Cut-down Canaanite God of Healing
Sorry, he can heal no longer can as he suffered emasculation at the hands of a Goddess called ASTRONOE — a real no-noe Goddess. We know nothing else about her and feel no necessity to pursue our enquiries. Poor old ESHMUN was a healing deity and it was very much a case of physician heal thyself.
