Selket Scorpio

We see here Egyptian ancient (1342 B.C.E.) scorpion goddess, Selket. The picture was taken at the Louvre, Paris, and is courtesy of “that james” from Flickr. Selket is also called Serqet, Serket, Selqet, Selkit, Selkis. Selket was the ancient goddess of magic and the underworld.
Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend On their essay Hamlet's Mill claim that Scorpio is a cross-cultural image:
That fits "Mother Scorpion" of Nicaragua and the "Old goddess with the scorpion tail" of the Maya as it also fits the Scorpion-goddess Selket-Serqet of ancient Egypt and the Ishara tam.tim of the Babylonians. Ishara of the sea, goddess of the constellation Scorpius, was also called "Lady of the Rivers"

The Scorpion goddess drawing appears in the Maya Codex Tro-Cortesianus
