"Prostitution from the temple was typical Babylonian"

Temple prostitution existed in other cultures such as Greece. Temple of Aphrodite at Corinth must have been mastered by 1,000 prostitutes. Everything was for the benefit of the temple. Of course, the temple prostitutes were slaves - compared to Babylon where, as Herodotus reported indignantly, each woman had to sleep with a stranger at least once in life, into the temple Ishtar and give everything that cash in to the temple. Greeks and Jews regarded this practice as a poison to morality.
