Nesitanebetashru (ns-t3-nb.t-ỉšrw) was the name of two ancient Egyptian ladies. The name means “belonging to the lady of the ashru”; the ashru or isheru was a crescent-shaped sacred lake around the temples of solar goddesses, here it refers to Mut.
Nesitanebetashru of the 21st dynasty was a daughter of Pinedjem II, High Priest of Amun, and Neskhons. She is mentioned in the funerary text of her mother, written on a wooden tablet. Her mummy, coffins and ushabtis were found in the tomb TT320 and are now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
