The lips of Osiris Ani are the lips of Anpu... (24) In almost the same words, the Papyrus of Nu joins the divinities Osiris, Ptah, Anpu, Hathor, Horus, Isis, and others to the body of Re. (25) In the Memphite theology Atum, Horus, Thoth, and the company of gods became the limbs of Ptah. (26) Syncretization of this sort, though appearing absurd to us today, actually helped to preserve the original idea against the eroding forces of cultural assimilation. Faced with a growing number of competing deities, the priests proclaimed: there was only one great god in the beginning, whose body encompassed a circle of subordinate deities. In a subsequent development of the myth, the Heaven Man passed into a mythical-philosophical explanation of our Earth and the material universe as a ...

Whilst one Egyptologist I consulted agreed that the name could be read, assuming "honorific transposition", as "child of Thoth" (but not strictly "son"), Professor I. R.

The latter is, according to them, "later" also Osiris. Osiris must have sorely troubled them, for in another place they equate him with "Zeus-Jupiter-Marduk-Athura [sic Mazda".

Then come the children, Mars, Mercury and Venus, the others (Neptune, Uranus, the asteroids, and Pluto) being invisible. Mercury (Hermes, Thoth) is more important, earlier and absolutely, than Mars, even though it is smaller in the sky. This we think is significant. Striking, too, is the widespread ancient insistence that planet Venus, the brightest and most conspicuous starry object to the eye, is an offspring of Jupiter; for its size and brilliance should have identified it as the ruler of the planetary gods.
