Etymology of the name 'ATHEH.
Meaning of the baby name 'ATHEH.

  

'ATHEH.  A goddess worshipped at Tarsus as a partner of Baal (q.v.).  The name occurs in combination with another in a Palmyrene inscription ('Athar-'atheh), the compound being apparently the equivalent of the Syrian Atargatis (q.v.).  On coins 'Atheh is represented seated on a lion.  At Hierapolis-Bambyce near the Euphrates the image of Atargatis was seated on a lion while it was worshipped.  Hommel thinks that the East of Asia Minor was the oldest centre of 'Atheh's worship, and that it spread to Western Asia and North Syria. (An Encyclopedia of Religions, Canney, 1921)
