Serqet, also known as Selqet, Selkit and Serket, was the goddess of fertility, nature, animals, medicine, magic in Egyptian mythology. According to legend, Serqet protected Isis and Horus from Seth, after his murder of Osiris.

Serqet is associated with scorpions, to the point that her symbol is one. People prayed to her for protection from venomous animals' bites and stings.

By the 1st century BCE, a cult worshipping Serqet operated in Lower Egypt, led by a man calling himself Prophet of Serqet, and performing various sacrilegious killings and rituals.[1]
