The Uræus

 
Uræus is in fact a word designating the cobra "Wadjet" erected (the position of the cobra that is about to bounce).
 
In Egyptian mythology, Wadjet, also called Bouto (from Βουτώ/Boutố in Greek) or Outo (from Οὐτώ/Outố in Greek) is a cobra goddess from the city of Bouto (Dessouk) in the north of the Nile Delta. She is the protector of Lower Egypt (the part of Egypt the closest from the Mediterranean Sea).
 

Wadjet and Nekhbet

 

In her role as protector of the pharaoh, Uræus is associated with the vulture goddess Nekhbet, symbol of Upper Egypt. Together, they form the redundant symbol of the Two Lands (the Upper Egypt and the Lower Egypt) united in the name of pharaoh. Both were present on the pharaonic crowns. On the walls of temples and tombs, the  Uræus appeared as a woman wearing the red crown of Lower Egypt (while Nekhbet appeared as a woman wearing the white crown of Upper Egypt).
 
Still standing beside the vulture goddess Nekhbet, they are "the two mistresses" (or "the two ladies").
