Ea/Enki was originally a Sumerian god adopted into Akkadian, Babylonian, Canaanite, Hittite and Hurrian theology where he was a creator god associated with water and was among the earliest deities to be associated with numerology (his sacred number was 40). His image is a double-helix snake, or the Caduceus, similar to the Rod of Asclepius, and is often shown with a horned crown of divinity dressed in the skin of a carp.  From the 3rd millennium BCE, Ea represents wisdom, semen and magic.
