Imiut

Imiut fetish Imiut

Imiut was an ancient god of mummification. His name means "He Who is in His Wrappings". He was not generally depicted in art, instead being represented by the Imuit fetish which was used during the mummification process and may have been linked with his mummy wrappings. He was never a particularly famous god and was pretty much absorbed by Anubis (who took his name as an epithet) and Osiris (who was often depicted with the Imiut fetish).
