Isis is the daughter of Geb and Nut. She is the twin sister of Nepthys (the sister-wife of Set). Her brother Osirus is her husband, and after his death, she conceives the child Horus the Younger with him using magical means. Isis is a goddess of magic and healing. She is typically depicted as a human with a throne-shaped headpiece, as she is the "Queen of Heaven." Isis had a very powerful cult following, and she assimilated the traits and followers of several lesser goddesses, including Hathor, Mut, Selket, and Sekhmet. Indeed, after the assimilation of Hathor, Isis is then depicted wearing the cow-horns-and-sun-disc headpiece usually associated with Hathor. The Isis cult even had a significant impact on ancient Greece and Rome. It was finally banned by Christians in the 6th century A.D.
