about

Ishtar is the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of fertility, love, war, and sex. Ishtar was above all associated with sexuality: her cult involved sacred prostitution, her holy city Uruk was called the "town of the sacred courtesans"; and she herself was the "courtesan of the gods". Ishtar herself had many lovers. One of the most famous myths about Ishtar describes her descent to the underworld. This edition is specially formatted for e-readers.
