"Em hotep" (EM ho-TEP) actually has several meanings, but when used as a salutation or parting phrase, it means "in peace". An extended version -- "ii-wy em hotep" -- means "Welcome in peace!" and was one of the most popular greetings in Kemetic. "Em hotep" should not be confused with "Imhotep," "(he) comes in peace," the personal name of a famous Kemetic ancestor.
