Tiamat (“Sea,” in Akkadian) was the ancient Sumero-Babylonian personification of the primordial salt waters of chaos. With her consort Apsu, the ‘sweet’ water, Tiamat mothered the first generation of the gods.

Tiamat took the form of a gigantic winged dragon, whose body was split in two by the hero Marduk to create the heavens and the firmament: her upper body became the vault of heaven; the lower, the earth; her blood, the oceans.
