Something we don’t hear much about unless it’s a biblical, is the culture of Babylon. One very important Babylonian God was Zu, or, to the Persians, Anzu. In ancient Babylon, Zu, would have been honored today.
Born of the Goddess Siris, Zu was actually drawn to look like the mythological creature, the Griffin. He could breathe fire and water but was unfortunately destroyed by the hands of Lugalbanda,
Still, he would forever go down in history as being the one who stole The Tablets of Destiny from another god named Enlil. The Tablets of Destiny were believed to have been written by the Elder Gods.
