the double-headed eagle was known under a variety of names among ancient civilizations. The Hittites called it Teshup. In ancient India the bird was called Garuda. The Seliuk Turks referred to it as Hamca and among the Zuni it appeared as a highly conventionalized design, but still as a double-headed thunder bird, the Sikyatki.

 

Mushushu and Ningizzida neobabylonian 626 BC and ended in 539 BC

Ningishzida (sum: dnin-g̃iš-zid-da) is a Mesopotamian deity of vegetation and the underworld. Thorkild Jacobsen translates Ningishzida as Sumerian for “lord of the good tree”.[1]

Some accounts suggest that the oldest known imagery of the caduceus have their roots in a Mesopotamian origin with the Sumerian god Ningishzida whose symbol, a staff with two snakes intertwined around it, dates back to 4000 B.C. to 3000 B.C.[Gary Lachman, “The Quest for Hermes Trismigestus”, 2011, Chapter 3, p. x.]

The overall composition of this ritual vase
evokes the regenerative power of nature,
of which this god is the driving force.

In front of two winged reptiles,
demi-gods with their horned tiaras
are two upward spiraling serpents.
This is an image of vital power which is also
reminiscent of the Greek caduceus.
