I'm trying to follow your discussion, and will interject a question.
Is Puhvel's interpretation of Ymir and Yama as "Twin" accepted
generally (or by Cybalisters individually)? Is it's in fact Puhvel's
interpretation or common knowledge?
I did read a book a few years ago, specifically on the Roman myth
of Remus, that seemed to me to thoroughly refute Puhvel's twin
theory, at least as it applied to Remus. Sorry I don't remember the
details, or even the reference.
