Astarte (3 syl.)

The lady beloved by Manfred. In order to see and speak to her, the magician entered the hall of Arimaʹnēs, and the spirits called up the phantom of the young lady, which told the count that “to-morrow would end his earthly ills.” When Manfred asked her if she loved him, she sighed “Manfred,” and vanished. (Byron: Manfred.)

“Astarte, my beloved, speak to me.”


Manfred, ii. 4.
