Anubis, Egyptian God of the Dead

Anubis was the jackal-headed Egyptian god of embalming and mummification. Called the Foremost of the Westerners, Anubis was the guardian of the dead, who were traditionally buried on the Western bank of the Nile. Anubis, Lord of the Sacred Lands, guided the souls of the dead into the Duat.
