ANUNNAKI

Mesopotamian Underworld Gods and Goddesses

Also known as ANUNAKI, ANUNNAKU

Babylonian team of Underworld Gods

They are mainly into darkness and death. The name means ‘They Who Came Down To Earth From The Heavens’, which seems appropriate enough for Gods.

Some people claim that Mesopotamian myth is a sign of Extraterrestrial Intervention and that the ANUNNAKI were really aliens meddling in human affairs. In which case the name should really be translated as ‘They Who Came Down To Earth From The Planet Zog’.
