- 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 Gilgameshepic, 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.
