Description Isis was one of the most popular goddesses in Ancient Egypt. She was the goddess of kingship, wife of the mythical king and lord of the Netherworld, Osiris, and the mother of Horus. Her magical powers were unequalled and could even overcome death. This figure shows Isis with the crown of the goddess Hathor, who was often associated with Isis. The crown is composed of cow-horns and a sun-disk.
