The inspiration for SESHESHET in Hunting Hathor and The Smiting Texts?

 Sesheshet - her name evoked the rattling sounds made by Hathor's systrum shaken by priestesses in the temples and also the rustling sound of reeds as the lioness Sekhmet the Destroyer stalked the hunter...

Both the wicked Nefernefernefer (The Egyptian) and She (novel by Rider Haggard) probably helped spark my character Sesheshet.

Sesheshet also appears in a tale within a novel in The Smiting Texts
