Each entry includes a remarkable cache of information, including the deity's personality, forms and symbols, relatives, name in hieroglyphs, festivals, worship areas, and more.

From Bast to Harmachis (the spirit that resides in the Giza Sphinx), this book contains everything you would ever want to know about studying and celebrating Egyptian spirituality.
