Syncretic Goddess

Syncretic deities are two deities that fuse or combine to form a third separate entity. So Aset, Nut, and Aset-Nut are three separate deities.

Aset can syncretize with many Goddesses to form a third deity so there are:

Aset-Amentet/Amenti
Aset-Amunet
Aset-Anput (Female Anpu/Yinepu)
Aset-Bast
Aset-Hededet
Aset-Hesat
Aset-Hesat-Sopdet
Aset-Hetharu
Aset-Ipet
Aset-Mehet Weret
Aset-Meskhenet
Aset-Mut
Aset-Nebet Het (Ma’ati)
Aset-Nut
Aset-Renenutet
Aset-Satet
Aset-Sekhmet
Aset-Serqet
Aset-Sopdet
Aset-Tayet
Aset-Weret Hekau

  1. So was I have a question about syncretic deities, does the syncretic deity share roles and attributes with the two(or more) deities that were syncretisized? For example would Aset-Renenutet share the roles and such of Aset and Renenutet? Thanks!
