    Anubis: God of Embalming

    Anubis was the god of embalming and the dead. Since jackals were often seen in

    cemeteries, the ancient Egyptians believed that Anubis watched over the dead.

    Anubis was the god who helped to embalm Osiris after he was killed by Seth. Thus,

    he was the god who watched over the process of mummifying people when they

    died. Priests often wore a mask of Anubis during mummification ceremonies.
