The ancient world was divided, according to the Greek proto-scientist Ptolemy, in three: Europe west, Asia east and Libya south, being south of The Sea, the Mediterranean. In the Akkadian tongue, spoken earlier in Mesopotamia betwixt the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers, erebu meant sunset, and asu meant sunrise. From this, some have surmised that the names Europe and Asia derived, as the lands upon which the sun set in the evening and arose in the morning. Erebu, Europe, Asu, Asia. Evening erebu Europe. Asu morning Asia. The evening and the morning were what composed the day of early man.
