Goddess of Hospitality at the Underworld reception desk

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 demeanor you’d expect something a bit more refined. Like a nice cup of tea.
