Amentet (Ament, Iment -it, -et) was originally the place for the setting sun but with time she became the hostess in the next world. She took care of the dead and guided them to their new homes and sup- plied them with food and wa- ter. She personified the world beyond - "Land of the West" - Amenty.
From her shelter in a tree at the desert edge she had a good view over the gates to the underworld. Her looks were of a woman with object on her head. A falcon, an ostrich feather and the sign for "west" (in picture right). She was linked to the main goddesses an occationally she could have wings. Her parents were Horus and Hathor and she represented the setting sun, in pair with Re-Horakthy (the rising sun).
