(Nebetu; not to be confused with Nbd(w), an epithet meaning “Noxious One”, e.g. in spells 138 and 152 of the Book of the Dead, which is however sometimes written “Nebtu”) Nebtu, whose name means “Mistress of the region/district,” perhaps with the sense of “countryside,” is the consort of Khnum at Esna together with Menhyt. Her litany from the temple at Esna (Sauneron, Esna VIII, pp. 27-31) seems to associate her especially with the growth of all edible plants and the nourishing function of the land.
