In Sumerian religion, Acgi, Ašgi or Asgi was the warrior son of Nintud (another name for Ninlil or Ninhursag).[1][2] The Kesh temple hymn describes his birth:

Will anyone else bring forth something as great as Kesh? Will any other mother ever give birth to someone as great as its hero Acgi? Who has ever seen anyone as great as its lady Nintud?.[3]
