Anuket was the personification and goddess of the Nile river in the Egyptian mythology in Elephantine, at the start of the Nile's journey through Egypt, and in nearby regions of Nubia.

Name

In Ancient Egyptian, she was known as Anuket, Anaka, [1] or Anqet. [2] Her name meant the "Clasper" or "Embracer". [1] In Greek, this became Anoukis (Ανουκις), [1] sometimes also spelled Anukis.[ citation needed] In the interpretatio graeca, she was considered equivalent to Hestia or Vesta. [1]
