Ishtar (Epic of Gilgamesh)

Halloway, April. “The Ishtar Gate and the Deities of Babylon | Ancient Origins.” 20 July 2014. Web. 20 July 2017. http://www.ancient-origins.net/ancient-places-asia/ishtar-gate-and-deities-babylon-001868

“Gilgamesh and Enkidu also defeated the Bull of Heaven, who was sent to destroy Uruk by the furious goddess Ishtar after Gilgmesh said that he wouldn’t go to the prom with her.”
