Yazilikaya Gods and godesses

view map

Most of the gods in their procession are named. Strangely their names are in Hurrian, the language of another people in the region. The Hittite princesses and queens likewise had Hurrian names. The gods can be identified, but that is for the experts. The sun-god can be easily identified however, with a winged sun disk on his head. Goddesses have pleated dresses and a broad belt.

There was a message from Ana (no address) asking me if she could use pictures like these in a Powserpoint presentation: that never is any problem, I would like to be informed, but such use is perfectly alright with me.
