Anubis, translit. jnpw, supervised the embalming as Lord-of-the-Booth (i.e. the booth where embalming was performed), took the dead as the "conductor of souls" to be weighed before the judge of the infernal regions and guarded the Cities of the Dead.
The Speech of Anpu:He was represented as a canine, perhaps an Egyptian jackal,  a kind of wild dog or perhaps a guard dog. Therianthropically he was depicted with a canine head and tail. As the main subordinate of Osiris he was in charge of order in the Beyond:
Who are the gods who are in the train of Horus?But Anubis was more than a benevolent usher of the dead
Deliver thou the scribe Nebseni, whose word is truth, from the Watchers, who carry murderous knives, who possess cruel fingers, and who would slay those who are in the following of Osiris.His parents were usually given as Osiris  in combination with either Nephthys  or Isis, or Sakhmet, but in some myths he was fathered by Re or Seth,  while as mother Hesat  and Bastet  are mentioned. With the Mnevis-bull and the Hesat-cow he formed a triad at Atfih. In the 17th Upper Egyptian nome he was connected to the Bata-bull. After the early period of the Old Kingdom, he was superseded by Osiris as god of the dead, being relegated to a supporting role as a god of the funeral cult and of the care of the dead. The black colour represented the colour of human corpses after they had undergone the embalming process.
In the Book of the Dead, he was depicted as presiding over the weighing of the heart of the deceased in the Hall of the Two Truths.
The principal sanctuary of Anubis was the necropolis in Memphis and in other cities. He was also known as Khenty-Imentiu (Khentamenti etc) - "Chief of the Westerners" - a reference to the Egyptian belief that the realm of the dead lay to the west in association with the setting sun, and to their custom of building cemeteries on the west bank of the Nile, a title also conferred upon Osiris from the late Old Kingdom onwards.
The Greeks equated him with Hermes (Hermanubis).
