Buto

Buto Symbols: cobra, Udjat, Red Crown and the cobra-headdress or uraeus worn by royalty. Linked with Horus the Elder who was protector of Lower Egypt. Buto was a cobra-goddess whose original home and cult center was in the Delta of the Nile at Per-Uatchit. In time she became a prominent protectress of all of Lower Egypt. As such she was routinely connected to the goddess of Upper Egypt, Nekhebet. Together, they appeared in many pieces of art as symbols of the Two Lands, a united Egypt. http://www.egyptianmyths.net/buto.htm Lower Egypt Upper Egypt Red Crown White Crown Buto Nekhebet > Nephthys
