Left: Nimrod shown (Ѻ) wearing a long beard, carrying a spotted fawn or deer (see: reindeer), and holding a fir tree (see: Christmas tree) in his hand; all symbols now employed in one way or another with Christmas and Santa Claus today. Middle: Nimrod, with his spotted leopard. Right: Nimrod battling lion. The wings are thematic to Zoroaster (800BC), which are themselves a rescript of the wings of the aggregate Egyptian god Amen (1900BC).
In religio-mythology, Nimrod, worshiped: 2,000-1500BC, from Nimr, meaning “the leopard”, and Rod, meaning “to subdue”, rendered as “spotted” in Hebrew (Ѻ), was Sumerian god equivalent of the Egyptian Osiris.

Nimrod | Osiris
In 2004, Steven Merrill, in his Nimrod: Darkness in the Cradle of Civilization, describes Nimrod as such:

Nimrod tamed a leopard, according to legend. The leopard supposedly accompanied him on hunting expeditions. The Babylonian name for leopard is ‘Nimr’, and ‘Rod’ means, ‘to subdue.’ Nimrod is often depicted wearing a garment of leopard skin in the artwork of antiquity. The Hebrew word Nimrod means, 'to rebel,' or 'to revolt' That definition illustrates the story of this man's life. He was the chief instigator of the rebellion against god and is credited for building the Tower of Babel. Tammuz and Nimrod are names for the same person. Myths from civilizations of antiquity describe the sun god (deified Nimrod) fathered Tammuz using a sunbeam to impregnate the maiden Semiramis. The result was a re-incarnated Nimrod. Mythology portrays Semiramis as world civilizations worshipped her in that way. Extra-Biblical legends about Tammuz are plentiful. Sumerians called him Dumuzi. He was allegedly a shepherd king of Uruk during his lifetime. Dumuzi (Nimrod) married Manna (Semiramis). The gods granted him divine power over the fertility of plants and animals following the consummation of their marriage. According to legend, Dumuzi gave his life as a ransom for Manna after the goddess of the under-world captured her. Demons from the underworld slayed Dumuzi after Manna was released, and they took his spirit to their domain. Dumuzi was later freed from the underworld for half the year while his sister, Geshtinanna (goddess of wine), served out his term. The gods permitted this rotational arrangement because Manna mourned ceaselessly before the gods.”

The above mention of Nimrod and the leopard skin connects him to Osiris, Dionysus, Bacchus, Moses (see: Osiris, Dionysus-Bacchus, and Moses) and their leopard-skinned “thyrsus”.

Nimrod, according to Sumerian mythology, had a mother-wife named Sumeramis, or Semeramis (aka Astarte, Asherah, Ashtoreth, Isis, Ishtar and Easter) (Ѻ), who supposedly is the root (Ѻ) of the name Sumer. Nimrod then died, somehow, and Sumeramis, according to legend, reanimated (Ѻ) the dead body of Nimrod in order to conceive the child Tammuz:

Nimrod and Tammuz

Here, as we see, this is a retelling of the "black rite" reincarnation sex of Osiris to make Horus of Egyptian mythology.

Nimrod as tree 3
A depiction of the Nimrod as an evergreen tree, which is a rescript of Osiris as a tamarisk tree and or in the form of the djed pillar.
Evergreen tree
The story of Osiris turning into a tamarisk tree, in the Passion of Osiris, is also retold in the Sumerian mythology version as follows:

“The queen (Semiramis) told the worshipers that when Tammuz (aka Nimrod) was killed … some of his blood fell on the stump of an evergreen tree, and the stump grew into a full new tree overnight. This made the evergreen tree sacred by the blood of Tammuz.”
— David Meyer (2000), “The Pagan Origin of Easter (Ѻ)

In 1998, Sheryl Karas, in her The Solstice Evergreen, touches on some of this Tammuz tree variant. [2]

Obelisk | Phallus
In 2015, Roberta Sams, in her There Were Giants on the Earth on those Days, summarizes the obelisk as follows: [3]

“Another telling goes like this, Nimrod/Osiris was killed by an enemy and his body was cut into pieces and sent out into his kingdom. Semiramis gathered all the parts and seemingly put them back together, except for his reproductive organ, which she could not find. She proclaimed that Nimrod could not come back to life without that missing part, and she had one made and set up in Babylon. "Semiramis quarried out a stone from the mountains of Armenia which was one hundred and thirty feet long and twenty five feet wide and thick... she brought it down the stream to Babylonia...." "The ancient Greek historian, Diodorus, reports that Queen Semiramis erected a 130-foot obelisk in Babylon and it was associated with sun worship and represented the phallus of the sun god Baal/Nimrod. Some Masonic researchers say that the word `obelisk' literally means 'Baal's shaft' or 'Baal's organ of reproduction'." is . This particular obelisk is not found today, it is known as the Lost Obelisk of Babylonia. There are others. That missing part would later be represented by thousands of obelisks around the planet. The obelisk is still recognized as Osiris/Nimrod's phallus, his sex organ of reproduction. One wonders why there is a huge obelisk in Washington, D.C., and one at the Vatican. There are obelisks in just about every important city and in every nation on earth. Why?”
