Mesopotamian mythology

This wiki section is dedicated to Mesopotamian mythology. Its lore consists of the stories of the first large human civilization. Indeed, different cultures ruled over Mesopotamia as the years went by, including Sumerian, Akkadian, and Babylonian culture. Mesopotamian mythology is characterized by a complex pantheon of deities. Moreover, semi-divine Kings reigned over their people for multiple centuries, slaying mythical monsters when they had some spare time.

The geneology of the gods differs from story to story. Also, the names used for gods differ across different cultures. Also, there are many gaps in the stories due to the bad state of the clay tablets on which they were captured. In conclusion, we think the sum of these things make Mesopotamian mythology difficult to understand.
