“I am Sargon the great king, king of Agade!
My mother was a high priestess, I do not know my father.
My high priestess mother secretly gave birth to me.
He put me in a reed basket, covered it with pitch.
He left me in the river, I couldn't get out.
The river dragged me to Akki, the water hammer.
Akki took me out of the water and raised me like his own son.”
The Akkadian civilization, which rose right next to the Sumerian cities, was not seen as a danger in its establishment. While the foundations of a strong rival were being laid, Sumer had been growing and developing for almost a thousand years. Until King Sargon, who brought an ambitious people behind him and ravaged the whole geography, took the stage.
The legend told at the birth of Sargon is attributed to Moses in the Torah, Cyrus in Iran and then to the twins who founded Rome. The farmer who finds Sargon raises him as an ordinary peasant. As Sargon reaches adulthood, he notices changes in his mind. A flamboyant goddess in black, veiled, with lions on both sides comes to visit her constantly. Goddess Ishtar...
B.C. In 2330, Sargon is no longer an ordinary wine dealer, but the True King, the leader of the rebellion he started. The world's first emperor. It is the sole ruler of the borders reaching Iran in the east and Anatolia in the north. The findings of cuneiform daily life and state affairs, which have survived to the present day, are recorded in this period. The documents of temples and religious texts continue to be written in Sumerian.
