Fun facts about Moses

In 2334 BC, Sargon I ruled Mesopotamia despite being born a commoner and also a servant to the previous king. After he died a lot of his life became more mythology than reality. Legend says he was the secret child of a priestess who placed her baby (Sargon) in a basket in the river where he was later found. The similarity between stories led many to believe that the birth legend of Sargon inspired part of the Biblical story of Moses.
