Teresh


Teresh
One of the Sea-peoples reign of Merneptah, 1236-1223 BC.
    The Teresh (Tursha) formed part of the confederation of *Sea-peoples who fought against Egypt in the reign of *Merneptah.
    The temple wall-reliefs show them as bearded and wearing pointed kilts with tassels; some also have a medallion suspended around the neck and their chests are protected with a bandaging of strips of linen or leather; they also carry a pair of spears or a scimitar. The Teresh were circumcised, and they have been tentatively identified with the Tyrsenoi, the ancestors of the Etruscans. There is as yet no evidence in Italy to suggest that the Etruscans arrived there at such an early date.
