Goddess of the West and the regions located there, particularly the underworld (thought to be in the west). As early as the Old Kingdom, texts express the wish that the goddess would stretch her arms out to the deceased to receive him. The goddess shares this role with Hathor, who gradually supplanted Imentet from the New Kingdom on. Imentet never had her own cult, but offerings were made to her in the tomb. She is usually depicted as a woman with a standard on her head on which is a feather and often a falcon. She is often depicted on the bottom of sarcophagi.
