Anat was a Goddess of war and so was also seen to protect the Pharaoh in battle and so was often shown with military gear including a Lance, Axe and Shield. She is also portrayed as wearing a tall crown with feathers. It appears she was almost interchangeable with the Goddess Astarte and at different points was seen as the wife of Seth and Min.

She was adopted into the Egyptian Pantheon from Canaan and the Phoenicians where she was seen as a consort of Baal and is known to have had a dedicated Egyptian cult to her from the late Middle Kingdom[1].
