Zabib

Zabib (Flame) is a Canaanite Goddess of Fire or Flame, and the daughter of El, the King of the Gods. Zabib is sometimes rendered Zebub (as there are no vowels in Ugaritic), and in that case Her name means Fly, after the insect. The fly, at least in Egypt (which had plenty of cultural contact with Canaan), was regarded as symbolic of the tenacity of a warrior in battle, who will not let up on the enemy.
