ANUNNAKI
Also known as ANUNAKI, ANUNNAKU

Babylonian Team of Underworld Gods 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'.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Anunnaki graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Anunnaki movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Anunnaki statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Anunnaki. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
