Toth

Toth

In ancient Egyptian religion, he is depicted as a man with the head of a baboon or ibis, called the scribe of the gods. According to E.A. Wallis Budge, in Egyptian Magic, Toth is the lord of divine words, possessor of all knowledge, god of magic who gave Osiris words of power which enabled him to defeat his enemies, reconstitute his body, become king of the underworld and god of the dead. In Ancient Egyptian Myths and Legends, Lewis Spece asserted that through Toth the gates to the realm of the dead were opened to the deceased and he was protected from its horrors.
