Why does Sanchuniathon say that Athena is the daughter of Cronus/Saturn and not Zeus?

>inb4 "Wtf is Sanchuniathon?"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanchuniathon
>Sanchuniathon (/ˌsæŋkjʊˈnaJəθɒn/; Ancient Greek: Σαγχουνιάθων Sankhouniáthōn; probably from Phoenician: 𐤎𐤊𐤍𐤉𐤕𐤍, romanized: SKNYTN, Saḵūnyatān, "[the god] Sakon has given"), also known as Sanchoniatho the Berytian, is the Phoenician author of three lost works originally written in the Phoenician language and surviving only in partial paraphrase and summary of a Greek translation by Philo of Byblos, according to the Christian bishop Eusebius. These few fragments comprise the most extended literary source concerning Phoenician religion in either Greek or Latin: Phoenician sources, along with all of Phoenician literature, were lost with the parchment on which they were written

>All knowledge of Sanchuniathon and his work comes from the Praeparatio Evangelica of Eusebius (I. chs ix-x), which contains some information about him, along with the only surviving excerpts from his writing, as summarized and quoted from his purported translator, Philo of Byblos
>>
>>12673981
>Eusebius quotes neo-Platonist writer Porphyry as stating that Sanchuniathon of Berytus (Beirut) wrote the truest history because he obtained records from Hierombalus priest of Ieuo (Ancient Greek: Ἰευώ), that Sanchuniathon dedicated his history to Abibalus (Abibaal) king of Berytus, and that it was approved by the king and other investigators, the date of this writing being before the Trojan War (around 1200 BC) approaching close to the time of Moses, "when Semiramis was queen of the Assyrians." Thus Sanchuniathon is placed firmly in the mythic context of the pre-Homeric Greek Heroic Age, an antiquity from which no other Greek or Phoenician writings are known to have survived to the time of Philo

>Sanchuniathon claims to have based his work on "collections of secret writings of the Ammouneis discovered in the shrines", sacred lore deciphered from mystic inscriptions on the pillars which stood in the Phoenician temples, lore which exposed the truth—later covered up by allegories and myths—that the gods were originally human beings who came to be worshipped after their deaths and that the Phoenicians had taken what were originally names of their kings and applied them to elements of the cosmos (compare euhemerism), worshipping forces of nature and the sun, moon, and stars. Eusebius cites Sanchuniathon in his attempt to discredit pagan religion based on such foundations

>And Uranus, having succeeded to his father's rule, takes to himself in marriage his sister Ge, and gets by her four sons, Elus who is also Kronos, and Baetylus, and Dagon who is Siton, and Atlas. Also by other wives Uranus begat a numerous progeny; on which account Ge was angry, and from jealousy began to reproach Uranus, so that they even separated from each other

>But Uranus, after he had left her, used to come upon her with violence, whenever he chose, and consort with her, and go away again; he used to try also to destroy his children by her; but Ge repelled him many times, having gathered to herself allies. And when Kronos had advanced to manhood, he, with the counsel and help of Hermes Trismegistus (who was his secretary), repels his father Uranus, and avenges his mother

>To Kronos are born children, Persephone and Athena. The former died a virgin: but by the advice of Athena and Hermes Kronos made a sickle and a spear of iron. Then Hermes talked magical words to the allies of Kronos, and inspired them with a desire of fighting against Uranus on behalf of Ge. And thus Kronos engaged in war, and drove Uranus from his government, and succeeded to the kingdom. Also there was taken in the battle the beloved concubine of Uranus, being great with child, whom Kronos gave in marriage to Dagon. And in his house she gave birth to the child begotten of Uranus, which she named Demarus

>After this Kronos builds a wall round his own dwelling, and founds the first city, Byblos in Phoenicia

What does this Owl of Athena mean? Related to the topic, I've seen /x/fags associate it with Cronus/Saturn/Moloch.

Was he just an Assyria phile though? A pre-jewish jew?

>These few fragments comprise the most extended literary source concerning Phoenician religion in either Greek or Latin: Phoenician sources, along with all of Phoenician literature, were lost with the parchment on which they were written
So greatly rediscovered fragments.

>summarized and quoted from his purported translator, Philo of Byblos
Byblos is what gave birth to all modern Egyptian, Jewish, and Arab cultures so go on...

>that Sanchuniathon dedicated his history to Abibalus (Abibaal) king of Berytus, and that it was approved by the king and other investigators, the date of this writing being before the Trojan War (around 1200 BC) approaching close to the time of Moses
Astoundingly accurate yet controversial...

>Thus Sanchuniathon is placed firmly in the mythic context of the pre-Homeric Greek Heroic Age, an antiquity from which no other Greek or Phoenician writings are known to have survived to the time of Philo
The Greeks have the Parian chronicle but it's certainly older than anything Phoenician.

>the gods were originally human beings who came to be worshipped after their deaths and that the Phoenicians had taken what were originally names of their kings and applied them to elements of the cosmos
Probably the most controversial thing since it would entail that Phoenicians were Greeks.

>on which account Ge was angry, and from jealousy began to reproach Uranus, so that they even separated from each other
Divorce entails marriage which entails high civilization. NOT POSSIBLE.

>>After this Kronos builds a wall round his own dwelling, and founds the first city, Byblos in Phoenicia

You can't be serious. Why isn't /his/ frothing with vitriol from all sides about this??

According to Herodotus, the Athenians were Pelasgic in origin, the original peoples of Greece and probably the descendants of the Minoans. Athena likewise is unique among the rest of Indo-European pantheons, indicating that she inhabited the area long before the Greeks arrived.

Chronus/Saturn/Zeus are just different iterations of the same divine essence in late neoplatonism.

Because she's the battle aspect of Inanna. Aphrodite the love aspect. The planet Venus has a period where it disappears and reappears some days later. This phenomenon is the cause for Venus to be sometimes deified as two individuals or two sexes.
Innana was the daughter of Anu.
She was part of a triad with her symbol in pic related at the top row.
