Dagon | Mesopotamian Mythology

Dagon was the Mesopotamian god of vegitation. He is said to have invented the plough, and shared his wisdom of the lands to aid mankind in feeding themselves.

He is one of the oldest of the gods, and was potrayed as half fish, half man. His name means “corn” — which, in English refers to certain cereal grains, including oats, wheat and barley. (The word “corn” in North America now refers exclusively to maize, which was not present in Mesopotamia at the time.).
