God of the Week: You pick

Well, we’re 5 gods into the thousands that populate Assyrian mythology. This is such a rich field, and sometimes it’s hard to pick which god/dess to focus on.

So…I’m going to let you pick.

Please comment here as to a god/dess you’d like to know more about and we might see them next week! (Depending on how many people comment).

For now: here’s a little titbit about Tiamat:

“Do you know how uncomfortable it is to be ripped in two? I mean, literally ripped into two different pieces. Part of my body now forms the sky and the other half, the ground. It gives a whole new meaning to the word ‘breezy’.”
