Hi Thomas & T Bird,

T Bird stated :

"Her temple (Ninhursag), the Esagila (from Sumerian E (temple) + SAG (head) + ILA (lofty)) was located on the KUR of Eridu, although she also had a temple at Kish.

From "Hamlet's Mill" (211) :

"The "source" is as unrevealing as the "mouth" has been, and as every geographical localization is condemned to be Eridu, Sumerian mulNUNki is Canopus, alpha Carinae, the bright star near the South Pole, as has been established irrefragably by B. L. van der Waerden [n15 "The Thirty-six Stars," JNES 8 (1949), p. 14.

"The bright southern star Canopus was Ea's town Eridu (NUNki dE-a)."], ... and that, finally, made sense of the imposing configuration of myths around Canopus on the one hand, and of the preponderance of the "confluence of the rivers" on the other hand."


The djed pillar is often shown as a small easily handled object, but, originally this may not have been so. That pit at Zawiyet el-Aryan is enormous.



The following is the original of which I earlier posted a rubbing. It is from the tomb of Amenhopis III and has been defaced.




Part of the backbone? T Bird's comment about energy transference needs further exploration.
