Netpe or Nutpe

Netpe or Nutpe an Egyptian female deity, is spoken of as daughter to the Sun, wife of Seb, and mother of Typhon, the god of evil among the ancient Egyptians. According to a myth, she was represented as seated on the tree of life, and sprinkling healthful water upon the souls of men. In one form she personifies the abyss of heaven, represented as a female figure, stretched across the aerial vault, with her arms and legs enclosing, the earth. She was thought to be the Rhea of the Greeks. See Trevor, Ancient Egypt, pages 147, 149.
