Milkastart


Milkastart was a, Western Semitic, local tutelary god known only from Umm el-Ammed where his cult apparently coexisted with that of Baal Sapon. One of two major temples dedicated to him was at Umm el-Ammed in the third century BC and the name Milkastart is thought to be a syncretization of Melqart and Astarte. A.G.H.
