Latest revision as of 11:34, September 4, 2018

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.

Invocations or mentions of Astoreth, especially during the Hyborian Age, are likely to be in fact a misspelling or one of the alternate spellings of Ashtoreth.

It is possible that the account of Astoreth being a fallen angel cast out of Heaven was an erroneous perception of Inanna.

Hyborian age

Astoreth was worshiped in Shem,[2] Khauran[3] and in other cities of the desert,[4] as well as by Zingarans.[5]



It is unknown if the fallen angel Astoreth referenced in the Angels' entry of the Marvel Zombies Handbook #1 exist or is one among many alternate spellings of Ashtoreth / Ishtar / Inanna.
