Meret in Egyptian also
Meret had a main roll in the daily life of ordinary Egypti- ans, but was not officially ven- erated in the same scale.
She was the goddess of sing- ing and rejoicing and popular mostly among ordinary folks and not so much in the high classes who preferred the "so- fisticated" Isis. She often had an offering bowl in her hands which she reached up to the sky, similar to te Nile god Ha- py with whom she was conn- ected as a token wife.
The regalia (papyrus plant or a blue lotus) she was wore upon her head, was his too and they both stodd for bountifulness. Her name ment "the beloved". An Egyptian princess during the Middle Kingdom was named Meret and her jew- ellery was found in a cache at Dashur in 1894.
