Canaanite Mythology

The Gods of Ancient Canaan


Phoenician Healer God

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.

GodNote: Sorry this Eshmun article is a bit short. We have sent our Data Dwarves off to find more nuggets of information. Updates coming soon.
