I was looking through the sed festival images from Soleb at the Oriental Institute and on this picture:


The small figure behind Tiye is called mut netjer I think. I first thought it said Amun, but I think it may say something else. I have a hard time making it out. Werenro?
Is this a priestess? She 's called God's Mother instead of God's Wife. Or is that just part of her name?
Could this be Mutemwia instead? But why not name her by her name then?

Ruiu, mother of Kheruef, Tiye's Steward had also the title of Mother of the God.

Interesting. The name doesn't look like Ruiu though.
But maybe some other lady with that title then?

I found the scene in Lepsius' Denkmahler




The title is actually mut netjer n swty. Means something like, "god's mother of the double plumes"?
Or could swty refer to Sety? The determinant of a city is throwing me off here. Is there a city or location named swty?

The double feathers are carried by officials in the register above her.

If it were Aa1
instead of 049
it wouldn't be a name of a god?: Sutekh

I think the god's name has a determinant that looks like the Seth animal. And if Seth is referred to by a place name, then it's Nubt.

Unless this is some unusual reference?

Rozette just told me that the lady is the God's Mother of Siut (Asyut, Asiut).
The main deities from that location are Wepwawet and Anubis. And the GOd's mother is followed by someone carrying a standard of Wepwawet.

The scenes have something to to do with the "striking of the gates" which takes place at the beginning of the sed festival.
