there's a lot i'd like to cover here but i'm on the PS3 so typing is tedious... i'll get back when i can. this thread is the result of following a thread from Kronos' gematria and mythologies. Amazingly, one can read all sorts of alchemy through this thread following, from vacuum to mushrooms to psychology/ego to winestone to nested rings and joe cells to sexual energy and kundalini... let's get started... i'll try to provide links when i can... a lot of this builds on old research and memory too though.
Kronos is a god of agriculture, not to be confused with Chronos, god of time, apparently. But who can separate agriculture and time? Kronos is from union of heaven/Ouranos and earth/Gaia. Kronos' son Zeus eventually imprisons him in Tartaros, something of an underworld. This is not meant to designate simple tartar, but winestone (a stone which is not a stone) which is found in wine casks, aka 'hollow oak'. We shall find our lion and serpent symbols along the way...

I don't see the symbolism in phrygian caps but I do think they are very stylish. Of course I don't know too much about them either but I'll never forget how much I loved them while playing the Legend of Zelda series. I'll check out the links when you post them.

a bit of gematria... kronos = 510. Notice the 51 found in the Great Pyramid. In greek gematria 510 =
boulh... 'purpose, counsel, perhaps conscience', but is phonetically similar to bole (armenian)... well, see for yourself
http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=bole&searchmode=none
bole, bull, bowl... we'll meet the bull with Mithras who wears a Phrygian cap. We'll meet bole as the root 'to throw, cast', as in katabole, to cast under, as was Kronos by Zeus. The only use of Tartaros in the NT is kata tartarow, to cast down to Tartaros/hell... 2Peter 2:4
tartaron meant winestone. tartaros meant underworld or specifically "unbounded 1st entity from which light and cosmos are born".
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tartarus

oh, i forgot, Akkadian kaiamanu = constant, enduring. As Bel said about the etymology of "permanence"... this is attributed to Kronos, aka Saturn, Attis, Mithras...

also tartaros is described surrounded by a flaming river (electricity?) and triple walls (joe cell) by Virgil's Aeneid.
A supposed entrance to Tartaros was
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aornum
notice the greek name of the cave with ntron and chasma.
ok, back to gematria 510 =
Nyx... night... death, slumber, ignorance... the unconscious.
tis... means "who, which, what"... reminds me of "what then is it?" we also find tis in the name Attis.
mou... "my"... belonging to the ego
eudokia... "delight, good will, good choice"
thura... "door"
nuni... "now, this moment"
so in greek we see gematria connections to nonduality, ether, psychology, agriculture... i forgot boulh, "counsel" will show in another epitaph of Kronos, Consus...
hebrew gematria 510 =
ShRI... "princess", name of Abraham's wife, Sarai, revealing also the matriarchical side, "daughter/consort of Saturn". A perhaps unexpected link is made between Saturn and Abraham, both father archetypes, and Sarai and Venus, Virgo, Kybele, Rhea, Demeter, Ops...

Thanks, it's a bit more clear to me now. In fact it actually gives me some good ideas in regards to alchemy art. Being used for both a symbol of freedom/liberty and a sleeping cap makes sense. I might have to shop around for one too.

both males and females representing earth, abundance, opulence (Ethiops), agriculture/grain, riches, wealth (ploutos)...
so Kybele, for instance, is associated with mountains and lions. This shows the meaning of the lion with serpent in mouth, serpent being male consort/Consus/Saturn/Cronus..
gematria 510 =
PLTh... "to flee, swiftness"
ThNIN... "dragon, serpent, whale, sea monster"
RISh... "poverty"
IShR... "uprightness", symbol of nitre
IThNN... "strong, permanent"

another epitaph of tartaros is hades which refers to a god as well as a place... in the greek spelling idas it translates "unseen" perhaps reminding one of Amun, the hidden god of the egyptians.

the descriptions are under the pics... interesting.
consider Mithras was born from a rock, naked wearing only a Phrygian cap.

hi Lunsola. :)
think i'm done for the moment. yeah, Fulcanelli mentions this cap specifically. Also the phonetic "galli" can be seen in relation to Attis and his castrated priests, Kronos castrating Ouranos with his sickle...
some other wearers of the cap were Midas whose touch turned to gold, also phonetic to Hades... and Paris. The cap also refers, besides being free, to coming from the east... thus sunrise, and roosters/gallos
