6253 in the Hebrew lexicon represents Ashtoreth עַשְׁתֹּרֶת (hash-tour-ret by my ear).

Meaning 'star' Ashtoreth/ Ishtar (Assyrian)/ Astarte (Greek) was a female war and fertility goddess associated with twilight*. Later on she became a he and was, quite literally, demonised as seen below as 'Astaroth'.

Illustration from the Dictionnaire Infernal (1818).

Depictions go from this to this vaguely owl-headed figure@ to these to this to this (Inanna's journey to the underworld)# to

The Burney Relief (British Museum)

...whether it represents Lilitu, Inanna/Ishtar, or Ereshkigal is under debate. The authenticity of the object has been questioned from its first appearance in the 1930s, but opinion has generally moved in its favour over the subsequent decades.

Queen of the Night Relief

I reckon it's an Edwardian fake but that's largely based on it being too pretty, too detailed, too art deco and in too good condition rather than any actual knowledge of ancient Mesopotamian art. That and the fact that she's acquired what are definitely wings not some form of regalia/clothing. It mixes the wings of Lilitu (Lilith) with the lions of Ashtoreth (or was that her sister Ereshkigal queen of the underworld) and throws in some owls and taloned feet for good measure.

* the condition of illumination not the godawful sparkly vampire thing.
She has been known as the deified morning and/or evening star.

@ and is therefore surely more likely a representation of Moloch (the Cananite angel of death)?


btw both Gates of Ishtar and Astarte are metal bands of no particular merit - the former are quite good until the 'cookie monster' vocalist starts up and the latter are similarly in need of vocal talent and otherwise tight but uninspiring.

Anyway 6253 = Ashtoreth
