Malakbel
Malakbêl was a sun deity of the city of Palmyra in pre-Islamic Syria. The meaning, in Aramaic, is “Messenger of Baal" or "Messenger, or Angel, of the Lord".

The Greek identified Malakbel with Hermes, and the Romans with Sol. He was also similar to the Babylonian sun god Shamash.

Malakbel is usually accompanied by the Moon god Aglibol, and sometimes the goddess Allat. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malak-bel
