He has essayed the first edition of an
enigmatic fragment from pre-Sargonic Lagas
variously described as a hymn to Sun or a lamen-
tation over the destruction of Lagas but which
is in fact one of the oldest pieces of Sumerian
mythology, if not the oldest, yet known.
Paraphrasing his translation, we read:
The reptiles verily descend
The earth verily makes its ... (breast?) appear
It is the garden, it is the foundation-terrace
(Which) the earth-hole for its part fills with
An (Heaven) is the lord, he is stationed like a
Heaven and Earth cry out together
At that time Enki and Eridu had not appeared
Enlil did not exist
Ninlil did not exist
Brightness was dust
Vegetation was dust
The daylight did not shine
The moonlight did not emerge.

This is a question rather than a discussion...I wouldn't bother posting if I hadn't exhausted my own searching. I am wondering if anyone here has come across this apparant excerpt in any translation of the sumerian tablets....it does not come from Sitchin, who does not subscribe to the view of the Annunaki being reptilian.
According to page 61 of the book FLYING SERPENTS AND DRAGONS by the late R A BOULAY...one of the oldest fragments from the sumerian tablets says :
"The reptiles verily descend. The earth is resplendent as a
well-watered garden. At that time Enki and Eridu had not appeared.
Daylight did not shine, moonlight had not emerged."
When I google line one the only references that appear are quoting Boulay. There was mention of it by David Icke in Tales from the Time Loop but he was just quoting Boulay too. Boulay never provides a source for this excerpt so I've no idea what tablet it is on or indeed if it is even there for real .
Can anyone help as this is such a tantalizing bit of information and it's really frustrating not knowing if it appears for real in any sumerian tablet.
