Neithiqret II (transliteration: nt-ỉqrt, meaning: "Neith is Perfect"), Hellenized as Nitokris (Koine Greek: Νίτωκρις), was an ancient Egyptian Divine Adoratrice of Amun of the Twenty-sixth Dynasty during the Late Period. She was adopted by the God's Wife of Amun Ankhnesneferibre as her heir apparent.

Interestingly, Neithiqret is the last known person attested as High Priest of Amun. This once powerful and influential office had long lost its importance in favor of the God's Wife and its significance may have been no more than honorific by this point in time.

Neithiqret never became God's Wife of Amun since the office, along with that of the Divine Adoratrice, was abolished after the Achaemenid conquest of Egypt.
