Description

A copper alloy Hathor crown consisting of a sun-disc between the horns of a cow from a statue. The sun-disc and cow horns are usually associated with Hathor. However, other goddesses, particularly Isis, are also shown wearing these headdresses. It was purchased by Wellcome in 1906 from the collection of Robert de Rustafjaell.
