Before the Greeks arrived in ancient Egypt, Anubis was known as Anpu or Inpu.

Anubis is the Greek rendering of the name. For thousands of years, Anubis was worshipped all over the ancient country.

He was a major part of Egyptian mythology and his recognisable canine head has become synonymous with Egypt.

When you arrived at the Underworld, Anubis would judge your heart. If you had lead a good life and had been honest and kind to people, your heart would be light and thus you would be allowed to enter the afterlife.

However, if you had sinned and your heart was heavy, Anubis would give your heart to Ammit to devour - condemning you to wander the underworld for eternity.
