- What about: Dorch Dorain Dorisian / Doresian Dorn -Stephen (Steg) "Send [that god] to me that he might be my husband, That he might lodge with me... If [you don't] send t[hat] god, According [to the ordinances of Irkall]a and the great underworld, I shall send up the dead that they might devour the living, I shall make the dead more numerous than the living." ~ ereshkigal, sumero-akkadian goddess of the netherworld, 'myth of nergal and ereshkigal'
