It’s a shame that the Babylonian gods aren’t as well known in pop culture as the Greek, Norse and Egyptian ones. I suppose it’s mostly just availability of knowledge: the Babylonian pantheon died out prior to the other ones, less statues and writings were preserved in the Tigris-Euphrates muds than in Nilotic sands, and the West has had even less contact with Mesopotamia than with, say, Egypt. But MAN, I love those Mesopotamian pantheons. My first player character in Dungeons & Dragons, way back in elementary school, was a worshipper of Ishtar. -_-
