Enki - God of the Sea and River.

Enki ("Lord of the Earth") (Akkadian Ea) was a Sumerian god of the sub-terranean fresh water ocean (abuzu) and associated with wisdom, magic, incantations and the arts and crafts of civilisation. He was seen as a provider of fresh water, a creator god and the determiner of fates and destinies. He helps mankind escape the flood sent by the other gods to destroy them. His sacred number was 40. He was often depicted with two streams of water emanating from his shoulders, representing the Tigris and Euphrates.
