Anta

Anta a warlike Egyptian goddess, who is generally represented as wearing a white mitre similar to that of Osiris, ornamented with two feathers, and brandishing a kind of battle-axe in her left hand, while she holds a spear with her- right. She is very rarely represented on the Egyptian sculptures, and is not found before the time of Amenhotep I, of the 18th dynasty. She was properly a Syrian or Asiatic goddess.
