An Egyptian god of the underworld. He is responsible for the rebirth of a person in the afterlife. His worship originated in the ninth nome of Lower Egypt, and the center of his cult was located at Busiris. He is depicted with a high conical crown with two feather plumes. The crook and flail are his symbols, and because those are also the symbols of Osiris, Andjety was often associated with him. He also known as Anezti and Anedjti.
