Assyrian soldiers carrying a statue of Adad

Oftentimes he is shown standing near a bull or a lionlike dragon. His cult was widely spread throughout Asia Minor, Mesopotamia, Syria, and Palestine. Adad's sacred number is either six or sixty, sources vary; his sacred animal is t he bull and his symbol is the lightning bolt. He is similar to the demon Rimmon, who within the Order of the Fly he is seen as Hell's ambassador to Russia.
