RENENET
Also known as ERNUTET, RENENUTET

Goddess of Fortune and Prosperity.

Head-wise, anything from a lion to a snake. She had a hand, or rather a paw, or a forked tongue, in harvesting, possibly with wine in mind. And when did you last see 'Egypt' on a wine bottle?

As part of the prosperity deal, she also nourishes the newborn. Particularly if they have suitably rich parents.

Her name has about twenty variations in spelling at the last count. If it begins with 'R' and is to do with suckling anything from royal children to souls of the dead it is probably her. Also associated with, or may even be, the almost identical SHAI.

To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.
