The History of the Ancient Near East Electronic Compendium The Enuma Elish: The Babylonian Creation Myth Dennis Bratcher The Enuma Elish is a Babylonian or Mesopotamian myth of creation recounting the struggle between cosmic order and chaos. It is basically a myth of the cycle of seasons. It is named after its opening words and was recited on the fourth day of the ancient Babylonian New Year's festival. This version was written sometime in the 12th century BC in cuneiform on seven clay tablets. However, there are simply too many similarities to deny any relationship between the accounts. The version presented here is a combination of several translations but is substantially based on the translation of E. Tablet I The stage is set for the story. Before they had grown in age and stature, Anshar and Kishar were formed, surpassing the others. Thus were established and were... the great gods. "O Mummu, my vizier, who rejoices my spirit, Come here and let us go to Tiamat!" As soon as Tiamat heard this, She was furious and called out to her husband. "My little son, my little son!" Tablet II

Conway) (Greek lyric C5th B.C.) : "Does not even now great Atlas struggle to bear up the weight of heaven, far from his fathers’ land and his possessions? But almighty Zeus set free the Titanes for as time passes and the breeze abates, the sails are set anew." The Titans were an elder generation of gods who ruled the cosmos before the Olympians gods came to power. The eldest of the Titans--Cronos and his four brothers, Crius, Coeus, Hyperion and Iapetus--were imprisoned in the stormy pit of Tartarus by Zeus after he was victorious in the War. The female Titans or Titanides remained neutral in the War, and retained their positions as prophetic goddesses. ADANUS (Adanos) An alternate name for one of the elder Titan sons of Uranus. ANDES An alternate name for one of the elder Titan sons of Uranus. ANCHIALE (Ankhiale) A younger Titan goddess who perhaps represented the warmth of fire.
