As a protector of Egypt, Satet was told to repel Egypt's enemies with arrows.
Her cult was generally bounded to the region of Aswan, but traces of her cult have been found as far north as Saqqara.
She was the wife of Khnum, making up the triad of Elephantine with a daughter, Anuket.
She was depicted wearing the white crown of Upper Egypt with two antelope horns. At a later stage she would be fused with Sothis.
