Description

Hathor is an ancient Egyptian goddess who personified the principles of joy, feminine love, and motherhood.  She was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of ancient Egypt. Hathor was worshiped by royalty and common people alike. In tomb paintings, she is often depicted as “Mistress of the West”, welcoming the dead into the next life. In other roles, she was a goddess of music, dance, foreign lands, and fertility. She was believed to assist women in childbirth.  She was also believed to be the patron goddess of miners.

The cult of Hathor predates the historic period, and the roots of devotion to her are therefore difficult to trace. Though it may be a development of predynastic cults that venerated fertility, and nature in general, represented by cows.
