Da’gon (Hebrew, Jag On, the fish On).
 
The idol of the Philistines; half woman and half fish. (See ATERGATA.)
       
“Dagon his name; sea-monster, upward man
And downward fish; yet had his temple high
Rear’d in Azo’ous dreaded through the coast
Of Palestine, in Gath and As’calon,
And Accaron and Gaza’s frontier bounds.”
