A 5th Dynasty Deity, (25 BC), Werethekau was a Female Personification for invoking protection against Supernatural powers (curses and hexes). Her very image and talisman (a Crown), was said to suffice enough to ward off evil. She pre-dates the use of the well known ''Eye of Horus''. Her image was often carved into various Medical instruments used by Physicians and Midwives, as a mean to over protection when these Professions worked their craft. Werethekau was sometimes portrayed as a Feminine body with a Snake or Lion Head.
