Invocations or mentions of "Astoreth", especially during the Hyborian Age, are likely to be in fact be a misspelling or one of the alternate spellings of Ashtoreth, another name of the goddess Inanna / Ishtar.


Origins

Astoreth was an angel living in Heaven.

According to unconfirmed sources, Astoreth became a fallen angel, cast out of Heaven,[1] possibly for participating in Lucifer's rebellion.

Hyborian age

Astoreth was worshiped in Shem,[2] Khauran[3] and in other cities of the desert.[4]
