Anubis ( or ;Ancient Greek: Ἄνουβις, Egyptian: jnpw, Coptic: ⲁⲛⲟⲩⲡ Anoup) is the Greek name of a god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion, usually depicted as a canine or a man with a canine head.
The aforementioned Anubis is said to be the son of Set.
Archeologists identified the sacred animal of Anubis as an Egyptian canid, that at the time was called the golden jackal, but recent genetic testing has caused the Egyptian animal to be reclassified as the African golden wolf.

Archeologists identified the sacred animal of Seth as an Egyptian cryptic,the sha, that might be an ancestral species of the Fennic fox.
In the Ptolemaic period (350–30 BC), when Egypt became a Hellenistic kingdom ruled by Greek pharaohs, Anubis was merged with the Greek god Hermes, becoming Hermanubis. The two gods were considered similar because they both guided souls to the afterlife.
- In Stargate SG-1, Anubis is a Goa’uld, a parasitic alien who rules part of the galaxy using a human host and claiming to be a god. Unlike most of his race, Anubis has some limited claim to being an actual god, as he once “ascended” to a higher plane of existence and gained great power and knowledge as a result.

Anubis is a very classy restaurant on the south side of town. Marlon and his family are skilled at the art of hosting fine dining. As you enter, you take in the cool Egyptian-style art, and an entertaining and inviting bar. The best of course is getting a wonderful meal in great ambiance at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.
Son of Anubis: Wepwawet
Wepwawet, a deity associated with the city of Asyut in Upper Egypt, later called Lycopolis (the City of the Wolves) in the Graeco-Roman period. Wepwawet is often confused with the god Anubis since they are both depicted as a man with the head of a jackal or wolf. But Wepwawet was usually shown with a wolf head, hence the name of his city. While shown in jackal form he still had gray fur, more like a wolf than a jackal.
Wepwawet was known as the Opener of the Way – the god who guided the souls of the dead through Duat (an area in Egyptian belief that resembles the Romans Catholic idea of purgatory) and was also believed to be incredibly fierce.
AS Wepwawet became assimilated into the traditional Egyptian pantheon, he became portrayed as the son of Anubis (probably because they look so much alike), although some traditions describe him as the son of the serpent god Set.
In later Egyptian art, Wepwawet was depicted as a wolf or a jackal, or as a man with the head of a wolf or a jackal. Even when considered a jackal, Wepwawet usually was shown with grey, or white fur, reflecting his lupine origins.
