Goddess: I’m Swiss, oddly (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

isis

Here is my best explanation:

'goddess' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'i'm swiss oddly' is the subsidiary indication.

'oddly' indicates alternate letters.

'im'+'swiss'='imswiss'

The alternate letters of 'imswiss' are 'isis'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for isis that I've seen before include "Oxford's second eight", "Sister of Osiris", "Repetitive Egyptian goddess", "River Thames at Oxford", "Revered figure", "Goddess of the rainbow", "Mother of Horus", "The goddess lives twice", "Oxfordshire river" and "sister".)
