Title: Mut epithets
Post by: Demaimuti on October 20, 2020, 07:59:18 am
Do you know any epithets of Mut? I’m trying to work out what links Hethert and Mut, in an effort to understand the whole of Hethert-Mut.

Hethert-Nut for instance is very logical because they are both Mehet Weret (is that phrase right?).

Em hotep, Demai!

This page has some epithets of Mut.  Both Hethert and Mut are 'Eye of Ra', for one thing. (

I'm off to hunt some more....

te Velde, H. "Mut, the Eye of Re", in: Akten des Vierten Internationalen Ägyptologen Kongresses, München 1985, Band 3 = BSAK 3 (Hamburg 1988), 395–403.

The pdf above says

"in the 18th Dynasty-text we often find the usual epithets of Mut such as the Great One (wrt), Mistress of Heaven (nbt t3wy) and Mistress of all the Gods (hnwt ntrw nbw), but not yet Eye of Re (irt-Ra)."

Those usual epithets are common to Hethert, too.  Later in Ramesside times, 'Eye of Ra' is used more.

I am most interested in Mut as Lady of the UnderWorld.
