Hatmehit is an ancient Egyptian goddess of fish and the inundation of the Nile river. She was personified with Hatmehit, the sixteenth nome of Lower Egypt and associated with the nome's provincial capital city, Mendes. She may have originally been the city's main deity, before being overshadowed by Banebdjedet, who is often considered to be her husband.
