This dictionary not only lists famous Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses (such as Hathor, Isis, Osiris and Geb), but also foreign and lesser-known deities, from Aken to Yamm. It presents all those worshipped at some point in Ancient Egyptian history. The information of each god and goddess given include the deity's attributes, including sceptres, crowns and animal form.
