Between Scylla and Charybdis: The Jews in Sicily

In Greek mythology, Scylla was a monster that lived on one side of a narrow channel of water, opposite her counterpart Charybdis. The two sides of the strait were within an arrow’s range of each other—so close that sailors attempting to avoid Charybdis would pass dangerously close to Scylla and vice versa.

Charybdis was a sea monster in the Greek Mythology, which was later rationalized as a whirlpool and considered a shipping hazard in the Strait of Messina.

Agegius Aigis

CAGGEGI – Pellegrino (hağğāğ)

There is a Greek word agios (spelled alpha-gamma-giota-omicron-sigma) which means saint, and so some have suggested that the Maltese surname Agius is of Greek origin meaning ‘saintly’ or ‘holy’ or “deserving of honour”. The surname Agius thus could have been a nickname describing someone of high morals or who was very pious. There is no conclusive evidence for this derivation as far as can be made out, and Arabic origins have been mooted; for example one version is that ‘Agius’ meant something like an old man or a wise old woman (in Arabic). In this context, it has been said, though not so far corroborated, that the ‘motto’ that goes with the Agius surname, derived from the Book of Ecclesiasticus Chapter 25 is: “Corona senum multa peritia”, This could be literally translated into English as: “Much experience is the crown of old men”.


Arabic – personal name or nickname derived from Arabic adjuz meaning old man

Siculo Arabic – nickname syncopated form of surname Agegius

Siculo Greek – place name derived from Agios in Greece meaning holy, sacred

Sicilian – personal name derived from Accius

An old form of the surname is already attested in Sicily in 1145; it figures among the names of Muslim serfs under Norman rule.


This is not all, Examining the list of descendants of Istio, we realize that he is the father of all the peoples who were together, towards the end of the reign of Clovis, under the scepter of the Merovingian dynasty : Franks, Allamans, Romans of Gaul and Bretons of Brittany. It is, no doubt, in a frank country that we have imagined to give them a common origin; a stranger would not have bothered to reconcile the mythological group with the political grouping. It was also a Frank who took the Visigoths for the Goths par excellence, and who designated their brothers under the name of Welches, a name which the Franks were accustomed to give to all the transalpine. Let us note finally that, in most of our manuscripts, the genealogy of the three brothers is preceded by a catalog of the kings of the Romans (it is, again, Romans of Gaul) containing the following filiation: Alaneus Papulo Egetius Agegius Siagrius, per quem Romani regnum perdiderunt. This catalog confirms both the Frankish provenance of our document and the approximate date we gave it: in fact, the author still knows Syagrius and his father Ægidius, and even the name of Aetius is not unknown to him; nevertheless, he has only a confused idea of ​​the events that took place in the middle of the fifth century, since between these two last characters he establishes a very imaginary link of filiation. This, I repeat, brings us back to the first quarter of the sixth century, the only moment in which all the circumstances of which the concomitance is reflected here are united. Do I need to add that I do not claim any traditional character for the genealogical classification of peoples included in our 6th century document, and that I believe it purely arbitrary? The proof is in the mention of the Romans and Britons, who certainly were not included among the descendants of Istio among the Germans of Tacitus. On the other hand, Pline ranks in the group of Windili the Burgundians, who appear in our list among the descendants of Irmino. These facts betray the personal work of an arranger, who has made arbitrary combinations of an ancient tradition; they must not, however, give the change on the true value of it. If it had not enjoyed a great popularity at the time when the composition of our text was placed, and if the arranger himself had not considered it with the respect that a national tradition deserves.
