Canaanite Mythology

The Gods of Ancient Canaan


Canaanite Storm God

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.
