Also from that original paper, "Along with Sulla, the Scipios were Cornelii, as were the Lentuli and Rufini. Sulla was a Rufini, meaning red hair. The Scipios were also known to have red hair, being called Rutilus. This may also point us at the Phoenicians, who we know had red hair in some lines. And if this is true, then the story about modern Jews getting the red hair from southern Russia would be shown to be false.
We find yet another rarely mentioned clue: Octavian was adopted by Julius Caesar, but he was from gens Octavia, which gained prominence in around 230BC with Octavius Rufus. Which again means “red”. If all these red Phoenicians were related, this means the Octavii were related to the Cornelii. Which would indicate once again that Julius Caesar was promoting them through marriage and adoption even while defeating them in the Civil War. You also have to remember that the given reason Caesar adopted Octavian was that Octavian's mother was Caesar's niece. This Atia was the daughter of Caesar's sister Julia Minor. So the first emperors of Rome were not just Julians through adoption, they were Julians by blood through Atia."
Richard was very big on ancient red-haired progenitors being the "real players", as I recall, but I believe that he was referring to the theories of the late Nicholas de Vere, in that they were Scythians, not Phoenicians. In Greek mythology, Phoenix, the King and eponym of Phoenicia, and son of King Agenor (Miles Mathis names Agenor as the progenitor of the Phoenicians), could be equated phonetically with "Phenius Pharsa" (many variant spellings), King of Scythia. So perhaps we are again dealing with one "person", under different cultural aliases/identities, part of the premier elite royal family, and can achieve some degree of synchronicity with these disparate origin theories.
Nicholas de Vere, for obvious reasons, promoted the de Veres as the senior royal family, with the Fulks/Foulques Counts of Anjou, the original Plantagenets and ancestors of English Folkes families, as their junior line (Fulks of Anjou were described as red-headed and/or ruddy complexioned). However, it has been suggested that the Fulks/Folkes line was the premier line instead, using the de Veres and other prominent families (such as the later Rothschilds) as a convenient layer of cover for them, and thus remaining in the obscure background, unheard of by the world. In this theory, they descend from the "Phocas" dynasty of Eastern Roman Emperors, and go all the way back to "our" Flavian dynastic family of Vespasian and Titus. "Roman Piso" gives them a Herodian descent, which would lead back to the Scythian/Phoenician ancestry mentioned above. These two Flavian Roman Emperors were either the "Christ" or "Antichirst" (depending upon your point of view), who were responsible for the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple in AD 70. In an apocalyptic sense, they have also been considered to be among the seven "heads" of the "Beast" in Revelation.
