house of the seven spheres of heaven and earth

the house of the seven spheres of heaven and earth
 
Borsippa, it would seem, had once been an independent town, and Nebo,....had been its protecting deity. In the middle of the city rose E-Zida, the temple of Nebo...."the supreme house of life," and its lofty TOWER termed "the house of the seven spheres of heaven and earth." It had been founded, though never finished, according to NEBUCHADNEZZAR, by an ancient king. For long centuries it had remained a heap of ruin, until restored by Nebuchadnezzar, and legends had grown up thickly around it." http://www.hope-of-israel.org/hebdo.htm
