Daʹgon (Hebrew, Jag On, the fish On)

.

The idol of the Philistines; half woman and half fish. (See Atergata.)        

“Dagon his name; sea-monster, upward man

And downward fish; yet had his temple high

Rearʹd in Azoʹous dreaded through the coast

Of Palestine, in Gath and Asʹcalon,

And Accaron and Gaza’s frontier bounds.”
