The main aim of the paper is an attempt to analyse the function of the goddess Mafdet in the Pyramid Texts, the earliest corpus of ancient Egyptian religious texts. Her role in the Egyptian religion seems to be underestimated. The reason for that is her marginal appearance in the documents later than the Old Kingdom. However, an examination of the spells from the Pyramid Texts, where Mafdet is mentioned, allows us to assume that in the Third Millennium B.C. she belonged to the group of deities most closely associated with the king.
