Adad is the Assyrian god of weather, hurricanes, storms, thunder and rain.
Adad in Akkadian and Ishkur in Sumerian and Hadad in Aramaic and Arabic language, are the names of the storm-god in the Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian pantheon.
When Enki distributed the destinies, he made Adad inspector of the cosmos. Adad is proclaimed as "great radiant bull, your name is heaven" and also called lord who rides the storm, lion of heaven.
Adad presents two aspects in the hymns, incantations, and votive inscriptions. On the one hand he is the god who, through bringing on the rain in due season, causes the land to become fertile, and, on the other hand, the storms that he sends out bring havoc and destruction. He is pictured on monuments and cylinder seals (sometimes with a horned helmet) with the lightning and the thunderbolt (sometimes in the form of a spear).
