If at the time of Hammurabi the rings had already been split up, as we were told, and Hammurabi was trying to discover their hidden power, then it is fair to assume that the rings pre-date hammurabi considerably.
Add to this the recent clues regarding the groups in the hunt and the Sumerian proverb,
" (1) Whoever walks with the truth shall generate life (1) "
and I feel it also fair to conclude that the rings are derived from the time of the Sumerians. Why? the sumerians were acredited with being the first
people to express themselves in writing, or cuniform. They also pre-dated Hammurabi.
Therefore it is resonable to assume that the words of power are in Sumerian.
Interstingly, the Sumerians had multiple levels of Gods.
At the highest level were a group of FOUR.
Beneath them were a second group known as The Gods Of the Underworld there were SEVEN in this group.
Both numbers are relevant to this hunt.
Could the most powerful thing in the Sumerian times have been their four main gods.
Incidently Enki is credited with being the god of creation and fertility.
(1) Whoever walks with the truth shall generate life (1)
