Wadjet is an ancient goddess of Egypt whose cult center is Buto. She is the protector of the north, Lower Egypt. She has associations to Hathor, and she is said to have helped Isis protect the infant Horus. Wadjet arranged the reeds and foliage to hide Isis and her son from all their enemies until Horus could mature and avenge his father Osiris by smiting his Uncle Seth. Wadjet is a cobra goddess. She is also seen as a woman holding the crown of Lower Egypt, with an entwined papyrus scepter and a serpent. As such she is included in the coronation ceremonies of the kings. With her counterpart Nekhbit, the vulture goddess of Upper Egypt, she appears on the atef crown.
