Seller: antiq90 (591) 100%, Location: 1, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 174010556688 Syro Hittite Terracotta Head of Astarte / Goddess, ca. 2nd - 1st Millennium BCE. 42.8 mmAstarte is the Greek form of the name Ashtart, who, along with Asherah and Anath, was one of the three great goddesses of the Canaanite pantheon. In Canaanite religion she was associated primarily with love and fertility, playing the role of divine courtesan, for example, in mythological texts from the Late Bronze Age (c. 1550–1200 B.C.E.) city-state of Ugarit (in western Syria). Texts from the middle and late first millennium B.C.E., by equating Astarte with the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, further indicate Astarte’s character as a goddess of sexual love. I compelled by the presence of a female divine figure in an otherwise male-dominated religious environment
