The Goddess in Egypt: Aset / Isis

Review "Aset / Isis".

Osiris and Aset
From the Sarcophagus of Psusennes 1 (early 10th century BCE), showing Osiris enthroned with Aset and Nephthys behind the throne. From National Museum, Cairo.

Aset in heiroglyphics "Aset’s name, in hieroglyphs, contains the symbols for a throne and an egg. In her earliest depictions, Aset’s headdress is a throne, although later, after she had been syncretised with Hathor, she wore the sun-disc and horn headdress of the latter deity as well, with the throne on top of the disc.186 Again this parallels Inanna, whose headdress was of horns.'" ~ Why Men Made God, Page 140.
