In the Akkadian epic Enuma Elish, Kishar (need to add the name in cuneiform) is the daughter of Lahmu and Lahamu, the first children of Tiamat and Apsu. She is the female principle, sister and wife of Anshar, the male principle, and the mother of Anu. Kishar represents the earth as a counterpart to Anshar, the sky, and can be seen as an earth mother goddess.

Kishar appears only once in Enuma Elish, in the opening lines of the epic, and then disappears from the remainder of the action.
