I find it interesting that Enki's symbol is that of a snake which denotes health and wisdom. "Enki whose name in Sumerian means 'lord of the earth', though in fact, he was t he 'god of the sweet waters'. He was also the chief god of the city of Eridu and the god of wisdom and magic." - Michael Roaf, Cultural Atlas of Mesopotamia "Enki is usually pictured with two streams, the Euphrates and the Tigris, flowin g out of his shoulders or from a vase he holds. Frequently fish are swimming in these streams." "His name Enki (i.e., en-ki), 'Lord (i.e., productive manager) of the soil', ref lects the role of water in fructifying the earth....The power in water that make s the soil produce was thought to be of a kind with the engendering power in mal e semen. Sumerian does not differentiate semen and water; one word stands for bo th.

He is a god of water, creation, and fertility. He also holds dominion over the land. He is the keeper of the me, the divine laws." - Christopher Siren, "Sumerian Mythology FAQ" (Version 1.5html) "In art Enki is represented as a seated god with long beard, wearing a cap with many horns and a long, pleated robe. Streams of water flow from his arms to the ground, sometimes with little fish swimming along the flow." "Enki was god of the subterranean freshwater ocean (abju), and was especially as sociated with wisdom, magic and incantations, and with the arts and crafts of ci vilization." - Black and Green, Gods, Demons and Symbols of Ancient Mesopotamia

Near Eastern Mythology ." ."The god Enki. was also considered the supreme god of w isdom and magic. doubtless owing to the subtle pervasiveness of water both above and below the earth and to the vital part it plays in engendering life and thus making possible the development of vegetation and communications by the skill o f man. or Ea. the god of water.
