The Sumerian Bilgames includes bil, meaning roast or burn indicating a blackened or black-haired hero/king and young bull of the divine stones (me-s). It follows that Bilgames was described as the “young lord of Kallab,” and that Gilgames/Bilgames was described as a wild ox/bull: “Renowned for bodily stature, hero born in Uruk, butting wild bull.” Gilgames/Bilgames was further described as having dark lapis hair (black or a deep navy blue); hair thick like wool (likely curly) with a long thick beard to match. The archetypical Gilgamesh depiction was the same as other Sumerian kings, as well as Hittite and Syrian Hermonim kings, and Anunnaki/Igigi gods. Thus, Sumerians were renowned as black heads whether human or Anunnaki giants. The demigod kings of Ugarit and Mount Hermon held close relations with Sumerian gods and giants.
In the Ugaritic Texts, gods like Baal, Mot, and El traveled to and from the underworld. Baal spoke from the underworld when he threatened to slay Yam, a serpent monster cognate to Leviathan of the Bible and Tiamat of Sumer. Demigod Rephaim kings of Ugarit too “traveled” back and forth between earth and the underworld through portals both before and after death.

The lords in the above passage were the kings/bulls of Ugarit, Rapiu/Rephaim kings whose spirits were not permitted to sleep; demons commanded to accompany the recently deceased king Nimqad to the underworld, mirroring the ritual past events for the descent of parent god El and Baal to the underworld, the abyss prison. Ugaritic Texts documented several kings patronymically named Nimqad and Ammithmru/Ammith-Amru in a similar manner as the last king of Ugarit was named Ammurapi/Ammurabi, as we will detail later. This Ammurapi, according to researchers, was the last Rephaim king of Ugarit, but his Hermonim sons and bloodline continued.
