Is there an Ancient Egyptian equivalent of Medusa? I have been reading around lately, trying to find some clues. Different people tend to assume Medusa as being the Greek version of many different Goddesses from Egypt. Two of the theories I have found are Wadjet and Neith. Medusa being the Greek version of Neith makes little sense to me, given that I've heard she is of the Concubine lineage and an Elder. (My apologies if it is rude to bring up specific Asetians in here.) Medusa being associated with snakes makes her seem to have a more Viperine feel, so the Wadjet theory makes a bit more sense in my mind. Wadjet is associated with cobras and the Eye of Ra, so surely this goddess would have a very powerful gaze (this fact is reminiscent of the paralyzing gaze of Medusa). And that brings me to another question... was Wadjet an Asetian, simply of the Asetian family, or outside of it, regardless of whether she has a connection with Medusa? It is unbelievably difficult to make sense of Egyptology and myths when trying to match them up to Asetianism, because of the unsavory things humans have done to corrupt historical records.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
