Enlil the Chief Administrator of the Anunnaki on Earth, kingship was his portfolio and embodiment of organized society. It is from Sumer that we have inherited the concept of judges, juries witnesses, and contracts. The unity of society we call the "family ," based on a contractual marriage, rules of customs, succession, of adoption, rights of widows, economics activities, employment, wages and taxation, foreign trade.
