Ankt is also a variant spelling of the name of the goddess Anuket, with whom Anouke shares little similarity.
Ankt (sometimes spelt Anouke) was a goddess of war worshipped by certain groups in ancient Egypt. It is believed that Anouke was a goddess from Asia Minor, worshiped by immigrants to Egypt. This war goddess was usually shown wearing a curved and feathered crown and carrying a spear, or bow and arrows. She was later assimilated into ancient Egyptian religion, and identified as Neith, who by that time had developed aspects of a war goddess.
