Enki the Anunnaki god of the Abyss

Ea/Enki the Anunnaki god of the Abyss, was the third of the great Babylonian triad of gods, which consisted of Anu, En-lil, and himself. This documentary looks at the bigger picture concerning the mysterious Anunnaki gods of ancient Mesopotamia. Ea/Enki was a god of the waters, and like Anu is called the ‘ father of the Anunnaki gods.’ As a god of the Abyss he appears to have been also a deity of wisdom and occult power, thus allegorically associated with the idea of depth or profundity. He was the father of Merodach/Marduk, who consulted him on the most important matters connected with his kingship of the gods. Lord Ea/Enki was consulted by individuals of all classes who desired his light to be thrown upon their crafts or businesses. He was the god of artisans in general—blacksmiths, stone-cutters, sailors, and artificers of every kind. He was also the patron of prophets and seers. As the abyss is the place where the seeds of everything were supposed to originate, so he appears to have fostered reproduction of every description. Ea/Enki was supposed to dwell beside Anu, who inhabited the pole of the ecliptic. The site of his chief temple was at Eridu, which at one time stood, before the waters receded, upon the shore of the Persian Gulf. We have seen already that Ea/Enki, under his Greek name of Oannes, was supposed to bring knowledge and culture to the people of Eridu. There are many confusing myths connected with him, and he seems in some measure to enter into the Babylonian myth of the deluge. The chief extract from the fragments of Berossus concerning Oannes states that: “In the first year there made its appearance from a part of the Eruthrean sea, which bordered upon Babylonia, an animal endowed with reason, who was called Oannes.” According to the accounts of Apollodorus the whole body of the animal was like that of a fish and had under a fish’s head another head, and also feet below, similar to those of a man, joined to the fish’s tail. His speech, too, was articulate and human and there was a representation of him to be seen in the time of Berossus. After this there appeared other creatures like Oannes/Enki, of which Berossus promises to give an account when he comes to the history of the kings. He is thus very different from the god En-lil, the ‘ lord of heaven ’ who possesses so many attributes of destruction. Ea/Enki in his benevolent way thwarts the purpose of the riotous god of tempest, which greatly enrages En-lil, the two religious centres of Eridu and Nippur, were the cities of Ea and En-lil respectively. He was also called En-ki, which describes him as ‘ lord of the earth ’ through which his waters zig zagged. the wave-form-serpent-fish god.In such a country as Babylonia earth and water are closely associated, as under that soil water is always to be found at a distance of a few feet: thus the interior of the earth is the domain of Ea.
