So what can we discern from the naming conventions? The source documents are ancient egyptian in origin- Thoth being the most known entity to the people who are the source of the alphabet. And its equally valued companion word Gotha is an Ethiopian settlement. We now know that H.P. Lovecraft was in posession of an egyptian document associated with Thoth from Gotha settlement in Ethiopia... at last we have found the source of the Necronomicon. An archeological dig near Gotha, Ethiopia.
