HYMN TO THE GODDESS HATHOR - from Her Sanctuary at Iunet/Dendera (Dendera I-80; cfr.S.Cauville):
Hathor, Lady of Iunet,
Your beautiful face is pleased by the King of Upper and Lower Egypt.
The South, the North, the West, and the East pay You homage,
and they make adorations to You.
You illuminate the Two Lands with the rays of Your Eye.
The Gods rejoice for You when You appear.
Thoth satisfies You with His glorifications and He raises His arms to
You, carrying the sistrum.
Your Father Ra adores You,
His face rejoices in hearing Your Name.
The Goddesses come to You bowing Their heads....
