"Limestone temple-relief of Ptolemy I offering to Hathor: Ptolemy I wears a bag wig and a single string of beads, and presents to Hathor the heraldic plants of Upper and Lower Egypt, respectively a lily-like sedge and a papyrus. The plants, which are rendered as stiff little baubles, may well depict royal gifts to the temple, made of gold and other precious materials. Hathor holds the papyrus scepter of a goddess and wears a vulture cap, topped by a platform that supported her emblematic cow horns and sun disk. Traces of paint survive."
