So you think you know your ancient Egyptian mythology, eh? Let's find out!
Osiris was the kind and just mythical king who was murdered by his brother Set and revived by his wife Isis. He then became the lord of the underworld.
Anubis is the Egyptian god of mummification and the afterlife. According to legend, after Osiris was chopped up into little pieces, Anubis was the one who helped Isis put him back together and preserve him as the very first mummy.
As Osiris's wife and sister, Isis was the most popular deity of the ancient Egyptian pantheon. She was considered as the other of all pharaohs, and one interpretation of her name is "Queen of the Throne."
Horus was the son of Osiris and Isis, and he ended up defeating Set, who had plotted to murder his father.
Ra, the sun god, is the creator of the universe. He was also commonly depicted as a man with the head of a beetle.
Also known as Seth, Set is the evil god of war, chaos and storms. His symbols included the crocodile and hippopotamus.
Amun is the Egyptian god of sun and air. Since no one knows what he really looks like, the "hidden god" is often depicted as a pharaoh.
Khonsu is the god of moon and time. He was also revered as the god of healing.
Often depicted as a cow, Hathor was considered as the primeval goddess who gave birth to all the other deities.
Sobek was the ancient crocodile god of strength and power. As a result, his symbol, the crocodile, represented power, virility and fertility.
