Alexander himself had established the temple!
Now, archaeologists at the British Museum believe that a Greek temple of Alexander the Great was established at this site. It is also possible that Alexander himself had established it. The discovery of a silver coin minted by Alexander’s soldiers around 330 BCE suggests that he may have visited the temple after defeating the Persians.

Girsu City is believed to have been inhabited since 5000 BCE, becoming a sacred city to the Sumerians and the spiritual home of their warrior god Ningirsu. After excavations began in the 19th century, it appeared that a Greek structure might have been built on the site, but the only evidence was a mysterious tablet bearing the inscription ‘Adad-nadin-aḫḫe’ in both Greek and Aramaic, meaning Is ‘the giver of two brothers’.
Researchers were surprised to find that the temple was abandoned in 1750 BC, 1,000 years before Alexander the Great was born. Dr Sebastian Ray, an archaeologist at the British Museum, now believes that the Greeks probably established their temple at the ancient site to proclaim Alexander’s divinity.
