It is usually depicted as a dog or a man with a dog's head. Archaeologists have found that the animal sanctified as Anubis is an Egyptian canine, the African jackal. Like many ancient Egyptian gods, Anubis assumed different roles in different contexts. He was depicted as the protector of the early tombs of the First Dynasty (c. 3100 - c. 2890 BC), and Anubis was also responsible for the embalming. By the Middle Kingdom (about 2055 - 1650 BC) he was replaced by Osiris in his role as master of the underworld. One of his prominent roles served as the guide of life in the afterlife. He was attending the balance activities, during which the "heart weight" was made, and whether the soul would be allowed to enter the world of the dead. Despite being one of the oldest deities and "one of the most mentioned deities" in the Egyptian Pantheon, Anubis played no role in Egyptian mythology. Anubis is depicted in black, a color that symbolizes regeneration, life, and Nile river soil, and the change of body color after embalming. Anubis is associated with his brother and Boout, another Egyptian god depicted with a dog head or a canine, but with gray or white fur. Historians assume that the two characters were finally combined. The female counterpart of Anubis is Anput. His daughter is the goddess of vipers Kebechet, probably died Material: Stone
