A Goddess from 2th Century BC Ancient Mesopotamia – ''Bau'' was a unique ''City Deity''. As was custom with that Culture, various Gods and Goddess were used as specific Patron to various large-scale Cities. Baus was worshiped as a ''Divine Healer'', responsible for the overall ''Health'' of The City of Lagash (Iraq). Plagues and related diseases were attributed to an insincere or poor offering made to The Goddess. Healers routinely invoked Her name with their remedies.
