He was said to have killed two serpents and entwined them on a staff as a symbol of his power; this image borrowed from the Sumerians , actually was passed on to the Greeks who associated it with their god Hermes and called it the caduceus.

Terms & Concepts
Beer was referred to as "the milk of Heset". She was later absorbed into Hathor. She was part of the Triad of Heliopolis along with Mnevis and Anubis. Hetepes-Sekhus - A personification of the Eye or Ra who appears as a cobra goddess in the afterlife and destroys the enemies of Osiris. She is depicted in the company of crocodiles. Horus - An early avian god who became one of the most important deities in ancient Egypt. Associated with the sun, sky, and power, Horus became linked with the king of Egypt as early as the First Dynasty c.
Although the name 'Horus' might refer to a number of avian deities it principally designates two: Horus the Elder, one of the first five gods born at the beginning of creation, and Horus the Younger who was the son of Osiris and Isis. Following the rise in popularity of the Osiris Myth, Horus the Younger became one of the most important gods in Egypt. In the story, after Osiris is murdered by his brother Set, Horus is raised by his mother in the Delta swamps. When he comes of age he battles his uncle for the kingdom and wins, restoring order to the land.
The kings of Egypt, with some exceptions, all linked themselves with Horus in life and with Osiris in death. The king was thought to be the living incarnation of Horus and, through him, the god gave all good things to his people. He is usually depicted as a man with the head of a hawk but is represented by many different images. His symbols are the Eye of Horus and the hawk. Hu - God of the spoken word, personification of the first word spoken by Atum Ra at the dawn of creation which brought all into being. Linked with Sia and Heka. Sia represented the heart, Hu the tongue, and Heka their underlying force which gave them their power.

Hu is often seen as a representation of the power of Heka or Atum and is depicted in funerary texts guiding the soul to the afterlife. In the story of the creation of the world, Atum is angered by the intimate relationship between Geb earth and Nut sky and so separates them, declaring that Nut may not give birth to her children on any day of the year.
The god Thoth appeared and gambled with Iah for five days worth of moonlight. He won and divided the moonlight hours into days which, because they were not part of the days of the year decreed by Atum, Nut could give birth in.
The Egyptians regulated their calendar with these five magical days. Iah was eventually absorbed into the god Khonsu. Iabet presided over the eastern deserts and, in time, came to personify them. She was also known as "Cleanser of Ra" who bathed the sun before it appeared in the dawn sky and personified the freshness of the morning sun.

Which of the Ancient Egyptian Gods Were the Most Important?
She was known as "Mistress of Magical Protection" and is first referenced in the Pyramid Texts as protecting and nourishing the king. Ishtar - The Mesopotamian goddess of love, sexuality, and war. She was originally Inanna of the Sumerians and Akkadians, who became Ishtar to the Assyrians and influenced the development of other similar goddesses such as Aphrodite of the Greeks, Astarte of the Phoenicians , Hathor of the Egyptians, and Sauska of the Hittites, among others.
She was probably first introduced to Egypt through trade in the Early Dynastic Period c. Isis - The most powerful and popular goddess in Egyptian history. She was associated with virtually every aspect of human life and, in time, became elevated to the position of supreme deity, "Mother of the Gods", who cared for her fellow deities as she did for human beings. Her Egyptian name, Eset, means "Goddess of the Throne" because of her association with the monarch.
She cared for people in life and appeared to them after death to help guide them safely to paradise.
During the time of the Roman Empire , she was worshipped in every corner of their realm from Britain through Europe to Anatolia. The Cult of Isis was the strongest opponent of the new religion of Christianity between the 4th-6th centuries CE, and iconography, as well as tenets of belief, of the Isis cult were incorporated into the new faith.

Kagemni - A vizier to the king Sneferu c. The book was considered so important it was required instruction for children of the monarchy. He was deified after death and worshipped as a god of wisdom. Kek and Kauket - Gods of obscurity and night, members of the original Ogdoad of Hermopolis.
