son of Japheth who is otherwise unmentioned in the Hebrew Bible. According to the Book of Jubilees, the inheritance of Tiras consisted of four large islands in the ocean. Josephus wrote that Tiras became ancestor of the "Thirasians" — a "flame-haired" people according to Xenophanes. Tiras or Tyras in antiquity was also the name of the Dniester river, and of a Greek colony situated near its mouth; the native inhabitants of the surrounding region Tyragetae. The Getae were one of the major components of the Thracians, who the Greeks held to descend from the eponymous Thrax. Some, including Noah Webster, have suggested that Tiras was worshiped by his descendants as Thor, the god of thunder, equating both these forms with the Θουρος mentioned by Homer as the "Ares of the Thracians". The Icelandic saga Prose Edda names Thor as a fair-haired chieftain ancestral to the Germanic peoples, and a king of Thrace. In 1838, the German scholar Johann Christian Friedrich Tuch suggested identifying Tiras with the Etruscans — who, according to Greek and Roman sources such as Herodotus, had been living in Lydia as the Tyrsenoi before emigrating to Italy as early as the 8th century BC. Some scholars have additionally connected both Tiras and the Etruscans with Troas, as well as with the contingent of Sea Peoples known to New Kingdom of Egypt as the "Tursha" or "Teresh of the Sea".
