Supreme God of the Sun, as featured in the Old Testament 2Kings 17:31
The consort of ANAMMELECH, the Moon, ADRAMMELECH himself was very popular, offering warmth and protection for the very reasonable price of a few burnt infant sacrifices. We can't say what form his protection took, but as he was a Sun God it was probably sunstroke.
When the Sepharvites moved to Samaria, their Gods went with them. The Sepharvites ended up as good Samaritans, but their Gods were up against some pretty stiff competition. Consequently, ADRAMMELECH appears to have burnt out long ago.
