In his book, What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden? (New Haven, CT: Yale Univ. Press, 2013), Ziony Zevit brings up the third-millennium Sumerian myth of the creation of Nin-ti, “Lady Rib,” from Enki (the water god) and the fact that “ti” is also the sign for life, so Nin-ti can mean “Lady Life.” I agree with Zevit that this “rib” creation story is just too far distant in time, culture and philology to be relevant. However, I can see that some readers might wonder why it doesn’t come up.
