Ankhet (Greek: Anukis) came from the city Aswan where she protected the first cataract against southerners (though her own headgear looks a bit "southern").
She was daugh- ter and consort to Khnum and formed the "triad of Elefan- tine" with her sister (some- times her mother) Satet. Like her she was the protector of fresh water and made the an- nual fertilisation of the Nile- valley by making the inflow of muddy water from the south. Her popularity was quite con- stant over the years and extra high when Egypt held the Lower Nubian territories. Her crown had a bunch ostrich plumes and her animal was the gazelle. In the picture bove right she is seen breast-feeding the pharaoh.
