Abstract

This paper tackles the question of the deity (IAt) in ancient Egyptian theology. It aims at presenting a complete overview of the deity in ancient Egyptian art and scripts in an attempt to consolidate its origin and track the forms in which it was portrayed as well as accounting for its features, symbol and role in ancient Egyptian theology since so far there has been no study tackling this deity. The researcher attempts to provide answers for questions concerning how the name is written, differentiating the male and female forms of the deity as well as their link to divine birth and milk production. Several issues related to this deity, such as its dual nature remain vague. The abovementioned is presented in a linguistic, theological and archeological study.
