Em hotep, Lisbeth!

I'm not sure we've met before on the forums, so hello and congrats on graduating the beginner's class! Set truly is amazing and I'm so glad to hear you have such a good relationship with Him! (And I'm always open to chatting.)  8)

Senebty and I look forward to seeing you around!

Em hotep, Bear! This is antlering! Glad to see another Hippo kid here! ^^

I hope you enjoy the Beginners' Class! I think it's a worthwhile experience, regardless of what decision you make afterwards! Let me know if you have any questions or wanna chat about Mama. (Especially Taweret-Sekhmet...I have not met her in that form yet!) <3

Senebty!  8)

Em hotep, Sedjfai!

Thank you so much for this information! I'll definitely need to note down different renderings of Ipet, as I haven't paid close attention to variations before. I'm really fascinated by this particular vulture-headed form She's taken!

(And the very thought of elision gives me a sudden and harrowing flashback to ancient Chinese lit class...I don't want to think about it! ;) )

Thanks again and senebty!

Em hotep!

While doing some research on the goddess Opet, I stumbled across a few reliefs from the Main Sanctuary of Amun-Ra in the Temple of Hatshepsut (at Deir el Bahari). These two reliefs each have two hippo-goddesses, but the description is muddled or incomplete for any caption I can find. I was hoping someone could take a look and let me know if the hieroglyphs identify any of the goddesses, or that someone might already know Who is in these reliefs.

Seeing as this is Thebes, I'm guessing at least one goddess in each relief is Opet, but I'm not sure about the others.

Image 1 (this link has a caption that sounds like a strange transliteration error - it identifies Neith, Opet, "Hor Hijen," and "Hirent" (with Hirent being the vulture-headed hippo goddess):

I'm not sure if the images are clear enough for the hieroglyphs to be read, but I appreciate any help I can get! Thanks and senebty!

Em hotep, friend!

Many prayers for comfort and relief during this time. I wish for the best possible news for your dad. May Set and Khonsu grant you strength, and may Wepwawet open doors for you.

Em hotep, Redi!  8)

Ipet is considered to be the oldest recorded individual out of the continuum of female hippo deities. She is rarely delineated from Taweret or Reret, but I've found in her iconography that she can occasionally be distinguished by her carrying a torch in one paw (hand?).

Ipet's torch is part of her funerary function, which seems to be unique to her until Taweret begins appearing in tombs and mortuary rituals much later. In fact, I would consider Ipet primarily a funerary deity:

  • In Pyramid Text utterance 269, Ipet serves as the mother of the dead king as he passes into the afterlife, suckling him.
  • In the Book of the Dead Spell 137b, Ipet uses her torch to scare away Set in the Duat (either from the deceased king or Ra's barque, I'm not sure off the top of my head).
  • In BOTD/Papyrus of Ani Spell 186, Ipet with her torch is shown in front of Hethert and behind an enshrined Sokar-Wesir (image linked later).

The torch strongly differentiates Ipet, the "mother of fire," from Taweret, "of pure water." During the Greco-Roman period, the Hellenes at Oxyrhynchus (Taweret's cult center) gave Taweret the epithet pyraithes, or fire-kindler; since this is an extremely late source at a time when Taweret was the singular name for all female hippo deities, I personally assume this is a name of Ipet, or Ipet-as-Taweret.

Reret, for the sake of discussion, is an astral deity who makes up the modern constellation Draco. She is strongly associated with Set because she subdues him in the heavens (binding him as a constellation) after the death of Wesir. And while Taweret subsumes the roles of all hippo goddesses in later times, she seems to be distinguished earlier as a deity of the waters of purification, as well as a deity of birth and fertility - she watches over the life of a human, while Ipet watches over death.

Hope that helped! Senebty! <3
