The destructive Sekhmet avatar of Hathor is represented as a fierce lion-headed goddess of war wading in blood.
The female counterpart of Ptah was Sekhmet, and they were the parents of Nefer-tem.
In contradistinction to the fierce Sekhmet, she typified the mild fertilizing heat of the sun.
Sekhmet is the same personage as Hathor in the original text.
On the head of the deceased shall be the bandage of Sekhmet, beloved of Ptah, in two pieces.
He was the third member of the triad of Memphis, which was made up of himself with Ptah and Sekhmet.
