Anubis is a god of funerals and embalming. In some variations of the myth, he is the son of Nepthys and Set. (In others, he is the son of Nepthys and Osirus.) In the underworld, Anubis is the "Weigher of Souls" of the dead against a feather (ma'at, representing truth), with Osirus making final judgement and Thoth recording the proceedings. If a soul is found wanting, it is thrown to the Devourer (Ammut). If a soul passes the test of being weighed, it is released to the afterlife. Anubis is typically depicted as a dark-skinned human with a jackal head, or as a jackal with an elaborate collar.
