The Tower

The Epic of Gilgamesh was found in the Royal Library in Nineveh.

Adapa, the first of the seven sages who were sent by Ea, the God of Wisdom, to serve as a priest to the king of Eridu, Alulim.  Uanna (or Uan) is a name used for Adapa in texts from the Library of Ashurbanipal, in Nineveh. Adapa is the story of the Fall of Man, which explains why man is mortal. When Anu offered Adapa everlasting life, on Ea's advice, he refused the gift.
