AMMUT is an Egyptian crocodile Goddess whose name means "female devourer of the dead". She is depicted with the head of a crocodile, the neck and front body of a lion, and the rear body of a hippopotamus. The combination of land and water animals signifies the fact that she left no avenue of escape to the damned. Ammut sits at the place of final judgment, beside the scale on which the deceased's heart is weighed against Maat's Feather of Truth. Other epithets for her include "GREAT OF DEATH" and "EATER OF HEARTS".
