Egyptian tomb adventure Please note that unfortunately there is an error in this game.

However, Imsety should contain the liver and Hapy the lungs. If you like this you may also like... The Three Pyramids Can you prepare our high priest for the afterlife before the sun rises?

The Myth of Osiris and Isis by Whitney Bayuk Ancient Egyptians were very interesting people. They believed in many gods and myths that were made to explain the world and its wonders. One of the most famous families of gods is the children of Geb and Nut, who are; Osiris, Isis, Seth (also known as Set), and Nephthys. People probably know of these gods more than others because of the famous myth of Isis and Osiris. Geb and Nut are the son and daughter of Shu and Tefnut. Geb and Nut had two daughters and two sons. Osiris was given the fruit, plants, seeds, and rich soil. Set was given the desert and sands, where nothing could grow. Nephthys and Isis were very close. The myth of Osiris and Isis is a very long one, but I will tell it as simply as I can. Set was very jealous of Osiris because he was more important than him. Meanwhile, the casket had been swept onto shore. Unfortunately, one night Set was hunting and he saw the familiar chest. Isis was inconsolable. Isis then went back to raise her son.
