Babylonian king of the earliest Kish dynasty who subsequently became a god. He became merged with Etana, the hero of an early myth, who was taken to heaven on the back of an eagle to obtain a herb needed for the safe birth of his son. Etana reached the dwelling of Anu, but failed to reach that of Ishtar, which was higher, and fell to earth. The end of the story is lost, but Etana appears to have survived, as he was mentioned in the Gilgamesh epic.
