King of Kish in Babylon.He rescued a sacred eagle from serpents after a request from SHAMASH. In gratitude the eagle offered to fly ETANA up to heaven for a consultation about heredity problems as he had not yet sired a son.
According to some reports the story ends here as the eagle crashed and they never made it. Yet further sifting through the Babylon Echo tabloids there is a mention in a birth column of a Son of Kish. So did the queen re-marry? Did SHAMASH intervene?
