menat - an intricately beaded necklace, usually made with semi-precious stones sacred to Hathor (namely turquoise, malachite and lapis lazuli) that was clasped together with a bronze disc with a handle so it could alternately be used as a type of rattle and a necklace. The menet was looked upon as perhaps the most potent of the ritual implements of Hathor as when it was worn it represented one who had gained her powers or had become like Hathor.
