English: Hathor, ancient Egyptian goddess. Hathor is depicted in many forms, most commonly as a woman with cow-horns and sun disk. Isis could also be depicted in this form, and the two can only be surely distinguished by the inscription. In other forms, Hathor was depicted wearing the hieroglyph for 'west', or in a fully bovine form. Hathor is often shown holding the was scepter.[1] This image is partially based on images of Hathor from the tomb of Nefertari, en:QV66.
