LOTAN

Mesopotamian fabulous creature

Also known as LAWTAN

The seven-headed fire-breathing croco-dragon sea monster

A primeval serpent creature of fearsome aspect, his monstrous temper and appetite for destruction won him few friends.

The Big Bad of several legends, he came to represent an entire genre of fearsome monstrous creatures.

He made lives a misery for many but was eventually chained up by ANATH. A great escape is never to be ruled out.

However, legends of him could not be chained — he pops up in the Bible under the name LEVIATHAN and is now more famous than ever.
