Hededet. Hddt or HDD(w)t (Band II, page 1076)

Is the name given to a scorpion goddess more particularly identified in the Late Period as Aset. The Coffin Texts are the first to mention her Name. The Coffin Texts and the Book of the Dead, which do not yet associate it with Aset, foccus above all on the knotty aspect of the animal's tail, identifying it in turn with the divine curl of hair, with various ropes of the celestial ship or to the ties that immobilize Apep.

Only chapter 86 of the Book of the Dead occasionally makes Hededet the daughter of Ra, but this is a reinterpretation. The context and the older versions of this chapter make it clear that we are dealing with a female bird - HDDit, daughter of Ra, associated with the swallow.

Apart from the large religious bodies, Hededet is attested from the end of the 18th dynasty in Edfu. A barber associates her on a stele with Behedety. Ptolemaic temples consider Hededet to be a purely local deity. She is even expressly identified with the city of Outjeset-Hor* "Sovereign of the Cities" The clergy of Aset-Hededet is sporadically attested to Edfu from the Saite period.

The Ptolemaic temples allow us to affirm that she was, under the name of "Aset who is Hededet in Edfu", considered as the mother of the local Heru.

As a Scorpion goddess she is sometimes identified with Serqet. She protects against poisonous animals. She is in fact a protective goddess and keeps enemies away from the temple. To this draw she is more particularly attributed the protection of the corridor which surrounds the naos. As Aset, she is assimilated to Hethert as well as Edfu and Dendera. In the texts of this last temple, however, an arnalgam occurred between Aset-Hededet-Scorpion and HDDt "the Shining One", whose name covers both a solar Aset and the "Eye of Ra" aspect of the goddess Hethert. Aset-HDDt is unequivocally associated with celestial navigation and solar radiance, within the temple of Behbeit el-Hagar.

Apart from Edfu, Hededet still had a cult in Sais, where she paralleled the local Serqet. Associated with Nit, she was under the name of Hddt imit st-nfrt, "Hededet who is in the deep place", considered a protector of the temple stores.

Em hotep and welcome!  May you enjoy your stay here and find what you're looking for.
Lion-shaped goddess, mistress of Iakemet. In the AR apparently goddess of the 12 upper egyptian nome. Meaning of the name unknown. As a goddess she was called "Die von 3tft". Kees' interpretation of "Die Zerschneidende (the cutting one)" is basically based on a reading error, although the Gau capital seems to have a certain relationship with a "knife". Another nickname 'ntjt "The Clawed One" can perhaps be deduced from inscriptions in the temple of Dendara. In it, Matit is considered Hathor / Aset. After the AR, Matit was surpassed as the representative of the 12 gaus of Nemty (formerly read Anti).
Pour ma part c'est la triade Memphite qui m'attire : Ptah, Sekhmet et Nefertoum.  :)
