there is what is possibly an interest include to in the text as to what the sumerians might have represented. This involves the name of the memory in hiking index Mark Dayton and he tends to get overlooked mainly because Balor is such an imposing presence, but he's really ballots bus. It's kind of like the divider palpatine arrangement, you know, or to quote quite engine. There's always a bigger fish. We will never get through one episode. Right. A Star Wars reference. Uh, anyway, Mark Williams are pointed out the similarity between his name, which is spelled D O M N. Uh N. N. Or A N N. I suppose english, uh, but pronounced donen with a name that was used for the two a day in the 10th century. Uh, two a day dominant in old irish, which became to die down in in middle irish before being corrupted into the common name for them today to a dead. And then he puts this forward as evidence that there was never a goddess called danu an irish myth which we've talked about in previous episodes of the show. But he doesn't really pursue what the meaning of day down and might be just a health warning or caviar on this theory because giant health warning, not giant, a medium sized woman, healthy health war. Anyway, I'm not a linguist but I'm not fluent in old or a middle irish. In fact my modern irish irish is only middling but there is a word that has recently fallen out of use in the irish language at last appears in the dictionary in O'donnell's 1977 Folklore Gilda Birla and it looks very similar to the name of the sumerian king. That word is don't and spelled D or M A H N a father N, which means little world or microcosm when preceded by the word they God or gods here, it would have to be changed imaginative case. Ak traditional gonna talk, but that just involves putting an eye before the end. Yeah, it's a shame that word has fallen out of use. The current official word for microcosm in irish is a microcosm. A but I much prefer down on. Um But yeah, some of the God of the Little World is a very interesting name when you put it in the context of irish myth and folklore. But if this theory is correct, it sheds a whole new light on the identity of the sumerians and raises a lot of questions about the two at a but in later folklore, the little folk or their fairies, you know, the good people and some of whom are mischievous but helpful, so benevolent tricksters.
