A grey or white jackal-headed god from Egyptian mythology. Apart from the colour of its head he looks identical to Anubis the god of the dead. Wepwawet ushers the souls of others into the Underworld. Some believe that this god was originally a wolf-headed god. It was worshipped at Abydos and Lykopolis which is known as ‘Wolf City’.
