IPTC INFO
Caption"The attributes of a marine deity may have been bestowed on Isis by the sea-faring Greeks of Alexandria. They are quite foreign to her original character and to the habits of the Egyptians who had no love of the sea. On this hypothesis Sirius the bright star of Isis which on July mornings rises from the glassy waves of the eastern Mediterranean a harbinger of halcyon weather to mariners was the true Stella Maris “the Star of the Sea.” ____________________ 2 Chapter 41.
