Stamp "black sun".
The "magical" (black) sun is witnessed for the first time in the Akkadian-Old Babylonian realm (Sargon I., Naram-Sin). As BAB-CHOME the invisible "dark sun" is considered to be the source of power of the supernatural deity "ILU", directly connected with the deity acting from the hereafter, which - in part - by the gods and goddesses, especially Anu, Enlil, Ea, Ishtar and Marduk can be used. The close relationship of this world of the gods with that of the Edda has been proved, even though until now without the final valid explanation for this Mesapotamian-Germanic commonality.
One of the best known and most beautiful representations of the "Black Sun", which is placed next to the "Sun of the Day", is located on the large Naram Sin stele, which is kept in the Louvre in Paris. The myth of the Black Sun came from southern Babylonia to Assyria, Persia, Phenicia, Carthage and Egypt. Emperor Frederick II brought an Assyrian amulet with the "Black Sun" to Europe; and this is their first tangible emergence in Europe (which, however, does not say anything about whether the "Black Sun" faith may have been native to us in earlier Germanic times, see Mesopotamian-Germanic commonality).
