Her symbols were the lion, the horse, the sphinx, the dove, and a star within a circle indicating the planet Venus.
‘Ashtart was also identified with the goddess Sekhmet but seemingly more often conflated, at least in part, with Isis to judge from the many images found of ‘Ashtart suckling a small child.
In the description of the Phoenician pantheon ascribed to Sanchuniathon ‘Ashtart appears as a daughter of Sky and Earth and sister of the god El.

 Science Fair Projects - Atargatis
The name ‘Atar‘atah is a compound of two divine names: the first part is a form of the Ugaritic ‘Athtart, Himyaritic ‘Athtar, the equivalent of the Old Testament ‘Ashtoreth, the Phoenician ‘Ashtart rendered in Greek as Astarte.
In many cases Atargatis and ‘Ashtart and other goddesses who once had independent cults and mythologies became fused to such an extent as to be indistinguishable.
This fusion is exemplified by the Carnion temple, which is probably identical with the famous temple of ‘Ashtart at Ashtaroth-Karnaim.

In "Nikkal and the Kotharat" the Kotharat are first summoned to oversee the birth of a son to Yarikh the moon-god and the goddess Nikkal and then summoned a second time to bless the human girl Prbkht for her forthcoming marriage.
Sanchuniathon refers to group seven daughters of El by ‘Ashtart whose Phoenician name is not given but who are called the Titantides or Artemides in Greek.
That the Greek goddess Artemis was often worshipped as a birth goddess suggests these seven Artemides are so called because they were also birth goddesses.

 The Ultimate Ba`alat Gebal - American History Information Guide and Reference
She was generally identified with the pan-Semitic goddess ‘Ashtar and so equated with the Greek goddess Aphrodite.
However Sanchuniathon equates her with the Greek goddess Dione and presents her as a sister of ‘Ashtart (Aphrodite) and Rhea (who is probably Asherah), all three being wives of El.
Ba‘alat Gebal was distinguished in iconography from ‘Ashtart or other aspects of ‘Ashtart or similar goddesses by two, tall, upright feathers in her headdress.

 Asherah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
She is clearly distinguished from ʿAshtart (better known in English as Astarte).
She is also called Elat (the feminine form of El) and Qodesh 'Holiness'.
This Qudshu seems not to be either ʿAshtart or ʿAnat as both those goddesses appear under their own names and with quite different iconography and appear in at least one pictorial representation along with Qudshu.

 Cultic Temple Prostitution and Homosexuality, A Christian Hoax?
First a bit of background.  The Bible itself tells us that Ashtart (Asherah, etc.) was worshiped even in temple of Jerusalem for about 2/3 of the time it stood.
And it seems to be the favorite verse of those who use the Bible to justify prejudice and discrimination against homosexuals.
The Canaanite god of the sun, Baal and his consort, the fertility goddess Ashtart (Ashtoreth, etc.)  were commonly worshipped in the area.  The term "toevah" appears throughout the Law to denounce idolatrous practices.

3, 1998 Arco is negotiating further development of its Ashtart offshore oil field with the Tunisian government, which would require an investment of about $ 400 mm.

 Ishtar biography
It is uncertain whether she was originally the local numen of some Akkadian community in Babylonia or a goddess worshiped by the Akkadians before they invaded this country.
The circumstance that the sex varies, so that Athtar, Atar, Astar, and probably Ashtar represent a male deity, Ashtart a female, and Ishtar either a male or a female, seems to point to an object that could be conceived of as either.
Such an object is the planet Venus, which, like sun and moon, is now male, now female, and with which the Arabian Atarsamain and the Canaanitish Ashtart are closely related as Ishtar.

 Deity Temple, Room 2 - More Canaanite Deities
Her arms are bent at the elbow and in each hand she holds either a flower, variously called a lily or a lotus, a "bouquet" of indeterminate plants, or a snake.
As qadesh is an epithet, not a name, it is not clear which Canaanite goddess She is. She may be an aspect of either ´Asherah, `Anat, or `Ashtart or She may represent a combination of ´Asherah, `Anat, and `Ashtart.
While scholars today sometimes confuse the various goddesses, it is clear that in the past, in fact, these goddesses were concatenated as well, a single goddess emerging were previously there had been two or three.

 IngentaConnect A Reconsideration of the Aphrodite-Ashtart Syncretism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-07-20)
Scholars have long recognized a one-to-one correspondence, or interpretatio syncretism, between the Greek goddess Aphrodite and the Phoenician goddess Ashtart (Astarte).
The origin of this syncretism is usually attributed to the eastern origins of Aphrodite herself, whereby the Greek goddess evolved out of the Phoenician, as is suggested as early as the writings of Herodotos.
As a result, the identification between Aphrodite and Ashtart was quite general, and both goddesses were syncretized not only with each other, but with a full range of Mediterranean goddesses.

Jezebel had the prophets of Jehovah killed, whereupon Elijah, the servant of the Lord, annihilated her 450 priests, which in turn ticked off Jezebel so much that she threatened to destroy Elijah.
