The Gods of Ancient Egypt -- Amaunet


Patron of: the northern wind, hidden knowledge, the Pharaoh (especially newly-crowned ones).

Appearance: a serpent or serpent-headed woman bearing the crown of Lower Egypt.

Description: Amaunet is called "the hidden one" and "the mother who is father," and thus is a primordial creation deity with her consort Amun. She was invoked in the accession ceremonies of the pharaohs. She and Amun are the only two that developed major cults outside of their roles as creators. Worship: Cult center of Hermopolis, along with the rest of the Ogdoad.
