A History of Babylon

Show Summary

Sinidinnam and his army [says King] carried off certain Elamite goddesses to their own land, conveying them carefully in their shrines; and on the restoration of the images to Elam the goddesses themselves returned thither. . . . Perhaps the most striking example is Ashurbani-pal’s recovery of Nana’s image from Susa which had been carried off from Erech 1,635 years before.3

In Chap. XI the practice of adopting the spirits of slain enemies will be mentioned.

3King, L.W.n/an/an/an/a, , 296 note.
