Satis is an ancient Egyptian goddess of war, hunting, and fertility. She protected Egypt's southern border with Nubia and came to personify the former annual flooding of the Nile which in turn is associated with the appearance of the star Sothis. Satis was part of the Elephantine Triad with the god Khnum as her husband and the goddess Anoukis as their daughter.
