He carved on a stone stela all of his toils,
and built the wall of Uruk-Haven,
the wall of the sacred Eanna Temple, the holy sanctuary. ~ Epic of Gilgamesh

Quotes[edit]

  • He carved on a stone stela all of his toils,
    and built the wall of Uruk-Haven,
    the wall of the sacred Eanna Temple, the holy sanctuary.
  • She had captured E-ana from [[Anu|]An]! She secured it. [...] Now Inana speaks of the E-ana as the house that is the place of the lady. The goddess who has attained her triumphant position, Inana who has attained her triumphant position, declares in the good place: "I have captured E-ana from An." Because you are unmatched among the Great Princes, maiden Inana, praising you is magnificent!
