Egyptian River Goddess
Also known as Ankhet, Ankt, Anouke, Anukit, Anuqet
River Nile Goddess of water purification
Anuket 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, Anuket 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 ménage à trois.
