Meaning & History

This was the name of an obscure but very old god in Elamite religion. It is uncertain what the meaning of his name was in the Elamite language. Most sources equate him with the Babylonian god Anu 2, so he must have been a god of the heavens. There are also sources (virtually all of them questionable) that claim that he was the god of the underworld, but obviously this should be taken with a grain of salt. Jabru was possibly the father of the god Humban and later replaced by him - this is much like his Babylonian counterpart Anu, who was eventually replaced by his son Enlil. Nothing else is known about Jabru, unfortunately.
