Cyrus Gordon's most emblematic and enduring intellectual legacy will undoubtedly be his vision of cultural synthesis interweaving the East Mediterranean axis of Syria-Palestine, the delta of Egypt, and Minoan Crete which became the multiplex foundation of Greek and Hebrew civilizations. Recent scholarship on contact between these cultures and, indeed, the work of Rome's greatest poet Vergil, vindicates Gordon's farsighted vision.
