Hathor and Isis in Byblos in the Second and First Millennia BCE

Abstract

The Egyptian goddesses Hathor and Isis both appear in Byblos under various guises and circumstances during the second and first millennia BCE. In fact, Hathor, who received cult in many foreign locales, is attested in Byblos in the third millennium. This discussion explores the presence of each of these deities in Byblos after describing their respective Egyptian backgrounds, the circumstances under which is attested in Byblos, how and why each arrived there, and instances when, despite some uncertainty, one or the other is assumed to have been present.
