In Egyptian mythology, Imseti (also transcribed Imset, Amset, Amsety, Mesti, and Mesta) was a funerary deity, one of the Four sons of Horus, who were associated with the canopic jars, specifically the one that contained the liver. Unlike his brothers, Imsety was not associated with any animal and was always depicted as human. Isis was considered his protector, and was himself considered patron of the direction of the south.
