She is depicted as a woman with a lion's head wearing a solar disk and a Ureas (snake). She was associated with Neith (an ancient goddess of war) at Esna and was also compared to the "Eye of Ra" (especially Tefnut, Sekhmet, or Hathor).

In Upper Egypt, she was worshiped as the wife of Khnum and the mother of the sorceress-god Hekka. In Lower Egypt, she was worshiped in association with Wadjet and Neith, two patron deities of Lower Egypt.
