I looked through several sources, and they may use either "Kothar" or "Kothar-wa-Ḫasis" to refer to a craftsman god who is involved in the myth of the death of Aqhat. So yes, they are the same god. There's nothing in that article that isn't already included in this one, so I'm turning it into a redirect that leads here. A. Parrot (talk) 19:04, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
