Egyptian Fish Goddess 🐟

Also known as Hat-Mehit, Hatmehyt, Het-Mehit, Hetmehit

Fish Goddess

She wears a fish on her head and looks after everything with fins.

She’s something of a rarity as the Egyptians preferred to eat fish rather than worship them.

Her husband is the Ram God Banebdjetet, although it’s hard to see what they could possibly have in common.
