Enlil

Enlil known as Elil, is an ancient Mesopotamian god associated with wind, air and storms. He is first attested as the chief deity of the Sumerian pantheon, but he was worshipped by the Akkadians, Babylonians and Hurrians. Enlil's primary center of worship was the Ekur temple in the city of Nippur, believed to have been built by Enlil himself and was regarded as the "mooring-rope" of heaven and earth, he is sometimes referred to in Sumerian texts as Nunamnir. According to one Sumerian hymn, Enlil himself was so holy that not the other gods could look upon him. Enlil rose to prominence during the twenty-fourth century BC with the rise of Nippur, his cult fell into decline after Nippur was sacked by the Elamites in 1230 BC and he was supplanted as the chief god of the Mesopotamian pantheon by the Babylonian national god Marduk. The Babylonian god Bel was a syncretic deity of Enlil and the shepherd deity Dumuzid. Enlil plays a vital role in the Sumerian creation myth. In the Sumerian flood myth, Enlil rewards Ziusudra with immortality for having survived the flood and, in the Babylonian flood myth, Enlil is the cause of the flood himself, having sent the flood to exterminate the human race, who made too much noise and prevented him from sleeping.

The myth of Enlil and Ninlil is about Enlil's serial seduction of the goddess Ninlil in various guises, resulting in the conception of the moon-god Nanna and the Underworld deities Nergal and Enbilulu. Enlil was regarded as the patron of agriculture. Enlil features prominently in several myths involving his son Ninurta, including Anzû and the Tablet of Destinies and Lugale. Enlil's name comes from ancient Sumerian EN, meaning "lord" and LÍL meaning "wind", his name therefore translates as "Lord Wind". Enlil's name is not a genitive construction, indicating that Enlil was seen as the personification of the wind itself rather than the cause of wind. Enlil was the patron god of the Sumerian city-state of Nippur and his main center of worship was the Ekur temple located there; the name of the temple means "Mountain House" in ancient Sumerian. The Ekur was believed to have been established by Enlil himself, it was believed to be the "mooring-rope" of heaven and earth, meaning that it was seen as "a channel of communication between earth and heaven".

A hymn written during the reign of Ur-Nammu, the founder of the Third Dynasty of Ur, describes the E-kur in great detail, stating that its gates were carved with scenes of Imdugud, a lesser deity sometimes shown as a giant bird, slaying a lion and an eagle snatching up a sinner. The Sumerians believed, they thought. As such, cult statues were given constant care and attention and a set of priests were assigned to tend to them. People worshipped Enlil by other human necessities to him; the food, ritually laid out before the god's cult statue in the form of a feast, was believed to be Enlil's daily meal, after the ritual, it would be distributed among his priests. These priests were responsible for changing the cult statue's clothing; the Sumerians envisioned Enlil as a benevolent, fatherly deity, who watches over humanity and cares for their well-being. One Sumerian hymn describes Enlil as so glorious that the other gods could not look upon him; the same hymn states that, without Enlil, civilization could not exist.

Enlil's epithets include titles such as "the Great Mountain" and "King of the Foreign Lands". Enlil is sometimes described as a "raging storm", a "wild bull", a "merchant"; the Mesopotamians envisioned him as a creator, a father, a king, the supreme lord of the universe. He was known as "Nunamnir" and is referred to in at least one text as the "East Wind and North Wind". Kings sought to emulate his example. Enlil was said to be intolerant towards evil. Rulers from all over Sumer would travel to Enlil's temple in Nippur to be legitimized, they would return Enlil's favor by precious objects to his temple as offerings. Nippur was the only Sumerian city-state. During the Babylonian Period, when Marduk had superseded Enlil as the supreme god, Babylonian kings still traveled to the holy city of Nippur to seek recognition of their right to rule. Enlil first rose to prominence during the twenty-fourth century BC, when the importance of the god An began to wane. During this time period, Enlil and An are invoked together in inscriptions.

Enlil remained the supreme god in Mesopotamia throughout the Amorite Period, with Amorite monarchs proclaiming Enlil as the source of their legitimacy. Enlil's importance began to wane after the Babylonian king Hammurabi conquered Sumer; the Babylonians worshipped Enlil under the name "Elil" and the Hurrians syncretized him with their own god Kumarbi. In one Hurrian ritual and Apantu are invoked as "the father and mother of Išḫara". Enlil is invoked alongside Ninlil as a member of "the mighty and established gods". During the Kassite Period, Nippur managed to regain influence in the region and Enlil rose to prominence once again. From around 1300 BC onwards, Enlil was syncretized with the Assyrian national god Aššur, the most important deity in the Assyrian pantheon. In 1230 BC, the Elamites attacked Nippur and the city fell int

Monoscutidae

The Monoscutidae are a family of harvestmen with 32 known species that all occur in or near Australia and New Zealand. Species range in body length from three to ten mm; the chelicerae are enormously enlarged in males of the subfamily Megalopsalidinae. Most species are coloured in shades of browns to black. Megalopsalis inconstans is jet black with bright orange patches on the carapace; the Monoscutidae are related to the Neopilionidae, which occur in the Southern hemisphere.
