Aga of Kish


Aga of Kish

Aga is listed on the "Sumerian king list" as the last king in the first Dynasty of Kish.

Aga is also mentioned in the "Epic of Gilgamesh" as having besieged Uruk. The Gilgamesh epic, the Sumerian king list, and the "Tummal Chronicle" [cite web |url=http://etcsl.orinst.ox.ac.uk/cgi-bin/etcsl.cgi?text=t.2.1.3# |title=ETCSLtranslation : t.2.1.3; The history of the Tummal |accessdate=2008-04-22] all call him the son of En-me-barage-si, a king who has been verified through archaeological inscription, leading to theories that Gilgamesh was also historical.
