“Regardless, I think it would be great if the original Sumerian versions refer to the Zagros mountains of Iran as this opens very interesting possibilities namely why the change from the Zagros being the "home of the gods" in the 3rd millennium (or earlier) to it at some point later being changed to Lebanon. Some interesting stuff in Iran.“

I suggested , originally, that some scholars might have thought that these tales were referring to the Zagros. I didn’t mean to suggest that the texts stated “the Zagros Mountains.”

I suggest to you that it is all a conjecture on our parts.

Now, here is an interesting suggestion: think about what might have changed in the ME berween 2,100 B.C. and 1,200 BC when the Epic of Gilgamesh was finalized? I suggest that when you understand this you will understand the shift from the “Home of the Gods” from the Zagros Mountains possibly to the Mountsins of Lebanon, possibly.
