Eridu (Cuneiform: NUN.KI; Sumerian: eriduki; Akkadian: irîtu modern Arabic: Tell Abu Shahrain) is an archaeological site in southern Mesopotamia (modern Dhi Qar Governorate, Iraq).. Eridu was long considered the earliest city in southern Mesopotamia and is still today argued to be the oldest city in the world..Located 12 km southwest of Ur, Eridu was the southernmost of a conglomeration of Sumerian cities that grew about temples, almost in sight of one another..In Sumerian mythology, Eridu was originally the home of Enki, later known by the Akkadians as Ea, who was considered to have founded the city.. His temple was called E-Abzu, as Enki was believed to live in Abzu, an aquifer from which all life was believed to stem...

The site at Tel abu Shahrain, near Basra, was initially excavated by John George Taylor in 1855, R. Campbell Thompson in 1918, and H.R. Hall in 1919.. Excavation there resumed from 1946 to 1949 under Fuad Safar and Seton Lloyd of the Iraqi Directorate General of Antiquities and Heritage..These archaeological investigations showed that, according to Oppenheim, "eventually the entire south lapsed into stagnation, abandoning the political initiative to the rulers of the northern cities," and the city was abandoned in 600 BC..Eridu, also transliterated as Eridug, could mean "mighty place" or "guidance place"..In the Sumerian king list, Eridu is named as the city of the first kings.. The king list continues..In Eridu, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years.. Alalngar ruled for 36000 years.. 2 kings; they ruled for 64800 years.. Then Eridu fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira...


The Land of the Gods in the ancient world from where the Aryan and reptile-Aryan bloodstreams emerged in the Caucasus Mountains, Sumer; Babylon, and Egypt...

Bad-tibira, "Wall of the Copper Worker(s)", or "Fortress of the Smiths", identified as modern Tell al-Madineh, between Ash Shatrah and Tell as-Senkereh (ancient Larsa) in southern Iraq, was an ancient Sumerian city, which appears among antediluvian cities in the Sumerian King List.. Its Akkadian name was Dûr-gurgurri.. It was also called Παντιβίβλος (Pantibiblos) by Greek authors such as Abydenus, Apollodorus of Athens and Berossus.. This may reflect anot her version of the city's name, Patibira, "Canal of the Smiths"...

According to the Sumerian King List, Bad-tibira was the second city to "exercise kingship" in Sumer before the flood, following Eridu.. These kings were said to be En-men-lu-ana, En-men-gal-ana and Dumuzid the Shepherd..The early Sumerian text Inanna's descent to the netherworld mentions the city's temple, E-mush-kalamma.. In this tale, Inanna dissuades demons from the netherworld from taking Lulal, patron of Bad-tibira, who was living in squalor.. They eventually take Dumuzid, who lived in palatial opulence at Uruk..This Dumuzid is called "the Shepherd", who on the King List resides at Bad-Tibira in contrast to the post-diluvian Dumuzid, the Fisherman, who reigns in Uruk...

As the flood waters receded after theVenus cataclysm the survivors came down from the mountains and up from within the Earth.. They settled on the lowlands and plains and began to rebuild.. This was when Sumer, Egypt and the civilization in the Indus Valley suddenly appeared at a very high level of technological advancement, although they had existed before and were now restored after the upheavals..


The Great Sphinx partly under the sand..

The "brotherhood text" in cuneiform inscriptions on cones plundered from the site in the 1930s records the friendship pact of Entemena, governor of Lagash, and Lugal-kinishedudu, governor of Uruk.. It identifies Entemena as the builder of the temple E-mush to Inanna and Dumuzid, under his local epithet Lugal-E-mush..Some badly effaced half-bricks on the surface of the mound bore the inscription of Amar-Sin, of the Third Dynasty of Ur.. Pieces of vitrified brick scattered over the surface of the large mound bore witness to the city's destruction by fire..Possession of the city passed between Larsa, whose king Sin-Iddinam claims to have built the great wall of Bad-tibira, and Isin, whose king Lipit-Ishtar, "the shepherd of Nippur", claimed to have built the "House of Righteousness" there..

The king list gave particularly long rules to the kings who ruled before a great flood occurred, and shows how the center of power progressively moved from the south to the north of the country. Adapa, a man of Eridu, is depicted as an early culture hero. .Identified with U-an, a half-human creature from the sea (Abgallu, from ab=water, gal=big, lu=man), he was considered to have brought civilization to the city during the time of King Alulim was the first king of Eridu, and the first king of Sumer, according to the mythological antediluvian section of the Sumerian King List..Enki, the god of Eridu, is said to have brought civilization to Sumer at this point, or just shortly before..Significantly it was from this same region that all the world’s major religions emerged and this is no accident.. In earlier times, the civilizations of Sumer, Babylon and Assyria were in the general area of what we call Iraq, while Turkey was previously known as Asia Minor and Persia..

"After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug (Eridu).. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28,800 years"...

In a chart of antediluvian generations in Babylonian and Biblical traditions, Professor William Wolfgang Hallo associates Alulim with the composite half-man, half-fish counselor or culture hero (Apkallu) Uanna-Adapa (Oannes), and suggests an equivalence between Alulim and Enosh in the Sethite genealogy given in Genesis chapter 5.. Hallo notes that Alulim's name means "Stag"...
