'''Asag''' ("demon that causes sickness") was a terrible chtonian demon from Sumerian legend responsible for draught and plague. ==Description== In the Sumerian mythological poem ''Lugale'', Asag is described as being so hideous that his presence makes fish boil alive in the rivers. :"Large, round, three-legged, three-armed creature with no neck and :several eyes covering their entire bulk. Has dark, hardened skin that :feels like rock when touched. Almost indestructible." ==Myth== He was said to be accompanied into battle by an army of rock demon offspring - born of his union with the mountains themselves. He was defeated by the god Ninurta. ==See also== Asag was often associated with the serpent or dragon mythological archetype by historians.
