Goddess of the ancient Syrian city of Carchemish. In religious texts of the Hittite empire (c. 1400 - c. 1190 BC), she played a minor part and appeared mainly in a context of Hurrian deities and rituals. After the downfall of the empire her cult spread westward and northward, and she became the chief goddess of the successor kingdoms (the neo-Hittite states) from Cilicia to the Halys
