Post a Comment. Its focus will be on visual sources, which are essential for interpreting the religious symbol systems of antiquity. As a matter of fact, numerous DDD lemmata do not have visual correlatives; on the other hand, visual sources attest 'icon types', which cannot always be identified or labeled with a divine name. Moreover, while DDD demonstrates how many of the Near Eastern deities and demons have found their place into the Bible in some way or another, there are others, including major deities, who are not mentioned in the Bible and thus remain absent from DDD.

Worship of Ashtoreth was strong at Sidon.
