AMMIT
Also known as AMMAM, AMEMAIT, AMMUT, AHEMAIT

A picture showing the legend of AMMIT taken from our Egyptian mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Egyptian Gods, Egyptian Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

The Devourer of Souls.

She's a demonic Goddess who is part hippo, part croc and part lion, a scary combination that's put to good use when a soul's judgment day comes.

AMMIT lurks under the Scales of Justice while OSIRIS, THOTH and MAAT weigh up the evidence. If your soul is deemed unworthy, she pops out and gobbles it up. And that's the end of you.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ammit graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ammit movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Ammit statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ammit. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
