Neith was one of the oldest deities of ancient Egypt. She was the goddess of war and weaving. She was also a funerary goddess who cared for and helped to dress the souls of the dead.
Neith is said to have been present at the creation of the world and, in some stories, even the creator herself who gave birth to Ra who then completed the act of creation. She is always represented as extremely wise and just.

"She is always represented as extremely wise and just."  The total opposite to greek gods!

Maybe because Greek myths are meant to be stories that are relatable to the human condition, and the flaws that we all suffer from... but whatever lol.

No, just because they are based off of the white people who were evil, unwise and unjust, like the ones who run the country and the racist whites.

I honestly hope you’re being sarcastic or trying to troll... And that you’re not actually that ignorant in reality. 😅

The goddess of the war is no longer current, it was a misinterpretation. Protect and defend the arrows symbolizing. She has a temple called the house of the bee. The bee is associated with it because it also has a spike and is a protector. Duamutef and Neith was the protectors of the stomach from the Pharao.

Love her!
On a side note: Are you drawing or have drawn an Egyptian God or Goddess that controls time? I’m creating a comic book based on Egyptian Mythology and this will help me out big time!

Thank you!

Hmm...I never drew him but there is Heh, god of infinity and time but I don't know if he could control it :o 

There are certainly other gods related to time but it's the only one that comes to my mind ^^'

Hope you draw him soon!

You know the ancient Egyptians weren't one race, right? They were a mixed society of both black and white people.
