Any other mythical entities I should dredge up?

I want to make sure I've found data for everyone germane to the Utukki story. Admittedly, there are a few I haven't gotten around to yet (e.g. Anu), but I'd like to get a complete list for the next post...

So far, I've found data on the following (check one of my earliest posts, for those of you just comimg in):

--Apsu
--Tiamat
--Anshar
--Ishtar
--Namtar
--Ereshkigal
--Utukki (general; specifically Lamashtu and Ugallu)
--Anunnaki (general)
--Shedu
--Utnapishtim

Well, again, this information would fall into the category of spoilers. There will be other dieties showing up from time to time, but which ones is a surprise. Feel free to post whatever you'd like, although I must say two things:

1) For ever story in mythology, (especially Babylonian) there are several versions which often contradict each other.

2) The most useful thing you can post is probably links to pages where information can be found.

Also, thanks for making the effort. Doing research and finding out what the stories really are has been one of the funnest parts of working on this series, but if I post the parts that I've personally found most interesting, it really would be a spoiler. ^-^

There's a tale in that...

I've heard that originally, Indiana Jones WAS supposed to be in a swordfight with that scimitar-wielder. One thing, though. Ford was suffering from a fever or the like, and didn't have the energy for a sufficiently energetic battle. And the schedule...So they decided to clip it into scimitar vs. glorified sling (well, that's how I like to think of guns...).

Marduk of the 50 Names, slayer of Tiamat, keeper of Secrets, etc, etc


And hello all...yes I'm the husband of Ishtar: Goddess of Love, Fertility and War (of Furth). I'm the Demi-Lord of Neutrality in the Napping Cats Dream and of no relation to King Gilgamesh of Uruk...though on Furth, (an alternate furry world) he was named after me.


My wife got a new picture made, I'd like to show it off...shes so beautiful.
