Ament, underworld gates keeper.

God of the gates of the underworld, have the appearance of a woman dressed in the robes of a queen.

Ament is the consort of Aken, and it is she who greets the souls of the newly dead, offering them bread and water at the gates of the underworld following their arrival. Not truly worshipped, but mentioned in many hymns and passages of The Book of the Dead.
