"Once I sought out a celebrated ethnologist, and amused him with peculiar questions regarding the ancient Philistine legend of Dagon, the Fish-God; but soon perceiving that he was hopelessly conventional, I did not press my inquiries."
H.P. Lovecraft, Dagon

"The Philistine rulers held a great festival, offering sacrifices and praising their god, Dagon."
The Holy Bible, Judges 16:23

"It was represented under a monstrous combination of a human head, breast, and arms, joined to the belly and tail of a fish." 
Dr. Robert Jamieson, A.R. Fausset & David Brown, Commentary On the Whole Bible
