Hittite Mythology

The Gods of the Hittites and Hurrians

TELEPINU

Hattic Agriculture God

Also known as TELEPINUS, TELIPINU, Talipinu, Talapinu

A rather incompetent God of Farming and Agriculture

Also prone to temper tantrums.

He once caused almost insurmountable problems by putting his boots on the wrong feet. This made him so cross that he flew off in a rage and all the crops withered.

It was left to Hannahanna to locate him. Which she accomplished with the aid of her magic bee — programmed for Seek And Sting operation.

Telepinu returned — with blisters on his hands and feet and a very glum expression.
