Appearing as a ram-headed human, Khnum
was worshipped most at Antinoe and Elephantine. He was another
creator-god, represented as fashioning human beings on his pottery
wheel. His consort was variously Heqet, Neith, or Sati.
See also Sati.
The third member (with his parents Amen
and Mut) of the great triad of Thebes. Khons was the god of the
moon. The best-known story about him tells of him playing the
ancient game senet ("passage") against Thoth, and wagering a portion
of his light. Thoth won, and because of losing some of his light,
Khons cannot show his whole glory for the entire month, but must wax
and wane. The main temple in the enclosure at Karnak is dedicated to
See also Amen, Mut, Thoth.
Considered the wife of Thoth and the
daughter of Ra by various traditions, Maat's name implies "truth"
and "justice" and even "cosmic order", but there is no clear English
equivalent. She is an anthropomorphic personification of the concept
maat and as such has little mythology. Maat was represented as a
tall woman with an ostrich feather (the glyph for her name) in her
hair. She was present at the judgement of the dead; her feather was
balanced against the heart of the deceased to determine whether he
had led a pure and honest life.
See also Thoth.
|Min (Menu, Amsu)
A form of Amen depicted holding a flail
(thought to represent a thunderbolt in Egyptian art) and with an
erect penis; his full name was often given as Menu-ka-mut-f ("Min,
Bull of his Mother"). Min was worshiped as the god of virility;
lettuces were offered as sacrifice to him and then eaten in hopes of
procuring manhood; and he was worshiped as the husband of the
goddess Qetesh, goddess of love and femininity.
See also Amen, Qetesh.
|Month (Mentu, Men Thu)
The principal god of Thebes before the
rise of the Amen cult; appeared as a falcon-headed man and often
united with Horus. Primarily a war god.
|Mut (Golden Dawn, Auramooth)
The wife of Amen in Theban tradition;
the word mut in Egyptian means "mother", and she was the mother of
Khonsu, the moon god.
See also Amen, Khons.
The youthful son of Ptah and Sekhmet,
connected with the rising sun; depicted as a youth crowned with or
seated upon a lotus blossom.
See also Ptah.
|Neith (Net, Neit; Golden Dawn, Thoum-aesh-neith)
A very ancient goddess of war, worshiped
in the Delta; revered as a goddess of wisdom, identified with Athena
by the Greeks; in later traditions, the sister of Isis, Nephthys,
and Selket, and protectress of Duamutef, the god of the stomach of
the deceased. Mother of the crocodile god Sobek.
See also Sobek.
Upper Egyptian patron goddess,
represented as a vulture in iconography, and often part of the crown
of the pharaoh, along with her Lower Egyptian counterpart Edjo.
See also Edjo.
|The youngest child of Geb and Nut. The sister and wife of Set, andsister of Isis and Osiris; also the mother (variantly by Set or by Osiris) of Anubis. She abandoned Set when he killed Osiris, and assisted Isis in the care of Horus and the resurrection of Osiris. She was, along with her sister, considered the special protectress of the dead, and she was the guardian of Hapi, the protector of the lungs of the deceased. See also Isis, Osiris, Set.
The goddess of the sky, daughter of Shu
and Tefnut, sister and wife of Geb, mother of Osiris, Set, Isis, and
Nephthys. Described by Crowley in his Magick in Theory and Practice
thus: "Infinite space is called the goddess NUIT."
Nut was generally depicted as a woman with blue skin, and her body covered with stars, standing on all fours, leaning over her husband, representing the sky arched over the earth.
Her relationship to Hadit is an invention of Crowley's with no basis in Egyptology, save only that Hadit was often depicted underneath Nut - one finds Nut forming the upper frame of a scene, and the winged disk Hadit floating beneath, silently as always. This is an artistic convention, and there was no marriage between the two in Egyptian myth.
See also Geb, Shu.
