Footnote: A Mediterranean word in Nahuatl (Aztec)
While I have found several Bronze Age Northwestern European words in the Creek and Uchee languages, there is at least one word in Totonac and Nahuatl, which clearly has Mediterranean roots. It is the root word for a god . . . teo. Ethnic groups around the Gulf of Mexico Basin would pronounce that word, Teo, Deo or Theo. Deo is one form of the word for a god in Latin. The Mainland Greek word is Theos (θεός), while on Crete and Cyprus, the word is Theo. However, the petroglyphic boulders recently found in the Sierra de Cobre (Copper Mountains) northeast of Tepotzlan, Mexico are identical to those in northern Georgia, western Ireland, northern Scotland and southern Scandinavia – not the eastern Mediterranean Basin. I have no explanation other than there is clearly much about the past of mankind that we still do not know.
