Greek mythology, Asteria (; Ancient Greek: Ἀστερία, "of the stars, starry one") was a name attributed to the following eleven individuals:
Asteria, a Titaness.  Asteria or
Astris, daughter of Helios and Clymene or Ceto, one of the Heliades. She married the river god Hydaspes (the modern Jhelum River) and became mother of Deriades, king in India. Asteria, one of the
Danaïdes, daughters of Danaus who, with one exception, murdered their husbands on their wedding nights. She was, briefly, the bride of Chaetus.  Asteria, one of the
Alkyonides. Along with her sisters, she flung herself into the sea and was transformed into a kingfisher.  Asteria, daughter of
Hydeus, was the mother of Hydissos by Bellerophon. Her son is known for having founded a city in Caria which was named after him.  Asteria, daughter of
Coronus, and Apollo were possible parents of the seer Idmon.  Asteria
or  Asterodia, mother of  Crisus and Panopeus by Phocus. Asteria, daughter of
Teucer and Eune of Cyprus.  Asteria, the ninth
Amazon killed by Heracles when he came for Hippolyte's girdle.  Asteria, an Athenian maiden who was one of the would-be sacrificial victims of Minotaur, portrayed in a vase painting. 
Christoph Willibald Gluck gave the name Asteria to one of the characters in his 1765 opera , though the name did not appear in Telemaco Homer's on which the opera was based.
