In Mesopotamian mythology Mamitu was the goat-headed goddess of destiny, who decreed the fate of the new-borns.[citation needed] She was also worshipped as goddess of the oath, later a goddess of fate and a judge in the underworld, where she lives with the Anunnaku. She is occasionally regarded as a consort of Nergal. In some passages, she is also known as a demon of irrevocable curses. Mamitu is supposedly related to the Babylonian god Anu. Other spellings: Mammitu, Mammetum, Mammetu[citation needed]
