Ashur

by Micha F. Lindemans
The patron god of ancient Assyria, assuming the role of Enlil and Marduk, and god of war. He was represented as a winged disc enclosing a stretched bow, ready to let fly an arrow. His consort was Ishtar, who responded to the warlike temperament of her mate by growing a beard that grew to her breasts.
