in hieroglyphs
A stela or Tablet depicting a pharaoh Osorkon I making offerings to Re-Horakhty and Nebet-Hetepet (circa 924-889 B.C.)

Nebethetepet (nb.t-ḥtp.t) is an ancient Egyptian goddess. Her name means "Lady of the Offerings" or "Satisfied Lady". She was worshipped in Heliopolis as a female counterpart of Atum, similarly to Iusaaset, and was also associated with Hathor. She personified Atum's hand, the female principle of creation, but aside from that had little significance.[1]
