:"Ankt is also a variant spelling of the name of the goddess Anuket, with whom Anouke shares little similarity".Ankt (sometimes spelt Anouke) was a goddess of war worshipped by certain groups in ancient Egypt. It is believed that Anouke was a goddess from Asia Minor, worshiped by immigrants to ancient Egypt. This war goddess was shown usually as wearing a curved and feathered crown and carrying a spear, or bow and arrows. Within Egypt, she was later assimilated into their mythology, and identified as Neith, who by that time had developed aspects of a war goddess.
