I don't know if this picture will come across the server or not, but it
is a cylinder seal impression from Uruk (biblical Erech) dated at ca.
3000 BC. The dress is indicatve of kingship. His hair and beard show
he is Akkadian, not Sumerian. Now what Akkadian king would be riding
around in a boat loaded with crates and animals?

These posts have been fascinating. Thanks, Dick, Phil and George.

On another (but related) subject: can we devise a suitable flood
scenario? If the flood occurred in southern Mesopotamia as Dick's
scenario suggests, what do we do about the depth and duration of the
flood? Since the land is relatively flat in that region, the flood
cannot have been very deep, and by the same token cannnot have lasted
very long. Are we justified in concluded that the depth and duration of
the flood are exaggerations typical of ancient near east literature? Are
there other possible explanations? (I don't like Dick's view that Noah
and his sons poled the ark upstream to the mountains of Ararat.)
