Unique list of Sumerian gods, c. 2400-2200 BC, Sumer
In Sumerian cuneiform on clay, a list of Sumerian gods in order of seniority and importance: Enlil, Ninlil, Enki, Nergal, Hendursanga, Inanna-Zabalam, Ninebgal, Inanna, Utu and Nanna.
No other copy of this particular list is so far known. Sumerians, Babylonians and Assyrians had thousands of gods so they needed extensive lists to keep track of them. Visit this page for a cool guide to Mesopotamian deities.
Sumer was located in southern Mesopotamia, modern-day southern Iraq, during the Chalcolithic and Early Bronze Age.
