Enmesarra, or Enmešarra, in Sumerian and Akkadian mythology is an underworld god of the law. Described as a Sun god, protector of flocks and vegetation, and therefore he has been equated with Nergal.[1] On the other hand, he has been described as an ancestor of Enlil,[2] and it has been claimed that Enlil slew him.[3]
