'She who is rich in magic' or 'Great in magic'. A name used for various goddesses, especially Aset and Sekhmet, but she is also a deity in her own right, depicted as a snake or a woman with a lioness head. She was also considered the divine nurse of the king and the protector of Egypt. From the New Kingdom onwards she was present at the coronation of the King.
