Asherah

(ăsh`ərə) or

Asheroth

(-rŏth), Canaanite fertility goddess and the wooden cult symbol that represented her. She is the consort of El in the Ugaritic texts.

Asherah

mother of the gods; counterpart of Gaea. [Canaanite Myth.: Benét, 57]

Este hallazgo, de gran importancia, permitiria interpretar esta formacion como una imagen de culto, un betilo o massebah semejante a los documentados en otras cuevas-santuario ibericas, como la cueva votiva hallada en La Albufereta de Alicante (Rubio 1986) donde se representan troncos de arboles huecos en su interior que han sido considerados como ashera (Blazquez 1983: 206), pudiendose relacionar con un culto funerario a los Rephaim (Lagrange 1905: 199; Xella 1987: 150), esto es, a los antepasados heroizados del monarca cuya memoria no ha de ser olvidada ya que, alojados en el mundo subterraneo, su figura perviviria y se manifestaria a traves de este pilar sagrado asegurando a la poblacion la salud, la fecundidad animal y humana y la fertilidad agraria (Caquot 1960: 81 s.
