RERET
Also known as RERET-WERET

A picture showing the legend of RERET taken from our Egyptian mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Egyptian Gods, Egyptian Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

The name means 'sow' — she is not a porcine Miss Piggy but one of hippopotamine proportions.

As an alternate form of TAWERET, she is not just there as a curiosity — she has charge of her very own constellation of Draco and has imperishable circumpolar stars to revolve around her — one of which is the ancient pole star Thuban.

This sometime give rise to the use of her full name of Reret-Weret which means 'The Great Sow'. She would certainly not take kindly to 'Miss Hippo'.
