Abstract

Description

Amulets were charms worn as talismans to protect against evil or injury. This amulet depicts Hathor, the cow-headed goddess of beauty and joy, and includes a cartouche (an oblong-shaped enclosure that contained a god or kings name) of Thutmosis III, who ruled Egypt from 14791425 BCE. During the Third Intermediate Period, the name of Thutmosis III came to be associated with magic and power.
