In Egyptian myth, Namtar is the guardian serpent of the entrance to the underworld. He also shows the sun god Ra to issue from the underworld when he takes flight across the night sky back to the point where his daily voyage begins.

John and Caitlin Matthews, The Element Encyclopaedia of Magical Creatures, 2013, Namtar, p 340
