is an odd goddess of the highest degree. She is sometimes
equated with hathor. There are very few statues and even fewer paintings
of this goddess. She is said to have come to Earth after Ra declared

in her own right, but more people simply respected the power of the goddess
and tried to stay out of her disfavor.
