The daughter of HORUS and HATHOR, she is the meet-and-greet deity who welcomes deceased spirits at the gates of the Underworld.
You might expect her to be sitting at a desk when you arrive. But no. She perches in a tree and watches out for her husband AKEN bringing new recruits.
When you arrive at the Underworld she offers you bread and water. With her regal demeanour you’d expect something a bit more refined. Like a nice cup of tea.
