Random information on the term “ADAM”:

Adapa was a Mesopotamian mythical figure who unknowingly refused the gift of immortality. The story, commonly known as “Adapa and the South Wind”, is known from fragmentary tablets from Tell el-Amarna in Egypt (~14th century BC), and from finds from the Library of Ashurbanipal, Assyria (~7th century BC).

Adapa was an important figure in Mesopotamian religion – his name would be used to invoke power in exorcism rituals; he also became an archetype for a wise ruler – in that context his name would be invoked to evoke favorable comparisons.

Some scholars conflate Adapa and the Apkallu known as Uanna – there is some evidence in favor of this connection, though the name “adapa” may have also been used as an epithet, meaning “wise”.

Adapa’s story was initially known from a find at Amarna in Egypt from the archives of the egyptian king Amenophis IV (1377-1361 BC). By 1912 three finds from the Library of Ashurbanipal (668-626 BC) had been interpretative and found to contain parts of the story. As of 2001 five fragments from the library are known – there are differences in several of the known versions of the text.[1][2]
