This form had a long history from the beginning of the New Kingdom. But especially with the Late Period, a four-sided capital or an abacus (the uppermost column element, above the capital) with Hathor-emblems on each side becomes widely used, and in these cases the term sistrum-column is no longer correct. These Hathor columns with representations on four sides relate to an understanding of Hathor as a cosmic and powerful goddess, her face directed to the four corners of the earth.Hathor columns were particularly favoured at temples connected with goddesses or with mammisi-temples ( “birth houses”), which were devoted to the birth of the divine son of a goddess. However, smaller versions like this one appear that must have been used in connection with kiosks or baldachins or other small structures, or may even have served as cult emblems themselves to judge from the representations shown on some temple naoi.
