Similarities between Sumerian Anki and Vedic Agni by Jean-Yves Lung: On an Assyrian seal, we see the two liberations, of the waters and of the sun, closely associated as if in one event: the rising of the sun supported by the star goddess Ishtar (the morning star Venus) coincides with the joining of the waters from above with the waters from below, in the presence of two apkallu. Zie artikel https://auromere.wordpress.com/2010/11/11/similarities-between-sumerian-anki-and-vedic-agni-by-jean-yves-lung/ (zie hieronder).
We hebben in de vorige aflevering gezien, dat de apkallu nauw verbonden zijn met Enki, ook wel Ea, en met de apsû. Ik volg vanaf hier het artikel van Jean-Yves Lung over de overeenkomsten van de Soemerische Enki of Akkadische Ea met de Vedische Agni, dat aanvangt met een beschrijving van de iconografische representaties van Enki of Ea op de cylinderzegels van Mesopotamië.
Enki of Ea wordt de god van de ondergrondse Wateren genoemd. Hij schiep het mensenras om de goden te helpen kanalen te graven voor de bevrijding van de rivieren. Hij is middelaar tussen de goden en de mensen, meestal ten gunste van de laatsten. Als god van de zoete wateren is hij verbonden met de rivieren, die in zichzelf onderscheiding en oordeel hebben. Hij staat aan het begin van het stromen van de Tigris en Eufraat, geschapen door zijn vruchtbaarheid gevende kracht. Zijn verblijf is de Abzu of Apsû, het ondergrondse water. Als de god van kennis is hij de intelligentste en bekwaamste.
https://auromere.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/seals_1-1.jpg met de tekst: “Enki in his abode in the lower waters (Sumerian Abzu; Akkadian Apsû). He is represented here standing, ready to come out.”
https://auromere.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/seals_1-2.jpg met de tekst: “Enki releasing the waters: He has the power to release the waters, which on this seal represent the stream of knowledge and wisdom.”
https://auromere.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/seals_21.jpg met de tekst: “Enki and the fishes: Fishes are often represented swimming up the flow of waters that descend from Enki’s shoulders.On the left, the symbol of the sun is visible above two praying figures. A king with a scourge masters an enemy.”
https://auromere.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/seals_3.jpg met de tekst: “Enki’s assistants, the wise fish-men, Apkallu: The fish is also the symbol of Enki’s assistants, the seven Apkallu, sages and experts, “created in the river” (one of them is named “Utuabzu”, the Sun in or of the Abzu).”
https://auromere.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/seal_3_0.jpg met de tekst: “The Sun god in the Mountain: A god, (probably Shamash the Sun-god) lies helplessly inside the mountain. Another god awakes him, in the presence of the goddess Ishtar (right). Then, the god emerges mastering an animal (left).”
https://auromere.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/seals_4.jpg met de tekst: “The two liberations coincide: On an Assyrian seal, we see the two liberations, of the waters and of the sun, closely associated as if in one event: the rising of the sun supported by the star goddess Ishtar (the morning star Venus) coincides with the joining of the waters from above with the waters from below, in the presence of two apkallu.”
https://auromere.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/seals_5.jpg met de tekst: “Enki assisting the liberation of the Sun: On the seal of Adda, where the waters flow downward from his shoulders, with fishes swimming up the two streams, Enki is associated with the sun rising out of the twin mountains in the presence of Inanna/Ishtar (the morning star Venus) and another god.”
De bovenstaande cilinderzegels bevatten een algemene betekenis: we zien de bevrijding van de wateren en van de zon gevierd en onderling verbonden, met de godin Ishtar als een actief element, die hen mogelijk maakt; we zien de overwinning over de berg geassocieerd met hen, met de zonnegod erin opgesloten en eruit komend of erop stappend wanneer hij oprijst of de demon bevechtend die tegen de berg leunt; we zien Enki of Ea op de berg stappen om de oprijzende zon te helpen en we zien Enki gesymboliseerd bij een pilaar of een boom geworteld op de berg en opstijgend naar de oprijzende zon; we zien Enki als de berggeit op de berg stappen en klimmen op wat gewoonlijk ‘de levensboom’ wordt genoemd.
Vanuit de bovenstaande afbeeldingen kunnen we enige conclusies trekken ten aanzien van Enki’s rol als een god: eerst verblijvend in de lagere wateren neemt hij de beweging van een vis aan om de stroom op te zwemmen naar de oerbron; als een berggeit is hij dezelfde opklimmende kracht om de berg te beklimmen en de boom, op weg naar de bloemen ervan; als een gevleugelde berggeit heeft hij toegang tot de hemel zelf, waar de zon opkomt. Hij schijnt daarom de verborgen god te symboliseren die achtereenvolgens de wateren opwekt, dan de aarde en hemel, in een opstijgende beweging. In zijn volle ontwaken (wat verbonden schijnt met de bevrijding van de zon met dageraad), giet hij de wateren van bovenaf, waarvan de stromen samenvoegen met de wateren van beneden.

oimoi doy heeft dit bewaard op ANE: Egyptianized Near Eastern Hematite Cylinder Seal, Syria, 1820-1730 BC
In the area that corresponds roughly with the boundaries of modern Syria and Lebanon, there arose in the first half of the second millennium BC many centers of culture that maintained contact with lands both to the east and the west. The seals produced in this region – in a number of local styles – often bear imagery and stylistic features that relate them to Egyptian and Aegean art.
The main scene on this cylinder seal depicts a worshiper (probably the king) before a divinity, who holds a vase (?) and is seated above two human-headed bulls. The god is enthroned on a stool with lion legs of a type known from actual contemporary remains in wood and ivory from both Egypt and Anatolia. The smaller images include a sphinx wearing an Egyptian crown, attacking an antelope; an ankh, the Egyptian symbol for life; a winged solar disc representing Shamash over a recumbent crescent moon representing Sin; two eight pointed stars representing Ishtar; a kneeling bird-man under a plait-like motif which probably represents subterranean fresh water; a quadruped and a monkey are in front of the king, possibly as sacrificial offerings to the seated god. http://archaicwonder.tumblr.com/post/141450353566/egyptianized-near-eastern-hematite-cylinder-seal

http://www.ancientpages.com/2017/03/27/pre-flood-city-of-eridu-that-belonged-to-enki-god-of-creation-intelligence-wisdom-and-magic: Enki depicted on Adda Seal (c. 2300 BC), Image credit: British Museum – AncientPages.com – Modern city Abu Shahrain holds traces of one of the earliest and most sacred cities of the Sumerians – Eridu (E.RI.DU – ‘Home in the Faraway Built’).
“It was founded by and belonged to Enki, the mysterious god of the deep wisdom and magic. Enki was in charge of Earth prior to the arrival of his brother Enlil who is said to have brought civilization to Sumer at this point, or just shortly before. Also known as ‘Eridug’ (‘mighty place’ or ‘guidance place’), Eridu was located in the desert south of the Euphrates, only 12 km southwest from Ur. Today, it is only a group of hills, covered with sand accompanied by a badly preserved ziggurat built by son of Shulgi, Amar-Sin (‘immortal moon-god’) also known as Nanna, and the third king of the Ur Third Dynasty.”
Made of agate showing a centaur (possibly Pabilsag) with a bow and arrow attacking a winged-lion (possibly a gryphon) demon. In the field is a star, a crescent, a fish (below the centaur), and scattered globes. The borders have a scroll pattern with drillings.
The Babylonian god Pabilsag was the precursor to our Sagittarius, the Archer. The image of the horse-centaur can only be traced back to the middle of the 2nd millennium (Kassite period in Mesopotamia) however the figure is undoubtedly older since the constellation name appears in the star-lists of the preceding Old Babylonians. The Old Babylonian period Pabilsag was identified with the god Ninurta. Little else is known about him exept like Ninurta, he was a son of Enlil. The earliest evidence of his worship can be dated to the 3rd millennium BC. He was the patron deity of the ancient city of Larak, which has not been located yet, but is possibly in the vicinity of Isin (modern Ishan al-Bahriyat, Iraq).
The familiar image of the Greek constellation as a horse-centaur armed with a bow and arrow is actually a simplified version of the Babylonian figure, which has been portrayed in several forms and combinations. Sometimes it has a set of wings, a scorpion’s tail and the head of a dog. Babylonian mythology says that Pabilsag’s family were represented in the constellations as well. His wife, the healing goddess Ninisina or Gula has the dog as her divine symbol, which may explain why some images of Pabilsag have a dog’s head coming out of his shoulders. Other depictions omit the wings or dog’s head and replace its back legs with those of a bird, while some images look more like the Greek version of a centaur.

The Mysterious Bag/Satchel – Part 1
We see a similar hand held satchel or bag depicted in many cultures, from Gobekli Tepe to Mexico. There are many actual stone handled bag like artifacts that match what we see in relief carvings. What could these possibly be intended to represent? What was their purpose…or perhaps a better question, what was their function?

https://youtu.be/A4fXhEnL6s0 (6:33) ‘The Secret of the handbag in ancient stone carvings and statues – Ancient Knowledge?’ van UFO Today, gepubliceerd op 16 mrt. 2017 (147.139 views; 509 reacties). Tekst: ‘The goal of this video is to show how the handbag motive is present in several ancient cultures dating back as far as 10.000 years BC. I don’t have to answer to question what the symbol of the handbag means in all these cultures, but at the end of the video we’re going to explore a couple of theories. I’ll start with the pictures form ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, since these are the most know to most people. Mesopotamia was the historical area between the 2 rivers the Tigris and the Euphrates. It contained parts of Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Koeweit. This area is known as the cradle of civilization. To use a chronological order we’ll have to start with the recent archeological discovery of Gobekli Tepe which was excavated by a team of archeologist led by Klaus Schmidt in 1996. Gobekli Tepe is situated in Turkey and is believed to be an early Neolithic sanctuaries used as a holy site dating back as far as 10.000 BC. During the excavations this interesting stone carving was discovered. You can clearly see a stylized depiction of 3 handbags. That’s only the start for our handbag mystery throughout ancient times. The handbag is also connected to the history of the Annunaki, who represent a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamia. During the time of the Sumerians, the Phoenicians, Assyrians and the Etruscans the handbag motive is dominating stone carvings and statues as we can see from these examples. It’s interesting to note that the handbag was often shown in combination with the so called tree of life. The image of the tree of life can be found in many different civilizations and there is no consensus regarding it’s meaning. In most cases it represents interconnectedness of all sentient beings. They may give us a clue about the true meaning of the handbag motive. To my knowledge there are no stone carvings in ancient Egypt that depict people or deities carrying a handbag, but of course we all know the images of people carrying the Ankh. According to most Egyptologist the Ankh represents “life” and is often seen in the proximity of a diety. In most cases the diety will be carrying the Ankh. Is it possible that the Ankh represents the same symbol as the handbag in Mesopotamian cultures? Let’s cross the ocean to South America where the handbag motive is also very noticeable. At the archeological site La Venta in Mexico this interesting stone carving was found. It clearly shows us a man carrying a handbag that looks very familiar. How did this symbol crossed the ocean and why is it, again, depicted in so many important stone carvings and statues. Another example of the handbag can be found in Tula, another archeological site situated in Mexico that was developed during the times of the Toltecs after the fall of Teotihuacan. These statues depict ancient warrior and if we looks closely we see that they too are carrying the familiar handbag. In several Mexican museums you can find numerous other examples. Even in Indonesia we find ancient stone carvings with a stylized version of the handbag. So now we have established the fact that handbags are a very present motive in ancient art, but we haven’t answered the question on what this symbol means. To this day, there is no clear answer why ancient art put so much focus on this item. One theory suggests that the handbag is the tool used for gathering food (berries, small animals, eggs etc) and that’s the reason why it was so important to these cultures. There is no doubt that in ancient times people would have used handbags to gather food, but that does not explain why it was so prominently depicted in their art. Espially the carvings that show important deities and gods. My personal view on this symbol is linked to the ancient aliens theory. I noticed that this symbol was used in combination with the tree of life and the annunaki. I get the impression that handbag stands for the knowledge that the ancient gods were handing over to humanity. The myth of the gods coming down to earth and give their knowledge to mankind is as old as these carvings and can also be found across the earth. Think of the Annunaki, the Aztec stories of Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent, to name a few. There are many many more examples of these stories in which the gods share their knowledge with us. Could it be that the bag did actually contained certain technology that is still unknown to mankind?’

Tekst: ‘Browsing the internet and scanning YouTube, the subject of the Ancient #Sumerians is dominated by click-bate tales of #Anunnaki overlords, the so-called planet #Nibiru that we’re told is on its way back time and time again, but never materialises, the genetically-engineered human slave race that mined gold and many other interpretations that have been taken by so many to be real historical accounts of our ancient past. The popularisation of the Sumerian myths is based on translations of cuneiform tablets made by #ZechariaSitchin, and this has triggered a generation of ancient aliens theorists who have promoted the myth of overlord gods who from heaven to earth came. The foundation for the theory is Sitchin’s series of Earth Chronicles books where he talks of a group of mythical beings known as the Anunnaki, who he claimed crossed their own DNA with that of Homo erectus in order to create humankind. And the reason? To use humans as slaves to mine gold and other precious minerals to save their planet. And surprisingly, this is a narrative believed by so many.
