‘The Abyss’ (fem.), a Goddess belonging to the Hermopolitan Ogdoad. Naunet is the feminine complement to Nun, occurring together with him in contexts such as PT utterance 301, where the two of them are said to “protect the Gods with your shadow,” or utterance 606, in which the resurrected king, identified with the sun, is enthroned with Shu to his east, Tefnut to his west, Nun to his south and Naunet to his north. Naunet is possibly regarded as personifying the ‘nether sky’, the sky traversed by the sun through the night. References in the Pyramid Texts to a place called nnt include PT utterance 218, in which the king’s authority in the afterlife is affirmed over earth-dwellers of the west, east, south and north, then over “those in the nnt“; utterance 222, in which the king is urged by the officiating priest to “go down” with Atum, “discern the needs of the nnt and succeed to the thrones of Nun”; and utterance 548, in which the king crosses the “Winding Waterway” (thought to designate the ecliptic) “to the Field of the nnts,” or ‘nether skies’, which are situated temporally and perhaps spatially ‘before’ the Field of Reeds, which in turn lies temporally just prior to the sunrise, and so the ‘nether sky’ or ‘nether skies’ would presumably, in lying ‘before’ it, lie deeper in the night. Naunet is also sometimes characterized straightforwardly as “mother of Re“.
Naunet (Nunet), on the other hand, is more obscure than her husband. She was thought to be a snake-headed woman who presided over the watery chaos with Nun. Her name was exactly the same as Nun’s, in hieroglyphs, but with the feminine ending for a goddess.
In Hikuptah, she was imagined to be the mother of the sun god, as Nun was the father, combined with Ptah, creator god of the city:
- The gods who came into being in Ptah:
- Ptah-on-the-great-throne ——–.
- Ptah-Nun, the father who [made] Atem.
- Ptah-Naunet, the mother who bore Atem.
- Ptah-the-Great is heart and tongue of the Nine [Gods].
- — Shabaka Stone
The Egyptians of Khmunu believed that the world was surrounded by mountains that helped support the sky, but at their feet was Naunet. They imagined that Ra appeared from these mountains, being reborn daily from the watery abyss.
Naunet was the feminine to Nun’s masculine, more of a representation of duality than an actual goddess, so she was even less of a deity than Nun, and more of an abstract.
One day, it was believed that the waters of Nun would eventually inundate the whole world, and once again the universe would become the primordial waste of Nun’s chaotic waters.
