  • 05 16, 2023

Anuket (or Anukis, her Greek name) is a Nubian goddess, represented as a lady with a crown of feathers or reeds, with a scepter, and the well-known ankh of Ancient Egyptian culture. Her name means "she who embraces", and she was venerated in Sehel and Elephantine.

Near the first cataract of the Nile River, from the Middle Empire onwards, she was venerated together with her parents, Khnum and Satis, as a sacred triad: the triad of Elephantine. Before, however, she was considered the daughter of God Amun Ra.

The animal that represented her was the gazelle, which symbolized delicacy and tenderness. In this aspect, she was shown as the "mother of the king", suckling the pharaoh as a maternal and protective figure.

She was known as the "ruler of Nubia". She was considered the goddess of lust, because being associated with the Nile, she represented the fertilization of the land by flooding when the river overflowed.

With the passage of time and the meeting of different cultures, she was identified with the goddess Isis in Dendera and File and was even linked to Nephthys later.

The main center of worship of Anukis, as we know it to this day, was the temple on the island of Sehel, although she was venerated throughout Nubia, in Elephantine, File, Komir, Dendera, and Deir el-Medina.

Every year, the feast dedicated to her took place on the 7th day of the month of God Thoth. It was the moment that coincided with the flooding of the Nile River. In these festivities, it was customary for people to leave as an offering gold, jewels, and precious objects, which were thrown into the water in gratitude for the fertility of the fields.

Part of the custom included gastronomy. On these days, it was possible to eat certain types of fish that were forbidden during the rest of the year.
