Sunday feature writer for the sensationlistic Boston Pillar; sent to Cabot Museum to report on bodies from Chateau Faussesflammes, wrote about T'yog mummy instead. Rushed to Widener Library for a sight of the Necronomicon. HPL Aeons 269, (270).


An alien being that came from Yuggoth, where the cities are under the warm deep sea [HPL Museum 236]. It came to Earth and lived in an Arctic city three million years ago [240], before Lomar and before humanity, when the climate was warm. The ruins are in Alaska, up the Noatak river from Fort Morton. Rhan-Tegoth was resting dormant there on a carved ivory throne until George Rogers and Orabona brought it to London. [221]

Rhan-Tegoth is of great size, fully ten feet high even when crouching [240]. It has six sinuous limbs ending in black paws with crab-like claws, and a round head with three eyes, and foot-long proboscis. Its body is almost entirely covered with a dense growth of slender tentacles, each ending in an asp-like mouth. The longest tentacles are on the head and below the proboscis, where they are marked with spiral stripes. [224-225, 240] It is amphibious [236], with a system of gills on its head [224]. Rogers kept it in a tank of liquid [236]. It made a baying or trumpeting noise, and had a horrible smell [237]

Rhan-Tegoth featured in certain obscure legends that Rogers had studied [239]. Rogers awakened it with rites and blood sacrifices, including a dog [221-223]. Rhan-Tegoth's victims are crushed and flattened, seared as if with acid, and covered with innumerable circular wounds [223, 240, 241]. Rogers regarded it a god, with himself to be the first priest of its latter-day hierarchy [222, 225]. Rogers expected that it would grant him power in exchange for his sacrifices [232]. Rogers was also afraid that Rhan-Tegoth would die if he did not continue to feed it, and believed that if it dies, the Old Ones can never come back. It is not clear which "Old Ones" are referred to here. However, the grouping may include Cthulhu [235] and Shub-Niggurath [225], who were mentioned in Roger's rantings.

Rogers believed that Rhan-Tegoth could not be affected by human protections such as pistols [223]. However, after Rogers' death, Orabona somehow killed or otherwise neutralized Rhan-Tegoth. Orabona put the creature on display as a supposed waxwork. However, the authorities considered it too shocking and forced Orabona to stop displaying it. [239]

R'lyeh Text

An esoteric text touching on the cult of Cthulhu.


The R'lyeh Text includes hints that seem to indicate that the time for the resurgence of Cthulhu is drawing near [AWD Curwen 20].

Prof. Laban Shrewsbury's Cthulhu in the Necronomicon includes this quote from the R'lyeh Text : "Great Cthulhu shall rise from R'lyeh, Hastur the Unspeakable shall return from the dark star which is in the Hyades near Aldebaran . . . Nyarlathotep shall howl forever in the darkness where he abideth, Shub Niggurath shall spawn his thousand young . . ." [AWD Sky 59]

The R'lyeh Text includes the phrase Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah' nagl fhtagn , which was translated by H. P. Lovecraft in The Call of Cthulhu as "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming" [AWD Hastur 13-14].

The Cthulhu Mythos sprang from old books including the R'lyeh Text [AWD Island 180].


Amos Tuttle's copy was bound in human skin [AWD Hastur 10].

Copies and Modern Readers

Haddon found a copy among the books of Amos Tuttle, which was later consulted by Paul Tuttle [AWD Hastur 2]. Paul Tuttle donated the copy to Miskatonic University [25, 29].

David, a librarian at Miskatonic University, delved into the R'lyeh Text [AWD Sandwin 101, 105].

Tony Alwyn, a librarian at Miskatonic University, knew something of the weird knowledge hidden in the Book of Eibon [AWD Beyond2 164, 172].

Laban Shrewsbury spoke to Andrew Phelan and Nayland Column of various esoteric texts, including the R'lyeh Text [AWD Curwen 20; Keeper 141]. Claiborne Boyd found passages from the R'lyeh Text among the papers of Asaph Gilman [AWD Gorge 109]. Abel Keane read of the R'lyeh Text in Shrewsbury's Cthulhu in the Necronomicon [AWD Sky 59].

Prof.Upton Gardner had photostatic copies of pages from the R'lyeh Text [AWD Dweller 126].

The Gable Window narrator found a copy in the house of his late cousin, Wilbur Akeley [AWD Gable 206].

Winfield Phillips borrowed either an original copy or a photostat of R'lyeh Text from Prof. Seneca Lapham. It probably was borrowed or copied from the Miskatonic University library. [AWD Lurker 134]
