LOTAN
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.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Lotan graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Lotan movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Lotan statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Lotan. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
