He took the throne in c. He co-ruled with a Lady of Tikal. He took the throne on c. This seems also implicated in the epic of the hieros gamos or sacred marriage of Enki and Ninhursag above , which seems an etiological myth of the fertilisation of the dry ground by the coming of irrigation water from Sumerian a , ab , water or semen. The early inscriptions of Urukagina in fact go so far as to suggest that the divine pair, Enki and Ninki, were the progenitors of seven pairs of gods, including Enki as god of Eridu , Enlil of Nippur , and Su'en or Sin of Ur , and were themselves the children of An sky, heaven and Ki earth.
The Water Lord
It is believed to remain today as the sacred pool at Mosques , or as the holy water font in Catholic or Eastern Orthodox churches. Whether Eridu at one time also played an important political role in Sumerian affairs is not certain, though not improbable. At all events the prominence of "Ea" led, as in the case of Nippur, to the survival of Eridu as a sacred city, long after it had ceased to have any significance as a political center. Myths in which Ea figures prominently have been found in Assurbanipal 's library, and in the Hattusas archive in Hittite Anatolia.
He is also found in Hurrian and Hittite mythology as a god of contracts, and is particularly favourable to humankind. He was also the creator and protector of man, and of the world in general. Traces of this version of Ea appear in the Marduk epic celebrating the achievements of this god and the close connection between the Ea cult at Eridu and that of Marduk.
The correlation between the two rises from two other important connections: 1 that the name of Marduk's sanctuary at Babylon bears the same name, Esaggila , as that of a temple in Eridu, and 2 that Marduk is generally termed the son of Ea, who derives his powers from the voluntary abdication of the father in favour of his son. Accordingly, the incantations originally composed for the Ea cult were re-edited by the priests of Babylon and adapted to the worship of Marduk , and, similarly, the hymns to Marduk betray traces of the transfer to Marduk of attributes which originally belonged to Ea.
It is, however, as the third figure in the triad the two other members of which were Anu and Enlil that Ea acquires his permanent place in the pantheon. To him was assigned the control of the watery element, and in this capacity he becomes the shar apsi ; i.
The Apsu was figured as the abyss of water beneath the earth, and since the gathering place of the dead, known as Aralu, was situated near the confines of the Apsu, he was also designated as En -Ki ; i. The cult of Ea extended throughout Babylonia and Assyria. We find temples and shrines erected in his honour, e.
The consort of Ea, known as Ninhursag, Ki, Uriash Damkina , "lady of that which is below", or Damgalnunna , "big lady of the waters", originally was fully equal with Ea, but in more patriarchal Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian times plays a part merely in association with her lord. Generally, however, Enki seems to be a reflection of pre-patriarchal times, in which relations between the sexes were characterised by a situation of greater gender equality.

In his character, he prefers persuasion to conflict, which he seeks to avoid if possible. In , a team of Italian archaeologists under the direction of Paolo Matthiae of the University of Rome La Sapienza performed a series of excavations of material from the third-millennium BCE city of Ebla. Much of the written material found in these digs was later translated by Giovanni Pettinato. Among other conclusions, he found a tendency among the inhabitants of Ebla , after the reign of Sargon of Akkad , to replace the name of El , king of the gods of the Canaanite pantheon found in names such as Mikael and Ishmael , with Ia Mikaia, Ishmaia.
Some scholars remain skeptical of the theory while explaining how it might have been misinterpreted.
