by Dr Anthony E. Smart
Baalat is queen of the gods. She is associated with books, libraries, and writers. She was worshipped primarily in the city of Byblos (which is the original source of papyrus) and Byblos is what the Greeks called papyrus and, eventually, books.

Also an epithet of the goddess Ashtart.
