What ancient Egyptian demoness was called the "Devourer of the Dead"?
Ammit's body was part lion, hippopotamus and crocodile - the three largest "man-eating" animals known to ancient Egyptians. In the underworld, if the heart of a person weighed by Anubis was judged to be not pure, Ammit would devour it, and the person undergoing judgement was not allowed to continue their voyage towards Osiris and immortality.
