Local ram deity of Djedet (Mendes), meaning 'the spirit, the lord of Djedet'. He incorporated the essence of the world in four forms or 'ba' spirits, corresponding to the fours first rulers of the world; Ra, Shu, Geb and Osiris. At Mendes his spouse was the local fish goddess Hat-Mehit and here in the 6th century BC, the Saite king Ahmose II, constructed four monolithic granite shrines for each of these four 'spirits'. This became one of the greatest Egyptian complexes to endure until the Ptolemeian period was over.

No festival days have come down to us, although it is likely that this occurred during the Saite period.
