It was a very frequent symbol since the beginning of the New Kingdom.In many ways it resembles the ankh, except that its "arms" are curved down. Its meaning is also reminiscent of the ankh, since it is often translated as "welfare" or "life."The tyet probably dates from the pre-Dynastic period of Egypt and was a popular decorative symbol in Dynasty III (Ancient Empire), where it usually appears alongside the ankh and the dyed pillar. During the New Kingdom, the symbol was clearly associated with the strength and magic of Isis ("lady of magic") since it was using the knots of a cord, as Isis revived Osiris, as mentioned in the Texts of the Pyramids:The Tyet also personifies the Goddesses Nut, Hathor and Nephthys, where the knot constitutes a kind of dress, with the central part and the side pieces forming a stylized girdle.
