In Egyptian mythology, Nephthys (TR:73) (LH:11) (TL:84), hieroglyphs: or (Nebt-Het), was a “funerary goddess’ (Jordan, 1993) or "goddess of death which is not eternal" (Budge, 1904), daughter of Geb and Nut, younger sister of Isis, Osiris, and Set; who becomes the unwilling (Ѻ) wife of Set; later becoming, via a "brief liaison" with Osiris, the mother of Anubis (Anpu); oft-paired Isis, in the form of the goddess pair "Meri sisters" (Massey, c.1890).
The following are quotes:
- “Nephthys, although a goddess of death, was associated with the coming into existence of the life which springs from death, and that she was, like Isis, a female counterpart of Amsu, the ithyphallic god.”
