A form of the myth was first published by George Smith in ; active research and further excavations led to near completion of the texts, and improved translation. Most of Tablet V has never been recovered but, aside from this lacuna , the text is almost complete. This epic is one of the most important sources for understanding the Babylonian world view. Over the seven tablets it describes the creation of the world, a battle between gods focused on supremacy of Marduk , the creation of man destined for the service of the Mesopotamian deities , and ends with a long passage praising Marduk. Its primary original purpose is unknown, although a version is known to have been used for certain festivals. There may also have been a political element to the myth, centered on the legitimization or primacy of Mesopotamia over Assyria. Some later versions replace Marduk with the Assyrian primary god Ashur. Some elements of the myth are attested by illustrations that date to, at least, as early as the Kassite era roughly 18th to 16th centuries BCE. Prior to the discovery of the tablets, substantial elements of the myth had survived via the writings of Berossus , a 3rd-century BC Babylonian writer and priest of Bel Marduk. In it are described the primeval state of an abyssal darkness and water, the two primeval beings existing therein, said to be of a twofold principle.
