The Anunnaki 🌠
Today we will explore Mesopotamian mythology and more specifically the Anunnaki.
Who are they ?
The Anunnakis designate a group of gods from the Mesopotamian pantheon, and more precisely the most important deities of the latter.
According to several Babylonian texts, including the Enūma eliš (the epic of creation), the Anunnakis numbered 600 distributed between the sky and the underworld.
According to Mesopotamian mythology, it was this group of gods descended from the Heavens to Earth who created Man...
They would be descendants of the gods An and Ki , respectively the god of the sky and the goddess of the earth.
Enlil (found in the epic of Gilgamesh ) for example, and who is the head of the Mesopotamian pantheon and also the god of the wind, would thus be the oldest of the Anunnakis.
