In Egyptian Mythology, Imseti (also Imset, Amset, sety, Mesti, and Mesta) was a funerary deity, one of the Four Sons of Horus, who were associated with the Canopic jars, specifically the one which contained the liver. Unlike his brothers, Imsety was not associated with any animal and was always depicted as human. The early form of Isis was considered his protector. The other three were Duamutef, Hapy and Qebehseneuf. They were born from a lotus flower and were solar gods associated with the creation. They were retrieved from the waters of Nut by Sobek on the orders of Ra. It was believed that Anubis gave them the funerary duties of mummification, the Opening of the Mouth, the burial of Osiris and all men. Horus later made them protectors of the four cardinal points (north, south, east and west). In the Hall of Ma'at they sat on a lotus flower in front of Osiris. Most commonly, however, they were remembered as the protectors of the internal organs of the deceased. Each son protected an organ, and each son was protected by a goddess.
