Abraham, Terah and the idols
The historical figure of Abraham
Assuming that the father of the three current monotheist religions did really exist, he should have lived, according to the first historians having studied that issue, in the 20th century BC, date that other historians will descend finally to 18th century BC.

Lagamar being a goddess of the elamite pantheon, we can assume Kudur Lagamar was, as king, his servant.
According to James Bell
the goddess Lagamal (written also Lagamar) was a goddess of the hells who, with her conterpart Ishnikarab, welcomed and judged the dead on their arrival into the realm of dead.
