Again, what about Oannes and the Dogan.
It's just strange that with entire cultures undiscovered due to our incomplete knowledge of history. There is an account of a creature that can
only be called an alien, teaching mankind civilization in one of the main places where civilization started.

human voice, and an image of him is preserved unto this day. He passed the day in the midst of men without taking food; he taught them the use of
letters, sciences and arts of all kinds. He taught them to construct cities, to found temples, to compile laws, and explained to them the principles
of geometrical knowledge. He made them distinguish the seeds of the earth, and showed them how to collect the fruits; in short he instructed them in
everything which could tend to soften human manners and humanize their laws. From that time nothing material has been added by way of improvement to
his instructions. And when the sun set, this being Oannes, retired again into the sea, for he was amphibious. After this there appeared other animals
