Abstract The motive behind this brief note concerns the faulty perception of ‘universality’ applied by commentators to the story of Noah and his descendants, and thus conferring upon it an aura of mere mythology influenced by Mesopotamian sources. The aim here was to look into the issue of ‘race’ that leads from Ham to his son Cush and his descendants, and in particular to the illustrious Nimrod and the empire he built.
