Nammu and Enki

I am going to begin doing the God and Goddess of the week. I will start with the Sumerian Pantheon since that is where Rain Dove left off.

Nammu is the goddess of the primordial ocean. She is the mother who gave birth to heaven and earth. She is the Creator of all things. She is also called Namma, Mother of Everything, Mother who gave birth to Heaven and Earth and Primordial Mother.

Enki is the lord of the abyss, the earth and the underworld. He is the god of water, creation, fertility, wisdom and magic as well as the lord of the Apsu, the sosmic sweet waters under the earth.

From the Farrar's The Witch's Goddess and Peter Clayton's Great Figures of Mythology
