Anunnaki Gods Of Ancient Greece
Its universally acknowledged that classical Greek Civilization was influenced by earlier Civilizations. Amongst these earlier Civilizations, Ancient Egypt is recognised as a direct influence.
However, Ancient Egypt itself was a product of earlier Civilizations, and its own culture reflected that of the Civilizations that preceded it.
For this reason, its possible that the Greek Pantheon Of Gods was in reality a Pantheon of earlier more Ancient Gods dating back first to Ancient Egypt and all the way back to the Oldest Civilization in Ancient Sumer.
Similarities in the legends and attributes of certain Greek Gods with earlier Egyptian and Sumerian counterparts may suggest that the Gods of the Greek Pantheon were in reality the Anunnaki Gods of the Olden Times.
Cronos: Supreme God
Cronos was the King and leader in the fight against the Olympian Gods.
Cronos seems to compare well with the Mesopotamian God An or Anu who belongs to the oldest generation of Gods and was originally the supreme deity of the Babylonian Pantheon.
Prometheus: Mankind’s Friend
Prometheus’ primary affection was for man and he disobeyed Zeus when he brought the gift of fire back to mankind against Zeus’ wishes.
This legend has important parallels to Mesopotamian legend specifically the legend of the God Enki who rebelled against the supreme God Enlil by creating mankind and warning him of the great flood.
In addition, Enki’s assosciation with water and fertility also renders him similar to the Greek God Poisedon.
This may laso mean that the attributes of particular Sumerian Gods may have been shared by more than one Greek God.
Zeus: God Of Storms
Zeus also known as Jupiter was the God of the sky and ruler of the Olympian Gods.
As a storm God and ruler of the other Gods, the Anunnaki God Enlil seems to be a match for Zeus.
Enlil like Zeus was also a punishing storm God and the most powerful of the Mesopotamian Gods placed in charge of Earth Command by his Father Anu.
Aphrodite: Goddess Of Beauty
Aphrodite also known as Venus is the daughter of Zeus.
She is the Goddess of beauty and sexual attraction, closely resembling the Sumerian God Ishtar also known as an Inanna the Babylonian Goddess of fertility and warfare.
Apollo: God of The Sun
Apollo is the son of Zeus associated with the Sun, justice, morality and truth.
Shamash also known as Utu is Apollo’s most likely Sumerian counterpart.
He is often pictured with a disc that symbolized the Sun like Apollo.
Ningshzida also known as the Egyptian Thoth has long been associated with Hermes.
In his Egyptian role as Thoth, Hermes was Chief Scientist who measured the earth, and was appointed the Guardian of the secrets of the Great Pyramids of Giza.
He is also resposible for placing Horus, the Son of Isis and Osiris, on the Egyptian Throne in the Era Of The Olden Gods Of Egypt, and its also been suggested that he may be the early Mesoamerican God Quetzalcoatl.
Hades: Lord Of The Underworld
Last but not least is Hades, Lord of the Underworld, the unseen realm to which the Souls of the dead go upon leaving the world.
Hades’ most likely Sumerian counterpart is Nergal the deity who presided over the netherworld and who stood at the head of the special Pantheon assigned to the Government of the dead.
In the final analysis, these comparisons are not conclusive, nevertheless, they can help explain why Ancient Greek Gods possessed the same qualities as Ancient Sumerian Gods even though they had a different Greek name.
In addition, a clue to the Anunnaki connection to Ancient Greece may lie in the legend of Alexander The Great who claimed to be a demi-God.
Such a claim in the Ancient world would have been understood in reference to the Ancient Gods of Sumer like Gilgamesh of Uruk, the first of the Demi-Gods whose divine right to rule mankind was by virtue of the fact that the blood of the Gods flowed in their veins.
