MESOPOTAMIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Ancient Gods of Sumer and Babylon...

AMURRU

Mesopotamian Mountain God

Also known as MARTU

Lonesome God of Mountain Pining

God of the Akkadian Mountains. He’s also the God of Nomads and Wandering Peoples — and might even cover hermits, loners and other mountain-based people.

His wife is BELETSERI, who works in the Office of Underworld Records. Presumably she has to commute to work every morning.
