There are a number of Sumerian seals that some researchers claim to relate to the Anunnaki, who came from the heaven to create man, and enslaved man to work in the mines. Although this is the opinion of these researchers the Sumerian seals they cite as evidence for this enslavement relate to the simple worship of the gods by the Sumerians. These seals were probably talisman meant to encourage the Sumerian people to reflect on their gods and do good.
In the above figure we see a number of signs . There are three figures. A number of signs are associated with the figures. The figures at the end of the seals have their hands made in the shape of the tu sign, and read i tu, “Send forth the libation”. The middle figure’s hand is shaped in sign of the i ta, and reads Send forth (his/the) Touch”.
Lets read the seal from right to left. Sings to the far right of the seal reads: Me mi mi I i-ta mi ge i u u mi gu lu a a i-me, or “The diviner has much power from the diety to send forth. Send forth the character of the Diviner. Act to send forth amazement to nourish the oracle and sustain man. The strong Father sends forth the oracle.
After these signs we see the god (maybe Enlil) whose hand pointing skyward reads i tu ‘send forth the libation”. The other hand carries a beaded necklace. Below the necklace we see a figure seated on a throne on the back of an animal.
Next we see figure that resembles an arrow or spear seated on a base. This spear or arrow figure is made up of a number of signs. They read Pa ta u “Reveal the character of a powerful man”.
On the left side of the spear/arrow figure we see a number of sings beginning with a wave (zi ) like sign slightly above the head of the god. The wavy sign is zi and reads righteousness or ‘breath of life’.
The god’s hand points at the top of the spear. The other hand is changed in the i ta signs=Send forth (his/ the) touch”. Below this hand we see two columns of signs. There are three signs to the right Su a-i u and reads “Wisdom sprouts from the Father/Leader and amazement”.
There are five signs on the left side under the hand. They read Mi mi ta be ta, and reads “The phenomenal oracle to open up speech and entrust benefit ( for MAN/YOU)”.
Above the wazy line we see a figure that has a u symbol, above a circle between two boxes or logs, with a fan under the circular figure. The u symbol equals u, the box figures read bu mesh, the circle sign = ta and the fan below the circle is pa. This figure reads U bu mesh ta bu mesh pa, “The Powerful man supports the character of a super perfect Diviner and leader”.
It is important to note that when a sign is doubled, this represents reduplication or plural nature of the signs.
There are Proto-Sumerian signs behind the middle god, between the god at the far left of the seal. The First sign is a half-moon which reads u or “Gaze (at)”. The rest of signs reading from top to bottom are lu mi ta mi ta gun a lu mi mi i be. Tu mi i. This passage reads “ Gaze (at) the man of power. Open up the divine decree. Entrust benefit to human beings. Distribute the oracle’s divine decree to witness speech. Go forth to make a libation (at the ) oracle.
This seal is also relating to offering libation to the gods at an oracle. This oracle appears to speak to the supplicants.
In the above image we see the Sumerian sign of kingship which is represented by the figure which is star shaped and includes sixteen points. The dot reads li, and the line is i. In Sumerian li i “To become visible/shine”.
Next we see two gods. On the left we see a humano-fish figure. This god may represent the god Ea who was like a fish and is suppose to be the creator of man. The other god may be Enlil. The hands of the gods pointing to the log represent the signs, i ta, and reads “Send forth his Touch”.
Between the gods and above them we see a log shaped figure with a a number of lines. On the right hand side of the log we see two signs: a hook with a line under it. The hook is probably the u sign, the line is read i. The two signs would read u i, , “Witness amazement”.
In the Center of the log we see a dot (li), a half circle (a) under the dot and a fan like symbol (pa). Under the fan is a large half circle (a).These symbols read Li a pa A, or “Become visible a strong leader. The Father”.
At the end of log on the left hand side we see three signs a vertical line (i), with two horizontal lines (gu) between it and another vertical line. These signs read i gu i or “Become a visible witness to benefit man”.
Under the a sign, in the center of the seal we see a figure surrounded by the dot line symbol = li i ‘ Become visible”. The next sign is the u, “Powerful/Nourish”. Within the u sign we see repeatedly the dot (li) sign between two lines on either side gu. Li gu = “send forth sustenance”. These symbols probably read “Become visible a powerful (Leader/Fther) to send forth sustenance for mankind”.
Given the text on the seal, the figure on the log probably represents Anu, the sky Creator of all god.
These seals is telling man(kind) to offer a libation to Anu, to make this god a visible figure in their life.
To summarize, these seals relate to being good luck talisman reminding the bearer of the seals to worship their gods—not space travel.
