The Long Chariot

Lord of the Long Chariot Far above the Lion lie the two Bears. The seven brightest stars of Ursa Major were the Sumero-Akkadian Mar-gidda, "The-Long-Chariot" and "Lord-of-the-Ghost-World," connected with Mul-lil, Lord of the Underworld and the Night-world, and in this aspect was called Wul-mo-sarra "The-Lord-the-Voice-of-the-Firmament." According to Brown "High enthroned in the north, by its splendor it awed & ruled the wandering phantoms and powers of darkness." http://www.ye-stars.com/tmacons.htm
