Mebh was the legendary warrior queen of Connaught. In the Cattle Raid of Cooley, she led her forces in the battle against those of Ulster and Cuchulain in an attempt to steal the brown bull thereby increasing her wealth. Unlike the other war goddesses who used their magical powers, she fought with weapons.  The first mention of Medb is in the Cave of Cruachan in the form of an Ogham inscription on the lintel stone placed in the cave during the 4th or 5th century. This cave was known as the gateway to the otherworld and thought to be a suitable abode of the Morrigan. 
I have designed what I imagine to be the type of crown she would have worn with two decorated bullhorns.
