Nikkal is a Goddess of Ugarit, Canaan, and later of Phoenicia. She is a Goddess of Orchards, whose name means "Great Lady and Fruitful." She is daughter of Khirkhibi, the Summer's King, and is married to the Moon God Yarikh, who gifted her with necklaces of lapis-lazuli. The oldest complete annotated piece of ancient music is a Hurrian song, a hymn in Ugaritic cuneiform syllabic writing which was dedicated to Nikkal. Anne Draffkorn Kilmer gave it the title of "The Hymn to Nikkal" IN 1974.
