AN (orderly sun god)
Image: A glowing object
Definition: God AN, divine-ones - The sun as the largest glowing object visible from the earth. As plural it can represent all glowing objects and be an epithet for all the divine powers. AN is the orderly masculine connective power of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm which represents the network which in turn is edited by his companion female power, INANNA. Sumerian texts call AN "harvest-chief" and "plant-grower."
He needs to be contrasted with the chaotic network power Bu or Bau who is represented as a bull. Bu represents the rainstorms and thus brings the rains. Previously, this cuneiform sign was assumed to be a star but that is incorrect based upon the latest text translations done to the scholar's standard.
