Ishat is a Phoenician Goddess of fire (Her name simply means "Fire"), called "the Bitch of the Gods". She is mentioned in the Epic of Ba'al as one of the enemies of the God who is destroyed by Anat, the warrior Goddess. Ishat is called "the Fiery" and is evidentally a Goddess of fire and heat; as Ba'al is the God of the rain and lightning (personified as the Goddesses Talaya and Pidraya, respectively) Who brings life-giving moisture to a dry land, perhaps Ishat represents the burning heat of summer that causes the plants to wither up and die.
