Volume IV Plate 12 - A Column from The Temple of Hathor at Dendera ~ This column is one of twenty four found in the hypostyle hall of the temple dedicated to Hathor, the patroness of earthly love, the goddess of healing, and the great feminine source of all nourishment. Hathor is usually shown as a cow, or a woman with cow's horns between which are the solar disc and two feathers, but in this temple, her face ornaments the top of each column. The base of the column is decorated with Nile gods.
