ENNS, a small town of about 4,200 inhabitants in Upper Aus tria, on the left bank of the Enns near its confluence with the Danube. This site lay on one of the old salt routes across the Danube to Bohemia so that this is one of the oldest towns in Austria ; nearby is the site of the Roman Laureacum. The present town grew around a castle built in 90o by the Bavarians as an outpost against Magyar attacks but the settlement soon gained prosperity as a market and obtained a charter as a free town in 1212. Passing to the Hapsburgs in 1275 it obtained the protection necessary to its development and now maintains its early func tions as a regional centre. Three miles distant lies the magnif icent Augustinian monastery of St. Florian, a foundation due to the Benedictines, who occupied it from the 7th to the 1 ith cen tury; the library is famous for its collection of old manuscripts. ENOCH was (Gen. iv. 17, 18) the eldest son of Cain, who named a city after him. But in the genealogy of the Priestly document he appears as the seventh in descent from Adam in the line of Seth. The brief notice in Gen. v. 21-24 is certainly a frag ment from an Enoch myth. The fact that his years are given as 365 suggests that he was a solar hero. A connection between Enoch and the Euedorachos who is seventh in the list of ante diluvian kings given by Berossus, and may be the Enmeduranki or Enmeduranna of other similar Babylonian lists, is possible, but precarious. (See ENOCH, BOOK OF, and ENOCH, BOOK OF THE SECRETS OF.) Enoch appears in the Old Testament also as the name of clans belonging respectively to Midian and Reuben.
