In Sumerian and Akkadian mythologies, there are minor deities that were known only in certain villages. Asarluhi is one of those obscure gods, but throughout time, he became more well-known and acknowledged as the god of magical knowledge. Some texts also highlight his role in exorcism rituals, specifically in Sumerian religions. Asarluhi’s other name is Namshub in other ancient texts, describing his role as a protector god, a deity that lights the way for the other gods. Eventually, Asarluhi syncretized with a major god Marduk, a major deity in the ancient city of Babylon. Thus, original "Asarluhi" was forgotten, and simply became "one of the fifty" names of another god.
