NEPHTHYSAlso known as NEB-HUT, NEBTHET
Extremely sympathetic Egyptian Funerary Goddess
NEPHTHYS is a consolatory deity who comforts and advises those left behind when someone passes on. She also gives support to the souls of the dead as they embark on their journey to the afterlife.She's the daughter of GEB and NUT, sister of ISIS and OSIRIS, and — according to some sources — ANUBIS's mum.
She often has trouble with her hair. At times it seems to resemble the mummy wrappings of the dead and she has to resort to wearing a basket on her head.
