The Path of Ea starts from the constellation of Canis Major, going through Cancer, Leo, Vela, Centaurus, Libra, Lupus, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and finally, Capricorn. It is unlikely a method of learning the night sky for the planting of crops. This is done by observing the Sun and Moon. It would have been important dates for their rituals.
THE 15 STARS ON THE PATH OF EA
The Fish (KU6) Ea, a god, the lead star of the stars of Ea. This is the constellation of Cancer. There is no specific star mentioned. The star Sirius, α (alpha) Canis Majoris, in the constellation of Canis Major, has not been mentioned and when calculating dates. It is a surprise as the brightest star in the sky.
The Great God Ea (GU.LA Ea), the Star of Eridu (NUN. (KI)), Ea, a god. This is the constellation of Leo. The star of Eridu could be Regulus, α (alpha) Leonis in that constellation.

The wild boar (EN.TE.NA.BAR.CHUM), NIN.GIR.SU. This is unclear, but is probably the constellation of Centaurus.
The star to its side: The Harrow (GISH). GAN.UR, the weapon of A.E – in which one sees the Apsu. The first star of Libra may be Zubenelgenubi, α (alpha) Librae.
