Seshat counts years for the king

 

 on a temple wall in Luxor

 
 

Photograph from Werner Forman and Steven Quirke: “Hieroglyphs & the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt”, University of Oklahoma Press, 1996, page 11, posted with permission.

This relief in the Amun temple at Luxor dates from around 1250 BCE and shows Seshat, the goddess of temple geometry and scribal arts, inscribing regnal years for the king on the palm-leaf rib which had long served for tallying up the years and so had become the hieroglyph for "year".

The emblem in Seshat's head-dress identified the major tools of her temple layout trade, as explained in the caption to the enlarged view of this telltale detail.
