Buto was a settlement located in Lower Egypt.
Early Dynastic Egypt
A shrine from this district is thought to be depicted on the Narmer Macehead due to the shrine with a pitched roof with heron on top as this is the shrine of Djebaut, a district of Buto in north-western Delta. However this theory is complicated by the wavy walled enclosure shown which looks like a structure recently found at Hierakonpolis. Buto is mentioned later in the reign of Hor-Aha from a wooden label who is said to have visited the ḏbˤwt (Djebaut) shrine, and again in the reign of Djer when he is said to have visited Buto and Sais.
