An alternative to “his Asherah,” which curiously refers to a proper name with the possessive “his,” is “Asherata,” a variation on the Biblical name Asherah that is attested at Ekron during the Iron Age. For new evidence in favor of this option, see Richard Hess, “Yahweh and His Asherah? Epigraphic Evidence for Religious Pluralism in Old Testament Times,” One God, One Lord in a World of Religious Pluralism, ed. Bruce Winter and David Wright (Cambridge: Tyndale House, 1991) pp. 5–33. For Asherat(a) at Ekron, see Seymour Gitin, “Ekron of the Philistines: Part II,” BAR 16:02.
