Aset, Auset, Isis, Names and Epithets, Translations

LAGG Animals-Aset

So I have been translating Aset’s section of the LAGG (Lexicon der Ägyptischen Götter und Götterbezeichnungen edited by Christian Leitz et al). First off, this is awesome. And secondly, there are 80 pages. Yes, you read that right. Aset has 80 pages of epithets, names, and manifestations listed in this one volume of this series of books). I translated a lot of the location section today and well, I needed a break from Nomes and cities so I skipped ahead to the animal section. I translated that section and there are a few things I didn’t know.

Her usual animals are listed there: Black Kite, Celestial Cow, Cobra, Hippopotamus, Falcon, Scorpion and Lioness. What was a surprise to me was a Greyhound, a Dog, a Female Baboon, two different types of fish, a dolphin (which is actually the Nile Tilapia fish) and a Tern (which is apparently a type of bird).

So just thought I’d share this with everyone.

Dua Aset (Hail Aset)!
