MENHIT is the Egyptian Goddess of war. She came to Egypt from Nubia, and was identified with Sekhmet, another Goddess of war. Since Sekhmet was depicted as a lion-headed woman, Menhit was shown the same way. Menhit is the wife of Khnum, God of the source of the Nile, and mother of Heka, the God of magic. As with the other lioness Goddesses, she acted as a protector of the King and his armies, proceeding ahead of them to shoot fiery arrows at their enemies in battles. Menhit's name, which means "she who slaughters," is also seen as MENHET, MENHYT, MENCHIT, and MENKHET.
