HADAD
Also known as RIMMON

Blundering Canaanite Storm God known as 'The Crasher'.

Unlike most Storm Gods who bellow, roar and wield mighty thunder-generating weapons, HADAD causes thunder by stumbling around the sky and falling over things. How embarrassing.

Still, he does get a mention in the Old Testament under the name of Rimmon. And over in Babylon he was greatly respected under the name ADAD.

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