The First Chaldaean Empire and the Hyksos in Egypt
ATS Bible DictionaryAshtaroth-Karnaim
Two-horned Astartes, Genesis 14:5, or simply Ashtaroth, De 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.
