ANKHET
Also known as ANUKET, ANKT

River Nile Goddess of water purification

ANKHET keeps the waters of the Nile clean with fresh fertilization. Consequently she's a very important Goddess to the Egyptians. She's also good on the defense — she carries a spear and doesn't hesitate to make her point.

As far as family life is concerned, ANKHET is one corner of a love triangle involving her dad KHNUM and sister SATET. They're known as the Triad of Elefantine, but it's really more a m?nage ? trois.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ankhet graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ankhet 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 Ankhet statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ankhet. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
