Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Atargatis, in Aramaic ‘Atar‘atah, was a Syrian deity, " great goddess of northern Syria","the great mistress of the North Syrian lands" Rostovtseff called her, commonly known to the ancient Greeks by a shortened form of the name, Aphrodite Derceto or Derketo and as Dea Syria, "Goddess of Syria". her chief sanctuary was at Hierapolis, northeast of Aleppo, occasionally rendered in one word Deasura. Primarily she was a goddess of fertility, but, as the baalat of her city and people, she was also responsible for their protection and well-being. She is often now popularly described as the mermaid-goddess, from her fish-bodied appearance at Ascalon and in Diodorus Siculus — a widely accessible source — but which is by no means her universal appearance.
