Marici

Marici The three heads in any case do not imply three bodies in the case of Marici or of three-faced Maya (mother of Buddha). An Egyptian goddess with a human face and the face of a dog and of a goat or cow is an exact parallel to uniform three-headed Marici. Hermes Is three heads merely meant that he watched all ways, as Janus watches two ways, and the Zeus Herkaios of Argos had three eyes for the same reason. http://www.ubfellowship.org/sources/hopkins_oer_xvii.htm
