The lion goddess Sekhmet was the wife of Ptah. She appeared in the form of a lion or of a woman with the head of a lion. Sekhmet whose name means 'powerful one' accompanied the ruler (of the time) into war and at times was even called the 'mother of the ruler'. In her furious aspect she was even superior to the followers of Set and the Apophis snake. Her weapons were the hot desert wind and arrows which she shot into the hearts of her enemies. In this way Sekhmet also became the fire-breathing Uraeus and the Eye of Ra. In her infinite fury she also spread fear and fright through disease and plagues. If her wrath could be appeased she became full of magic and bore the additional name Werethekay. In this characteristic she used her power for healing and in this way also accelerated the restoration of order into the kingdom. For this reason physicians were also called 'priests of Sekhmet'. Sekhmet was worshipped in Memphis as the wife of Ptah and mother of their son Nefertem.
