Nephthys was the goddess of mourning in the Ancient Egyptian religion. She was the goddess of night, rivers, sleep, nature and mourning.

She was a friend and protecter of the dead. Nephthys was important in Ancient Egyptian culture because they considered the afterlife to be very important. She always stood at the head of the coffin that would take the dead to the underworld with outspread wings.
