The current issue of Journal of Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Archaeology is mainly dedicated to the various aspects of Renenutet/Isis Thermouthis, but also snake-like deities, their iconography and associated apotropaia. This paper will explore three main topics associated with this topic within the sandstone quarry of Gebel el Silsila: 1) Graeco-Roman anguiform pictorial representations, 2) various deities defined (or associated) with the demotic snake-determinative pA-Si (Shaï/Psais, also known as Agathodaimon), and 3) a unique textual reference to the Greek/Hellenistic goddess (Agatha) Tyche (Fate), who occasionally was regarded an ally of Isis Thermouthis and a Greek female form of the more frequently listed Egyptian Shaï.
