{Egyptian Deities}

Egypt had by tradition a great variety of gods and goddesses; the total of them all was over 2,000, but many had similar characteristics. The huge diversity is due to the fact that before Egypt was united, the Nile Valley was divided into about 40 areas where the ruling tribe had its own deities. Almost all gods had one thing in common-they had a counterpart of the opposite sex and manifested themselves on earth through animals. Thus hundreds of birds, crocodiles, snakes, frogs, turtles, cows, cats etc. were considered to be the living images of a particular god and a natural and indestructible part of the environment.
