Igigi

Mesopotamian - The younger Sumerian sky-gods. Created by Marduk. These heavenly spirits, appearing as stars above the horizon are, in some versions, confused with the Annunaki which are those below the horizon. In some accounts, they are described as slave-gods who worked on earth. One of their main tasks was to keep open the channels of the rivers to allow the free flow of water. When they rebelled against Enlil's rule, his wife killed their leader, We-e, and created a completely new race. In some references, known as Igigi, Annunaki, Annunaki, Anunaki or Ennuki.
