Is there any specific god/goddess that you need to know about?

I'd appreciate any extra information on Nephthys...most mythology books and sites barely touch on her.

hah, when you typed the link, you put a capital "o" instead of a numeric zero.

That should work Smile

Edit >> I did the exact same thing when I was typing out the link, too! Laughing

Well, i think that they are the main ones if they come from the main family tree. I have that. The main ones I know of are:
Nun, Re, Shu, Tefnut, Geb, Nut, Seth, Nephthys, Osiris, Isis, Hathor, Horus, and Anubis. Then there's also the canopic jars but I dont think that they are part of the main gods...

Which one? I'm not to keen on either Rolling Eyes
Both have been confounded and aspects of one is ascribed to the other.
So which Horus/Heru?; The Elder, The Hawk "Fadi" being the word for "God", Heru-ur "the Great", Heru-merit "Horus of the two Eyes" of the Sun and Moon, Heru-nub "the Golden Horus", Heru-khent-khat, Heru-khent-an-maa "Horus dwelling in blindness", Heru-khuti "of two Horizones, Heru-sam-taui "uniter of North and South"Heru-hekenu, Heru-behutet, or the plain "Horus the Sun god" and "Horus the Son of Osirius and Isis" or Heru-p-khart "Horus the child" also known as Harpocrates whom became an "avenger of his father Osiris"?

Study the aspects of Nephthys and you'll see why what is consider the "unmanifested" hasn't been touched on. Whom's heiroglyph is the "Ka" being double of what was or is manifested as "Isis" being the "Heart" "Ab" which is left behind on the sphere of the living. Or she could very well be the name of Isis's when Set was in power of the throne till Horus regain power known as the restoration of royal power called the "Wadjet" as a Goddess known as the "original" mother.

Most of these Horuses you list are merely names given to the Horus Harpokrates at different phases of his life. Even Horus 'the elder', (the God of the Sky who flew the deceased to heaven in some myths) was later assimilated with Harpokrates.

With regards to Nephthys, I understand nothing of what SerqSekhet just wrote (Whom's???), but in truth she is seldom mentioned in Egyptian mythology anyway, so there is little to write. She aids Isis in many of her quests, and we learn precious little about her in the Myths of Isis and Osiris, and there is also some interesting material in "The Burden of Isis". She also comforts newborn children (Isis is the midwife), and aided Anubis in the wrapping of the deceased. It was after all Nephthys who orginally represented the opposite to Isis- night, decay and darkness. There's loads more info in the book recommended by Maatkara- I got a copy of it for Christmas and it is fantastic.

Oh yeah- and she also features in the Book of the Dead.[/url]
