Hermanubis
Hermanubis (Greek) Heru-em-Anpu (Egyptian) [Anubis in connection with Horus] The aspect of Anubis (Anpu) connected with the wisdom of the underworld, particularly in regard to its Mysteries, hence very little is known of this phase except what is mentioned mainly by Plutarch and Apuleius. In this aspect Anubis was " 'the revealer of the mysteries of the lower world' -- not of Hell or Hades as interpreted, but of our Earth (the lowest world of the septenary chain of worlds) -- and also of the sexual mysteries. . . . The fact is that esoterically, Adam and Eve while representing the early third Root Race -- those who, being still mindless, imitated the animals and degraded themselves with the latter -- stand also as the dual symbol of the sexes. Hence Anubis, the Egyptian god of generation, is represented with the head of an animal, a dog or a jackal, and is also said to be the 'Lord of the under world' or 'Hades' into which he introduces the souls of the dead (the reincarnating entities), for Hades is in one sense the womb, as some of the writings of the Church Fathers fully show" (TG 139-40).
