Re: Go to any Sumerian exhibit

I am duly outraged that museum curators have become so incompetant as to place Grecian artifacts in Mesopotamian exhibits. You invite this kind of classificatory chaos, and the next thing you know irrelevant spam starts showing up in Sci-Fi/Fantasy forums.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Man, when it comes to early civilizations, the Sumerians were the WORST.

Grecian statues in Sumerian exhibits? Oh no! Won't somebody think of the children?

Re: Go to any Sumerian exhibit

Actually, I can kind of see being pissed off about this, unless there's actually a reason for Apollo to be in the Sumerian exhibit (e.g., it turns out Apollo was a Sumerian god adopted by the Greeks, although I don't think this is the case).

Re:

It's just possible.

In her book, Etruscan Myth, Sacred History, and Legend (2006), Nancy Thomson suggests the entymology of Apollo is from the Hittite diety Aplu, which in turn came from the Akkadian 'Aplu Enlil', meaning "son of Enlil" which was a title given to the god Nergal who in turn was linked to the Babylonian god of the sun, Shamash (i.e the Sumerian god Utu).

Beware of Sumerians bearing statues, I always say..
