Resheph

According to Wikipedia,

Resheph was a Semitic god of plague and war. He bore the head of a gazelle on his forehead and was an important member of the pantheon of Ugarit though not mentioned in Ugaritic mythological texts.

Christopher Siren identifies Resheph as a Mesopotamian God of pestilence (source).

This is not the first time Mesopotamianism has cropped up in speculation around Supernatural's mytharc; there's a theory that Dean's Amulet is a Mesopotamian figure.
