under another name.
Mot, which is possibly an alias for Nergal, was a death god living in the underworld of Irkalla.
Seeking the secrets of life and death, Ba'al went into Irkalla. There, Mot tricked him into eating from the table of the dead, killing him and entrapping him in the afterlife.
Ba'al's wife Anath defeated Mot, ensuring Hadad's resurrection.
