Amunet – The Hidden One (Egyptian mythology)

Amunet The Hidden One was a primordial goddess in Ancient Egyptian religion. She is a member of the Ogdoad and the consort of Amun. Her name, meaning “the female hidden one”, was simply the feminine form of Amun’s own name. It is possible that she was never an independent deity, as the first mention of either of them is in a pair. she was seen as a protector of the pharaoh. At Kar nak, Amun’s cult center, priests were dedicated to Amun et’s service. The goddess also played a part in royal ceremonies such as the Sed festival. Amun et was depicted as a woman wearing the Red Crown and carrying a staff of papyrus. she remained a distinct deity as late as the Ptolemaic period around 323 to 30 BC.
