Ea


Ea, Mesopotamian (Babylonian-Akkadian) [Iraq], was god of primordial waters in the Babylonian-Akkadian pantheon. He was worshipped from about 1900 BC to 200 BC. He evolved from the role of Enki. His consort was Damkina, and his temple is the Apsu house in Eridu (lost). In the neo-Babylonian period his position as a major deity decreased as he was relegated to being father of Marduk. A.G.H.
