Abstract: 

The present article discusses the process of transformation of the character of an ancient goddess of water. In the age of prehistory and as a result of interaction of myths, the beliefs and rites about the water goddess were propagated in Mesopotamia. In Iran and in the process of formation of the character of the water goddess, this myth adapted herself to male-dominated patterns of Indo-Iranian tribes and to the current social traditions of Iran, on the other hand, according to the Gussans (poets and story-tellers) of Parthian (Arsacids) and Kushans, she lost her situation and descended from her divine place. Her roots and divine origin were forgotten, and, finally, for belittling women and other various changes, she acquired new characteristics and was put in the limelight as Sudabeh. Also, Dumuzi, the god of vegetation and connected with the Mesopotamian water goddess, transformed to two characters in Iranian mythology: Siyavash that his role is like the Mesopotamian murdered god, and Kei-Khosrow that, as a god, gives new life to Siyavash. These characters, manifest in Shahnameh of Abumansuri in the story of Siyavash and Sudabeh, and then through that book they appear in Shahnameh of Ferdowsi.
