Egyptian Gods

Renenutet

Role: Goddess of fertility and protector of children

Appearance: Cobra-headed woman, or a cobra.

Center of worship: Terenuthis

 

Renenutet was especially important in Lower Egypt because the center of her worship was in a city in the delta region. She was believed to have great powers. She could make soil fertile by merely looking at it and wipe out her enemies with just a glance. As a protector of children, it was her job to use this power against any evil-doer who intended to harm a child.
