Egypt: Wosret - Goddess of Thebes


Wosret was an ancient goddess of Thebes whose name means "the powerful". Possibly she was the earliest consort of Amun at Karnak, preceding Mut. Certainly Middle Kingdom pharaohs of Theban origins take her name as an element in their own, such as Sen-Wosret, meaning "man belonging to Wosret".
