A few days ago, I post who is the man above. Today I saw 432 The drop and he mentioned Preston John. The unknown land of the map is called Terra de Vista:South of Africa. First, let's start out with The Kingdom of Aksum. It is the land in which serve as a commercial route between the Roman Empire and Ancient India. The Kingdom of Cush decline and the Kingdom of Aksum reign over it and at that time Persia, Rome and China were the 4 great powers of that time. Early Muslims flee from Mecca to Aksum for religious freedom known as the First Hijra.Tradition claims Axum as the alleged resting place of the Ark of the Covenant and the purported home of the Queen of Sheba. Queen Sheba had a son with King Solomon, his name was Menyelek. aka Menilik. https://www.yorku.ca/inpar/kebra_budge.pdf
Even more interesting is that in the Book of Aksum, the capital city of Aksum, Mazaber, was built by Cush's son Itiyopis, The Ethiopian empire was also known as Abyssinia. Eventually the empire collapse and was taken over by Princess Yodit. More to that story of all places in a video game, very sly indeed! Could there be a connection to Judith in the Apocrypha and KJV? Hmm...5 minutes or less per clip
This report is a peculiar amalgam of historical truth and mythological fiction. The hero of the story, Iohannes, or John, is undoubtedly Yeh-lii Ta-shih. His title of Priest-king, or Presbyter, probably derives from his supposed relation with the Magi Kings. The idea of the frozen river is borrowed from the Alexander Romance, and his great wealth and the emerald sceptre are inspired by the common literary tradition of the East. But why call him Iohannes? Many hypotheses have been put forth, none of them really satisfactory. The Nestorian Christians of Central Asia may have given him this name partly because of phonetic association with a name or title borne by Yeh-lii Ta-shih, but also because of the fact that 'Yuhunan’, the Syriac for John, was one of the most common Nestorian names, and one which had probably some special connnotations in the Nestorian religious and literary tradition which would fit a defender of the faith.14 Unfortunately we know still too little about medieval Nestorianism to solve this riddle.
