Egyptian Goddess of the future, prosperity and abundance

Her name seems to have the meaning of nurturing or raising a child, and she was both a goddess associated with motherhood and the tutelary deity of the Pharaoh. Her gaze was said to have the power to vanquish all enemies and also to ensure the fertility of the crops and the bounty of the harvest. She was associated with the magical properties believed to inhere in the linen bandages that wrapped the dead and was known at Edfu as the ‘mistress of the robes.’

In the Greco-Roman period she was worshipped as the goddess Hermouthis, in which form she came to be combined with Isis.
