Anput is a goddess in ancient Egyptian religion. Her name is written in hieroglyphs as jnpwt (reconstructed in Middle Egyptian as /ʔan.ˈpa.wat/ or /jan.ˈpa.wat/). In English, her name is also rendered Anupet, Input, Inpewt and Yineput. As the female version of her husband Anubis, who was known as jnpw to the Egyptians, Anput's name ends in a feminine "t" suffix. She is the goddess of funerals and mummification, as well as the mother of Kebechet and possibly Ammit.
She was often depicted as a pregnant or nursing jackal, a jackal wielding knives. She is also depicted as a woman, with the headdress of a jackal laying down with a feather. Probably the most notable example is that of the triad of Menkaure, Hathor and Anput. She was occasionally depicted as a woman with the head of a jackal, but this is very rare.
