Dagon was the Mesopotamian god of vegitation. Dagon is said to have invented the plough, and shared his wisdom of the lands to aid mankind in feeding themselves.
Dagon is one of the oldest of the gods, and was potrayed as half fish, half man. His name means “corn” — which, in English refers to certain cereal grains, including oats, wheat and barley. (The word “corn” in North America now refers exclusively to maize, which was not present in Mesopotamia at the time.).
