Ashur

 


Ashur, in Assyria, assumed the roles of Marduk and Enlil, which would be expected as a military civilization developed. Ashur was a war god. It became usual practice to parade through the capital, also named Ashur, prisoners vouchsafed to Ashur. He was portrayed as a winged disc enclosing a stretched bow ready to let an arrow fly. His consort was Ishtar, who responded to the warlike temperament of her mate by sprouting a beard that extended to her breasts. A.G.H.
