King of Ebla

Sagisu (also Sagishu) was a king (Malikum) of the first Eblaite kingdom ruling c. 2680 BC.[1] The king's name is translated as "DN has killed".[note 1][2]

Eblaites practiced the worship of deceased kings;[3] the cult of Sagisu was maintained in Ebla and was of importance during the enthronement of new kings.[4] Offerings were presented to Sagisu during the coronation festivals of kings Irkab-Damu and Isar-Damu; this prove the continuity of the royal family of Ebla.[5]
