Maat, pinna struthionis in capillis, sceptro in dextra, et cruce ansata in laeva manu.
Maat alata.
Maat pinnam veritatis gerit.
Cor in Duat penditur, pinna Maatiana pro mensura in libra adhibita. Ex Libro Mortuorum.

Maat, vel Ma'at, in Aegypto antiqua fuit sententia veritatis, aequilibrii, ordinis, iuris, morum, et iustitiae, quae personificata dea stellas, tempora anni, et acta mortalium et deitatum moderabatur, ac formam universi ex tempore creationis instituerat. Res gemella ideologica fuit Isfet.

Pharaones saepe depinguntur cum signis Maat ad partes exprimendas quas in legibus creatoris conservandis agebant.[1]
