In the Sons of Shem scheme, ELAM-ASSHUR, mainly representing the Assyrian
Empire, is an east-to-west sweep across the northern part of the fertile
crescent. ARPACHSHAD-LUD-ARAM could be a separate south-to-north progression
where Arpachshad is the wilderness beyond the southern end of the fertile
crescent, Lud is an alternative to Lot as the ancestor of the Ammonites and
Moabites east of the Jordan, to the west the people are classified under
Ham, and finally Aram is in southern Syria.
My question is this: Can Lud and Lot be seen as variations of the same name?
