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