Hatmehyt is an Egyptian Goddess of fish, whose name means “she who is before the fishes”. This suggests either that she was the first fish or that she is predominant over other fish deities. She was worshipped primarily at Mendes, and was the consort of that city’s ram God, Banebdjedet. She is usually depicted as a woman with a fish emblem on her head, or in the form of a fish. Her name is also seen as Hatmehit.
