(Udjarenes) Wedjarenes, whose name means “Her Name Flourishes”, was the daughter of two members of the clergy of Hathor at Hut-Sekhem (Hiw, Diospolis Parva) in Upper Egypt. For reasons unknown, Udjarenes was deified at her death and integrated into the local pantheon. Wedjarenes is depicted in a fashion similar to Hathor, anthropomorphic and wearing the solar disk, and bears the title “God’s Wife of Neferhotep.”
