8 Seeds

An old legend tells that one day his wife the goddess Ninhursag , an earthly goddess, noticed that Enki was pursuing his own daughters. With the help of Utu, the great god of justice, she arranged for him to eat 8 seeds, which came out of his stomach giving birth to 8 young daughters to replace the ones he had deflowered. Enki became the god EA in the Assyrian Babylonian period. Cited from website: The gods of SUMER
