Mertseger - "She Who Loves Silence" - the Name of Netjer said to inhabit the peak of the highest mountain behind the Great Place at Uaset, (today known as Biban el-Muluk, or the Valley of the Kings, at Luxor). The peak itself is strikingly pyramid-shaped, and perhaps reminded the New Kingdom rulers of the great monuments Old Kingdom rulers had erected north at Giza and other locations. Mertseger was considered either to be a full lioness or a lion-headed woman (like Sekhmet and forms of Mut and Het-hert). Hymns honoring the "lion of the Peak," warning men to "Beware the Peak of the West!", along with prayers and appeals for Mertseger's mercy, have been found in the workmen's village at Deir-el-Medina, in the shadow of the Peak.
