An Egyptian necklace of Anubis
Anubis is a funerary god of ancient Egypt, master of the necropolis and protector of embalmers, represented as a large black canid lying on its belly (probably a jackal, a African wolf or a wild dog) or as a man with a canid's head.
The meaning of the word "Anubis" ("Inpou" in ancient Egyptian, "Anoub" in Coptic, "Ἄνουβις / Anoubis" in ancient Greek), remains obscure: many explanations have been advanced, but it may simply be an onomatopoeia translating the howling of the jackal. The canine form of the god may have been inspired to the ancient Egyptians by the behavior of canids, often opportunistic scavengers wandering at night in necropolises.
Jewelry from ancient Egypt
The civilization of ancient Egypt took shape around 3150 BC with the political unification of Upper Egypt in the south and Lower Egypt in the north under the first king's reign and developed over more than three millennia.
Its history is interspersed with a series of politically stable periods, interspersed with several more troubled intermediate periods.
Ancient Egypt reached its peak under the New Kingdom and then entered a period of slow decline. The country suffered repeated assaults by foreign powers in this late period, and the reign of the pharaohs officially ended in 30 BC when the Roman Empire conquered Egypt as a province (after the suicide of the pharaoh Cleopatra).
