Lahar was the Sumerian cattle-god sent by Enlil and Enki from heaven to earth in order to make abundant its cattle. He is the brother of Ashnan. Lahar, along with his sister, were created in the creation chamber of the gods so the Annunnaki might have food and clothes. When the Annunnaki were found unable to make use of their products, humankind was created to provide an outlet for their services. He is usually depicted as having ears of corn sprouting from his shoulders. He may also carry a bow and club and is often depicted with a ram at his feet.
