Asenath

ASENATH (ăs'ĕn-ăth). A daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, the modern Heliopolis, near Cairo. Pharaoh gave her to Joseph as his wife (Gen.41.45-Gen.41.50), and she bore Manasseh and Ephraim before the famine began. The form of this name is well attested in Egyptian usage from 2100-1600 b.c.
