Tashmetum is the Akkadian Goddess of supplication. She is called upon to listen to prayers and to grant requests. Her husband, Nabu, is the God of writing and wisdom; where Nabu speaks, Tashmetum listens. The couple shared a temple in the city of Borsippa, where they were the patron deities. Tashmetum’s name, which means “the lady who listens,” is also seen as Tashmitum, Tashmit, or Tashmetu, and she was known by the epithets Lady of Hearing and Lady of Favor.
