The ancient Egyptians knew the scorpion and its toxicity and venerated it since the pre-dynastic era. They used the scorpion as a king's name, a name of a nome (county), and a symbol of their goddess, Serqet, that protects the body and the viscera of the dead, and accompanies them on their journey to the afterlife. She is powerful to be sure, she knows her worth and will wait till the right companion comes along to know her worth as well. Selket, also spelled Selqet, or Serqet, in Egyptian mythology, goddess of the dead.
