I found this interesting enough to blog it...

So interesting! ''The Greek poet Homer says that Dardanus was a son (or descendant) of Zeus [Jove], the chief of the Greek gods (Iliad, book 20). The Roman and Greek legends say that Zeus (called Jupiter in Latin) was a son of Saturn who was also called Kronus. Writing of the Greek gods, Sanchuniathon, a Phoenician historian, says that "Kronus, whom the Phoenicians called Israel, had a son Jehud.” (Cory, I.P. (1876) Cory's Ancient Fragments. London: Reeves & Turner, pp. 21-22.). Thus according to Homer and Sanchuniathon, Dardanus (who founded the Trojan kingdom) was a descendant of Jehud (Judah) whose father was Israel.''
