Osiris and Isis

Orpheus: Myths of the World: Egyptian: Osiris and Isis

Wadjet (Wadjyt, Wadjit, Uto, Uatchet, Edjo, Buto) was one of the oldest Egyptian goddesses. Her worship was already established by the Predynastic Period, but did change somewhat as time progressed. She began as the local goddess of Per-Wadjet (Buto) but soon became a patron goddess of Lower Egypt.

Wadjet was originally the ancient local goddess of the city of Dep , a city that was an important site in the Predynastic era of Ancient Egypt and the cultural developments of the Paleolithic.
