Hapi was one of the sons of Horus depicted in funerary literature as protecting the throne of Osiris in the Underworld. Hapi is depicted as a baboon-headed mummified human on funerary furniture and especially the canopic jars that held the organs of the deceased (Hapi's jar held the lungs). Later Hermetic philosophers would equate Hapi with the element of air because of his association with the funerary protectress Nebt-het and the direction of east.
