For an earlier representation of a goddess suckling a king see the ostracon of Ramesses II, now in the Cleveland Museum of Art, no. 50 in Capel and Markoe, eds., Mistress of the House, Mistress of Heaven, Women in Ancient Egypt. As Capel informs (p. 118), "the king was suckled by a goddess on three occasions: at birth into this world; at coronation--his 'birth' into kingship; and after his death, when he was reborn in the afterlife. ... An inscription on a vessel from the tomb of King Aspelta, which was used for drinking 'divine' milk, reads: 'Hail to you, O beautiful liquid, O good produce which averts every evil. ...May you drive away every evil and ward off every abomination...' This milk-drinking ritual evidently was believed to purify a person of sin as he or she underwent a crucial rite of passage." In the absence of an attribute or inscription, the identity of the goddess cannot be ascertained, but Mut or Anuket are possibilities.
