A late-period burial at Giza of a young woman with a Hatmehyt amulet.

I call Hatmehyt "Foremost" and Wepwawet "Wepwy".
No nicknames for Sekhmet or Wenut.
Occasionally Seshat is "Lady of the B-Tree" or "Mistress of the Heap"
Ihy is "The Golden Calf". I sometimes pester him about musical stuff.

There will probably be photos of you on the Internet Archive. That should give you worldwide access from the Duat.

It's surprising just how much is being learned about the pyramid-builders recently. I attended a lecture by Richard Redding -The Bones Speak: Archaeofaunal Research Today, who has been excavating at Giza and looking at animal bones. We know where the workers slept, where the administrators lived, and where the priest's houses were. And we know what they ate!

We also know some of the routes that the herds of cattle were driven along, coming up from pastures in the delta, and what age the cattle were when they were slaughtered.

Pyramids and Protein

The Diet of the Pyramid Builders

This is Archaeology?

Fun tidbit- The beef the priests ate consisted almost entirely of forelegs. Because that's what was being offered in the temple, then reverted to them.

There's also a tendency of some people to 'explain away' all gods by saying that they were kings/famous people whose legend grew and grew after their death. Or that all gods were invented to explain natural phenomena that we now can explain with science.

Welcome Arrowyn!

There's a phrase from the Coffin Texts:

Bast the daughter of Atum, the first-born daughter of the Lord of All, she is your protection until day dawns

Quote from: Woodwings
What's your story called, if you don't mind my asking?

It's called "A Wrecking Bar, a Chocolate Bar, and a Ka Offering for Naneferkaptah" - It was published in an anthology of 'pagan' (polytheist, mostly) science fiction called Shining Cities, published by Neos Alexandria. I'm doing a revision of it with some additional fun stuff and will be releasing it as a standalone in a few months.

Quote from: Darbuka? That's a kind of drum, isn't it? Sounds interesting, what kind of tone do they produce? [/quote

It's the Turkish version of the Doumbek, or Egyptian Tabla. The sort of thing you'd hear in Arabic or bellydance music. You can get them with aluminum bodies pretty inexpensively, including some beautifully-engraved ones.

Welcome Woodwings!

I tend to moosh all the Herus together, and don't do much with them either, so you aren't alone in that.   ;)

Longtime SF/Fantasy geek- I'm currently writing Kemetic-themed Science Fiction and Fantasy with one story published.

I'm also one of the music people around here- I'm currently learning darbuka.
