Fortiter et Fecte Annie Horniman, She bankrolled plays by Yeats and Farr, employed MacGregor Mathers as a curator, and was one of the financial backers of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin

Vestigia Nulla Retrosum Moina Mathers, this time as a priestess of Isis, in about 1900. Back when she was in art school, in the late 1880s, she met and became friends with Florence Farr, and Annie Horniman. The three of them used to hang out in the British Museum, dabbling in Egyptology and mystical books. By a strange coincidence Mathers, Yeats, Waite, and Machen were know to hang out there at the same time, looking for similar books.
