Often depicted as a wise old man with a long beard, sin the moon god was one of the most important among the Babylonian gods. He was usually represented by the Moon in crescent moon to emphasize that the Moon had different phases. The sun goddess was the wife of Sin, and the stars were their daughters.
Because Sin illuminated the night, he was considered to be the enemy of all those who used the cover of darkness to do evil deeds. He was full of wisdom, and at the end of every month the other gods would come to him for advice. In fact, his name ‘Sin’ means ‘God of Wisdom’.
