Anubis, God of the dead in ancient Egyptian religion.
Anubis is represented either by a jackal, or by a man with the head of a jackal and with black skin.
His role as god of the dead was strong for centuries all over Egypt, but he started to be replaced by Osiris from around 2000 BCE. He continued to be in charge of the funerary cults, especially the embalming process, an act which he performed on Osiris.
He was also the judge of the dead, where the Egyptians believed that he weighed the heart of the dead against the feather of truth.
