Egyptian Literature Goddess

Also known as SEŠAT

Well-read deity of books and libraries

The ‘Queen of the Bookroom’. The daughter of THOTH, she’s the holy Head Librarian of Egyptian mythology. She keeps all the books for the Gods, looks after tax returns and is also a dab hand at Architecture, Astronomy and Archives. Her writing is extremely neat.

Of course she is extremely literate, and would be of enormous help in maintaining our Holy Database. We must drop her an email sometime.

She also wears a rather fetching leopardskin robe, which so far hasn’t really caught on in librarian circles.
