Such as the Greeks, the Hebrows seem to have a flood as a legend at the beginning of their time. Anyone might think that there was a common Tsunami at the dawn of written time which made it's way into a lot of legends!



I seem to recall a Flood story that hails from ancient Babylon that may be the basis for the story of the Biblical Flood. It features a Noah-analog who is a trader and possesses a barge that has animals on it. The flood may be a flooding of the Nile.
