number 3 in mythology InannaInanna Rose from the Dead after Three Days and Three Nights – Sumerian

Inanna, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, descended to the Underworld to attend her brother-in-laws funeral. 

Ereshkigal (her sister) was the Queen of the Underworld, which was a dark and gloomy place. After arriving Inanna was killed.

For three days and three nights her corpse hung on a hook.

Enki (the god of freshwater, magic and culture), created two sexless creatures and sent them to the Underworld to save Inanna.

On the third day, Inanna returned to the world of the living. Her sister had demanded that someone was to take her place in the Underworld.

When Inanna discovered her husband, Dumuzi, had not mourned her death she was furious and ordered him to take her place in the Underworld.

Dumuzi was terrified and tried to escape, but a fly conveniently informed Inanna where he was to be found.

Dumuzi’s sister was in great despair and offered to take his place.

It was finally agreed that Dumuzi was to spend one half of the year in the Underworld and his sister the other half.
