Egyptian Deities

Ennead. Terminology[edit] Egyptian mythology established multiple such groupings of deities, known as Pesedjets.


The Pyramid Texts of the 5th and 6th dynasties mention the Great Pesedjet, the Lesser Pesedjet, the Dual Pesedjet, plural Pesedjets, and even the Seven Pesedjets. Some pharaohs established pesedjets that incorporated themselves among the deities. The most notable case is Seti I of the 19th dynasty, who in his temple at Redesiyah worshipped a pesedjet that combined six important deities with three deified forms of himself.

His birthday was celebrated on 16 July. Originally he was, according to legend, given Upper Egypt to rule while his handsome brother [ or sometimes it's said his nephew ] Horus ruled over Lower Egypt.
