Aratta is a land that appears in Sumerian myths surrounding Enmerkar and Lugalbanda, two early and possibly mythical kings of Uruk also mentioned on the Sumerian king list.

Aratta is described as follows in Sumerian literature as a fabulously wealthy place full of gold, silver, lapis lazuli and other precious materials, as well as the artisans to craft them. It is remote and difficult to reach. It is home to the goddess Inanna, who transfers her allegiance from Aratta to Uruk. It is conquered by Enmerkar of Uruk.

“I AM Babylon. I AM The Gateway. I am known as Inanna, Ishtar, Nanaea, Astarte, Isis. I cannot be used as a tool for men to bargain with blood and magic to sit among the adepts. No man can take my mysteries without my choice to give it to them. To reveal my mysteries I must love a man with my mind, heart and soul and after with my body. Because I choose. Only the Goddess can make a god or a king or a master.”
