Egyptian Childbirth Goddess
Also known as Reret-Weret
Not a porcine Miss Piggy but one of hippopotamine proportions
The name means ‘sow’ — she is 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’.
