Isis and Hathor equated

“For the world is something perceptible and visible, and Isis is sometimes called Muth, and again Athyri or Methyer. By the first of these names they signify “mother,” by the second the mundane house of Horus, the place and receptacle of generation, as Plato has it, and the third is compounded of “full” and “cause”; for the material of the world is full, and is associated with the good and pure and orderly.” – Plutarch, On Isis and Osiris 374b
