Two-horned Astartes, Genesis 14:5 , or simply Ashtaroth, Deuteronomy 1:4 , a city of Og, king of Ashan, beyond Jordan. The name is doubtless derived from the goddess Ashtoreth or Astarte, whose images were adored there under the figure of a female with a crescent, or horns. It was in the limits of the half tribe of Manasseh, Joshua 13:31; and was a Levitical city, 1 Chronicles 6:71 . It is also called Beeshterah, Joshua 21:27 .
