What is known of Mammet is also very little. She was a harlot who played the mesenqo (string instrument). She was a daughter of a man named Tsebaú from the village Qelay Bealtet (Rossini 1904: 361). Her beauty and attraction to many suitors can very well understood from her existing poem. Unlike Sappho and Mirabai, Mammet’s references to god is not so direct nor of devotional; but they appear to be sarcastic, at least in some cases.
