Mount Nisir

    The Assyrian king Assurbanipal claimed that he had been to Mount Nisir and saw the boat of Utnapishtim. His army and he then took artifacts from the boat and put them in his museum of ancient artifacts. However, this museum has long since been destroyed so archaeology doesn't know how much truth there is in the story. Mount Nisir is supposedly in mordern-day Iran, and thus it is inaccesible to the western world.
