It should also make you question the translation, and why there is a question mark after Pelican. The sign translated thus is U5. example of usage';

he placed the holy pelican (?), the standard of Nanše

u5 kug šu-nir dnanše-kam

Possible interpretations of U5;


U5: n., male bird, cock; totality; earth pile or levee; raised area v., to mount (in intercourse); to be on top of; to ride; to board (a boat); to steer, conduct. adj., (raised) high, especially land or ground


Early cuneiform signs

The U5 bird also related to Enki father of Nanse in the context of a constellation.


The lord established a shrine, a holy shrine, whose interior is elaborately constructed. He established a shrine in the sea, a holy shrine, whose interior is elaborately constructed. The shrine, whose interior is a tangled thread, is beyond understanding. The shrine's emplacement is situated by the constellation the Field, the holy upper shrine's emplacement faces towards the Chariot constellation. Its terrifying sea is a rising wave, its splendour is fearsome. The Anuna gods dare not approach it. …… to refresh their hearts, the palace rejoices. The Anuna stand by with prayers and supplications. They set up a great altar for Enki in the E-engura, for the lord ……. The great prince ……. …… the pelican of the sea..

You tell a bed time story with a lot of missing words and lines?

Don't you think Lilith is a bit too old for bed time stories?



Anyway, you seem to have deep interest in ancient Babylonian/Sumerian text. Do you mind if I ask you why?
