It is pretty certainly from the Euphrates and Tigris region. I could tell you more if I could see the cuneiform on the background on one of the images.

As far as the cross, the wheel cross (as seen here), was a symbol of the sun in Assyrian culture.

there's a 'translation' here at this link
I don't know how accurate though ... but I can say I'm not impressed

Depending on the festival celebrated the king took different attributes of different gods. In the primal Assyrian culture it went so far that he actually "made a child" to mother earth on a certain festival.... naturally it was not mother Earth but a priestess and he was no god either.... but looks like the people loved the spectacle (we may see it as the culture that invented the "peep-show".

I haven't had a chance to read about the festivals that you mention here, but I think we should not apply our 'definitions' regarding sex to them in those days.
I believe the nomadic tribes of those age still practice the 'fertility' festivals where virgin young boys and girls from various different tribes participated during some annual 'Holy' Festival ... just to keep in breeding problems in check.

Seeing that is is as good as getting the king set in stone I would expect the importance of the gods they revered would be set in stone with the kings too,

The Tomb of God:
The Body of Jesus and the Solution to a 2,000-Year-Old Mystery

Quote

It began as an attempt to solve an intriguing historical puzzle. But years of painstaking research revealed something more: the exact geographical location of Christ's tomb, in southern France. In The Tomb of God, Richard Andrews and Paul Schellenberger take you along step-by-step as they track down the most closely guarded secret of the last two millennia. Their starting point is Rennes-le-Chateau, a small village in France's Languedoc region that is at the center of legends about a fabulous treasure - the Ark of the Covenant, according to some; the Holy Grail, according to others. Late last century, a village priest discovered encrypted parchments secreted in the altar of the local church. What these parchments mean - and how they relate to the fabled treasure - has long been the subject of scholarly debate. But now Andrews and Schellenberger provide the answers - and in the process uncover Christianity's secret history.

There's a section in it that puts out all the angles in a nice parade.

You are encountering a Evolving Mythology as encountered in the Rig Veda, where Gods ascended pinancles of Fame and were later neglected by the same peoples. It is what leads many to believe that these Gods were actually real beings.

I live in a part of the world where I am more than familiar with what you mean ... litearally
What you propose does make sense but not in this instance ,,, the same gods that is being spoken here were revered throughout many generations of 'god/kings'
