Allat aka Sheba
Just 1400 years ago Muslims took control of the goddess’ Mecca shrine away from the priestesses of Allat — whom they slaughtered.
But to this day, the men who guard the Kaaba-shrine are still called “Sons of the Ancient Woman.” Sons of Sheba, in Arabic, Beni Shaybah. Goddess Allat had a nickname, or extra title, Sheba pronounced Shaybah. Meaning the wise-woman, or, “She of the ancient wisdom.”
