Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ishara (i ara) is the Hittite word for "treaty, binding promise," also personified as a goddess of the oath. In Hurrian and Semitic traditions, I ara is a love goddess, often identified with Ishtar. Her cult was of considerable importance in Ebla from the mid 3rd millennium, and by the end of the 3rd millennium, she had temples in Nippur, Sippar, Kish, Harbidum, Larsa, and Urum. The word is attested as a loanword in the Assyrian K ltepe texts from the 19th century BC, and is as such the earliest attestation of a word of any Indo-European language.show more
