Dagon has been called the "fish-god" ever since the days of Jerome, who so identified him (evidently because the Hebrew word for "fish" is dag). However, archaeologists have found references to Dagon, who was seemingly a very important deity in all the ancient nations of the Middle East. He is now believed to have been the "god of grain" (the Hebrew word for "grain" is dagan).
