Anouke

Anouke was an Egyptian warlike goddess, possibly of Syrian origin, represented as a woman with a spear in her hand, and with a peculiar crown formed of high feathers curving outwardly from a white bonnet upon her head. She was the third member of the great Nubian Triad, and her worship dates to the period of Osirtesen III, of the 12th dynasty. Her festival took place on the 28th of Paophi and the 30th of Athyr.
