Meaning & History

In Egyptian mythology she was the goddess of nourishment and the harvest, and as such was worshiped mainly during harvest. She was often depicted as a cobra or as a woman with the head of a cobra. She was sometimes portrayed as the consort of Sobek, Shai, or Geb, with whom she had the snake god Nehebkau. Over time she became increasingly associated with Wadjet (the cobra on the crown of pharaohs), until she eventually became an aspect of Wadjet.
