Late Festival for Nebet Het

I found a festival called Offering Sacrifice to Nebet Het and Wesir on 13 of Boedromion (mid-September) which is why on the Egyptian calendar I put it on 2nd Akhet Day 13.

On this festival They were offered milk and water mixed with honey, fruit and a cockerel.

As is Greek custom for purifying sacred space, wheat and barley were scattered.

    1. It is just listed in a festival calendar: “Hadrianic sacrificial calendar”. I’m not seeing a reason mentioned besides making offerings to Gods. We’re really lucky to have the offerings listed with it. I don’t have much more information besides that.
