SOON!!! Will I have trouble sleeping tonight, as I did last night?

Soon! (Yes, excited) :D


Em Hotep!

Do you live in a region with a hot climate, Gleb?  Yuma can get awfully hot, 122F (50C), so naturally I find myself fleeing to the shadows except for the rare times it's cold here.

A little bit off-topic, but while looking for the source of this image (which is CESRAS Russian Academy), I found the mother-load of Hethert images.  One to tease:

Meanwhile, back to the white cobra, Cairo museum CAI JE29637:
A full size image is available at this link.


Em hotep!

I was wandering around online looking for pictures of Mom and happened upon this:

I can't tell enough about the context to say Who it is, but I saw the "white snake" out of the corner of my eye and thought of you. :)

We've had some discussions here lately about Hethert as the Lady of Trees. Specifically, in ancient texts She's called Lady of the Sycamore. There are often depictions of Her with a tree or as a cow coming out of a papyrus thicket. She's also associated with foreign lands, and Hemet has said it's perfectly acceptable to associate Her with more forested locations.

Welcome, Leuans!

Yes, the museum in Florence, Italy has a stela depicting Hathor (Hethert) as a tree.  The identifying glyphs are clear on this one:

I love the details on this one.  The recipient of Hethert's blessings has her little Ba bird there, too.

I recently learned of the god, Igai, via Google search.  He was another god of the oases and linked with Ash, if not Set.

Quoting from the article linked above:
"Third Intermediate and Late Periods

A fragmentary sandstone stela of a priest of Seth named Khai, Stela JE 52478, was found by locals in the vicinity of Mut in 1928 and is now housed in the Cairo Museum.[37] The top two lines of text are missing, as is the upper part of the stela which would have shown a pictorial relief. At present it measures 56 cm high, 80 cm wide and has a depth of 20.5 cm. It is carved with eight lines of poorly-executed cursive hieroglyphs that are divided by irregular horizontal lines. The text, which identifies the owner, Khai, as 'true of voice…', indicates that it was a funerary offering stela. It most likely originated from a cemetery close to Mut el-Kharab and a palaeographic analysis enables it to be dated to Dynasty 23.[38]

Much of the text is missing and, as a result, it is impossible to gain a full understanding of the document. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect concerns the phrase '… an offering for the ka of the scribe, the priest of Seth, Khai, of the house of Igai […]. He says: “I am a servant of Seth…” '.[39] Although the context is ambiguous, it is evident that Khai was a priest of Seth and, significantly, he was also associated with an as yet undiscovered temple in this region that was dedicated to Igai.[40] It also demonstrates a close relationship between the cults of Seth and Igai in Dakhleh in the Third Intermediate Period.

I hate to say, but some people who are there in Egypt took a look-see and confirmed, this did happen. (As reported on one of the FB Egyptological groups.)  Let's hope the repair won't be too difficult.

Em Hotep!

I finally got my photos organized and all the links work!

If you have a chance to visit this museum, don't miss it!

Em Hotep, Aset's Adorer!

 Or Yinepu "Anubis". When I saw him in a picture dressed in a toga, I felt a bit upset. (I'd never seen that pic before).

That IS a 'freaky' looking statue!  For those who haven't seen it, here's two links:

I'm sure it didn't look freaky to the Greco-Romans, though.

Perhaps you can re-apply for the beginner's class?

Would you happen to know what the title is, Bezenwepwy?

I was able to figure out what part of the glyphs is Kayemnofret's name, but the jackel, a fish glyph and the "sh" pool glyph is before that name.

Thank you for clearing part of the mystery up!


Quote from: Bezenwepwy
Neither. In the OK, that particular jackal glyph only denotes a title.

Edit to add: Opposed jackal deities (not to be confused with the sAb glyph in your example) on funerary objects can be a much trickier subject.

So the two jackals facing each other in Kayemnofret's offering chapel are both Wepwawet then?

To see my photos:

The first one shows the two facing each other. The hieroglyphs are so beautifully detailed.
