Subject of this book is the god Dagan (biblical Dagon), the principal deity of the Middle Euphrates region. Lluís Feliu, carefully analysing the sources from Ebla and Mari for the third millennium, from Mari for the Old Babylonian period and from Emar and Ugarit for the Middle Babylonian period, here gives a meticulous diachronic survey of the divine subject. A final chapter summarizes the results in describing the character of Dagan, his origin and his area of influence. Of particular interest to Assyriologists, to biblical scholars and to comparative religionists.
