Very little information on this particulardeity. It is said that she is an ancient goddess of Egyptian mythology often referred to as the wife of Horus. Ta-Bitjet is a scorpion goddess. The scorpion was sacred to Isis, who was thought to have been protected by scorpions.(story of the seven scorpions) "And with me came the seven scorpions, and their names were; Tefen and Befen, Mestet and Mestetef, Petet, Thetet, and Matet. Behind me were Tefen and Befen..." She uses a number of magical medicinal spells against poisonous bites. The power of the spell relates to the bleeding caused by the loss of her virginity when Horus took hold of her upon an Ebony bed.



She too is quite an anciet deity.Her name means the "good or beautiful sister".

She was the consort of Haroeris/Har-wer who is Horus the Elder after the battle with his uncle Set. As we all know he then became the king of Egypt. In Kom Ombo, which is northern Egypt, Haroeris/Har-wer was thought of as the son of the god Re, and therefore was identical with the sky god, Shu. His image is that of a falcon.


They are the parents of Panebtawy in the western sanctuary of Kom Ombo temple. She is only a colorless manifestation of Hathor in the role of divine wife.



Tayet, Tait

A highly significant goddess that seems to be overlooked by history. Andagain, not a whole lot of information on these goddesses. It could be that her identity was so easily consumed by those of Neith, Isis, Nephthys and others.

It seems that her name originates from the word "shroud".

One of the most pivital of her roles was providing woven linen clothfor embalming the dead. Tayet was the patroness of weavers,clothing-makers, and those who wrapped mummies. As a goddess ofweaving, Tayet’s role was to protect the woven cloth used for embalming, assuring its purity and perfection. It is said that she also weaved the valance which hung in the tent of purification where the ritual of embalmment was carried out. The "Land of Tayet" was a term for the mummy wrappings. In daily life, linen gauze was used sparingly for medical purposes.


It seems that she was originally viewed as the spiritual mother of the pharaoh and the protector of his physical body. During the Old Kingdom she was referenced in spells and prayers in the Pyramid Texts which were intended to protect the corpse of the king. However, as time progressed she was increasingly associated with linen bandages and with the "Wab" priests (sometimes known as the purification priests) who wore fine linen when discharging their duties.


Old Kingdom a prayer was addressed to the goddess to clothe the king and lift him up to the sky, "guarding his head and gathering his bones."

In the story of Sinuhe* the pharaoh Senusret invites the elderly Sinuhe to return to Egypt and promises him that he will be buried at home with all of the usual personal clothing and accessories, including "the wrappings from the hand of Tayet".

Linen dressings were also used to dress wounds. It was thought that Tayet could protect the injured person from a blood hemorrhage and ensure the cleanliness of the wound. Hence she represented purity and perfection.


Egyptians have always taken great pride in their excellent linens, after all. Tayet possessed an important cult alongside the god Min at Akhmim--an ancient center of linen production. As a goddess associated with weaving the bandages used in mummification.

Some say that Tayet was honored at Busiris and Abydos, where she was closely identified with Nephthys and Isis, in their forms as "Chentayet goddesses."


The tale opens as Sinuhe speaks from his own tomb. Thus the end of the story is already known. Sinuhe dies and is properly buried in Egypt. The tale begins with the death of the king Amenemhat (whowe know from the 'Teaching of Amenemhat' was assassinated).Sinuhe at this point is returning from a campaign in Libya with theeldest son of the king (most notably the future king Senusret I). Heover hears a messenger speaking of another brother who also heard of the news and is returning and in a blind panic flees the country.Scholars have attempted to give a reason for this flight but it is impossible to do so. Possibly, the fact that this person was serving inthe royal harem and thus might have been liable to have known about any rumour there of plotting against the king may be ofimportance. Sinuhe was momentarily taken over by the forces of' chaos,' there was no logic behind his actions. Upon entering Syria,he marries the daughter of an Asiatic chieftain, who adopts him. Helater rises to power within his adopted tribe and returns to Egypt at the invitation of Senusret. The king accepts that Sinuhe had not control over his actions and blames the fallibility of the human heart.He himself fears nothing, is like a god incarnate on earth and maintains the order (Ma'at) in Egypt outside of which all life is pointless.
