Bat is a very ancient Egyptian Goddess who likely dates back to Predynastic times; that may be Her on both the Narmer and Gerzah palettes.  She is a cow Goddess associated with the stars and sky; the Egyptians associated cows with the stars, perhaps either because they were spotted (they associated the spots on a leopard with the stars as well), or because cows have a star-like whorl of hair on their foreheads.  She is somewhat similar to Hathor, though She may have her origins in a different breed of cattle, as Her horns curl inwards, unlike Hathor's.  She was the Goddess of the sixth nome (province) of Upper Egypt, and in time Her worship was absorbed into Hathor's.
