  Erech
The ancient city of Erech was one of the first cities established after the Biblical account of the Great Flood.
Erech was located in the alluvial plain area of southern Mesopotamia, between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers.
The domestication of grains and proximity to the regions two great rivers increased the population of Erech to the regions largest, both in population and area.

 Erech - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Erech (Hebrew name ארך, meaning 'to extract, or draw out') was an ancient city in the land of Shinar, thought to be the second city built by king Nimrod following the destruction of the Tower of Babel.
Although the exact location of Erech is now uncertain, the Book of Jubilees 9:3 identifies that the land of Shinar was allocated to Asshur, second son of Shem, and this strongly supports the placement of Erech in the northern part of Mesopotamia.
There are nevertheless many notable scholars who believe from archaeological artefacts that the place of Erech may be Uruk in southern Mesopotamia.

 Epic of Gilgamesh (Myth-Folklore Online)
As Shepherd (i.e., King) of Erech he forced the people to toil overmuch, and his demands reduced them to such a state of misery that they cried out to the gods and begged them to create some king who should control Gilgamish and give them deliverance from him.
When Gilgamish heard his story he advised him to act upon a suggestion which the hunter's father had already made, namely that he should hire a harlot and take her out to the forest, so that Enkidu might be ensnared by the sight of her beauty, and take up his abode with her.
Enkidu hearkened and the harlot then told him of the glories of Erech and of Gilgamish, who, she said, had been forewarned of Enkidu's coming by two dreams, which he had related to his divine mother, Nin-sun.

 The Tower of Babel and Babylon, Gilgamesh, Ningizzida, Gudea
Erech was the home of Gilgamesh, the hero of the great Akkadian epic.
Archaeologists have found that this city was one of the oldest of Babylonia, founded before 4000 B.C. One of the earliest dynasties of the Sumerians ruled from Erech, it boasted the first ziggurat, or temple tower, and began the use of clay cylinder seals.
A cylinder seal from Erech, end of the fourth century B.C., depicts the god Tammuz (a fertility god widely worshipped in Mesopotamia, Syria, and Palestine) feeding the cattle of the temple.

The cornfields of Babylonia were mostly in the south, where Larsa, Lagash, Erech, and Calneh were the centres of an opulent agricultural population.

Gilgamesh has yearned for a companion, and the goddess Arurn makes Ea-bani, the warrior; "covered with hair was all his body and he had tresses like a woman, his hair grew thick as corn; though a man, he lives amongst the beasts of the field".

 Kingdoms of Armorican Celts - Bro Erech
Situated nearest the Frankish border, Bro Erech was the surviving portion of the Vannetais kingdom, once Cornouaille and Domnonia had become separate principalities in their own right.
This shrunken Vannetais continued to bear that name until it was retitled Bro Erech, the name deriving from Waroch (as Bro-Waroch), and is first mentioned in the Lives of the Saints.
It is also mentioned by Gregory of Tours, who locates much of the events of his lifetime near Vannes, presumably an important site in Vannetais and named after the former (submerged) Vaneti tribe of the area.

It is generally agreed that he was a king of the land of Sumer who reigned in the third millennium over the city of Uruk or Erech in probable succession to the king Dumuzi.
Then, seeing Ishtar on the walls of Erech, weeping in the midst of her sacred courtesans, he skinned off the right flank of the celestial bull and flung it derisively onto the goddess's face, saying: 'And thou too, let me but catch thee - I shall do as much to thee'.
Still haunted by the fear of death he evoked the shade of Enkidu, to learn from him the 'law of the world'; but Enkidu could only describe to his friend the mournful condition of those who are everlastingly imprisoned in the sombre kingdom of Nergal.

 Gilgamesh, Sumerian Cycle: Gilgamesh and Agga of Kish
The story of the struggle between Erech and Kish is told in the form of a Sumerian epic poem whose chief characters are Agga, the last ruler of the first dynasty of Kish, and Gilgamesh, the king of Erech and "lord of Kullab".
The poem begins with the arrival in Erech of Agga's envoys bearing an ultimatum to its king Gilgamesh.
The meaning of the remainder of the poem is not too clear, but it seems that Gilgamesh in some way succeeds in gaining the friendship of Agga and in having the siege lifted without a fight.
