English term or phrase: primeval
Estoy traduciendo un texto sobre mitología egipcia y me aparece bastante este adjetivo para referirse a cualquier cosa que estaba antes de la creación según su mitología.


- "The Egyptians speculated that the primeval substance was watery and dark"
- "Other texts refer to the creator’s driving back the primeval waters"

Dudo entre traducirlo como primigenio/a o primitivo, ¿cómo creéis que es mejor?

Aquí sin duda.
Dependerá en todo caso del contexto específico.
